    My 2015 swap project begins

    Shamed into getting started by those boasting of being done already, here's where I'm starting!

    I'm not sure exactly what it will be but it'll start with that piece of pecan and some metal so we'll see where it goes.

    Never fear, Robert. That hunk of pecan will tell you what it wants to be!

    I also dream of a shop with north light where my hands can be busy, my soul rest and my mind wander...

    Haha, well that's alright - except for finish, I'm not a big test on scrap kinda CNC'er so there's always a chance I might make some wood for the smoker but so far so good.

    Been drawing a little today while some glue dries.

    Made a little progress today. My bride, teenager, and I spent all last weekend cleaning and organizing the shop so there was a LOTof stuff for me to 'sort' through (that's wife code for throw away, my code for find a good hiding spot in case I need it later) so the CNC had to be cleaned off first. I cleared enough that the gantry wouldn't hit anything for this size project.... The good news is, I can get to the jointer, table saw, sander, router table, and workbench now!!!

    After a minimal bit of adjusting cut paths, the dry fit went well! Now for some final details and finish! While this will be a one of a kind for the swap, my lovely bride insists I make more with this concept. lol
