Ok! After just preaching to one of my kids about procrastination, I realized I must practice what I preach and get my butt over to the shop to snap a couple of photos if I didn’t do nothing else.
Also, since the topic of this post was in twos, I wanted to bring up something else in twos. I’ve asked on my personal blog at blogspot a few times for some of my readers to send me photos of their projects for me to post on my blog. I have two guys that have sent me photos. I thought some of you may want to go to my blog to see. One of them has sent my a lot of photos. Some are already up and I’ll be posting more of his work over the next couple of days. I usually never do this, but it is excellent work they have done. I have permission to use their photos on my blog, but not anywhere else. So I didn’t feel comfortable posting them here. I am in the process of trying to get both of these guys to join Lumberjocks.

Looking good. Looking real good. William, I actually have a project that will probably only take a day to make coming up real soon. I think you’ll love it, since it will KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF WITH THE AWESOME POWER OF VERY LOUD METAL….... I’m having to find small side projects that can be done rather quickly, since this bench is probably going to take me all summer to complete.
I was hoping to get some work done this weekend, but I spent it recovering from a day long headache from Hell.

Are we talking loud metal of tools? Or loud metal such as heavy metal music? I love both.
I look forward to seeing what you make. I know your shop time has been limited lately.

That book stand came out excellent, Great Combined Effort Guys!!
Did you have an anxious moment, at the end, when you popped it open? ;-)
Hope your back gets better for you my Friend…

Super D popped it open. I don’t know if its because he’s done one before, or if he’s just that good, but it didn’t seem like he was anxious at all. He made it all look easy. If I wasn’t already wise enough (wise meaning my dumb@$$ already tried it before), I’d give it a go on my own.

Ok sorry guys haven’t been online much. Motorcycle fever.
First the bike.

Now that was a great story William. I had a great time. The saws I brought were a dozuki and kataba. I started all four corners with the dozuki then finished with the kataba.

I only took one photo. Sorry..

William I think with a little chisel work it will open up a little more.

And if you noticed it took me 3 cups of coffee to get it split.
I only ate 4 bugs on the trip there and back. Not bad for this time of the year;)
Now what kind of wood thingie can I make for my bike…. hmmmmmm?

Wood coffee cup holder for the bike, it gets my vote.

Wooden license plate trim.
Wooden light trim, all of them.
Wooden seat (ouch!).
You can make anything out of wood.
My seat mount is proof of that.

KTMM. I didn’t get your text until this morning. I turned in early last night. I can’t wait to see them.

Nice looking skoot, dude. I’ve seen a couple of nice jobs done on wooden saddlebags if that gives you any ideas.
