It will be nice to share what woodworking we do on a daily basis.


So I would be interested in knowing what you did today?


On my side, today I cut 8 tenons for a lawn bench project I am working on. Tomorrow I plan to cut matching mortises, and fit with dowels.


Thanks for sharing your work!:smile3:

Today is Saturday and the woodworking stops. Yesterday I rough cut out an entry door I'm building for a customer. It is being made out of 8/4 soft maple.
Weekends is when I do most of my woodworking.:smile3: Today I also had to fix a broken spring of a door handle ... But most of the time was spent on finding my circlip plier which I had forgotten where I had put it when used years ago:surprise2:

I've been packing the wood shop for storage. We are moving, and 1) not sure where we are landing, and 2) will be renting for some time before buying a house.

Weekends is when I work on my cars since the town I live in doesn't have a competent mechanic. I really hate working on cars but somebody has to do it.

Ditto. I too hate working on cars and avoid chores such as oil changes until it is really, really necessary.:thumbsup:

I'm down to a car and a truck. I found the most expensive way to get free oil changes is buy new cars with an extended maintenance warranty.
The other thing I've been told is the most expensive way to get your laundry done is to stay married.
Actually I'm well kept. She retired and then went back to work because she doesn't have hobbies except for shopping.
I retired and took up the hobby of buying tools.....

I had to do a brake job on my truck today. My joints hurt after doing it, and I'm not NEARLY as old as some dudes on this forum.

No WWing for me today either, chores and the Father/Daughter dance tonight.

Nothing so far, but it's only 4:30 PM................... :surprise2:


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.

During rise times making bread, I'll keep working on two copper D-adze blades forged from 1/4" x 1 1/2" copper bar. Just an experiment but the tools predate even the bronze age.

I emptied the dust collector and cleaned the filter, I glued some edge banding on a nightstand top, and I made a walnut base for a glass globe I was hired to make. Hopefully after dinner I can make the drawers for the nightstand. image-3744207785.jpg image-2214434625.jpg image-3055245101.jpg

I had my monthly woodturners club meeting today, so that took most of the day. Then I visited with a friend at his shop that I hadn't seen in 6-8 months. It was a great visit. After my wife suffered a heart attack last Sat (she's 43 BTW), I have started doing some reflecting and prioritizing. Its funny how that happens... Then I came home and made a gameplay for tomorrow. Its supposed to be high 60's again, so it'll be great to work in the shop with the garage door open.

I cut materials for 6 wall cabinets for my mother's craft room. 15" x 44" x 15". Made them from 1/2" birch with 3/4" poplar face frames. Solid backs with rabbeted back sides and dados for the top and bottom. Glued and stapled the first one as a prototype but laid the rest out and painted. Tomorrow they get assembled. Will cut 3/4 melamine for the shelves and maybe hang them if I'm not too tired.

My body hurts from standing on concrete all day.

I grabbed some tools out of my shop to fix something in the house. Then cared for my sick wife and sick 3 month old son, all while playing and hanging out with my 2 year old daughter today. Maybe next weekend I'll have some good shop time again....

Today I started a major remodel project on our master bath. I tore out a perfectly good shower today. Hey, it was "outdated". So, I'm on it.
I need to keep the wife off Pintrest. Too many remodeling ideas.
