If you are going to learn some new woodworking skills, you may need to build a few accessories along the way. For instance, a miter sled for your table saw can help you make more accurate and safe cuts. A bench hook can make your hand planing a whole lot easier.
And, if you want to learn how to hand saw properly, a saw bench is not a bad thing to have on hand. This model, built by Lost Art Press woodworking guru Chris Schwarz, will allow you to improve your hand sawing skills by holding your workpiece at the optimal height for sawing. In addition, it will give you an opportunity to practice your woodworking skills as you build it. Not a bad deal!
