    in my opinion, it is always worth trying a repair (if the materials in the saw allows for it). One less newly produced saw needed, and one rescued from the trash and put back to use.

    Fantastic Derek!

    That wood grain is really stunning in a subtle way. I like how the long grain is there, as well as the ripples. Usually one is dominant, but here they coexist nicely. Thanks for...

    Hi Joshua,

    yes probably the best solution. Thanks!

    Thanks for your comment Stew!

    I figured milk paint sealed with BLO is tough enough, based on its use on Windsor chairs. But I might have rethink the sealer after figuring out what pigments to use.

    Thanks Mike,

    the pigments I already have, but need to know which of them are safe. Not looking into making/sourcing pigments now (although interesting)

    thats good advice. However, Id like to mix up my own milk paint, because its fun, and I have the ingredients. Therefore the issue of choosing pigment, and there are many pigments...

    yes Derek, your right. My dovetail plane goes only one way :)

    David: there might be one more virtue of tapering only one side of the sliding dovetail. If one only has one dovetail plane (say righthanded) for cutting the male part then tapering both sides means...

    agree on above. I also find that when I get chatter in the first place, it often gets worse. Changing the skew direction or angle helps then, presenting the edge at another angle than the chatter...

    as Warren just stated, a double iron plane is the answer. The block plane is inviting for chamfering and detail work but is not ideal for long grain because of the risk of tear out. I made a block...

    only to second what is already said, I believe working a hollow shape with an inside bevel would not be optimal. For the same reason that gouges for bowl making are outcannel, not incannel gouges.

    Derek, thank you! So straight means horizontal. I guess I have to watch my stance, it could be that my planing resembles the bottom pic more than the top.
