As you all know, i am new to this wood working thing. so some of you may find this kind of boring and others may find this this a trip down memory lane.
I only have time to work in my shop on my day off and some mornnings, you see i am a Chef and have verry little time to myself. The shop is my little get away from all the things that stres me out, includding the family life. so i plan on using this as a jornal with throughts and acomplishments that only a fellow wood worker might aprecieate.
Here we go!
My son anounced last month that he has joined the Marines. My wife and i don’t quiet understand why but what is done is done. So i have decided to make a Stationary box since the only contact he will have to the outside will be by only hand written letter. I am going to make it with popalar and red oak and think it will come out nice. I would like to make all the joint work out of box joints, some thing i have not done yet and only recently acomplished my first dado joints on a bench that i made for my wife. so this is a new challenge for me.
So this mornig i made my first box loint jig for my router table. after much trial and and disapointments i finaly got it together and went for my first tryal run. IT WORKS!!
Monday i begin the project in full earnest so i will keep you posted.
