Tenon Detritus

I posted the following photo from my happily-neglected Twitter account a while back and forgot about it:

I’d been busy making a stand out of some southern yellow pine and didn’t take too much time to clean off the bench between making each mortise-and-tenon joint. Perhaps there’s some sort of meaning here. But it could also be just a cluttered pile of cutoffs.

That project is essentially complete, but I’m not too sure. I didn’t make a top for it yet, but I might not need to. It’s just a tall stand for workshop-related stuff and is already in use.

I don’t know if I’ll ever write about that little mini-project. It’s pretty sloppy; I didn’t even bother to uniformly thickness or even mill all of the sides of the boards.

  1. Really glad you’re back! This site is one which I have always found inspiring. I’ve saved a few of your pages just in case, and glad I did. Just happened to click on a link not expecting any results, and there was something there. Looking forward to more from you. Welcome back.


    • Glad that there’s someone that actually remembers the old site! If you still have those pages saved, hang onto them, I might need them! I’m slowly trying to get around to restoring the old posts. I do have backups of many of them, but it’s not going too quickly. I’m sort of restarting the blog in a low-key manner, anyway.
