    Anyone do any woodworking this weekend??

    Seems our off topic posts are trying to out number the woodworking related ones. So did anyone do any woodworking this past weekend or past week for that matter?

    Still slugging along on the Kayak. Work has picked up so I have slowed down on that for a few days. Expect that to change shortly though.

    No, between being gone to rendezvous and catching up on spring projects, I haven't made shavings in weeks. I'm going to need a refresher course to get going with bowls. Have tons of wood, plenty of proper tools, will be ordering a Barracuda 4 chuck this week, need to use the stuff. The gavel posted has encouraged me. I have wood setting, for months, for an Osage Orange and Dogwood gavels. Not bowls, but sumptin' to do on the spinner.

    I did turn a fountain pen late Saturday evening after working in the yard and trying to find a leak in the pond liner. Went out to the shop a couple times yesterday to get a couple things I needed inside the house.

    I have made two more bandsawn boxes, the last one in the shape of a monster truck with two hidden drawers (one under the hood one in the bed). It is in its rough stages but maybe get pictures tomorrow.

    Just playing around with the photonic scrollsaw and ten different flavors of peel-and-stick veneer from Rockler. About 19" diameter on a 21"x22" piece of birch ply...probably just frame it up and hang it somewhere.
    Where are we going? And what am I doing in this handbasket?

    Finally sorted out all of my little bits of hardware (Screws/nuts/bolts/etc.) into bins.

    Table saw is cleared off and is not playing the part of a Junk table.

    My workbench is cleaned off and usable.

    Sorted out my latest order of wood and verified I got what I paid for. 2 20bdft Ups packs of QSWO, and 2 20bdft UPS Packs of poplar (I did get what I ordered, and Just a little bit more, by my reckoning)

    Started picking through the wood to figure out what pieces to use for what parts of and end table I'm going to make.

    Feels good to be out in the shop again. It's been too long...

    Work every day for about one hour and weekend, on my second low table, so far I have only the lumber sized, straigthened and starte to make the first secret miter dovetail joint, it is taking more than I expected because I need to have a very tight miter joint.

    Pics to come soon. ( when I get some more)
    Best regards,
    Toni
