(aka: an embarrassing series of photographs)
If you’ve read my last post, you’ll know I just finished this awesome book.
With the turn of the final page, it occurred to me that I’m about as far away from formal training in woodworking as I could possibly get. In school, I never took shop (And yes, I kick myself everyday. Twice.) Haven’t done much more than your average YouTube junkie to be honest.
I watch a lot of The Woodwright’s Shop. Sometimes I even take notes.
Yesterday I learned about this awesome class being offered by the author of the above mentioned awesome book. Would that it didn’t have to fall on my anniversary weekend, otherwise I’d be arguing tooth and claw with my wife (read: begging and pleading) to attend that class. Alas, not this time. But there’ll be others.
In the meantime, practice makes perfect, right?
Well, yeah. I’m sure it does, eventually. Here’s a set of my nascent efforts at dovetailing. I figure I’ll do at least one per day, as often as time allows. Laugh with me, please, not at me. Or just laugh. I’m doing my best not to cry.
