No earth shattering news here just wanted to share the great feeling it is to actually get some shop time, time that has been extremely rare of late. I finally bought a new space heater; a 4800 watt electric, only worked my required hours at the Centre (no overtime, or volunteering as Jenn puts it, today :-). The heater brought the shop up from +2 to about 12 degrees in about an hour… it actually was beginning to feel stuffy as I was planing my drawer pieces flat. Talking about planing I really really like my LV bevel up plane (see my avatar!) whisper thing shavings of some difficult maple and I am really starting to appreciate what a good plane feels like. I thought planing was a chore before (with my old #4) now I am having a blast …the hockey game on the radio, the schwoosh of the plane and curls of maple filling my bench …. ahhh what a great way to unwind from work…blast I shouldn’t have thought of work now it all comes crashing back :-) Ah well I will go to sleep tonight snuggled up to Jenn and dream of her and whisper thin maple shavings…
Good night all!
