Shop update #272 (1-18-23)

It pretty much rained all weekend so I didn’t work on the wishing well planter stand at all.  It worked out for the best because I received an order for 6 AOL plaques from our local Cub Scout Pack.

I stopped by Lowes and picked up 2 – 1x8x72 poplar boards and cut them down into 2 foot lengths.  (1×8 boards actually measure 3/4″ x 7 1/4″)

I then carved them on my CNC machine which took about 1 hour and 20 minutes each.  That took up most of Saturday and then Sunday morning.

We had a brief lull in the rain on Sunday afternoon so I was able to break out my router table and give them all a chamfer on the top edge.

I’m planning on making some kind of 17th century bible box in the near future so I played around with some carving ideas on the CNC as well.
