Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – Dec 8 2014

This week I finished turning the epoxy wire bowl.  It turned out pretty well.  There are some imperfections in it but I wasn’t expecting it to be perfect.  This was more of an experiment for me.  Speaking of experiments, I also made a couple of pocket notebooks.  I wanted to try to make one with a wood cover.  The veneer I made was a bit too thick to be folded without cracking but I learned that wetting down the wood first made it bend a bit easier.  On the upper case of the secretary, I got all the dividers installed but I still have to profile the side ones.  Over the weekend I spent a day in the woods gathering logs to be turned into lumber.  I had a great time as always and we were able to pull about 20 logs out of the woods.
