Psst .. check out the new shed location (the box is for the new outlets for the shed).
Someone's going to have fun building that! And a shed in the back yard means more room in the shop .. yee haa!

I keep my eye on Craigslist for less expensive wood left over from projects. So far, I've had some pretty good luck and last week some one was selling 12 to 13" wide mahogany so we journeyed over to Bremerton to pick it up this morning. We decided to make a day of it since getting to Bremerton requires an hour ride on the ferry.

I cut the sides of my saw till to look like .. well, a saw. At least that's what it looked like to me. I cut this using the band saw and then used my new Veritas® Low-Angle Spokeshave. Umm .. I've used a spokeshave before and I found it to be a difficult endeavor. I love my new spokeshave. Wow! , it was so easy to use and left a beautiful surface. I'm hooked!

I used my skewed rabbet plane and made a rabbet (a slot) for the back boards to go into. I had some left over tongue and groove fir that I will use as the back boards to the case (see picture).
Fun, fun, fun!
Party shavings and a rabbet plane!

Both allow me to be a better woodworker that I should be given the amount of time I've put in or talent I have. First, the Veritas training wheels. Bevel up planes and saw guides to name a few. Here's the saw guide.
