Started work on a toy passenger train.
I do most of my woodworking on weekends.

I did plow a lot of snow, shoveled a lot of snow into two different size tractor buckets, bought an auto-darkening welding helmet for my son and paid for breakfast..... not a current photo, but you get the idea. The tractor is the same, but the snow is not.

Tractor looks nice. What model is it?


We don't get snow here so no problem working outdoors even in winters.:smile3:

Picked up the lumber for two projects. Learned a lesson in why I should not forget to wear my steel toed boots while moving lumber, particularly with panels weighing in above 90 pounds. Thankfully the lesson only entailed a painful bruise.

Finished up this nice little hollow form that I rough turned a few months ago. Wood is spalted red sycamore. Also roughed out 2 more bowls and put them up to dry. Big pile of shavings from the lathe = a good Sunday afternoon

Not WW related but a few others posted as such and well, you asked.

Finally got to shoot my newest pistol today that I bought 3 weeks ago. Only 100 rounds through it today but so far am loving it. Canik TP9 SA.

Today I ruined all of the pine 1x4x8's I bought trying to make a train table for my sons. I tried to make a support beam underneath via mortise and tenon (first time ever trying to make a m&t) -- failed miserably at that. Then tried to cut eight 18" legs for the table on my table saw. You'd think that would be easy but nooo, I actually botched that too when I tried to clamp them all together and cut them so they'd all be the exact same length. Failure of a day. I hate being a noob at woodworking. Such an easy project and I utterly botched it by trying to do fancy joinery and not having the correct tools.

Probably can also be used in woodworking, but with care.

I cobbled together a circle jig for the bandsaw, and then used it to cut 4 bowl blanks. Then I rough turned 1 of the bowls.

I had to repair a window frame whose corner had rotted away. Made a 10" cut on each side of the corner, and fitted a replacement corner. The joints had to be planed and sanded until they are barely visible. After the glue dries, I will fit the glass and hinges.

I spent six hours at the tax accountants office doing my 2015 tax returns and getting a headache. Getting a few bucks back, now I have to figure out what tool(s) to buy next.

Flipped the blades on my DW735 planer this morning, plan to continue planing down some rough QSWO for our new kitchen table.

what i did today

First i went to the doctor to have my thumb checked from cutting it on the table saw yesterday evening. My wife usually takes care of those things but it wouldn't stop bleeding because I'm on blood thinner sense i had blood clots. Then i worked on some trucks I'm making for my first craft show in March.

Oh, I am sorry to hear that! I hope your thumb is OK. Please work safe.

This forum is amazing, because you get to be in touch with fellow woodworkers from around the world. We share a passion and are ready to share our experiences. There is no such forum here in India, so I am enjoying the discussions here. In fact people in India look down upon woodworking as a menial task, and woodworking as a hobby is virtually unknown .. that is why I think "made in India" is not going to be a label to be sought anytime soon :(


Only in US, Canada, Europe, Japan, and maybe China there are people taking pride in woodworking.
