No Bull! —My neighbor was pretty impressed when I told him I’d entered a bowl in the County Fair—until he realized it wasn’t spelled “B-U-L-L”. Still, I did all right. I think the prize money is $5. I’ve always told my wife that someday my woodworking would pay off! (Original details of this project were posted on 7/22/15.)

View on YouTube This week I’ve been very productive. I finished installing the sterling silver in the ebony bars. After that I prepared the surfaces of my parts and rounded over the edges of the rails and mortises. Finally, I cut the housed mortises for the rails and stretchers. I also show you my new Lie-Nielsen Number 2 Bench Plane and talk about why I bought it and show you how it preforms.

PVC Pipe Stool with some woodworking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM82xM8cwf4 Even though my Youtube channel is known as ‘Wacky Wood Works’ the first line on my about page reads, “Making simple projects with wood, plastic, metal, fabric, cardboard & anything else.
