    I am a bit behind the curve as I had to get my bench built in my basement area first, but I finally got it finished and the shop all setup. I talked the clock as my first project in the new shop. I had built about 8 of Paul’s Shanker Candle Boxes from his book previously, but this is only the second project I attempted. I was actually quite shocked and thrilled with how it turned out.

    Nice David!

    I still haven’t built one. First the spring pole lathe, than the clock or maybe the clock after the coffee table….

    I still haven’t build other projects. too.

    After laminating the benchtop and the aprons for the workbench I realized that I forgot a christmas present for my sister and it was the 21st.

    One half of one apron turned into a pair of legs connected by a rail with through mortise and tenon joints (rounded over – I round over all the time since I follow Pauls lessons. There were times wenn I rounded over every piece of scrap wood that could not escape my fingers ;-))

    The other half of the apron turned into a shooting board that I needed to plane the legs ends. Than I cut deep dadoes in the underside of the (work)benchtop to give home for the legs.

    On the 23rd I had a christmas present (pretty heavy to carry) and my sister has a bench on her corridor 😉

     

    I enjoy working wood in Germany.

    Thanks all!! It is always such a good feeling seeing it all come together at assembly time. Busily working on one of the totes right now.
