baby steps

Preoccupied as I've been I have not failed to notice the change of season
this was the second never-ending snow belt winter in a row
and those little snowdrops were two days from opening when the white stuff finally receded

I earn but a scant few minutes each week to devote to my bench
most of that time was jointing close enough that a couple passes could cinch up the surfaces

a few warm days and I managed to glue up four more sticks

the ends need a tongue

cut, chop, plane

seriously, that's all the instruction you need

then again there's a whole new manual I'm working on now


  1. Congrats! Your finest work to date :)

  2. Wahoo! I was wondering why you broke the single word title streak. Congrats on being a dad. You've probably already realized this but I've found nothing to be more rewarding than being a dad. I'm truly happy for you Carl.
