This is a pic of one of the end grain cutting boards my student made from a recent woodworking class. It turned out really nice! Now I think she has caught the woodworking bug. :-)

I have dissolved my furniturebykevin website! I did not see enough activity on there to justify keeping the site alive. I need to take a course on website programming. I have not been that busy in the shop it seems but I have got a lot accomplished in the shop. I sold the 4 oak dining chairs, the 6 walnut dining chairs, got a great deal and acquired some rustic barn board. I have been building the 30" jointer plane and took my first shavings with it! I need to fine tune the aesthetics and add the handle to the plane yet. I was given another vintage hand plane and some other vintage tools which I will add to the collection. So I am hoping to put more content on here more often seeing how I removed my website.

Picked up this antique rocking chair today. I will repair, refinish and give some love to this chair. After that this chair will be for sale.
Some bread, cheese and cutting boards ready to be glued up
I cooked up some mineral oil and beeswax to use as the finish for the boards

Some end grain cutting boards underway...
The oak is ready for the deacons bench.
Still have not decided on a design for the hall tree. I was also reminded that I still owe my wife a jewelry box too. :-)
Darryl, Mike and I will be embarking on building some wooden jointer planes starting this week as well.

New smoothing plane
New fore plane
Darryl sent me the pics of these that he made for me. Can not wait to start making shavings with these. Darryl Gent is a fellow member of the Niagara Woodworking Club and is an extremely talented woodworker who started making hand planes.
