Saws in the summer

Furnituremaking is an indoor sport. One of the sadnesses of this is that whole seasons can pass us by without notice. We put our noses out of the workshop door and it’s spring, next time we notice the outside it’s summer. So it’s nice occasionally to get outside and do something . This shows Daren Millman with a group of students talking about saws and how to go about sharpening saws.
