As I mentioned, I attempted to make some arched candle holders(Glenns method), but I lack the talent, and tried to take a short cut first attempt, then built the jig, but still managed to mess up. Trashed 2 blades on the bandsaw, and I decided to order new tires for the bandsaw wheels since I noticed I damaged them with the trashed blades.
The chunk of wood I had glued up from scraps, today I decided to cut something out of it, to hold some voltives, and my wife said it looks like a sleigh, my daughter expected 3 arches, she wasnt thrilled.
Flatwork gone flat.
(I told my daughter life is full of dissapointments)
I also sorted through the scraps since I cleaned up alot of the garage, and decided to make boards. I dont really enjoy the cutting board thing, because its time consuming and I dont sell them, only give them away as gifts, but my wife did ask me to make some gifts.
I managed to get 6 made. 2 small ones, nothing special, had alot of 6-8 inch scraps, and 4 bigger ones. One of the bigger ones, the nicest I feel of all, ended up having a seam open a tiny bit. Now I dont know if I should give it as a gift, its inferior craftmanship. Take a look, should I trash it? (second seam from left)
Not a good week for flatwork for me, too many mistakes, some costly ones.
