Video: Why You Need a Crosscut Handsaw

Our latest YouTube video is up. Mike explains the difference between rip and crosscut in the clearest way I’ve heard it to date. Usually there’s a bundle of straws or a broom but showing a chisel on wood drives the point home.

This video is actually take 2. Earlier this morning I posted the first attempt on the Dispatch – Mike rediscovered an ancient ripping technique we now call “sriving.”

Too funny.
