Someone might wonder why I stopped posting a while ago. I just want to assure you all it was nothing personal. I was finishing a book project that I’ve put off for a long time and I had to put all my time and energy into it. But now the first batch of books is being printed via Lulu, so aside from putting away my research, I can get back to making saw dust. The book has nothing to do with woodworking, so I’m not even going to plug it.

In the coming month, I need to build two more bongo cajons. We’re gifting them to my daughter’s music teachers, General and Band. I also need to throw together an odd box for my brother. It’s more of a stand than a box though.

I still need to post the last present I made for Christmas, but that will wait a few more days.

So anyway, even though I didn’t ‘leave’, I’m now back.

Welcome back. I mean, after all, how many people write a book? Good luck on your book.

It’s a book about the stations of the Sussex Branch of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad.

glad your back. Hope your book finds it’s way into the libraries.
