I still have alot to tell you and show you from NY, had the chance to visit Sal Marino from Monster Woodshop, as well as Brian from Integra, who makes saw blades, router bits and also has a sharpening service, which I just had Brian sharpen about 20 of my saw blades, WOW is all I have to say, But for a day or so here, I have to rock and roll, got several projects to be done by the weekend.
It seems every time I think I’m getting ahead of the game, something throws a wrench in it, I’m so far behind, but will get it done, it just never seems to fail, so today I am wrapping up the build on the pull apart table, many of yo have asked for more info on it, so i will blog it as well, but to do so I need to get it all wrapped up.
Over the weekend Ed and I cleaned the shop , rearranged some things around for better flow, basically shoveled out, so the shop is relatively clean, and that always makes for better working, and faster… so that will be a big help.
Carl Letts is coming up tomorrow and bringing some reclaimed pine he found for me in North Carolina, and at some point I need to go to the mill and get some red oak, and poplar, will use the red oak for one of the pie safes, and trying to decide if I want to use poplar or the reclaimed pine for the second one , I like the old pine, it can be gorgeous, but it can also be tough to deal with, so guess I will see what we have when Carl gets here, I also have some Butternut, and some sassafras .. ( oak looking , worm holes ,some ambrosia ), so after seeing the pine, we can decide, what would be your choice for the pie safes, remember they are a country utilitarian piece, not a fancy formal piece, let me know if you will , your opinion is what I like.
well off to the saws, got a ton to get done
