Pictures from the wood shop

Tonight I’ve decided to do two posts.  First here are some pictures of recent wood working projects I’ve completed.  I’ll post an essay later on – got to do a bit more editing on that one.

This week I’ve been well enough to complete this spaceship puzzle I’ve been cutting on the scroll saw.  It’s a 3D puzzle and you’ll see the little space people who are part of the ship.

The completed spaceship

There are four of these little space people.

And this one Heather and I finished a couple of weeks ago.  It’s a sheep knitting caddy.  I cut the parts on the scroll saw and Heather painted it.

The next project to finish in the workshop is the serving trays I started a few months ago.  Today I finally got the table saw set up right so I could trim the side rails to the right size.  Now that I can lift a little more I hope to get the router table setup this week so I can cut the needed rabbets.  I’ll post project pictures later in the week.

      Thanks – I did this puzzle mostly because my 8 year-old grandson saw this in one of my scroll saw magazines and said it would be too hard to do. Well, I showed him what grandpa can do. 😉

      I didn’t keep an exact time but it was something like 15 hours. There are 44 pieces and the wood ins 3/4″ thick cherry. I went through at least 12 scroll saw blades.

      The little people are my favorite part of this puzzle. Yes I can put it together. Took me about an hour to get it set up on the launch pad. 🙂
