Woodworking course - 2

Second evening of my woodworking course.  We spend the whole session sawing cut after cut,  sharpening our chisels and cutting out wood. Slow as we are our first exercise piece is still unfinished.  Grinding is a classic hollow bevel on a (hot) powered stone, finished freehand on an oil-stone.

When I asked about which chisel size to use, I was said that using the widest possible was correct.
