Slabbin’ ain’t easy

I’m always interested to see how different communities solve the same problems. Watch them slab this log (somewhere around 3:00 mins in).

    Wow, that’s awesome. I wonder what it would take to use that crooked knife in place of the scorp or travisher when saddling windsor chairs?

      I tried to use a hook knife of that style to fine tune a Windsor seat I hollowed. I imagine it’d work OK in a soft wood seat like the cedar, especially in partially green wood like he was working with these boxes. In dry walnut it was not easy – I mostly used a carving gouge and a mallet instead.

      Got the knife from kestrel tool. They also make an adze, which would have been the better tool for hollowing chair seat.

    Why is it human nature to have one guy working and another standing around watching?

  3. Eric is totally right. But that was awesome, without a doubt.
