Sittin’ in the Sun

I managed to get the drawer bottom, and hinge cleats pinned in place. After a good slathering of boiled linseed oil and turpentine, all that’s left is a few days in the sun.


I was also able to put a bit of carving on the lid. You’ll be able to see it in a day or two when I take more pictures and place this box in the wareroom. I guess it’s back to the old drawing board, to figure out what to build next.

    Looks good, Ron.

    I’m building tools here. Have a rebate saw almost done (just waiting on some long saw nuts for it) and finished a turning saw from the Gramercy Tools Kit over the weekend. Next is a mount for my saw vise, which will contain a couple drawers for all my saw sharpening tools, then a plane till, and a box for all of my planemaking tools. I’ve decided I’ll make myself a set of hollows and rounds eventually.

    Wow, looks amazing. Carving seems to be second nature for you, great work.

    Beautiful craftsmanship! Be sure to sign your work and your descendants will speak well of you. As with most artists your work will become very valuable posthumously!
