What’s happening in the shop for May 21, 2010. Final Assembly on Nash’s Ross murphy bed. It is stained. Started on Morris’ Accent wall unit. Built the pedestal and bookcases. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:
Today is the last day of the traditional work week and I am especially geeked in regards to the following week. Every year, I usually take a week off to perform some major work around the house. Last year consisted of building flower boxes and my roofing project. This year, I decided to give home refurbishing a rest and am focusing on wood and workshop projects. I spent the last two weeks getting all my ducks in a row. Mike (jockmike2) and I visited a mill two weeks ago to pick up some woo...
Up at 5 in the AM… a quick cup of coffee and a shower…dressed in the newly embroidered and freshly ironed..thanks Honey… work gear… load the rest of the boards and gear into the back of the Ute..

Two of my three new chisels showed up yesterday and after about an hour on the water stones I had the 6mm chisel honed. I flattened the back and sharpened the face.
