I need a better way to store my kitchen knives. I've seen magnetic holders for sale everywhere, but wanted to make it myself. They are simple enough to make. This is more of an artsy-craftsy sort of thing just to get my hands working again, nothing special. However, if you spend any amount of time in the kitchen (as I do) then it is very hand. Plus, instead of saying, "I bought that at Ikea (or wherever)," you get to say that you made it yourself.
...riding 30+ miles in the rain with no visor on your helmet and cutting dovetails in Aspen. Both of which I did this weekend. None of my chisels are set up to cut softwood, but I try anyway. I just wanted to knock out a little bit of practice. I also did a joint in soft maple. Getting better (especially when you consider I haven't done anything for months!)

Hi, all. Between doing a bunch of wiring in my house and rebuilding my chopper, there hasn't been much time for woodworking in quite some time. My other major issue was the slow death of my computer. At six and a half years old, I finally replaced it last week (not that I could really afford to, but it had to be done). I've got some ideas brewing, and hope to be back into some projects soon...now that I have some free time again, and I no longer need a seeing eye dog for the internet. See y'all soon!
