Slow going, as I cut the native cypress with Dad’s Japanese Ryoba saw.
The kerf is minute: approximately 1 mm – so there is little waste. A truly amazing saw-blade.
These rough-sawn ribs are 3 mm thick – I will plane each of them down to 1.4 or 1.5 mm, using the Luben Low-Angle Block Plane.
(see my commentary: A Tale of Three Planes – March 2018).
