Update your weekend projects.

Recommended Posts

Busy weekend for me. A very close friend and mentor of mine passed away and I attended his funeral on Saturday morning. Kind of starts a day off slow but thankful what you have and can do. He went down very fast but had lived a wonderful live all the way to his last day.



I did get some time in the shop to glue up five medium size cutting board and got them out of the clamps.

Four small ones in the clamps but will be ready to get out tonight.



I also got all of my panels cut to size on the Cherry Blanket Chest and the rabbits cut for the bottom. It is ready to start some assemble tonight. Should start to look like a chest this week finally.



So how did you do on your projects? Any updates you can share with us.

It's a good thing John has an abundance of clamps, eh?



As for me, got about a dozen military stars cut finished and a couple of maps.  Spent a number of hours cutting a free-standing eagle, my son, the clutz, came down to the shop, touched it, fell over onto the floor, had a formal funeral for said eagle.  (@%%##$%^%$E)   Won't get another one cut for the show this weekend.  Oh, well, it was fun cutting it out.



Now I can focus on cutting some easy stuff for the show.

Update on a plane:   the Kobalt #4 is going back to Lowes.    CanNOT make it work.    I have a 50+yr old Dunlap that works better. 



iron needed a LOT of work to get flat, square, and almost sharp



Chipbreaker is a JOKE!    CanNOT get it to sit even close to flat on the blade.   



Plane a wee bit of Walnut, and found a bunch of walnut junk stuck under the chip breaker.....Deal Breaker! 



Kobalt is supposed to be Guaranteed for life...we"ll see..

Hey Fred, what is that saying about clamps, "you can never have too many!" Man is that right. Seems every time I think I am good, I need to clamp something else and need another set.

John, I have a fair amount of clamps. But you are right, you can never have enough. And seems we all run short at the worst time. I'm working on getting my count up,


Fred, I feel your pain. The wife dropped a John 3:16 heart and it went into pieces. Thankfully I could repair most of it. Also was glad it was already stained, the glue won't show up as clear spots in the finish.


I got a few more Bible verse plaques cut out and ready for finish. Trying to get some Mother's Day stuff done and the Mrs. keeps adding to the list. I really need to get back into taking pitures of this stuff.
