    unbelievable

    after i picked the wife up from the gym, she wanted to go with me to pop's to see what i was going to be up to in the shop. she wanted to know all the names of all the machines that i had, and what they did. on the agenda for today was making a smaller cutting board out of the odds and ends from the board for the fair. i showed her the sled setup, and how i was going to cut the parts. then i showed her the finer points of gluing and clamping. once the clamps were in place, we went for a walk around the nearby lake (nice evening for it too). when we got back, the glue was set up, and i showed her how to square up the board, and how to use the drum sander to flatten it out. tomorrow is finish sanding and oil. sorry, she wouldn't allow any pics.

    Sounds like the training has just begun
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    she spared you the embarrassment of pictures, doesn't want to show you up, show how easy it is, bang out a few boards on her first try.

    Dan, isn't it great when LOYL shows a real interest in your woodworking?

    In my case, my wife was familiar with a lot of tools from growing up around her grandfather and, to some extent, her ex. She easily came to another level as I got farther along with my woodworking. It's been interesting to see her in action when I have our woodworking group for a meeting in my shop. She can explain to newbies the purpose of every machine in my shop, although she has no interest in actually using any of the power tools!

    oh well, at least i got a pic of the board after i got it home. the board itself is about 8 1/2" x 13 3/4", and is going to one of her friends from church who is a pretty serious cook.

    thanks al! i'll find out tomorrow morning how well the board was received, as i noticed both that my wife had the board in her church bag, and the person's car was in the parking lot.
