So just to get a little chatter going and I haven't ask one of these in a while, I thought today would be a good time. When you are doing or planning a woodworking project, what is your favorite part of the project? 1. Drawing a scale drawing 2. Building a prototype 3. Dimensioning the material 4. Layout 5. Joinery 6. Assembly 7. Sanding 8. Staining or finishing 9. Just seeing the end results!
Tuned up the saws yesterday. They got new blades, too. So, I’ve got a few to send out for sharpening. Most are Tenryu blades. Fine blades. One is a Diablo. Don't think I'll be that stupid again. They're just not up to snuff. My sharpening guy will probably chastise me. Pulled the rough walnut for the rifle case prototype. Got some of it trued. Today, the rest gets done. Think I’ll divide the top into three raised maple panels with a couple flat dividers. Not sure yet. The corners will get dovetail keys. Probably maple, as well. Might have some pictures later.
I made a fun windmill several years ago and the weather had taken its toll on the wooden parts. I remade another one out of the old one, however the only thing I reused was the roller skate wheel that the blades fit in. The rest are new, including the Styrofoam blades and tail fin. This is a prototype and will be revised. It is really working good, but since I made it of Styrofoam poster board That has paper on both sides. I did paint it but in this high altitude (Denver) The sun's rays are very destructive.
