There are few creative pleasures to match paring a buttery wood like Alaskan yellow cedar with a really sharp chisel. Amazing, though, how easily one pares one's fingers given a careless moment of opportunity. I've signed most every woodworking project I've undertaken with my own blood on these occasions. Today was the day for my Auklet. The signature will be safely sandwiched between the two laminations of the keelson.
About an hour and a half, including the signing.
