83: Cutting a board

Here I am, cutting a decking board for Abel's and Angus's sleeping loft, with Mark Budden's sharp Stanley ripping saw...it's not a 19th Century tool, but it operates on the same principles.  Sharp, quality steel I appreciate.

The loft will be a close quarters experience, perhaps and hopefully less so for small-to-medium size boys.  For now, you can glimpse the end of Ralph Morgan's rough-sawn locally-milled lumber under the gabled eave.  Later, I'm going to attach a row of log rounds across the board, laterally -- it'll look cool, like a cordwood-style row of log under the glass above.
