Since last weekend, I had a chance to get some more work done on new saw tote I’m making. The next step after laying out the tote is to rough out the shape of the tote. I’m still getting used to my turning saw (I have a hard time cutting square edges) so I saw a little outside the lines. As you can see in the photo above, I also bored holes to relieve the some of the curves. Below is a photo of the rough sawn tote.
After roughing out the tote, I used rasps and a float to get it shaped down to the layout lines. At this point, I try to get all the edges square. Here are a couple of photos.
From lumber to this point has taken about 3 hours at this point. The next step will be to saw the kerf for the saw plate and boring the holes for the saw nuts. I’ll cover those steps in the next post.
Until next time. . .
