The second series is on Thomas Chippendale, and the furniture he produced.
Received a rather interesting email tonight from Toolstoday.com. They send out a regular email promoting their latest router bit, video, sawblade etc, (and I subscribe to it – makes a nice break from the mountain of work emails that come through!)
Tonight’s one will look rather familiar :)
(And yes, they did seek my permission to put the video on their YouTube channel – I was more than happy to allow it)
Despite all the preparations for the move, the already significant dismantling and degradation of shed function, I still managed to get out there for a bit of woodwork!
This was specifically because I needed to make some real progress on the latest set of articles for ManSpace magazine, which are due around about the same day as I am moving! Timing is an immaculate thing.
One of the articles this time (and there will be a few in the same series) is about making kid’s toys – and takes you through a series of 6 steps to produce it.
I further wanted to ensure as many people as possible could complete the project, so limited the number of tools to a maximum of 6 (and only used 3 for the current one), and tried to come up with a project that would only take 60 minutes or so to complete, and under $60 in materials.
I’m not going to tell you want the actual project was – you’ll just have to wait for the next edition to hit the shelves!
It took 60 minutes, $40, and 3 tools (and 6 steps), so I definitely covered the brief (and got to make a little bit of saw dust in the process).
Ok, ok, I’ll give you one cryptic hint. Dover.
Wonder if anyone will figure it out?
