I spent some time card scraping and sanding the 1/2” thick panels for the dresser sides. I sharpened a fresh burr on the card scraper so it was cutting quickly. I use it on trouble spots, like tearout from the planer. I setup the tablesaw with a dado set and a sacrificial fence to cut the rabbets on the panels. They are rabbeted on the inside edge, which will produce a flat panel look on the outside of the dresser. I could have used plywood, but it can be tough to find quartersawn ...
So around here there are numerous old stumps that look old and weathered, had one on the corner of my property so I cut it up for turning stock. It was very pitchy and sticky and def. not ideal wood for much. but after making a small dish from a nice swirly root clump I noticed the fine intricate grain and subtle orange translucence. So I made several small lampshade prototypes. Pitch bled out of the wood with warmer bulbs obviously. But I am about to start a kickstarter.com project involv...
In my last blog entry I mentioned that I was going to be busy the rest of the month of April and it’s been worse than I even imagined. I have been stealing away time to work on the bed that realistically should have been finished two weeks ago. So here is an update on the queen size A&C style bed I’ve been building.

There are some days when I just absolutely love my job. Yesterday was one of those days. It reminded me why I fight so hard on those not-so-good days to keep this job and keep doing what I am doing. Funny thing was, it wasn’t that much different from most days I have. I printed out some orders that have to go out in the mail today, answered some questions from customers, laid out and cut out my newest project, made a good dinner, and I even took my walk in the evening. We have ta...
