Sleep when I'm....

How I end up here again and again is amazing. Some kind of pattern. Or unfortunate habit. Time to get jiggy with it!

Squaring up the new homemade tenoning jig.

Loads to get done today and then music night at 7:30. Yay! What to do first? I'm at a point where details come into play and it seems a little overwhelming. But I have to press on. Finishing must begin tomorrow! It's tricky because there are several parts to each bench. a) the bench b) the cubbie w/sliding door and c) a pair of racks. I think I'll start by finishing the benches! One is still missing legs. Here we go:

  • glue up last legs
  • sand bench parts, dry fit legs
  • trim out cubbies
  • fit doors to cubbies
  • arrange upstairs as staining, sealing station for cubbies and racks
  • go get last ash and peruvian walnut at MacBeaths
  • mill parts for racks
  • break edges, sand rack parts
  • tape off and stain rack parts
  • stain benches
  • stain cubbies
My signature big finger joint design. Ash is so heavy, but pretty.

Wow. Saturday will be all about sealing. I think I can make it. I know I can. Back at the cabin Monday night. I am dreaming about waking up there, watching the sun rise, making some bread for my classes, yoga and my first run in 2 1/2 weeks. Ankle feels ready for a little run. 

Ash on the LT and sugar pine on the RT. Going to make some 3-legged benches out of the pine with lathe turned cherry legs. Think I have just enough!
