« Part 30: Blanks and time with my daughter Part 31 of 52 Weeks series Part 32: Some work around the office and what a bargain. »

and a lathe that is waiting for it’s new belts. I just posted my completed Photo Album Book Rack a few minutes ago. As I mentioned there in the post I had a lot of fun with this project and did some things I have been wanting to do. This is really my first official glue up of a panel I suppose.


As you can see I also put my Stanley #80 scraper handle to good use. I prepared the entire board before cutting it down in to the sections. This made it very easy for me to use my sander with 4 different grits of paper, now I know that sounds normal but this is one of the first projects I really took the time to sand up properly. I also put my woodburning stamp set to use, which worked pretty well.

Besides this project I also got another of the frames assembled for the wall organizers I have been working on, I am planning to try to finish them relatively soon. Have a few more parts to get together.

As I mentioned earlier in the week my lathe had an incident with a belt. New V-Link Belts are on the way and I should have that back together hopefully by the end of the week. Then it is on to pen making. I made myself a jig to cut blanks to the correct size, you know that quote “measure twice…” well I did and I still goofed. I will be making another one tomorrow. DUH!! :)

Well that will do it for today and this week.

Hope everyone got some shop time and gets more during the week.
