I just joined LumberJocks today. (How is it that I just now discovered it?) What a great resource! So as a bit of an introduction, I’ve been posting videos on my YouTube channel for about a year and a half now. Please feel free to subscribe. I am an amateur woodworker in Northern California and spend time on weekends out in my shop.
As my first test on this site, I uploded a video to the Projects section. I then realized that videos can only be tagged in a blog entry. So I’m not sure what the protocol is here: is it better to post in the blog section or the projects section? Or should I cross-post in both? I think the most logical thing is to direct my future posts strictly to the blogs. Plus, that way it will give me a nice way to overshare about the project in question.
I gotta say, I am really impressed by the welcome I received on my project section post. So many nice comments came flooding in instantly! Thanks. You guys are plugged in!
So anyway, barely in time for Christmas, I thought I would post this video of an ornament I made last month. It is made with 250-year-old cherry wood from a dresser I restored a few years ago. The dresser has been in my family since it was built. During the restoration I had to replace a few pieces, so I saved them for a rainy day. This ornament is a gift to my dad, who taught me so much about woodworking. This video is about the joy of working wood. Enjoy!
