Hey Guys! Well, a short day in the shop today. Lawn’s not gonna mow itself…...........! I laid out the parts on the board, in chalk, so as to get a 3-corner grain match. The grain match will die into a rear corner: Next, I cut the 45 degree miters on all the box side pieces. I use a Wixey digital angle gauge, and it makes setting precise angles ridiculously easy. Every miter joint I’ve ever made with it is airtight—man I love this thing! Tomorrow I&...
Here are boxes that I made for storing two sets of diamond sharpening stones.
The bird and all the trimmings are gone finally. Ready to get back to normalcy. Have been staying away from family and friends while i fight my yearly cold. sleep and drugs have catapulted me over the hump, I feel almost human this morning.

This is the picture used to develop the basic form of a jewelry box for the our eldest daughter in an effort ...

I finally have all of the mortises cut in the legs and the bed rail fasteners installed. Next step, cut the tappers in the rear legs: Now cut the tappers on the front legs: Oops, I misread the combination square AGAIN! The mortises for the bed rail fasteners are supposed to be 7-1/4” up from the bottom. I just have to remember to read the correct side of the square. So the mortises ended up being way to low. I could make new legs but that would require a trip to the...
