Work Through It

I've been busy.  

 Laying out the toolbox panels to ensure a continuous grain pattern.

I'm working on my toolbox, which is one of my course requirements at NBSS.  

I've got the case dovetailed together, dadoes are cut on the interior to hold the drawer dividers, rabbets are cut on the back to hold the ship lap in place, and I'm almost done patching all of my dirty dovetail gaps.

 Dovetail bliss.

Dovetail bliss.

Next up will be finish milling the divider stock and fitting them to the dadoes in the case.  A little time on the mortiser and some hand work and I hopefully will be able to move on.

 The bottom drawer of my toolbox should house my essential planes nicely.

I've got a few other things going on that have been taking up my time.  I'm working on a rocking chair.  I don't have any pictures of it yet but to be honest there's not much to photograph right now.  Such is the way of the Shaker chair.

All of that, combined with working for NBSS nights and weekends and preparing to sublet my apartment and move to a new neighborhood and I've barely got time to eat when I get home.

Oh, and I cut off the side of my finger Friday.

Click if you like looking at gross things.

Life.

Until next time.
