Yeah as long as you don’t step on it !

Good to see schools are actually teaching practical skills …what was it last year? Clocks I remember.

Poor year 12 guys off into the world never to post here ever again!

Overall they look good except the sideways ones and duplicated posts!

Hey I could drop off a few pieces of this Bunya pine and leave them at you back door while your away over Christmas!
No worry about Bushfires then, when you return you house will be gone anyway!!

Merry Christmas Pete and Crew!! hey how is the little boy going?

Thanks Rob, The bushfires are way north of us though the smoke has been awful for a bloke with lung issues.
Christmas will be quiet at home with the “crew”.
The little bloke will be two in early January and he’s doing great!
We’re off to NZ straight after Christmas for holiday to celebrate our 40th year of wedded bliss, pretty special.
If the timber is “bug free”, yes please sir, if you’re up the hill as family will be here.
Rob, you drive safe and have a top Christmas with family & friends.
And my you, me and the rest of the country have a MUDDY NEW YEAR….

Rob,
Can you actually call it woodworking if all you do is pile up boards?
Hope you have a wonderful Chrstmas!
I’ll be working on my foundation at the store for Christmas while Mama is off to visit my sister until after new years day. It will be nice to get that finished and a couple of weeks peace and quiet will be my present to myself.
Enlighten us! How do you celebrate the holiday down-under?

Love the choice of timber… especially the contrasting species. Appreciate that no dovetails, splines or veneers were harmed and the CNC left in mothballs. Encouraging that you did not screw it up and the dowels left to mature in the forest. Lack of sanding preserves our pristine beaches and the absence of glue permits more horses to race and appease the happy addicted gamblers. A bonus to hear that the only pocket holes are in your jocks.

And to think all this was done on grass… none of this fancy meth’ crap!

Ah back to the good old teaching of woodworking skill by the master craftsman of the past.

Could only be capped off by the finish being typed by a native of Finland.

Well Rob this is wood and it did take some work to put them together, so I guess this is legitimate woodworking. Congratulations on being the first minimalist woodworker!

Well Rob, I for one think it is a fantastic woodworking endeavor. as far as DT3, I can’t help with that BUT I will offer my own personal DN1 lable. Not quite the DT3 but you earned this one.

btw – DN1 = do nothing 1

Happy Holidays !!

Some well deserved replies

Crowie:- Read the above banter if your a Crowie follower otherwise thanks for the input Pete.

Mikeacg:- wood working? yep my oath! reached up and bent down three times that’s all my annual exercise done in one project. Have fun in your new shop and I/we will all eagerly await some update pictures. Foundations that sounds like concrete work? Celebrate Christmas well we/I celebrate Christmas by acting the fool and posting my step stool creations, otherwise the normal tree presents and along with family and friends visiting along with excessive eating drinking and general merry making.

LBD:- Well summed up LBD its my enviromentally friendly step stool contribution sadly will end up as land fill but I saved heaps of other energy in the build, that hopefully will off set and other emissions …wait how about I shut my mouth.

anthm27:- hey 100 % correct on the species of timber! come to think you might want to consider a career as a carpenter! Thank you.

SrefanG:- Minimalist wood worker ? well that’s blowing my horn a bit excessive isn’t it Mike. But thanks for the recognition anyway Merry Christmas …where the real reindeer’s live!!

recycle1943:- DN1 hey now you have motivated me. ... wait next will be segmented bowl or lamp shade
Merry Christmas too!

pottz:- Thanks Larry I didn’t take much thought it sorta just came to me as I walked past mumbling about bogus blogs and the associated PMs from earlier. Merry Christmas.

torus:- thanks I actually poured some beer on the wood and tried to teach the bugs how to swim under the influence so in its former life it was a bug lap pool! ha ha tee tee …...anyway Merry Christmas!!

HokieKen:- hey you found my sander well done!! .... you are real LJ buddy!!..........wait a minute there is something different with the picture?......Oh yes I got it …......thats not my tool box!

So what it all about ...well picture this:-
Its Friday afternoon, the traditional end to the working week, (for those who actually work that is) a fridge with some Carlton Cold beers in it, then combined with being able to remember the password on my PC all at once, this sorta stuff just happens!

Hoki is a generous little man, however, I also have found a replacement sander… though it may not be as good as it is bottom shelf,

damn rc, look at the circle… the one in red....
