The workshop at the Woodworkers has been quiet over the holiday break which has given me the opportunity to play with some of the scraps of wood from the waste bin and to spend some time with my favourite machine, the bandsaw. I've been cutting out these little dolls house chairs and tables. They're not so difficult to cut out, what takes the time is the sanding and painting. There seems to be a surface I've missed every time I look at them. I enjoy using up scraps that would otherwise be chucked out but I've got to be very firm with myself as I tend to develop a stash that is far more than I can use. There does come a time when a scrap of wood really is only a bit of firewood no matter how many times I look at it. Duty calls and the Woodworkers Newsletter is waiting for my attention so I must be off. If I haven't said it before, I wish everyone out there in blogland a happy and healthy 2010. Bye for now until next time.
