momentum


 My crazy, hectic schedule has left little time for the shop
but I manage, nonetheless, to find a few moments here and there


I've discovered that my new travisher makes a great scrub plane for curved surfaces
with it I can hog away material at a phenomenal rate 


this walnut splinters and tears out so fast when paring
I have to be very careful as these joints will be highly visible


tenons; not so much
but it is exciting to split the pencil line on such a small piece!


I'll keep the crest rail solid till after glue-up then finish cutting the hole when there's less chance for failure



and just for giggles, I put together this little video to hone (start learning) the process of video shooting and editing with my new GoPro HD
enjoy:)

  1. Looking good Carl. Love the vid too. Is that Rodrigo y Gabriela rockin' in in the background? If so, it's an even better post. I gotta make my way over to the East side again.

    1. Thanks Shawn!
      I'm very pleased with the results so far, and I'm gearing up for a full shoot in the sand in November, so I am trying to get the hang of the camera. I spared you all the torture of the head mounted POV films.
      And yes R&G seemed perfectly appropriate:)
