Don’t feel bad Andrew. I have not yet even been able to attempt to saw anything. I am not even sure which saw I should use for what. Before I began trying to learn about hand woodworking, I thought a saw was a saw was a saw (ha, how’s that for a unintentional palindrome?) Maybe you can help me on this one: finer tooth saws are for ripcutting while crosscutting required less teeth per inch?
