...and that includes slathering glue on the ends (let’s try that) and going inside from time to time so I could dunk my head in the sink. First time with the drawknife, fun!

Hopefully, those are legs for your shave horse… 30 minutes would be 5 with one…

I was hoping someone would ask what this was about but I guess I’m the only one confused. Ok. What did you make? What did you slather the glue on? Why did you dunk your head in the sink from time to time?

Sorry guys, I’m used to the days when there were only 2000 of us on here, and most people read most of the blog posts. This was a follow-up to my post of 6 days ago entitled “Hey, Free Wood!

So to answer your question, Jim, I had just gotten some wood from a felled tree in our neighborhood but was having problems with the ends cracking. So I sliced some hockey puck-sized pieces off the ends (seen above), slathered glue on the fresh ends, and peeled all the bark off.

And I dunked my head in the sink because I live in Malaysia and it’s the hot time of year – upper 80s to low 90s and very humid. It’s hard work! :)
