A couple of weekends ago I was back home visiting family and finally putting the finish on the book shelf I made my mom for Christmas. My 10 year old niece took an interest so I gave her an old shirt, a few directions, and put her to work. I think I might have to come up with a project for her.
Not much else has been doing these days as work tends to consume my weekdays. This leaves only weekends which I have to divide up amongst family and friends. The big news is I am heading down to The Woodwright’s School at the end of the month for the tool chest class with Chris Schwarz. What? Don’t you have a tool chest in the works? Yes, but it is way to small and the wife wants furniture.
My main reason for taking the class is this: time. I seem to have more money than time these days. Overtime is a mixed blessing. I battled with myself over whether it would be worth it to take the class. I can dovetail and do all the other operations needed to make the chest, but I could also use a saw before taking the sawing class last summer. However, I still learned quite a bit in that class and I am sure I’ll get plenty out of this one. Besides, who wouldn’t want the opportunity to hang out with Roy and Chris again?
