Taking shape

Attempted to cut everything with hand tools.  I learned the value of a rip saw, or in my case, the lack of one.  I tried using a Japanese crosscut saw to do the rip (with the grain) cuts.  I think I would still be at it two weeks later.

Tried a cheap saw I bought at Home Depot years ago.  I think a spoon would be more capable.

So, I did some work with hand tools...and the rest with a jigsaw.  

My cutting skills still need lots of improvement.
