Handwork in Progress:
—-’at making a …..’
....and so this one here is a work in ‘the process’ which should be done today or tomorrow, depending on what and where my kayak decides to go today!
Not getting much time in the shop at the moment, as the powers that be….those gods of the water are taking my time and once in the grip of their clutches, kayak and I are one. Summers in NH can be short and so I use and plan, along with being spontaneous for all the free time I can accumulate to explore the waterways and lakes of the area. Today, partly sunny and warm and so I will head out….and then there’s the weekend when all woodworking stops and again I’m gone. I cannot really say that all woodworking stops since wherever I go, I am looking for that piece of ‘wood art’ that is lying on some shore line or some uninhabited island in the middle of some lake. Ha!....and then there’s always that log that is in tow behind the kayak as we head back to camp.
So yesterday evening I managed to get some shop time as I was busy building a new hand tool for the ”Summer Woodworking Awards” here at LJ. I’m not going to say the name of thie tool at the moment snice it’s not completed yet and also I thought that some might like to take a guess at what is being put together here, or maybe someone knows….and so, what say you….what is the name and what or how is this one used?
....hint, ’wood joinery’.... and this is a hand tool to be used for hand …..
....also it might be good to understand that all you see, in the way of diagrams may not be part of the ‘hint’ or the ‘story’...., but all here if understood again in the light of ‘wood joinery’, has a story to tell, but then one might just get the name from looking at what is being made….
....and then also it might help to remember, that I cut and saw most of my wood joints by hand….”yes I do, Sam I am….I do so like ‘wood joints’ by hand….and again I hope to complete and post by Wednesday or Thursday….
....and then also no wood story can ever be complete without a flower….’day lily’ to go along with this blog in the season of beauty….
I’m sorry if I do not get back today on any answers, but will try and look here once more before I head out and then will check in again tonight….have a ‘very good’ day!
”....it was then found to be true, that in my place of joy-full living, i am the total completed piece, as found in all these works of ‘wood art’….”
