    Hey y’all, I found this place a few days ago and decided to join in, I’m a crosscut saw collector and love to work wood by hand. Looking to breakout into timber framing and build a few small projects to get started. Thanks to Brice for such a great avenue for information of this art to be shared. Looking forward to anything anyone can teach me. Currently building a dovetailed carpenter box for my timber framing tools(which I have few of) any suggestions on first and most important purchases?

    1 1/2″ chisel is one of the most important tools to have, then a 2″ chisel.

    A good mallet for these as well.

    Good luck and welcome.
