Preparing for my sis to show up with her camera, i cleaned and organized my shop. took a couple of hours but i had things neat and relatively tidy. So i sat down in my thinking chair to enjoy a cup of coffee and a smoke.It was driving me nuts. Well i need a roller stand so i began to put together a kind of prototype.So now i have wood and tools on my bench and sawdust on the floor.I be happy
The sun was out today and it was the first time this year that I noticed the days seem to be hanging out a bit longer. They are sneaky that way, sort of creeping up on spring. After all the snow this winter, I will welcome spring with a giddiness that I haven’t experienced in years.

We are also re-sawing some 1’’ old growth southern yellow pine to 3/8’’ for the door and drawer fronts, I actually gummed up a blade and had to remove it for cleaning. I did some reading and also remembered we ...
I tried keeping it as simple as possible, and worked the best I could to make the grain complimentary, and this is what I have been able to come up with. What you see here will NOT be what is all visible above ground. Remember I have dot have something sunk into the concrete footer right? The design is pretty simple. Cross built from double layer cedar 2×4s, 12” wide x 24” tall (above ground). The edges are all relieved with my 1/2” 22.5 degree chamfer bit. I thought...
