Ok, so I have been out of the shop for over a week now. Of all things, I caught a cold this time of the year. The aches, pains, coughing, etc have made it impossible and dangerous to work in the shop. So, I have sat around all day watching dvd’s and playing video games. I was not even well enough to read the Lumberjocks web site. I know I have missed much, but will be catching up in the next few weeks. While still under the weather, I will try a few hours in the shop today.
Just before I got sick, I decided on a Thorsen Table design, and began cutting the wood. I was working on the table top, when the headaches and sinus pain became too much. Well, it is time to start tackling the table again. I was glad to have settled on a design, and happy that the initial cutting went so well. The tricky parts will begin soon enough.
Unlike Obi, I did not buy a hunnerd dollar board. I have some thick oak stock for the legs on hand. I did have to buy one oak board for the top, aprons, stretchers, etc. But, I think this will work out nicely. While I hope to sell it, and make money for more projects, I can also use it myself.
So, here is to success in the shop.
