I have been away recently because I have been so busy on projects lately but I am going to post them right now. The projects are an end grain cutting board made for mahogany and oak, a small stool made entirely from hand tools and a new and improved chisel and screwdriver rack (at least compared to my old one) using my kreg jig i got for my birthday and a great way to store wood in a shed workshop without putting up shelves or losing floor space.

Welcome back Adam. I have two grandsons, one 14 and the other 15. They usually do some Christmas projects with me in my shop. So far mainly scroll sawing. They aren’t anywhere near as advanced as you are, but they do enjoy being in the shop.. If I remember correctly I’m pretty sure I saw some videos from you and I was very impressed with your ingenuity and creativeness, not to mention just good work in general. I will be looking forward to your upcoming posts

It sounds exciting, Adam. However, it does a body good to work in his shop so if can do only one at a time it’s best to keep the shop work a going. So put whatever time makes you happy into your shop and then come and see us.
