Exercises in Artisanship #33: Exercises in Artisanship #32: The Woodrights Galoot library Part 4

The temperatures here are starting to show us some fall weather finally. Things in the air seem somewhat regulated which I prefer for working in my unheated shop. A steady 45-55 degrees makes me enjoy the heavier work more wether it’s sawing some big cherry pieces or hewing down stock for future wooden ware. I enjoy some of those certain days when the sun stays in more than not, it sort of provides me the feeling of wearing my favorite flannel shirt and heading off into that zone so many o...

At last I have been given the go ahead by the client to manufacture the oak table. This is the sketchup drawing I did about 9months ago It was indicitive and not a final design. This was accepted along with the quote, but put on hold until further notice. Well I was called about 3 weeks ago and told to go ahead with the build, so I repriced, just to make sure that the timber was still within the budget, and ordered the oak. I collected it on Wednesday and quickly realised that there wa...
