Next Project Preview

While I'm preparing to deliver the completed dining table to my son's house, here is a sneak preview of my next project:

An entry hall coat rack I will be building for some friends. 😊

The design is inspired by a plan from an older issue of Woodsmith magazine. I have just started procuring some materials, including 22 board-feet of 4/4 red oak.

Looking forward to diving in; will keep you all posted!

Dining Table - Finishing Up

Final work on Jonathan's dining table - LOTS of sanding, then applying the finish, which is GF EnduroVar with a few drops of coffee brown dye to warm it up a bit.

Dust Collection

In between work on the dining table, I have (finally) gotten underway on the main branch dust collection piping in the shop. Going to be interesting getting all those 6" PVC fittings and pipe hung from the ceiling...

Grampa's Workshop

Pleasant View Woodworks was recently transformed into Grampa's Workshop with a visit from some dear little buddies and girlie. :)

Everyone got to try some sawing, hammering, sanding, and finishing on their special project. Special thanks also to adjunct shop supervisors Jonathan, Eric, Hannah, Sarah, and Deb.

Some budding new woodworkers! :)

Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of children is their fathers. (Proverbs 17:6)

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. (Psalm 127:3)
