Thanks for the replies. I wasn’t trying to imply that nails and fasteners weren’t traditional…I should have maybe been more articulate. One of the things I’ve been drawn to lately is Japanese woodworking and architecture. They used a lot of joinery in their techniques. I’m not above nails, haha. I also like the idea of crafting wood and metal into one project. I’ve been on the lookout for an anvil ever since I priced a few holdfasts for my bench and realized for the price of the holdfasts, I could buy myself an anvil for not much more. What type of work do you guys do mostly?
