Purchased the Turnlock Sign Routing set and a 20 lb box of assorted hardwood scraps. My wife thinks I’m crazy for ordering scrap wood but I got some real nice pieces of walnut and ash that will i will be using for the chessboard I am wanting to start.

I don’t have a bandsaw yet so I am going to be cutting down the boards when I visit my Grandparents over the holiday. I think my Grandpa is as excited as I am ;)

If we let women thinking we’re crazy stop us, we’d never get anything done. Did you see my kite camera blog?

Sounds like you’re off to a great start,
nice you have your grandpa cheering you on.
Looking forward to seeing some finished boards.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving,

Yay for crazy obsessions! They make life interesting.

BTW, the latest WoodSmith arrived today and there’s an article on making inlay banding out of scraps. I’d call that great timing!
