Thursday, March 2
Work day begins: 7:00 AM We won’t be needing to fire up the heat stove this morning, it’s already 62 degrees outside, and another beautiful day is in the making. Yesterday I spent the day at our gallery, Treasures Of Appalachia, in Cosby where several of us got the place cleaned up, and opened for the 2006 season. This morning it’s back to woodworking as usual, and we’ll be completing the drawer installation. Lunch Time This morning we got the drawer boxes routed, sanded and installed. Everything fits quite well, nothing but minor adjustments were needed. Workshop closes: 5:30 PM This afternoon we got the drawer fronts made, routed and sanded, installed the knobs and mounted the fronts to the drawers. That pretty well completes construction. That means it’s time to ask for money – which is what we do when we’re ready to begin the finishing stage, especially in a piece that‘s to be stained. We’re coming down the home stretch now. This evening I will be writing up the daily article episode and posting that and the pictures, then doing some work on our new web site.
