So, now I have posted most of the things that I have built, and will start blogging about projects and that kind of thing. Currently I am finishing up the school year at the High School that I teach at in Santa Rosa CA. This is my first year as a Student Government teacher and I am just now realizing that the end of the school year is the busiest part of the year for that position with all sorts of things going on, mainly a trip to Disneyland for 255 of the graduating seniors in two weeks, not to mention prom. UGH. I am also an avid computer gamer and as such I divide my time in the shop between my wife, Andrea, my dog Sasha, work, and gaming. I am not as prolific a wood worker as some of you are, nor nearly as skilled, but you all seem very supportive of the different skill levels exhibited on this site. I am happy to have found the site and am looking forward to making much sawdust in order to show the rest of you what I can make.
I am currently working on a frame for my wife. Hopefully we will take some pictures in Europe this summer so that we can find one to blow up and put in this frame when I finish it.
I am also in the conceptual stages for a briefcase-like case for the poker chips that our group of friends use during our monthly attempt to pass money around. :) I know that the chips are 1-9/16” in diameter and that I would like to either make the case with my dovetail jig, or the finger jig that I built over spring break. I want it to be very simple otherwise. If anyone has any ideas for me on this, or knows of pictures of something like this, I would be grateful if you could forward those to me.
I am also going to build myself a new podium for the class room this summer, and am starting to look for plans or concepts about that as well.
