  1. Excellent work! It's a shame we have to wait to see the weave, but, if you're gonna do it, you gotta do it right. This is a fine example of doing it right.
  2. I look forward to seeing how these boxes come out.

    Great find! Glad you're helping to keep this stuff alive.
  4. SWMBO took me to a yard sale today and I found a nice hatchet (it's a Plumb). I just couldn't say no to this $3 beauty. Looks like someone decided that "refreshing" the edge would help it sell.
  5. Looks like the chicks are digging the new roof!
  6. That was a great run-down on your steam bending process. That's something I would like to learn more about. Thanks for keeping us updated on this.
  7. can't wait to see how all this turns out! Great haul on the wood!!
  8. Gluing up some roof panels for the chicken coop......
  9. An emotional weekend for myself. I would like to take this opportunity to say: To the brothers and sisters who came before me.......Semper Fi! To the brothers and sisters who come after me.......Semper Fi! To all those I lost and to all those who remain......Semper Fi!
  10. Love taking the journey along with you on this project. I'm learning so much just from your pictures and descriptions. Thanks for the instruction!!
  11. John, I'm so sorry you had such a bad location. That AUBURN sign next to you must have really hurt. ROLL TIDE!
  12. The thing is, all these kids out there today that look down on us old folks, are trying to get to where we are!
  13. That cabinet scraper the wife found for me worked great at teasing out the last few shavings for a dang near perfect square edge. Maybe she does like me.....just a little bit. Now I know why he had a Veritas Variable Burnisher in the lot.
  14. Gonna try to work on the wife's pie safe. Maybe play with some of the new toys she bought me. Try to get a good, square edge......
  15. Looking forward to seeing the end results. Looks like you're off to a good start.
  16. Now, I guess, I need to build some marking gauge storage.
  17. Some are definitely task specific. I'm just not sure what task. Several Marples markers, a Stanley 102 and half a Stanley 102, couple of panel saws, and a Veritas variable burnisher.
  18. Just got in last night from being offshore for a week or so and found this on my workbench........ Apparently, my wife went to an estate sale where the deceased was "some kind of woodworker".

    Awesome build, that thing looks great! Cool way to preserve the bark, too.
  20. Looks like the Wade and Butcher arrow from my straight razor. Same folks, I guess, out of Sheffield, England. Good steel!
  21. I kinda felt bad about it.........but it didn't last!
  22. A lot of sawdust got made today!! Time to take a break, clean up and wash down some of that dust.
