Today, taking advantage of the 50° temperatures outside after another cold snap (yes, it snowed two days ago) I used my hand planes to knock down the slight lip on the maple support of the shortened desktop and the pine trim piece I glued up last time. It only took a few minutes – it took me longer to remember how to stand and hold the thing than it did to start the shavings flying. It’s been entirely too long since I was in the shop. Nevertheless, I quickly had a nice leve...
Now that my pine bow is done I am working on my rod holder. I have plainer almost all the pieces and cut almost all to size. My biggest issue is forgetting were I left off yesterday
I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...
Back in the heart of winter, oh, about a month ago, before my surgeries, before Percoset, before spring….my wife and I decided to switch our dining room with our office. We had wood floors put in and the change has not only made the house look better but made us (her) VERY happy. The flooring was installed while I recovered from surgery #1 (planned). The everything had to wait while I recovered from surgery #2 (unplanned!). Despite all that drama during March, things progressed ...

After the drawer was finished, I put together the cleats for the drawer to run on and also the cleats to attach the top. I keep forgetting to cut a dado on my apron pieces so I can try to attach the top with little wood clips instead. I’ll have to try that next time I make a table. The top for my nightstand is made up a few pieces of pine edge glued together, just like my poplar nightstand. I actually saved the top pieces from my chest of drawers—I had messed up those drawer front...
