Gidday from the land down under [where men thunder].
I have been reading lately about the 30 in 30 and have decided to up the ante.
As most of you know I love making boards so I plan to make at least 150 by the end of September or early October. The main reason for this challenge to myself is that I have been invited to the Melbourne Working With Wood Show in October and I don’t want to turn up with just a handfull of boards.
Most of you know that I also have a regular job so this is being done in my spare time LOL
I admit that I have recently semi-retired and am only working 7 days per fortnight so I do have more time now to play in the shop.
’Stepped and tapered’ is being counted as #1.
Yesterday was day one and I got off to a great start. I made a heap of sawdust [my wife loves it for her gardens]
All in all got 14 boards cut. Five of them have been glued up and the others will be in clamps by the end of the day. BTW none of these boards is a simple stripe design although I may have to resort to doing the simple ones if it looks like I am running out of time. I will only post here… each day as I get each one finished. This will leave the front page for others to showcase their work.
At the end of the time when I have all 150 or so boards done I will post pics of the whole shebang, [in projects], all laid out.
Stay tuned for pics of the next 5 ie 2 thru 6
PS me and my big mouth,., what have I gotten myself into, ??
