I would like to thank everyone for reading along as I spoil myself with this amazing remodel. It is such a huge difference for me, I am not sure it will really sink in until I have made three or four projects there. It has been a pleasure to have you all follow along and cheer me on. You have been an amazing bunch of people to chat with and get to know. So thanks a million.This will be my last blog for some time as I need to concentrate on orders and getting my world put back together. I have...
1/29/16 No pics today regarding progress. Took a quick break from work to install (4) more husky wall tracks, then sort screws and nails on one of the workbenches. Not a big accomplishment but I’ve got one bench cleared and fasteners that were thrown on the bench put away. Shop may yet get in some sense of organization. 1/30/16 More of the same today, just sorting and putting hardware away. Got lots of hardware to sort through. Looking at the Granberg Chain Saw mill this afterno...
Hope everyone had a nice week. I have not been in the shop too much this week. Next week will be the last of the remodel for now. I will start on the plane till probably later this summer. It is official… We have orders to fill. We landed the snake head cane job. So we will be making 31 of these at $175 a pop… Nice! We also have mountain cane tops to make, about 40 of those.Thankfully those will be run through the cnc to save some carving time and have them all end up th...

So today marks the two month date since I started this remodel. I scheduled for three months, but orders are starting to pile up and the plane till might have to get left off until I can get to it as well as the inside of the tool cabinet. So far so good, but there is still much to do. I got the base put together today and thee top leveled and mortised in place. I put a coat of finish on the base before I stuck it together. ...
Uh-Oh. I know I said yesterday I got the last piece of the puzzle, then I get a package today. It was something I ordered two months ago, but Lie-Nielsen had trouble with a batch of bronze so they scrapped a line and had to remake them. It is always fun to get their packages, I get to catch up on the haps of Portland, ME. I got my new scratch beader and it looks nice in its’ new home. I will make a holder for it one of these days. Always one tool away fro...
Took a foraging trip to Home Depot last night. Picked up last of 5”x6” adapters, 6” Elbow, and Gamma Lid with 3 Gal. Bucket. —only thing left is Nano filter which should arrive this week. Scored a Rigid Tool Box Bucket also during my trip. Love this modular system. It allows to be store tools into quick access kits that I can grab, stack and go to job sites easily. Currently I’m storing them in a cabinet, but expect to put them on trackwall shelves s...
So today juror #31 was not called upon so I got to work on the bench top.I managed to get the back forty glued up and most of the front slab cut out. In my last posting I had hinted to the fact that I was unsure as to the amount of wood I had, well I came up with the best solution I could. Even though I had been saving up wood for this build over the last year, it looked like I would be short on the maple, but it will work out nice as the off-cuts will be turned into a carving bench th...
Today was the beginning and then end. The Alpha and well, the beta would work I guess. Not really the end, just a good step on the brakes. I cleaned up the shop this morning and pulled out the 94 BF of eastern hard maple I have been saving up for the bench. It is going to free up a lot of room by my mill, but I am sure I will take care of that, can’t have any uncluttered corners in a wood shop now can we. I measured and re-measured and came to a conclusion, I just don’t hav...
Hey all, hope you guys had a nice break. I finally finished the saw till and I am making some good progress on the tool cabinet. I was hoping to be starting on the workbench by now, but I should be able to get at it tomorrow. Better late than never.The carving of the till took a lot longer than I thought it would. I wanted the art nouveau whips to be really pronounced and it took a lot of work, but I am happy with the results. I finally got around to scanning in the...
