In the second phase of this four-part series on creating dadoes with hand tools, George Vondriska teaches you how to actually make the cut with a handsaw. In this simple woodworking process, George uses a freshly sharpened bench chisel to scribe the guidelines like you would with a marking knife, which allows the saw an easier starting point than flat against the surface.
