Hello everybody. This isn’t a very exciting post (they never really are), but I was looking for a woodworking excuse to
WISH ALL MY LJ FRIENDS AND THEIR FAMILIES A VERY JOYOUS AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
Now about that water supply
Since buying my water cooled Tomek sharpening machine, beginning to use hot hide glue, and starting up with marquetry I find myself in need of copious amounts of water. I am also kind of tired of carrying it out to the shop in milk cartons, pitchers, etc. So I decided it was time to do something about it. I probably won’t win any plumbers award for my solution, but I think it will be quite handy. Here it is:
I am planning (or maybe just hoping) to put my new Chevalet de marqueterie where the drillpress is now, providing it will fit there. I’ve taken some measurements, but the best test will be to see if it actually fits and if I can work in such a small space.
Now that we are on the subject of the Chevalet I want to show you mine. It’s maple which I’ve jointed and planed. All I have to do now is cut the parts, do some gluing, slap on some finish and I’m in business!
Thanks for looking in. I’ll be toasting you with some homemade eggnog on Christmas morning. Have fun and stay safe.
