Work Bench Update

My work bench is taking shape, I need to decide on dog hole locations, holdfasts, and a leg vise. I’m not sure as to an end vice. I will add dog holes as I need them just put a few in the front for work hold downs and go from there. The location of the dog holes will be decided after I get my holdfast to get a better idea on a lay out measurement.

Old man winter is right around the corner

It’s that time of the year again, when woodworkers are starting to hibernate in their work shops searching through books, and plans, getting  ideas for those winter projects. Lets see Christmas is right around the corner, just a couple of Months away. I have four, count them four, grandchildren now. I must admit its been a busy year for new additions to our family.  The oldest just a bit over three years old, the youngest a few days old.

I remember when I was just starting to get into woodworking, I always said ” One day I’ll be making a few things for my grandchildren ” that day has arrived.  But what?  a rocking horse, a toy chest, a rocking chair, I’m full of ideas and really need to get started.  The great thing about our craft is what ever we choose to build that one of a kind gift will stand alone and always have special meaning.  Take the time to find that special gift you can build for that special someone in your life…

I hope you continue to follow my blog,
