    That marking gauge is absolutely indispensable for woodworking:

    But it looks like greensabbath has a kind totally new to me.

    Thanks guys

    @Bod: Thanks man. I didn't know about that lan until you asked so no (and we're in the middle of crunch time over here with finals and everything) But I am going to the winter Dreamhack :)

    @x06jsp: I know about the website, i'm just lazy sometimes :sigh: . the software is on Sangaku though which is still in China although I put it on a CD so I can load it on Yuugou. Keep bugging me (i mean that) and i might actually do it this weekend.

    @Hugo.B: Thanks for joining in. The difference between yours and mine is mine is actually a "cutting" gauge while yours is a "marking" gauge but they essentially do the same thing and work pretty much the same way.

    Thanks guys, more to come soon.

    Keep bugging me and i'll do it. Actually this is crunch time in school and my final quarter project is due Thursday so I won't be getting to the website until after that.

    As far as the update goes, I have a lot to show so far but I want to get a little farther still. I might do another tool tutorial before the actual update though so stay tuned for that.

    Hey everybody, thanks for the support. I forgot to get pictures of of the different ways to hold the saw so I'll have that next time but I have a decent update to show you.

    I'll just right in with some more tools.

    Sharpening Stones:
    [​IMG]
    These are extremely important because idealy, I'd be sharpening my chisels every half hour or so, especially given the characteristics of the wood which require sharp tools.

    The stones I have are a double sided diamond stone (not really a stone) but it works great for the rough grits and a very high grit polishing stone. Using these things is hard and i'm still at a low level. They are both water stones which mean you don't need oil to use them, just water.

    Bench Chisels:
    [​IMG]
    These are the work-horses in my tool arsenal. I beat the crap out of them, literally and i use them for most of the grunt work in my projects. The reason why I can use a hammer with them are the hoops that are on the end which reinforce the wood:
    [​IMG]

    Marking Knife:
    [​IMG]
    Here is my real marking knife, still not great but better than an exacto knife because one side of the blade is flat and the other is tapered where both side of the exacto are tapered.

    Mini-Clamps:
    [​IMG]
    These are great for marking things where your need to clamp them all together.

    Now, on with the frame of the case. Here I was laying things out to try to see where they'd fall:
    [​IMG]

    Mortise:

    To do the mortises, first start by laying out the lines. For this I used the marking gauge, pencil, and then marking knife.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And then i drilled out a lot of the material using my drill press.
    [​IMG]

    Now the fun begins. First i started with the long sides of the mortise and then i moved to the short:
    [​IMG]

    And soon it looks like this:
    [​IMG]

    The trick with making these perfect is going slow, taking off a little bit at a time, and really figuring out where the joint is sticking. Since the tenons are made by hand too, they are often not perfect and require more attention.

    One panel complete:
    [​IMG]

    And not too long later, two sides complete:
    [​IMG]

    And here are the next pieces to get attached.
    [​IMG]

    The joint at the top gets a little more complicated but i'll cover that in the next update. Stay tuned.

    Similar to what I'm doing at the moment: just you're slightly ahead of me.
