Stop by and say Hi

This Saturday I'm going to be in the showroom of the Ottawa Lee Valley demonstrating the use of woodworking hand tools. Instead of making some random joints and progressively thinner boards I'm going to build a small shelving unit for my various drills that I use with my drill press.

I'm slowly replacing the not-so-elegant fir plywood shelves that I built years ago. This little shelf will have rabbets and stopped dados, and will be made from pine. The only prep I'm doing is flattening the boards and getting them to rough thickness.

Shavings from the initial flattening

So if you're around the Ottawa Lee Valley, stop by and say hello and maybe watch the shelves take shape.

In order to understand,  you must do. V
