Today I made a couple more “Life Guide” tools to use with my clients and as I look back at my day I realized that I was quite efficient and if anyone had been watching they might have thought that I knew what I was doing!
With an idea of what I wanted, I “selected” the wood that I wanted, I cut it to size on the mitre saw, I started up the ol’ (well, “new”) spindle sander and smoothed down the edges and sides, I used the scroll saw to cut out designs, I flipped on the little Dremel Router and put a curved edge on the pieces, I hand-sanded, and I wood-burned the appropriate words into the wood (and I even spelled them correctly, unlike on the leather in my wooden Journal – thanks, Jenn, for pointing that out!).
It was just a couple weeks ago that I was getting my mini-lessons on how to set up the tools for my use and now I was flying around the shop like a pro. I have to admit that it felt pretty good and the projects didn’t turn out too badly either!!
