« Part 1: Kind of a mixed day Part 2 of Shop journal series Part 3: Pretty exciting little thing »

The clock is part of my work for the Paul Sellers online class. The marking gauge is for long grain work to lay out rip cuts. No, I really did not need another gauge , but I wanted to make it. It is Ziracote and curly maple.

To stop any smart alec remarks, no, I really did not work up a huge sweat. The deodorant tube is full of beeswax.

Ever have a day like this?

Hope you get a little time to work wood today. Thanks for stopping by my shop. May the Lord keep you safe today.

Yes, Ron I have had more days like that than I care to admit, good one! I like the clock and and the gauge. Peter Sellers is one of my woodworking heroes. Enjoy your classes.

The clock came out great. We need a close up of the gauge but it looks nice from here.

By the way I really like your tool wall. We need a shop tour!
