Well today I got out to the shop for about an hour this morning. Not much time, but it’s what I needed to get done what needed to get done. I’ve got three things that I cut up, and also got glued. First up is of course a new wine bottle holder design. It is a mix of purpleheart and oak. I wish I had some different woods to mix, but I’m using what I got. I’ve also cut and glue up a votive candle holder. It’s also made from purpleheart and oak. I know what I want it to look like, but don’t have any sketches yet. We will see how well those two things turn out. I have also glued up two pieces of poplar that I will be making a routed bowl in the shape of a snowman. Should be cute and do well for the Christmas season. I will be making a video of the progress for the snowman bowl, maybe put it out mid November. I looked at everything and started thinking “hmm, what could I do while all this stuff (3 things) is drying? I thought maybe I could clean up a bit, or maybe even cut out some more of my regular wine bottle holders. So my question is, what do you do while waiting for things to dry in the shop? Leave comments here or on my webpage.

Tim: I usually will take some of my scrap pieces and make some small woodcrafts, like a bud vase, small desk clock, picture frame, a toast tong. Just use your imagination. Check out the Britboxmaker project where he took scrap pieces and made a piece of art into a box. I have also put together different types of wood and framed it.
