Keep up the great work, and keep those pictures coming!
Peter,

Thank you and yes my hand skills have improved exponentially and at this point I cut directly to the line which was very much NOT true when I first started.

its what woodworking is all about
Okami,

Thank you very much and you could not be more correct about knowing every aspect of this build and it is wonderful.

Now as to your assertion on the level of my power tools and machines go, you could not be more wrong. I initially thought the same as you but then I was reminded that there are so many tools that I do not have such as a radial arm saw, a radial arm drill press, a good lathe, all sorts of stand alone sanders, any CNC machines and on and on and on. So apparently I have much work to do prior to truly establishing that title?

Fred

Do you have to TELL it what to do? Or does it just know?

Seriously, the bench is looking GREAT.

And you're going to FEEL great after your knee surgery.

Of course, that handy saw will probably have finished the whole bench by itself by then...
Laurie,

You have no idea how long it took me to train just that one saw. However, we are now connected through a neural network which is very helpful with my carpal tunnel.

Trevor much like Okami's assertions on the power tool end it is equally not true on the hand tool end. For heaven's sake, I don't even have all of the different sets of Tasai chisels that he has made and don't get me started on the Koyamachi chisels. As far as planes and saws go, I am vastly under represented. Take a look at the book by Russell Jennings, which I highly recommend to any hand tool aficionado. Antique Woodworking Tools It is 528 pages with over 1000 pictures and illustrations. It is also not cheap at $180 but wow. Now, to my point, the Russell Jennings book is strictly on HIS hand tools. My meager collection would merely rate a page or two. It is seriously a fantastic book and collection.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments.

Fred

David Russel appears to have what we might call a problem, we should help by housing some of his insanely large collection of tools. I mean damn that's a lot of swag.

Trevor,

I could not agree with you more. I do not know how you would even amass such a collection. However, I'll bet he had a great time working on it.

I think I may sate my lust for tools vicariously through your threads Fred.

The bench is shaping up nicely

Greg,

Sate away.

Thank you for your extremely kind words about my bench. Coming from you they mean an awful lot.

Fred
