-9in the workshop so speed was the key today…. Tweaked my belt sander and started to cut the shapes in to the knife handle this is for a right hander. I was quite pleased with the shaping so i thought I would try a quick hand sander rub down to take some edges out. This went well. So out came the 120 grit and a frantic rub around. I was starting to be really happy.. 600 grit.. over enthusiasium.. dropped back to 400 grit now this really did work some wonders.. ...
Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.
This video is last half of the plate,the finish.
QUESTION: HOW VERSATILE IS A LARGE BLANKET CHEST OR BOX? 15 Century Chest above My opinion…EXTREMELY! Antique Pennsylvania Chest above Here are my thoughts on the simple, large, well built CHEST, dovetailed nicely or fastened with glue and screws.

The Family Blanket ...

Stone and Wood ....study deep and go within, for in these inwards of stone and wood, beats the heart of my love’s in-flame, where naught but wight’s such as i can go for peace-full respite…. —-sing forth the study of my soul, i go a caroling within the depths of these here woods, while none there is that crosses my path as fair weathered fiend, but the arrow that flees to it’s point of yonder destiny…. —-why sitting here just now in mornings ...
My wife and I often visit our families in the mountains of western North Carolina. We are planning on visiting next weekend and I spoke with my father today and he suggested that we go for a hike while up to look for Morel mushrooms and ramps (a type of wild leak). In the area of the Appalachian Mountains I grew up ramps are a tradition this time of year. As a young boy I remember hiking in the mountains in search of ramps to dig for family get-togethers. Ramps have such a strong flavor ...
So Ill start out by saying that I forgot to mention in my last post about the “payment” my father gave me for helping him remove the cabinets in his kitchen. A barely if ever used Delta Shopmaster bandsaw! Its not the 14” I used to have, but its a start!!! Not that I asked for or expected any form of payment. I think it was more of my dad getting things out of his way that he realizes he has no want for. He also offered me his Hitachi comp/mitre saw that fell off the saw hor...
