    vacation: day 1

    worked on the picture frames, should have them ready to be sanded by tomorrow. i've tapped them together with the help of the persuader, and added the african mahogany inserts. if lucky, i should be able to route the rabbets tomorrow as well.

    got all the parts for the foot stool cut to size, now i just have to transfer the lines for the lifts, and the cutouts. once the leg parts are glued up, i can cut them to thier proper sizes.

    with the cherry i had left over from the foot stool (how can one accidentally buy too much?), i cut a few of the parts for the table that was inspired by a greene and greene lamp.

    the only other project for this week is the set of five poster frames for the sis in law. just waiting for her to buy the lumber and the backing, then its off to the races, as they will need to be dyed, stained, and shellaced to meet the desired color.

    here are the pics: the picture frames, the foot stool parts, the table parts, and last but not least, the persuader...

    vacation: day 2

    got the cut lines drawn on the parts for the foot stool, and glued up the leg parts. not much else done, as the weather was cold and rainy today. at some point tomorrrow, i will be picking up the lumber and other stuff for the sis in law's poster frames, and will get the cutting to size, mortising, and tenoning out of the way, along with other stuff not gotten to today.

    vacation: day 3

    another wonderful woodworking day today. cold, rainy, and really windy out there all day today. sis in law couldn't get away to get the wood for her project, hopefully tomorrow. supposed to be much nicer out tomorrow as well. here's a pic of the foot stool legs in the clamps. if we get the lumber tomorrow, and the weather cooperates, i'll be a busy monkey tomorrow, and there will be more pics.
