Ask around in your locale. I found an orchardist, an engineer, and a local retired guy that all have these types of saws. Also, if you live in an area with any Amish, often many members of those communities have saws, but you have to get the wood to them.
The older issues were much better. Fewer tool reviews. More craftsman interviews, quirkier stuff, great techniques and tips and making your own tools and jigs. Not just purchasing your way to proficiency. Take a look at your archive from the 1980s - that was great stuff.
Wouldn't it be much quicker and easier to stack it in the way that Lee Grindinger writes about in Tauton's "Selecting and Drying Wood" - page 107 has a nice illustration.
Pretty sure the founder of Fine Woodworking Tage Frid documents how to do this in "Tage Frid Teaches Woodworking Volume 1."
That would be great to win that book.
Essential Handplanes (Handplane Essentials) and now learning to use a draw-bore. You guys are doing a great job channeling Chris Schwarz. Good thing your subscription to Popular Woodworking has not run out...
Fine Woodworking used to be the great.
Very cool. Small issue: walnut leaves are compound leaves, the single leaflet on the walnut box is but a part of a larger leaf. Still, very nicely done.
Very cool topic for a book. Is the book also made by hand?
Looks like a good book to have.
Wow! Simply outstanding!
