Shop Update for 12/9/16: Sawing without a Saw Bench


You Don’t Have To Stoop to Saw

This week I answer a question from Bob borne out of my Sawing class at Woodworking in America. Bob isn’t able to bend his knee or lean on it like we would while using a sawbench. He wants to know if there is an alternate method for accurate sawing that doesn’t require the use of his knee. Not only is there an alternative, sometimes the overhand method I show is the best method when working with thin or narrow boards.

I also talk briefly about my new dust collection set up and stiffening the mobile base I’m using for my Barnes lathe.

Have You Seen the Sawing Class?

The sawing class I gave I Woodworking in America that spawned Bob’s question is available to watch in its entirety. So if you have nothing better to do with your life than watch a 2 hour long class on hand saw types, tooth geometry, and usage…then you might be my kind of person.
