English Hand Tools with Jim Hendricks


 
  Robert Towell Mitre - Blonde to Brunette, Part 3 14 of 18  

At the beginning of this project I was in two minds about using unconventional but stunning English boxwood or the luxury traditional option of Gabon ebony as the infill and wedge. So... I've decided to do both and then see which best suits.

The Gabon ebony - an expensive choice even in the early 1800s.

Today I roughed out the ebony wedge which gave me another chance to test drive the superb Skelton saws.

Because the SKELTON "Seaton" rip handsaw has a glorious double taper start and easing into the initial cut in this brittle wood was a joy.

... keeping to the line like a glue!

The crosscut Skelton carcass saw then made light work of releasing the block.

What a beautifully crisp and clean cut... straight off the saw!
