    A new desk for my oldest son.

    In addition to working on the bed, My eldest son and I were working on a new desk for his room.

    Here I am working on the shelfs which will hang under the top on the left side.





    Simple rabbet and dado for the shelves section

    used my new clamps to
    set up a sacrificial fence.

    here are the shelves all glued up


    We used my 'new' Kreg K3 Jig that I purchased last year.




    Here's are the leg pieces for the desk... all sanded and ready for assembly tomorrow.

    Now that my son is home from Iraq I'm hoping that we will have more "shop time" together. His kids have asked for wood toys for Christmas.
    Nothing beats the time you spend with your kids one on one.

    Looks good so far. Nice solid straight forward construction. Glad to see you in the shop with an able assistant.

    My wife did Like the look though I Might go back to it again once things warm up again. Now that the weather is getting cooler, I'm letting it grow out again.

    Thanks Norm!

    I realized not too long ago that I hadn't used the shop 'enough' all summer, and decided to change that ... HOpefully in a big way.

    I'm going to be knocking out a few more projects, shop stuff mostly, this weekend. I've got Two football games and a social event in the way, but I'm planning to spend at least half the day in the shop all weekend.
