Shop Update for 9/29/16
A Veneer Hook, Flyswatter, and Air Filter Problems
Sometimes we make silly things in our shops. I often experiment with new techniques using little practice projects. Often I just need a break from a more involved project to make something small. But anytime I make something I aim to hone a skill or take a first step into a new one. And that is what is happening this week in my shop. I built a flyswatter, mainly as a joke, but then as a fun opportunity do some riving, drawknife work, fretwork, and veneer work. Oh yeah and I had a lot of fun making it!
Finally, I need some advice from y’all on what could be wrong with my air filter. I need to get it sorted out quickly as my shop definitely won’t pass a white glove test with all this fine dust building up on stuff…and the Queen is due for dinner soon!
Just a reminder, I will be giving away 2 Bad Axe saws and a bench hook set at the end of this month. Anyone who joins Apprenticeship at The Hand Tool School before October 1st (and any currently enrolled in the program) will be eligible to win one of the saws.
