I don't often mention making Longworth chucks but the last two days has been a blast! I cut three sets yesterday, four this morning, and as soon as I got the final one boxed up today we got another order for one that I'll cut tomorrow. They're just kind of fun to cut and I guess what I like most about them is there's no glue and no finish.
It took exactly one hour today to cut two 12", one 14", and one 18" and then a little over an hour to sand and box them (four different boxes, going to four different states). Plaques, trophies, display cases, cutting boards, custom work and all those other things are fun, as well, but there's a lot of sanding, waiting on glue to dry, waiting on finishes to dry, etc.
Longworth chucks are something I can start and finish in a short timeframe and that's a nice departure. Plus I get to use a fair amount of the shop tools in making these - circular saw to break down the 5x5 BB, table saw, drill press, CNC, stationary 6x48 belt sander, drum sander, and ROS.
Cut today -
We're just grateful to have the orders and blessed to have the work to keep me busy in the shop and out of Sandy's hair!
