    Right now I am building a toboggan for my grandson Ethan. At the bottom of this post is a photo where I am sanding the inside curve of one of the ash slats using a rounded profile on my Festool linear sander.

    That’s an old toboggan in the background that I am repairing at the same time. It was (my wife) Margaret’s when she was a child.

    In an earlier thread (http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...read.php?t=294
    ) I described the two tool cabinets that I built for my daughters.


    Added Later: The only way I could get the picture to display was to include it at the end. The in-line picture facility does not appear to be working.

    I can see it now Tod. In order to do so, I had to move the picture out of line and simply show it at the end.

    Vaugh inspired me and I am making a flyrod case for my FIL. He loved this old oak I saved and it is to thin to do much with. Decided this was a good idea but man has it been harder than I expected to get good tight joints!

    Hoping the finish isn't tacky when I wrap it and the paper doesn't stick! :-)

    My wife wanted two cabinets for the Laundry room. This is the sides for a free standing cabient. Then I am going to build a long overhead cabient for over the sink, washer and dryer. No plans to have these done before CHRISTmas.
