It has been a busy past month (with woodshows and buying tools …) Rick and I have not had a lot of time for actually doing any woodworking.

But today is the day. Today we actually are going to do some working with wood.

Our electrician is coming out next week to look into hooking up our bandsaw and so Rick and I have to rearrange the basement, moving,stacking, storing the piles of wood that have accumulated down there.

I think of the piles that we have let pile up in just this short time and I groan. Today is definitely a work day and we will be working with the wood.

Perhaps, if I listen carefully at the right time I will hear the wood say “we are fine now.. go have a rest”.

Some of my best days in the shop are days of just puttering.

well, we built a little shelf; stored some mismatch pieces on the floor underneath and put the barnboards on top of the shelf.
We then stood back and said “oh yah.. this is good!!!!”
Since it didn’t take long to make the shelf and stack the wood I decided that we had time to throw a shelf up on the wall by my work area.
and the perfect piece of wood (an old sideboard from a waterbed) was stored on the new shelf—well underneath the shelf… underneath other boards…. way at the bottom… way at the back….
a few curses later… we put up the new shelf

Hi Debbie;
—-Ha! You just have to love it!!!
....it’s all-ways on the bottom and at the back, it’s the last nail that goes crooked, the last row when your nail gun runs out, last tree of the day to delimb when the chain saw runs out of gas and the gas is where???, last cut that comes up too short and now with winter here in NH and snow blowing snow, how about that it’s all-ways the last pass to blow when your sheer-pin breaks….as I said, “you just got to love what you do!!!”

GODSPEED,
Frank

Just a word of caution, be extra careful when using your bandsaw, & follow all the safety precautions in your manual. It’s a much more dangerous machine than the scroll saw.
I know you’re going to enjoy the many uses of your new tool.

Isn’t every day a good woodworking day? I am glad to hear that you were able to get back into your shop and start working.

Dick, I’m sure that I’ll take the same safety precautions as I do with the table saw—- here Rick, cut this. :)
