The itch to build furniture has resurfaced so I decided to start milling what would eventually become a few side tables. I placed an over-sized log on the sawmill and began my normal routine of paring it down with a chainsaw.
As the saw screamed and the wood chips sprayed my face, I remembered my old adze. After finding it stashed away in a dark corner, I jumped up on top of the log and made short work of removing large chunks of wood with every swing. Turns out the adze is quieter, quicker, and doesn't fill your pockets up with wood chips like the chainsaw will.
Never forget about the old tools. Time to clean this adze up and keep it close at hand.
