Woodworking in America

I think Wilber Pan has this western saw thing down!


Day two of Woodworking in America was as good as expected! Much was learned and much fun was had. Hand tool Olympics, done, with much heckling :)

    Nik,
    I was glad all of you bloggers stepped up(took the bait) at the HTO. With all of the grousing about Japanese versus western tools I foresee a possible east/west game on the horizon. Same events, different tools. I will bring the western tools, set ups and provide booth space and workers, who will bring the Eastern? We could either run head to heads or just compare end of the day scores. Maybe I could just get my friend Mark Harrell to make me a saw with a handle on each end?
    great photos!
    Mike

    @Mike Siemsen
    Yea we all had a great time!!! The crowd of hecklers that gathers whenever one of the bloggers was competing was impressive!

    It was much more fun to bitch about the eastern vs western than than it actually mattered to any of us. :) at the end of the day I think Wibur made a 1-2 card dovetail and I put in pretty respectable times on the push saws. (although I did have body lean problem on the rip).

    But I would love to see someone step up and offer some Japanese tools for people to try, just to expose them to another way and give them a chance to play with them.
