Woodworking course - 3

woodworking exercise 1
Done, we finished our first exercise, leaving some room for improvement.  What I missed was a 6 mm chisel (1/4")  I found one in the classroom grinded on both sides and I kept it that way as I don't see how to grind it down without investing much time or see the chisel burn.

Then some theory:  markings.

marking stiles
marking rails
marking a frame


To end we started a second exercise: make a lap joint (L or T) with a 60x25mm piece of wood.  We went through the whole cycle again: Arm saw - Table saw - Jointer - Planer and the tenon saw and chisels.
