I decided to spend some time in the shop today and started working on a blanket chest I am making for my mother in law for christmas. Last week I had cut up some old oak hand rails to size. I started out with the carcass rails. I ran them thru the jointer to get the face flat then ran it thru again to get side square to the face so far so good then to the planer were i slowly planed them to the perfect size. I was quite pleased with how they came out thickness was dead on width was perfect length should be an inch longer but noooooooo it was an inch shorter. I panic and look at the stack of other peices waiting there turn to be machined I start measuring the other peices luckly only two of the long rails were short. Oh well into the opps pile they go and start over. I did get them all machined today so other then that one opps all went well.

-- My theroy in wood working will be. If I'm not enjoying doing it i won't do it.
