My wife likes helping me in the shop. I only wish she had more time. I don’t care for sanding. She loves to sand. So guess what I happily let her do when she has time to stay over there for a while?
I don’t mind shaping things with the sander. I’m talking about the task of just smoothing boards that I don’t like so much.
Also, I don’t do paint much, but when I do, I try to plan my painting for when she’s around. She loves it.

Oh, and it isn’t as much as it looks. Except for the curved cutouts in the three plates, the rest was just ripping off parts on the table saw and putting them together. Wait till I get on the detailed scroll work for this. It is amazing how much scroll work there is to do.

Ok, I’ll go ahead and admit it I guess. You’re right. I’ve been up since about three this morning. I finally got tired of laying in bed hurting and gave up on trying to get sleep.
Ya’ll are starting to sound like my wife. Everytime I overdo it she’ll tell me she knew I was when I was doing it. When I question why she let me do it then, she’ll say, “cause it woudn’t do any good. You’d do it anyway no matter what I tell you”.

Hi Wiliam,

You certainly are making progress on this.

How deep is the throat on your scroll saw? It looks pretty big.

It’s a 16” scrollsaw.
The largest scrollsaw I have is a 16”. With spirals and this sideways blade feature on the old Craftsman though I have cut several projects that I was told could not be done on a 16”.

I was just joking with you Dennis. It doesn’t bother me much. I get people all the time telling me to slow down. I overdo my back on a regular basis. I’ve been told many times that it seems like I’m trying to hurt myself. I promise I’m not though. I just get wrapped up in a project and don’t even realize how far I’ve gone, or how far I’ve pushed myself, until it’s too late.
I get lost in wood grain. I get lost and lose all track of time. Many times I am asked how many hours I have in a project. All I can do is guess according to how many days I was on it, with an average per day depending on how my health was during that time.
My favorite story on this one is the bear and wolf. I had just gotten a book of scroll saw portrait patterns of animals. I was hurting one night and told my wife I was going to the shop and lay out a couple of patterns to occupy my mind. This was about nine at night. I started laying out the patterns and squaring up wood for two portraits, a bear and a wolf. Before I realized what I was doing, the sun was coming up and I was placing both portraits in frames, completely finished.
