One great thing about having a good roof over my shop for the first time in years is that I no longer have to have tarps all over my equipment. I also have sky lights in there now so there is more natural light.
On the next rainy day I plan to spend the day in the shop cleaning out the accumulation of stuff and scrap wood and I want to get back down to business of making furniture. I make tables for indoor use and Adirondack chairs for outdoor use.
I love Adirondack chairs. They seem to have the best design for back and butt comfort and the wide arms can not only cradle your arms, but also have enough room to hold a drink and a plate.
I want to build saddle racks with wheels. I want to do some lathe work. I want to make new kitchen cabinets. I want to try to make a new dining room table.
A few years ago I took an alder I cut down to the mill in Olney. I have a big stack of alder boards that I’ve been wanting to put to use. I have a twelve foot figured maple plank that I‘ve been dreaming about for years. This winter I’ll be back in business.
