This year I’m making a hand cut dovetail recipe box for my wife and the Ulu Knife and chopping block for my Mom, I’m also turning some ornaments. I also turned a 10 inch maple bowl for a buddy of mine, there was a park near where we work that cut down all the trees to redo it, we went and loaded a bunch up for projects.

I made a picture frame and a couple of pens. First time I have made either. Hopefully they go over well.

I turned 20 Weed Pots for gifts at the office. Made my daughter in law a french rolling pin and an end grain cutting board. Grand kids got the year off from grandpa boxes. I may have time to make a recipe box for the wife.

That sucks.. What surgery did you have? I have partial rotator cuff tear, trying to get it healed up with therapy now but looking like surgery for me too – curious what the recovery time is going to be like if I need the surgery..

Rotar cuff surgey isn’t fun, i had the right one done a few years back, and well didn’t stick with the regiment of not using it, and about four weeks in the recovery, tore the repair by using it too much, so, you know where that went, but second time i was smart enough to stick with plan, and well, years later, what a good thing, almost like new, now to do the other, certainly was a little painful after, but once it got past that first couple days, it was more of an inconvience trying to shower, wipe yer keyster and do one handed stuff.
good luck with it

Now for Xmas, i made the SIL’s all pastry boards, shipping them to italy, california and all over the us cost more than the national debt, but alas, the boss made the edict that it would happen and it did.

built a couple rifles (ar-15’s) for two of my SIL’s, the other two got rifles last year.
I”m a gun guy, collect and build, refurb ect.
and a gaggle of odd ball cutting boards, about 40 oughta be close, ole gal gave them to friends and family.

I sure like building stuff, have been reviewing the projects forum, and wow, some awesome ideas, so after this upcoming blessed event, i’m gonna attempt some of the more complicated ones thru spring, and see how it goes.
thanks to all for info, and guidance.
