Well, as I said in last night’s blog, today I started 3 projects that I need to finish in time to send off before Christmas. So I guess my insomnia paid off though because I was able to draw up my plans, measure and mark all my wood last night which made cutting today go allot quicker.
So, today between baking pies and pumpkin bread, I managed to cut all my pieces to length, rip them to width, and miter the ends. Not bad for a days work.
Heres some pics/teasers…
1st pic: Here is all my project woods cut to length and riped to width. From left to right I have red oak (friends knife case), padauk (Mother’s trinket box), and walnut (step-father’s trinket box).
2nd pic: This is dry assembled after I cut my miters.
So, not too bad a start. I’m feeling allot better about getting them done in time now. Heck, who knows, maybe tonight I’ll be able to sleep again!
