    busy couple of days

    last couple of days have been very busy around here. in the last couple of days. in the last couple of days, i've made 11 new leaning wine bottle holders (round top, boat, and bottle), a small forest of christmas trees (10 sets of 3, large, medium, and small), a cribbage board in purpleheart and walnut (for my barber), and drilled the 60 pen/pencil blanks (split 3 of them). i still have to sand, oil, and shellac the wine bottle holders, and the menorahs, kwanzaa candle holders, advent candle holders, lightly sand, then paint the christmas trees, and finish off the cribbage board.

    been a busy 3 days. in spite of the wife and her ideas, i did manage to get some woodworking in. got all 30 xmas trees painted and ready for the colored lights, got the first of the kwanzaa candle holders, advent candle holders, and menorahs finished. only fly in the ointment is that i had the wrong sized candles for the menorah. then i went on to sanding the new wine bottle holders (boat, bottle, and round topped). tomorrow i'm going to glue up the brass tubes in the blanks for the pens and pencils, sanding and finishing the rest of the candle holders, and hopefully a few other things.
