I cant make another cutting board or bowl.
I was about to undertake a huge cleaning, meaning removing everything from the shop, everything, every single piece of wood, machine, handtools, drawers, and clean every single item, but then I came to my senses.
let the next owner clean up the dust in the garage, and if I go, let the next owner worry about the cleanliness of my tools, both stationary and hand.
frank.......I know hes recuperating, and hell be happy to know, he can say, told ya so, the outdoor pt table I made curled up 2 weeks after I made it.
so I took the top off, cut it up, saved whatever I could, and started cutting pieces for childrens Adirondack chairs.
I bought some pt decking on sale, and made a new top, and it hasn't curled, I left space this time, enough with glueups.
Some of the wood I used on the childrens chairs were from the table, some was old pt pieces, some were from someones hand rails I took the wood, planed it down, and some of it has nail or screw holes in it, but I did my best to cut around those pieces, but some pieces needed to have nail holes.
Heres one set I finished yesterday, made the table today, and really used scraps for the table. I wanted to have each set with one of those pastel rainbow colored beach umbrellas, but I could only get the blue striped one on sale for 6 bucks, so this set will go with a blue umbrella
The set that's up there on the overhead platform in the shop, well, that's 2 adult chairs I cut from new wood. I cant assemble them as I don't have room for them, and I don't want to leave them outside before the recipient gets them.Oh, the recipient is Bob, yes, he has to endure my obligatory set of Adirondack chairs I make anyone I visit who hosts a gathering. I cant help myself.
my son thought I was depressed with no projects, so I was in his house today, measuring the wardrobe cabinet I made him, he wants an addition added in the center for more clothes, whatever, its the biggest wardrobe Ive ever seen, it will be 8-9 feet wide, and 7 feet tall.(in his bedroom besides 2 dressers), He also requested 2 nightstands, he feels really bad for his dad, with nothing to do.
got some plywood, so I can start the new cabinet as soon as tomorrow if no rain.(Ill break down boards outside with track saw, easier for me to maneuver sheets outdoors with nothing blocking me)
and that's that, was going to make a couple of round cutting boards, cut out a template, but again, I came to my senses.
enough with the cutting boards, I have no where to put the recent ones I made.
(Im bringing 3 of them with me to florida next month, I have to take an extra suitcase for all the cutting boards and beach bags my wife made)
some pictures. boring stuff I know, but I always enjoy making something that I drew up a permanent set of plans for.(like someone doesn't know what sheets of plywood looks like. but the close up of the back seat slat I was trying to show some of the wood has screw/nail holes, almost most of the chairs were reused/repurposed pt)
