Today was some odds and ends and final assembly of the bridal chest. It’s not complete. I’ve got to get a little more maple to finish off with some moldings around the lid lip and the skirt. The stainless piano hinge is being mounted on the cover..Here you can see the hinge mounted to the chest along with an arm that locks the lid in a 90 degree open position.Also, I’ve made a box with divider out of maple that slides along the top inside of the chest..Here it is slid ove...
I did a project just because it looked like fun and it will help me learn for a coming project. This simple three legged stool out of some maple. “Three Legged Stool”: http://youtu.be/XN6VE7_SgMc Thanks so much for your support! Best RegardsChris
Some of you all asked for this, hope you are not sorry. You can look back to my projects to see my first which is a teardrop style. This will be a hourglass style made from walnut and maple.Started the day by drawing a plan then cutting and planing some walnut for the sides 1 7/8 by appx. 34 by .130 which will be .125 after sanding.

Another busy weekend has come and gone. The speed that time passes continues to amaze me. I must be busy.It is cool here this morning, with just a bit of rain. After the past few days which were rather warm and sticky, I am happy for the change. Although our weather here in Nova Scotia seems very mild in when I hear about how hot it has been in other places. I feel very fortunate.I made some progress on my "Nevermore" plaque yesterday. I didn't quite complete it, but it will be ...

Wha Dont know what to do with those left over, well turn them into new project, this one happen to be left over from Project Maple, I maybe able to acquire 2 pens out of this left over, or maybe just one unknown till I get the feel of whats inside the wood talkin to me
In this pile of wood that would make for nice Caduceus, there is also was one natural wood snake, on topTo the Left is Project Maple, which I took along to break in.
I went hunting for Caduceus in the woods near the Jordan Creek again today 07/25/14.I found 8 pieces of wood suitable for Caduceus. I also found a piece of vine that already looks like a snake, which will make for a nice app for one of my Wild Caduceus.
