- William needs to secure a small workpiece for plowing a groove.
- Paul is curious about a long jointer plane with a narrow iron.
- Pete is trying to decide between a frame saw and a bandsaw for resawing.
- Josh needs advice for flattening the soles of some old wooden planes.
Today’s main topic was inspired by a question from Patron John Baird and is a discussion on hand saws for cutting curves. Here are the links to the blades and saws I referred to in the discussion.

I just wanted to point out that Highland Woodworking in Atlanta, GA has a few frame saw offerings. They also sell a Japanese style blade, called the Turbo-Cut, for use in traditional frame saws. One being more suited for cutting curves at 5/16” wide. You can’t find it here: https://www.highlandwoodworking.com/narrowturbo-cutbladeforclassic400framesaw.aspx
