Handsaw Re-work

2 of 3  

This one I started by sawing down in front of the top and bottom horns then chiseling down to the saw kerf to give a bit more shape to the horns.

This also helps remove a bit of the bulky look of this particular tote.

With the outside profile changes done I started the reshaping of the handle area. I use chisels and gouges to hog off most of the wood to be removed, this faster and easier than rasping the whole thing.

At this point I move on to rasps and files working down to the layout lines. Stop now and then as you go along and grip the tote to check the feel and see what areas need more work. I rounded the outer edges of the profile a bit as well.

Learn how. Discover why. Build better.
