So I’m FINALLY finished with this project and it feels like it took forever. There’s been a lot going on and I haven’t had nearly as much time as I would have liked in the shop. I’m not sure if that’s just life or the holiday season, but it doesn’t look like the activity is going to let up in the next few months… In the last entry, I showed offed the jigs I had built to help with the taper cuts and creating the 14” radius cut in the back sl...
Awhile back i cut down some oak trees for a friend. I took the firewood for myself and we loaded up the trunks on a 2 ton truck and hauled them to a mill for his personal use. When I recently started my own little woodshop he gave me some of that lumber to get started with. Since we are all natural born tightwads around here he gave me the worst bottom of the barrel lumber out of the whole bunch. But I’m not complaining about free material.

After taking the Summer off (and enjoying it immensely!) it was time to get back to Work! And after searching around in the available jobs, I was lucky enough to find Work in the finest Hospital in N.H., the Catholic Medical Center of Manchester…It seems that their Cafeteria was only open for the first and second shifts, and their third shift employees had been requesting “Hot Food” for some time… A decision was made, and the Cafe is now open for them with yours truly ...
Sanded this one to 150 grit and figured a good wet coat of lacquer might bring out the grain a bit. The rosewood and turquoise together for the photo. Will glue last. The turquoise is from eBay China. Fun stuff.
Not a big entry on this running blog of my house remodel. The floor is on. Solid red oak..
