A Woodworking Journey

I keep my eye on Craigslist for less expensive wood left over from projects. So far, I’ve had some pretty good luck and last week some one was selling 12 to 13″ wide mahogany so we journeyed over to Bremerton to pick it up this morning.  We  decided to make a day of it since getting to Bremerton requires an hour ride on the ferry.

Bridge City Saw

Don’t know much about it, but the idea is cool!
“..the Jointmaker is that it is a hand-powered table saw that uses a Japanese saw blade mounted so that a table slides very precisely above it. The saw blade can be tilted in both directions and can be adjusted for depth. This simple flexibility allows it to make incredible things, from snug-fitting tenons to crazily precise miters.

As far as I can tell, it does everything a regular table saw does except for long rip cuts, which is why it is called the Jointmaker. Producing almost no noise and using no electrical power, it is quite a minimalist saw, but that’s the point.”
