Projects

Once the green work has been set aside to dry, there are a variety of directions to turn in the workshop. Projects like furniture and boxes and dovetailed trays are made from dried lumber, which is planed and smoothed and joined using traditional hand-cut joints.

This part of woodworking creates a lot of shavings!

But this is also the time when I might use my foot-powered lathe to turn some bench legs…

…or when I might bore out some branch-boxes to hold pencils or utensils or seedlings…
