Practice Makes A Mess

I know the blog has suffered in the posting department lately.  The problem is actually one of excess--I have too much stuff to say!

Highland woodworking has picked up some things I wrote which can be found here:  one, two, and three.  I'll continue to offer them stuff which they may or may not accept.   I spend a lot more time writing when Highland accepts something because this is an informal blog, and they have a real live periodical that deserves professional attention.

I have a number of projects in the pipeline.  I find that every 14-18 months a log jam happens as a bunch of things get started while waiting for parts, tools, or time on other projects.  Right now I'm at another one those log jams.

There are several book reviews partially completed, including one for Christopher Schwarz's Campaign Furniture.  There are also furniture projects waiting my attention including a couch table, book case, campaign table, light box movie poster display, another Dutch tool chest, and some smaller things.

Tonight was a school night as I try to teach myself some basic leather working.  Here is my first outing:

Someday I hope to have a homemade chisel roll.  As you can see, I need some more practice cow.
