Well, the weekend was slow. My dear wife went to yard sales with a friend on Saturday morning and they did not get back until after lunch. Of course, I got to spend time with my boys while they were out. By the time they got back I felt like the day was over enough that I did not get much done. I did get the drawer for the sharpening cabinet built and hung. That is some progress, just not the progress I wanted to see. Oh well, it will eventually get done.
Sunday was not much better. I got my sheet of particle board for the cabinet top rough cut and ready to final size. I also got the formica for the top rough cut. So, with a little more time in the shop I will have the top built and covered with formica.
Ok, now for the fortunate part. My wife is an avid freecycler. Friday night there was a post made giving away plans for a cedar strip kayak, with forms, and plans for a cedar strip canoe. The kayak is an Endeavour 17' from Bear Mountain Boat Shop and the canoe is a Mini Grand Laker from The Newfound Woodworks. Clicking the links will provide pictures. Anyway, I replied to the offer and was the lucky recipient of the plans and forms (thanks again Tim if you are watching).
So, now I am ready to get the shop done and get to building a canoe. I know I need to be patient, but I am terribly excited right now.
Hope everyone here had a good weekend.
