Hello all you bucketeer’s. I got a message from MsDebbie asking that the participants in the class tag their posts showing the finished buckets ‘Antique Buckets’. Her message was sent 10 days ago, but I’ve been offline for quite awhile until today. I hope your bucket projects are coming along well.
I used to be a woodworker, but my wife has (once again) promoted me to gardening assistant for the duration of the summer. So far I have power raked the lawn to remove the moss, washed the entire house, garage and gardening shed outside, washed the terraces and transplanted a bunch of bushes and a couple of trees. And that’s just the beginning! Not a great future for such a lazy fellow as myself. I hope you feel sorry for me because I really need that pity right now, and I know I won’t be getting it from the wife!
I also had to cut down a 12ft high juniper and I managed to save the trunk for some sneak woodworking ,he he. In fact I did manage to cut 9 boards from a 24” length of said trunk in my bandsaw today and I’ve got more juniper and some Sycamore logs to cut up. I’ve found a really easy and safe way to cut logs with my bandsaw without a special jig. I’ll blog that as soon as I get the time.
