Around the Woodshop

After the Witching Hour

Well another October came and went without so much as a pandemic -my kids and I lurked about seven blocks on Halloween before they started to burn out. Three steps away from a flu bug we called it a night. A crisp Autumn wind was blowing and the leaves seemed to keep time as they danced around our feet.
The wood shop feels like an empty canvass without the mass of the Oak Door present. I've started drawing up some plans for my next project. A Dedicated Sharpening Bench.
The vintage, 'chic-ness' of the side table I grabbed off the street last year on 'yard waste removal day' has finally outstayed it's welcome. I was happy to have it visit these past 14 months or so but it's time for something a little more permanent. I'll let you know when I get started on it- the project is being 'sponsored' by Fine So it'll be featured over there if you're interested.
Speaking of sites my new site is coming along- I'll keep you posted when it's done...the blog area is up although the comments aren't yet working...another week and things should be all up and running.
Stay tuned...


  1. Tom are you going to share some pictures of the finished door? I have followed it from start to finish. I enjoy your blog. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. John

  2. I will indeed as soon as I get some more...

  4. Hey Tom, your new website, UnpluggedWoodshop, is looking great! Cool stuff there. I might "borrow" a few tool storage ideas from your tool cabinet. ; )
