Ok, so I have been out of the shop for over a week now. Of all things, I caught a cold this time of the year. The aches, pains, coughing, etc have made it impossible and dangerous to work in the shop. So, I have sat around all day watching dvd’s and playing video games. I was not even well enough to read the Lumberjocks web site. I know I have missed much, but will be catching up in the next few weeks. While still under the weather, I will try a few hours in the shop today.

Just before I got sick, I decided on a Thorsen Table design, and began cutting the wood. I was working on the table top, when the headaches and sinus pain became too much. Well, it is time to start tackling the table again. I was glad to have settled on a design, and happy that the initial cutting went so well. The tricky parts will begin soon enough.

Unlike Obi, I did not buy a hunnerd dollar board. I have some thick oak stock for the legs on hand. I did have to buy one oak board for the top, aprons, stretchers, etc. But, I think this will work out nicely. While I hope to sell it, and make money for more projects, I can also use it myself.

So, here is to success in the shop.

-- Bill, Turlock California,

Good luck, Bill. I don’t think I’ve heard anyone else metion oak for this project. Is it safe to assume you’re talking about red oak? I hope you get to feeling better soon.

I’m glad that you are feeling better. My whole family has been fighting a virus. Let me get this right…you can watchDVD’s and play video games, but couldn’t read LumberJocks! Come on now, Bill.

Take care of yourself!

and looking at the title of the post I might want to take a guess at what type of movies he was watching!

Thank you all for the comments. Yes OS, it is true. I find sometimes the eye strain of looking at the computer monitor to be too much. Luckily, the TV sits much further away so it is easier on the eyes.

Well, I did not make it to the shop after all on Thursday, but will return in the next few days. I hope everyone else remains well too.
