Default Two small jobs.

Hi, colleagues.

My to do list projects is big and continuously growing but there are some small home repairs that have been calling my attention.

Do you remember my twisted wooden frame? Well, you sent to me a lot of suggestions and I took none. I just bought a piece of 3mm clear plexiglass and put two Sabrina´s pictures.

There were three clay pottery that my wife used to use for some spices but, for some strange reason they lost their caps so I took some wooden drill cores I have and made two wooden caps for the pots. One is missing.

Vey nice tops Alexis. I can see that one rail that bent was very close to a knot.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I hate to show my ignorance, but what's "Onoto" (I'm assuming it's Spanish?)

Brilliant idea for "upcycling" Alexis!

Little things count for the Mrs. I am a fussy frame maker and I'm finding that twists are the bain of the process. I'm coming to see that to make "perfect" frames, you have to mill you own material from jointed and planed, oversize stock. Time to break out the molding bits. But being fussy is fun for me. Do I need my head examined? I expect an answer from @Stick486

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
