D'oh! I've been absent for quite awhile doing things like drywall, electrical, and stair molding that isn't particularly interesting to see. Though I will be blogging about the electrical install and specifically some creative wiring for the SawStop.
So how do I make up for the absence? Pron, naturally! Tool pron specifically... (I'm titillated just typing that!)
curly maple and African blackwood mallet that originally caught everybody's attention. Too pretty to use? Heck no... pretty has to be functional (well, tools anyway ;)). The head is infused with acrylic so you can beat your butt chisels all day with it. Hey, what's that to the right???
skew paring chisels in tulipwood, a long marking knife in birds' eye maple, and a small marking knife in canarywood.
I feel a little like Ricardo Montalbán when I say, "Exacto knife? Plastic mallet? But why?"
