On the woodworking side, I’m making myself a little collection of japanese woodworking tools, for now I’ve got a chamfer plane, a mini-plane and a marking gauge, mostly done with hand tools. there is a reason why I used hand tools to make these : refining my skills for a much bigger project, which is, a workbench. I’m planning to make myself a workbench latter this summer, mostly occidental in form, but completely assembled with japanese joinery.
