« Part 1: Start, stop, and start again...a project delayed Part 2 of Using up Leftovers series Part 3: Sunday, Busy Sunday.. »

Rearend was getting numb from setting all the time…decided to at least try a bit of shoptime…1 hour limit, or until I got too tired…
Pine 1×6s got cleaned up this end was too chewed up to save….cut it off square with a handsaw. Ash?

Well, 4 blanks of Ash, and two of pine….choose the better of the 4 Ash boards for a glue up..

Despite the knots, this will get glued up into a blank for a lid…

Set this aside to cure…small parts? 6 drawer front blanks..

And a few to make a couple dividers between the drawers..

..picked out the best of the longer blanks…

Add a strip down the middle…

And I have a pair of sides for the case. Glue, clamps and cauls..side 1..

And side #2..

Not too bad, since I had to clean off the tablesaw before anything got done..

And that was it for the first hour back in the shop….left foot was cramping up, right in the toes. Took a day or so off, before the next foray into sawdust land…

Stay tuned….

Humm ,.....I think bandit its time to consider electrifying a few of your hand tools and make your woodworking skills work for you rather than the other way around.
We all enjoy our WW that’s for sure but in all honesty I am of the belief that you are “overdoing just a little bit”
We didn’t live to this age to have our beloved pastime work against us.

Just an observation no medical qualifications to support it just a caring fellow wood worker saying his bit.
Take it or leave it for what its worth.

And BTW a bloody good effort as well mate!
