This past Saturday night I had the enlightening experience of using a Hammond Glider saw to trim my blocks. Dan from The Arm letterpress studio suggested Bryan Baker could possibly help me out since he so conveniently has a saw made specifically for trimming wood type. Lucky for me, Bryan agreed and taught me how to use the beautiful machine in the basement of his studio. It was a complete success and to be honest, it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. (I’ll post photos and a detailed write up as soon as I re-shoot, since I lost the photos from Saturday night.)
Reason #25 why this project has been awesome: Building new relationships with wonderful people.
