So here are some photos of what I’ve been working on for the last couple of weeks in the Barkwhistle Wood Shop:
Yeah, pretty much nothing. January doldrums, or something. I say “pretty much” nothing because technically, there was something. I thought I would make a little caddy to hold my various replacement carbide cutter heads in their little packages, sorted into each type, to replace the empty yogurt container I have been using for that purpose. Just a simple plywood and hardboard thingy, but with small rabbets and dadoes to keep everything lined up and to hone my skills.
I don’t know exactly what went wrong, but let’s just say there will be no photos. Probably. My little interior dividers were so out of alignment the first time that I had to start them over. Still not perfect, but enough is enough. It’s just a stupid little shop project, so I probably didn’t slow down enough to finesse the details the way you need to with any joinery. Like the title says, a humbling (and frustrating) project.
I think I will just putty up the excess gaps in the enlarged-into-alignment dadoes and spray paint the whole thing orange. THEN I might post a picture…
