Just came in from the wood shop. It's 35* out side and jut 42* in the shop. No heat in it yet hopefully next year. Most of the work I'm doing now is for Christmas presents. Normally do them in friends shop but he has smallet power tools and I needed bigger ones. Need to have them done in a week and a half. Making a planter for my Daughter in law looks like a porch swing. Have to make one for a great friend our daughters who helped he at the wedding. Making two at a time. Still need to make three more before next fall. Expensive if I had to buy all the wood. About 14 years ago I was given 22 40' white pine trees. My old boss and I cut them down and my BIL hauled them on his log truck. His brother cut them up for me into 2" X 4"s and 1" X 4", 1" X 8", 1" X 10", 1" X 12" and 2" X 6" and 2" X 10". All 10' long. I have used some for tongue and groove for a few rooms and a wall in the garage. Still have a lot left. Using that up. Been blessed with a lot of great wood tools so I can plane, edge and rip and cross cut all of this with our tools. No pics yet but will when I get further along.
Next project is for a old style baby cradle. Made with over 100 year old barnwood. Going next week to pull the wood from a barn of a friend who is tearing it down. Roger
P.S. that's not me in the picture. I don't look that good. LOL
