The work on the workshop came to an abrupt halt as a more pressing problem with the house reared it’s ugly head, however that has now been sorted, and work is now back on schedule… more or less! It doesn’t help that only large National Companies in Colombia have any machinery to help out, locally everything is done by hand, including bulk concrete mixing. I am told there are two reasons for this, one that it keeps more people in employment, and the second, anyone wit...
Yesterday turned out to be what I would call an ‘organizational day’. Besides the normal chores around the house, I cleaned up my computer files and did some planning on the next projects. Our next batch of lumber had arrived at Bernie’s, so Keith took the trip to Digby and spent the morning cutting it into 10×10 pieces so we could continue to work on the second half of our kit order this weekend. I am working on my next magazine articles and projects this weekend,...

The Y rack and pinion showed up earlier too Unfortunately, this is the end of the shopping spree for now.I’ll have to see how far I can go with what I have. ————————————————————Weekend update: Y axis motor...

Working in the shop. Realized I’ve been pretty quiet. LOL! Posted a blog on my buddy Murphy who joins me just when things look like they are going well. He probably takes instant trips everywhere? Like your shop? LOL! Had to take the sign down my wife and I made after receiving a letter from my recent employer about my signing a non compete agreement. Took it to an attorney, who gave me the pragmatic facts. Court filings take ninety days. The agreement is all in their favor. Bot...
Just when I thought that my hundreds of little summertime bunnies would bring with them the warmer weather, I awoke this morning to another four inch or so blanket of snow. Perhaps they are ‘snow bunnies’! It is pretty, though. And the sun is shining brightly and it looks quite clean and beautiful again, so I don’t think I really mind. After all, if I DID mind it, would it even matter? Living in Nova Scotia during the latter part of February usually means that it wi...
I have start the process of rebuilding my shop. I cut down some trees and tore my old 10×12 shed down.
Yesterday we had a wonderfully productive day. It had been a while since we had to do a large wholesale order, and I must admit that it was actually a lot of fun to do some ‘production type’ scroll sawing again. My SLDP212 Summertime Strokework Bunnies pattern was accepted by Artist’s Club for their next catalog and we had to get the kits cut for stocking the warehouse so they would be there waiting by the time the catalog is released. We started out with an order for 1...
I finally got the SCMS dust hood finished and installed. Just need to finish up the ducting which will probably happen this weekend… The design is pretty simple, just an open frame held together with pocket screws and glue, a simple top screwed to the frame, and a thin melamine coated hard board curved panel attached with screws and fender washers to the frame. As you may recall I messed up my measurements, and had to extend it. I didn’t want to fully scrap it, so I simply t...
