And here are my woodworking projects of 2018:
A chair
A table
A stool
And some little photos holders I made in between projects.

What should my 2019 hobby be?

Woodworking Workshop Wednesday Finale

Tada…Here’s the final masterpiece and just like the chair it was signed by all involved:  GuangJun, owner of Tombalek, John the prime teacher (there was also Nic but it was his day off when I finished so didn’t get to sign it!) & Cheong master of finishing touches.  They all helped me out one way or another during the 4 classes/weeks (+ 2 extras).

The “Merci” t-shirt is for continuity with the end of Chairmaking photo:

Woodworking Workshop Wednesday.

The end of the tunnel…. a long long tunnel where you have to sand with 40 Grit then 80, then 120. You might think that at 240 grit it’s baby skin soft then you do a last pass at 400 and then you realized how wrong you were thinking it was smooth at 240.

You are all proud of yourself but see a tiny imperfection and you know because you’ve been through it with your chair making that you’d better address it right away or it will bug you each time you see it. Back to 120 grit, 240 grit, and 400 grit.

Big reveal next week 😉

Apparently, I’m not perfect 😜

There were some minor gaps (barely noticeable by the common man but highly unthinkable for the craftsman/teacher of the class) that needed to be filled.
All I was thinking was oh no, more sanding will need to be done. 🙄

When you think you are done but the teacher tells you you’ve got a ways to go… time 4 (legs!).
You feel a little depleted so you rearrange the tools, take a cute picture and you are ready to go back to it 😉

NB: I’m going to take a 2-week Woodworking Workshop Wednesday posting break during Christmas vacation. I’ll be back with them in January with the final product and another little surprise… I cannot be stopped!!

It’s a miracle.
Every piece fits nicely together… with a little help from the mallet and some clamps 😉

Travish, polish, travish, polish… repeating until you don’t feel your arms anymore.
Remind yourself several time you actually sign up for this on your own will 😉
