    Very nice, interesting design. Something that would make anyone stop at take a second look.

    How are the individual pieces joined?

    I think you made some good choices. I use the grain 10 cabinet makers rasp from Auriou also. In terms of workflow, I feel all these rasps are quite fine, and I like to use something else to do some...

    Mark,
    Thanks for clarifying, I now see the point you were making. Generally speaking, I think I'm a little more optimistic about society than you are, but in support of your point I must confess...
