Needed a little project to check the calibration on my tools. Thought this board was pretty and I’ve never built any of these quick little projects (hooks, cutting boards, etc.) so I figured what the heck! Had the iron hooks in inventory.

Such a simple but useful project. That board does look pretty nice.

CarpentersCorner ... I’m calibrating everything (had to rebuild my whole shop due to flood).... finding that even if I do precise tool setup, I’m finding errors and things as I execute projects; with the volume of setup I’ve done, I’m just missing things. So, rather than discovering errors in the middle of a furniture project, I’ve been banging out a bunch of little stuff to see what errors surface. So far it’s been pretty helpful..
