Downtime?

I like to stay busy...as the worst thing about being an "Old Retired Guy"  is BOREDOM.     For some reason, I just can't sit around, doing nothing.   I usually tell others that this Hobby keeps me out of the Taverns.  

Have a bunch of Oak "scraps" on the bench right now....trying to "plan" a project around those.
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

Oak scraps can be made into fancy Oak boxes....

The Boss has decided a new end table would be nice....as the old, pallet wood Oak table has seen better days...can't turn any legs, now a days....no lathe.   Tapered legs it will be....drawer?....maybe a bottom shelf?   Maybe  both?    Oak?   Or, Ash?  

When the lumber gets here, we'll see what can be built.   Until then..box builder?

Will start a separate "Build Thread" later today, but.....two panels have been glued up.    Will be cutting two end panels to match.   have a LOT of grooves to mill into some Oak to make the frame parts.....not only to house the raised panels....some need a groove to house the box's bottom panel.    First, need to remove the clamps from the two glue ups...

Stay tuned.....for "Just Another Box" thread... Cool
