Good morning on this hot, humid Monday in Nova Scotia. We finally got a little rain but it brought humid conditions with it. We spent Saturday catching up on the little things that haven’t been getting done. Jim worked at a neighbours fixing her windows after ordering the parts a few weeks ago. And this happened…again…
When we last talked, the shipping container progress looked like this…
I was wishing for a cloudy day and today started that way so we were out ready to work by 8am.
Back to work on the shipping container.
I milled some of the smaller sugar maple limbs for live edge slabs. The limbs had a curve to them, so I cut them live edge to get the most I could from the limbs. The limbs were about 9-10 inches wide.
Today I set about to slab the remaining trunk portion of this big ol’ sugar maple tree. This is not the stump. The trunk at the stump is well, still on the stump. It was cut this high off of the ground to safely fell the tree.
We had a little fun this weekend creating new Maritime themed projects.
No big projects on the go these days, but lots going on in the workshop.
The last thing on our to-do list for Kings United Church was to make a new sign for beside the new front doors.
We decided to make another trough(aka trencher bowls). There are so many possible shapes for these troughs, this one turned out very different from the first one we made.
