High folks a year ago this month I purchased a cabin and nine acres of property in southeastern Ohio and it has taken a lot of my time up making it a vacation spot for my family. At times it has felt like most of the wood that I was cutting was with a chain saw and not in my shop. I have had the time to build several things that were needed at the cabin for example a set of stairs into the loft with build in closet, or an out house, small table out of left over red elm, install a wood burning stove, gun rack and last but not least a queen size bed frame.
Currently I have made it back into the shop to once again build some furniture for the house. I started last week building three night stands out of quarter sawn white oak. Originally I was building two of them for the master bedroom when my ten year old son reminded me that he needed one. So as you know its just as easy to build three at one time as it is two or one. It took several days to thickness plan all that lumber, my least favorite part of the building process. Three 35 gallon trash bags full of saw dust. One good not is that owning a composting out house gives you a new thing to do with my saw dust. You add a couple scopes after you do your business and seriously no smell at all.
Well off again I go. I will post pictures when I get a chance. Cheers
