« Part 107: Update for October 2017 Part 108 of Shop stuff series Part 109: November update - Ramblin' »

A rainy day today and finally some time to edit video. This is a small pencil box I made for my daughter in law who is going back to school to learn how to help people. My first grand child was born to her 6 months ago and I wanted to make her something that was a bit more common in my time, yet still practical now.

I like how you made the finger pull, I dont know if it is the time honored way to make them but, it worked very well

I don’t know where I got the idea, but it isn’t original to me, I just thought up the angled slot in the 2×4 to hold it. Necessity is the mother of invention.

Thats a nice pencil case you have made Jim.
A question what equipment do you use to record edit and produce the videos?

I only have a smart phone to take stills with and the quality is very unpredictable.

For example here is a shot of my Hoya flowering everything but the bloom is in focus.

A lot of my ww post suffer the same effect.
After seeing my son’s Go Pro I thought about trying to do better, and your videos are of a professional standard, even if unedited!!.
