Door making and my favorite time in the work shop

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.

Signing my work and making grooves – Bedside table

I used a Paul Seller’s work holding method and a Rockler clamp to hold the board while I plowed the groove.  I was pretty happy with how well it worked.  I clamped the edges of the piece in the clamp and then clamped the clamp in my vise.
