Workshop getting closer.  Added some more lighting.  Finished storage for most of my tools.  I need to find the doors in the basement and put them back on. Working on some wood racks in the other room, which is stacked with stuff, as are my cabinets.  Then I can get down to working on something other than the shop.

Xmas gifts

Last minute Xmas stuff today…

Turned a rough pencil holder/thingy for my grandfather.  I think its locust.  Found it when I cut an old apple tree earlier this year.  It has some weird anomalies where the branches met the trunk.  Seems like there were a bunch of similar downed trees in that area.  This piece doesn’t have a noticeable anomaly, I just used a plain section.  Turned the top and bottom.  Wire brushed and sealed the rough part.  Drying overnight.  Just in time!  I made a piece from an abnormal section, which I’ll post later.  Its a gift for someone who looks at my tumblr page often.

Also roasted 6 batches of coffee on the stove top as last minute presents.  That’s enough to make me seriously consider starting my roaster build.

And I had time to work on a secondary bench for my new shop.  I’ll post a few pics of that later…

Happy holidays if you like that kind of thing!
