My boy band

I have lunch with them every week when I’m at my woodworking workshop.

They always ask me if I’m having lunch with them well it’s actually more like an affirmation than a question. They are used to it by now.

It’s not like we talk or anything but…

It’s a funny sight really: me, the white TaiTai, with 4 to 6 local guys, seating around the table among all the local workers in this hawker center in an industrial site. The food stall owners are used to it by now…. I disappear for a few months than show up again.

I wished I could take a picture of us eating.

We used to go chop our own Christmas tree (at a Christmas tree farm of course!) when we lived in Norway…. this year somebody cut a tree and I made the Christmas tree with the wood.

Wednesday Woodworking Workshop – Week 8

When the teacher tells you to choose a non-pattern fabric you should listen…. because teacher knows best.

Matching the pattern at the seam was not my favorite thing to do during this woodworking workshop. Well at least now travisher is not my number 1 least favorite thing to do 😉

Wednesday Woodworking Workshop – Week 7

Who would have thought I would be sewing at a woodworking workshop?

Wednesday Woodworking Workshop – Week 6

After finding out everything that was not perfect so a few more round of sanding, it’s finally time for the oiling.

Such a different process than my previous workshop as this was when I would take my creation (masterpiece?) home. This time I’m only about 80% done. Next is the sewing.

Wednesday Woodworking Workshop – Week 5

Let’s the sanding begin

40…80…120…240…400 paper grade. A few rounds of each and then when you realize you didn’t do it well enough you have to start over.

Repeating the mantra “I Love Woodworking” works well in that situation 😉

Wednesday Woodworking Workshop – Week 4

“Arrondir les angles” – To smooth things out/over.

This is usually when I question myself for signing up with woodwork classes…. it usually coincides with the wood rasp and “disagreeing” with the teacher about how round the angles should be, but at the end we smooth things out 😉
