I was asked to work a shift at the wood shop today, 1000 to 1600 on Saturdays
So I brought along my pieces and finished cutting my dovetails. Someone asked me why I did not uses the dovetail jig in the corner... Too noisy, makes a mess and I don't like the look of router cut dovetails thank you...
So keeping within the scope of were I was I donned ear defender while chopping my dovetails with Gerhard's Jenesaiquoi persuader :-)
I played with it a few times but this was its first real workout. I love it!
Nice heft and balance, make quick work of chopping. Well done Gerhard and thank you!
two sides done
All sides done and dry fitted
Next would be cutting a rabbet in the back for the back panel, then glue it, clean up the joinery, prime and paint it, then put the back in.
Once that is done, the fun part would be to make suitable holder for the tools intended for it. Said tools selection has kind of grew since I first start this project...hummm decisions, decisions...
While I was there I spotted another sign of Spring...
The Air Cadets glider launching winch are out in the parking lot...
14 Wing Greenwood is home to large Air Cadets camps here in the summer.
Part of their program is teaching the kids to fly in a glider. I went up with them once, pretty cool, no engine noise, just the sound of the wind.... And they glide a lot better than a fighter jets, these tend to glide more like lawn darts :-)
Besides this ongoing built, I got a draft started on a blog entry on how to adjust and use my EC Stearns Hollow auger, it is a request from one of my reader following a recent blog entry.
So I wont "bore" you anymore and will catch you on the flip side
Keep your stick on the ice...
