Most joinery saws have some kind of back, or spine, to stiffen the blade because the blades on these saws are typically quite thin and could easily buckle without some kind of support.
On today’s show, I discuss period finishes, the chisels that I find most useful in the shop, must have hand tool appliances, and hand tool storage options.
All saws need a blade, otherwise they have a hard time cutting wood. So that’s where our saw making process starts.
On today’s show, I discuss planing the end grain of a thick board at an angle, Auriou carving tools, making a frame for a glass panel, fixing miscut mortise and tenon joints, and the dos and don’ts of teaching woodworking classes.
Just one more use for blue (or in this case green) tape.
