Good round of tying today. A few prince nymphs, then 16 euro-style early black stone fly nymphs (thanks to @tightlineproductions), and 7 zebra midges

Completed a new shelf: top and bottom shelves with sliding dovetails, two middle shelves with stopped dadoes. Shiplap back panels. This was quite a challenge for me using only #handtools and happy with how it came out. #handtoolschool

Three new additions to the shop: #auriou rasps

Installed my new @benchcrafted plane stop today. Really like it, worth the effort. #handtoolschool

Finished the saw vise. It holds a saw tight, but haven’t tested it with sharpening. Need to set up a station away from my workbench for that. #handtoolschool

Making progress on a saw vise. The jaws are hard maple, adding inner bevels to fit backsaws. Hope to finish tomorrow. #handtoolschool

I completed my new saw til. Here it is. #handtoolschool

Bear’s Head Tooth

Found this clump of Bear’s Head Tooth mushroom today on the C&O canal near Brunswick, Maryland. Over two pounds! We ate about a third of it for dinner. What a find.
