Hey, that looks great! I like seeing the joints instead of hiding them.
What tools did you end up buying to get started?
Joshua’s outline is great, but it’s going to take years to get the money to acquire everything. I started my tool collection adventure with a Lie Nielsen dovetail saw and their small low angle block plane. Next I’m looking to purchase a plow plane so I can make some grooves and join wood. So what tools did you start out with?
