Lots of woodowrking

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
Son-in-law, woodworker in training, visited with the primary objective of completing a modestly complicated book shelf for my daughter's kitchen. (forgot to take a picture) He did most all of the work including the critical learning to meticulously sand, stain and apply varnish. The oak was from an exceptional log I had sawed in 1973. The shelf unit left Sunday AM lacking only one coat of varnish.

In addition I took him through dovetailing the front half of a half blind drawer, and we refurbished a #4 plane for his future use. He has good hands and the patience of Job. He can be a good woodworker.

Teaching is harder than doing. I'm wore out.
