Lately, I’ve been burning through some leftover scrap by making some layout tools and bench caddies. These include a long straight edge and two sets of long and short winding sticks made from padauk and a bow for laying out curves made from maple and rawhide. The bench caddies are both made from hard maple and white oak. One of them will eventually find its way to my father’s shop in Colorado. Also pictured are a carving axe made by John Switzer at black bear forge in the foreground (It saw a fair bit of use in roughing out the curve on the straight edge) and my recently completed resaw beast in the background. I’m hoping make a pile of sawdust with the saw soon.
