They say when it rains, it pours. Well, if that’s the case, then I guess I’m all wet.

I’ve been busy finishing up the last few Smith’s carcase saw orders…

Teaching saw sharpening at Plimoth Plantation…

And working on some special projects plus my usual spoon carving habits when I can steal a few minutes here are there. But I am taking some time out this weekend to attend the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event at Greenwich Wood Products in Cranston, RI. You can check out the details here:

I’ll be there on Saturday with some DVDs and t-shirts for those interested in supporting my wife and kids…none of whom generate income, but all consume it quite readily. ;) I’ll probably bring some saws along too.

Between stuffing my face with Mike’s oven fired pizza and hand crafted beer, I’ll catch up with the guys and gals from L-N, and if I get drunk enough (the last beerI had from Mike had 13% alcohol content!!!!) I might even try to sneak some of their smaller tools into my pockets and make off inconspicuously.

It should be fun. Hope to see you there.

:) Matt

    The more I see this carcase saw, the more I like it. Yours is a beautiful rendition of the form. What is the handle made of?

      Thanks Isaac. The tote is Honduran Rosewood. I didn’t expect it to seduce me…but i stare at it too! The saw went to Australia, so I’ll likely never see it again. I do have plenty more from that board though….
