So I haven’t been able to blog much. Its been time to replace my computer so I got a new one and then went on vacation for two weeks (more coming on that). Now I’m back only to find that my new computer is malfunctioning and I have to send it back.
So, I’ll be a little light on the blogging front until my computer is returned. In the meantime, here’s sneak peek at a vacation pic. Since Chris Schwarz has been talking a lot about coffins, I thought I’d join in with my own contribution.

Buy 3 dozen and you get a coffin. Typical Portland humor.

I love being in my workshop in the morning. I have an east facing window up high and the morning sunlight streams through it on a a nice day until about 10 am. Having sunshine beaming in my window and the doors open to let in the cool morning breezes make for a wonderful atmosphere in the shop.
Such was the case for my Saturday morning work on the doors. Here are a few shots of my most enjoyable morning.

Well, now that I figured out my logo (thanks again Tom!), I better go do some woodworking. So today, I fit the final fronts to the drawers and added oil rubbed bronze handles so I could get rid of the ugly blue tape.

Mr. Buhl put this together for me and I love it!
Here’s a link to his woodworking blog.
Here’s the latest mock up. Still trying to decide if I like it better. Thoughts?
For many of my project I use Bursso hinges/hardware. Its quality stuff that I got turned on to by Marc at the The Wood Whisperer. The hardward is substanical quality brass and they even include the proper size steel screws to pre-thread your brass screw holes.
A couple weeks ago they sent out a call for project photos and I sent in a few of mine. In response Brusso did a really nice blog post on the information that I sent them and to boot, they sent me a really nice mug!
Check out their stuff if you haven’t already.
PS. If anyone can give me a hint at how to get rid of the ugly brown border around my pics, lemme know. Geez!
I’m updating my logo from my hand drawn logo to a logo done by a graphic designer. What ya think? Better? Is it easy to tell tha the tool in the picutue is a rasp?
