    Going to Make Some Sawdust again.

    Well, after almost two years of not being able to do any WW'ing I've spent about three days cleaning my garage/shop so I can make some sawdust.

    I will now finish two flag cases that I started over 2 years ago. One is for my brother and the other will be for my flag when that day comes.

    I think I'll then begin the process of making several drawers for my two work benches. Never done drawers before, but I think I can do it.

    I'll give updates as I go along with some pictures too.

    Glad you are back at it Karl

    I'd be interested in seeing your flag cases. I'm in the process of making one for my father in laws flag.

    Well, here's what the shop looks like cleaned up and mostly workable.

    Here's a couple of pics of the flag cases I'm hoping to finish up in the next week or so.
    First is cherry harvested from my property. I think I'll keep this one for my flag.

    Here's the second one that I'll send to my brother for his flag. It's Paduak IIRC. Sorry it's a little dark.

    I'll post a couple more pics after I finish these two cases.

    P.S. OOPS. That first pic in the second set of the flag cases is cherry also. Didn't look at it closely before I posted.

    with all those tools laying on their sides, it's going to be awkward don't you think...

    Glad to see you're getting back into the shop... I would hate it if I couldn't go out to mine everyday... as I tell most people at the markets I do.... "it's what keeps me out of the bars and off the highway"...

    Good luck and happy woodworking.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
