I’ve been busy milling down hunks of wood to the same dimensions. wee!

I got the jointer! It’s been very handy so far. I’ve been happy with it.

I then did a bunch of glueing and a lot more milling and ended up with a bunch of little boards.

And I made a bunch of little boards with just maple, rather than maple and something exotic.

I spent a lot of time today listening to WRRRRRRRRRRR (in addition to EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE of the sheet router)....


I then took a few minutes and cut 96 more maple blanks for the all-maple boards.

And this is where I left today. I stopped because I ran out of glue!

I almost forgot what you are making, but I didn’t. I did go back to check to make sure ;-)) Hope you win the big prize!! Keep up the good work ;-) When do you have to have it done?

well you are into it now

taking big boards
and making little bitty ones
from them

so you can glue them up
into big boards again

the essence of woodworking !

I am supposed to install it on Saturday!!!! So we’ll see how this week goes. :-)

It is a rather awkward phase of it where I am just finishing up the finishing cuts on Earth’s surface so while that’s been working basically non-stop for the past several days, it doesn’t look all that different in the photos.
