Lamp Base from Plywood
Last year we made a round stacked plywood lamp base and it turned out awesome. I’ve been thinking about it lately and decided we really needed two of them.
Scroll Saw Class is in Session.
If you ever thought you couldn’t use a scroll saw, you might be wrong. Our friend Greg, who took the aerial pictures of our neck of the woods from the helicopter, asked Jim to make him a custom piece for a friend of his. Then he had a brilliant idea. He asked if he could help, and that would give it more meaning (and him more bragging rights).
A snowman walked into the shop
A snowman walked into the shop and asked for a plane look, just a close shave and a bit of a trim.
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…
In the workshop today
No big projects on the go these days, but lots going on in the workshop.
Primitive Angels 2017
In the latter part of 2016 we made some primitive angels. Now its time to make some more. With no more pallets boards handy, I gathered some blue denim pine that’s been drying in the shop from the trees we cleared in the summer 2016.
Planing some blue denim pine
On the workbench this late afternoon we have some blue denim pine. Theses boards came from the pine trees we cut down at Kings United Church in Loch Katrine. We have some special angel projects in mind for these boards.
Wood slice dehydrator
The ultimate in woodworking and baking… birch cookies 🙂 I converted the solar panel to see if this would work.
