    Log to marking gauge

    A brief progression of a red oak log turned into a marking gauge. Manual sawing of a small 3"x3"x18" block rough hewn by hatchet from a pretty well bug infested log. Tough work, but I\'m surprised it went as smoothly as it did after learning to sharpen and wax the saw.

    Handsaw storage ideas?

    I have a new handsaw on order and don't have decent handsaw storage in my garage. It currently consists of various nails wherever there was a little free space. I would appreciate some ideas on handsaw storage. If your idea happens to include planes - even better. Thanks, Geoff

    Sandvik Handsaw Sharpening

    I have a Sandvik handsaw with "combination crosscut and rip teeth." It has been a great saw for the past 20 years, but badly needs sharpening. Although it was a high quality saw when I bought it, I don't know if it is economical or even possible to sharpen it with those combo teeth. Any...
