Christopher and I spent the day at the shop. We threw his bike in my truck and took off about 11 this morning. We have been building a checkerboard and he wanted to make the checkers today. Spending the day with my 6 yr old at he shop is the best. He has inherited my “love” of sanding. We had to sand the checkers made from 1 1/4 dowel slices.
Managed to sand the checkerboard to 150. I forgot how difficult it was too sand oak (and birch). Need ot look up tonight how ot repair. I heard of making filler from the fine sawdust so I collected some and brought it home with me tonight. Looks like I’m going to be making alot of repairs in my newest woodworking journey. If anyone reads this and can’t make a suggestion on how ot fix minor imperfections like that miter that wold not close, please let me know.
Off to repair school..
