The weather is looking good. it’s time to Open the doors to the Shop, let the staleness fade as I clean out the shop and get it ready for working order.

I’ve got a few projects Lined up on the Horizon.

I’ve got 2 Dressers I’ve got to clean up and restore and or repair.

I’ve got a Few Signs to work on with my Scroll Saw.

And hopefully have some other projects lined up as well. I’m going to be working on a Workbench for my Shop so i can accomish a little more then what I have in the past. I’ve got some Lumber that needs cleaned up, Planed down and all. hopefully the Maple I harvested year before last will be dry enough I can clean it up some.

I got some 35+ year old cherry to work with some on the Lathe I think, Some Walnut to do the same.

Going to try my Hand at a Segmented Turning. I’ve got a Glass Lamp Base that’s Broken, Going to try and Replicate that in some White Oak but Segmented. maybe the bottom and Top and maybe the middle with some Walnut or Cherry implemented in it as well, Not certain yet. Baby Steps here.

The Wood is slightly Plentiful so Hopefully I can have a few more projects lined up.

@Roger, I’m hoping so. Someone stopped me while I was rolling around last year, said I got some wood that was in my Grandpas Barn. Would you like to have it. I told him Yes i would. he brought over a Slab of Cherry that was probably just under 12” Thick about 6’ Tall and about a foot and 1/2 wide. About a 1/4 of it was Damaged from Dry rot and all from laying on the ground. I cut most of it off with a Chainsaw. Well a buddy helped me out. And we Slabbed it up some, cut some into 4×4’s and little pieces so I could turn some on the lathe, but before I cut it I counted about 35 Rings and I couldn’t get any higher cause it was cut off about the first 1/8th of the tree maybe 1/4 not sure, so I know it’s got some age on it and got to be more then 35. And it’s a Real BRIGHT Red. I’ll take some Photos of it and post it when i get around to getting things cleaned up in the shop to get some photos.
