Well it seems the heat wave we’ve been having here in Ontario is finally ending and temperatures are going back to the normal seasonal range. Winter to summer is starting to feel like the norm around here. I took this picture in the back yard yesterday while my daughter, Piper and I had our lunch outside. Spring has definitely sprung! To be honest, we’ve already had smog warnings here in the down town area. Gotta love this city living eh? It makes me want to get to the Coast that much sooner.
Yesterday in my backyard.
I meant to post this earlier but the weeks are flying by-
For Ontario readers, you have a few opportunities to get your hands on some of your favorite hand tools-
First is the Lee Valley Tools, in Store Hand Saw Event taking place today and tomorrow. 23rd and 24th. It actually started yesterday but as mentioned, I’m late in posting~sorry.
The second is the Lie Nielsen Hand Tool Event on March 30-31. This time around they’ll be in Stouffville, Ontario at Century Mill Lumber. Another great opportunity to get some of those tools you’ve been thinking about purchasing and trying them out beforehand.
Around the web, today is the day when Tools for Working Wood will be launching a new/old magazine.Work Magazine – An Illustrated Magazine of Practice and Theory was originally published on March 23,  1889. To celebrate the anniversary, Joel at TFWW is making these classic prints available online. I’m looking forward to checking it out and if you’d like to do the same go here to download.
Well, that’s the news for this Friday, March 23 and I’m off to the wood shop to make some shavings. Cheers!
