Well, it’s Christmas Eve and Mother Nature provided us with some good weather. As such, that meant a day in the FlwoodRats Al Fresco Work Shop (AKA Driveway) working on some more stock for my rendition of T-Chisels Blanket Chest. This one will be a toybox/blanket chest for my Grand Daughter Yvette.

Having my table saw on a mobile base really helps.

Here are my Jointer and Planer

Here is my stock for the raised panels. Today was spent rough milling them to 1-3/8” thick.

This is what the shop looked like after a few hours of work.

Christmas day will be spent doing the final milling to 1-1/8”.

Merry Christmas ALL and Please Remember the Reason for the Season!

try uploading the to photobucket and then you can either use the direct link with ’ at the beginning and end or you can use the IMG code. i think the HTML code works too.

Merry Christmas Jim. Yes the ventilation is quite good, but controlling the humidity is a real challenge, especially when it rains. Clean up is a snap… One large push broom and a yard blower to ‘git’r done’
