Time to layout the foot before introducing the bandsaw as an option for cutting the curves. Once the shaping has been refined, it’s time to lay out the mortise and tenons and chop the mortises.

    I’ll try this without a bandsaw, helmet, respirator, and vacuum system.

    Now I know why you are a hand tool man, you do look like a plonker in that helmet, a trifle OTT I think LOL 😁

    I laughed out loud watching you use the bandsaw with that goofy-looking helmet. Come on Paul. Did your insurance company make you wear it?

      Dear JD,

      Very much doubt that National Health Services (NHS) is empowered to impose anything on Mr. P. Sellers.

      Kindest regards

        Dear Sven-Olof…

        I wrote “insurance company.” I mentioned nothing about the National Health Service. Here in the US insurance companies often impose restrictions on business owners as a precondition to providing liability insurance. But even so, my remark was made largely tongue-in-cheek.

        In my 35 years of woodworking experience I’ve never seen anyone wearing a face shield and respirator while using a band saw. I thought he looked funny doing so. I’m also confident Paul can take a little ribbing now-and then.

        Kindest regards
        JD Katz

          Yes ok but Paul does not live in America.
          Many people here in UK take our NHS for granted as it’s free , by not taking care of themselves
          I have a band saw and when using it without any form of dust mask my nostrils become clogged ( grotty but fact)
          Yes Paul’s dust mask does nothing for his ‘street cred’ but he is wise to use one. I know of at least one very skilled furniture maker dying of cancer through inhaling dust, as you said, “for 35 years”….so you are lucky

          Dear JD,

          WWMC is a business, most aware of its bread being buttered on the transatlantic side, so you are of course right: there will be insurances, the providers of which are bound to impose quite a lot…

      If you have a beard, dust masks and respirators do not form a seal that keeps dust from drawing in around the mask. Devices like the one Paul is wearing aim at addressing this.

    Blimey, Does anyone give a monkies about what They look like in their workshed?

    Thanks Paul. One part of the video I especially liked was the spokeshave instruction. It seemed to me you provided some new nuggets of info. You had mentioned advancing the blade so it could reach down further when the front and back of the spoke were touching on curve. If you are ever looking for YouTube content to expand tool useage, the spokeshave section in this video would be a candidate.

    I also found it handy how you elaborated on how to do the stop cut method for the inside curve. I wouldn’t have thought about making straight cuts there as well to remove the bulk of the material.
