Other than sharpening and moving a few things around in the shop I've not made anything mostly because of dealing with AFib for the last three months. The AFib is gone for now and my energy is returning to normal. It is time to make something and what better way to start than a small box made from shop scrap.
Here is my return to the shop box. Lots of things where the forehead met
palm but it still made a box. Biggest problem after installing the
hinges and mounting the top the lid started doing stupid wood tricks.
That's the bad news, the good is (big if) if I wish making another top is easy. Some of the wavy edge chamfer is from trying to clean up a bad lid, some from hadn't done it in months. So shoot me :-).
Next up is the much talked about kitchen table, most of the wood for the base is in the wood pile I just have to stay out of MsBubba's line of sight long enough to get started.
MsBubba asked if I would show her how to make a box using hand tools. We
spent a couple of hours yesterday breaking down stock by hand and
getting it square and ready to mark out. BTW, ain't no way we will do
anything on the machines, not even the band saw, I like her hands with all ten fingers.
It should be fun making making a box with MsBubba because this really is
starting from zero skills and it is making me think about the basics.
