A number of people I try to keep up with on LumberJocks have either had a birthday recently or their LJ anniversary date has come to pass. This is the case with me. As a matter of fact, one of those folks sent me a PM about it today. Here’s a shout out to Dorje for the reminder. Thanks!
I’ve been quite busy with things lately both woodworking and regular work and so my blog I started on the Hand Tools Journey has woefully not seen any entries… I’ve also enrolled in a Continuing Studies Furniture coures at one of our local colleges. This has been a great experience so far mostly because I have a warm space to work. It’s also been envigorating since the class is led by a successful custom furniture studio owner. So we get a little theory and also a little practicality too. My project is quite complex and maybe more so than it should be for a 10 week course but I’m getting the support I need from the instructor so I’m blazing forward.
Hopefully I can carve some time to take a few progress photos soon. I do have a SketchUp file of the project and wil post that for feedback. Let me just say that SU has been a saving grace for me on this. There are many things I would have messed up so far had I not had this as a prototyping tool.
Lastly, thanks to those, especially Martin for the site, from whom I’ve received encouragement, feedback, and excellent knowlege over this last year.
