So obviously I haven’t kept up with my thing-a-day blog posts. I’ve still been doing some things but not every day, and all those knitting days during the weeks were disenchanting. I’ve decided to cover everything in one big wrap up post for the month.
I “finished” the secret cabinet project. The cabinet is an “emergency documentation box” for Pumping Station: One. It’s mounted near the soon to be new home for Electric Avenue in a fairly prominent place and contains a flip video camera graciously donated by Anne Petersen. Now there’s no excuse to not have video of the culmination of your awesome project. This camera really couldn’t be any easier to use, so I hope this box helps out the space. I said it’s “finished” because I really just got tired of working on it and moved on. There should be some lettering on the window but I’ll add it later.
I implemented the scary sharp tool sharpening system and sharpened a chisel and a hand plane. I sharpened them down to 1000 grit sandpaper and I intended to go down to 2000 but after seeing how amazing the results are with 1000 I don’t think it’s necessary.
I produced a video of a Sun Jar for Element14. They approached PS:One a while back to send someone and record some of our projects and they got a good response from the video, so they asked for more. I hope it’s the first of a long series.
I and several other members built three workbenches for the new shop in Pumping Station: One. It’s always fun to do those kind of large scale builds, but we could certainly use more tools so more people can work at once.
I still have plenty more projects on my list of stuff I could do this month and a few more cool things have popped up, so keep an eye out for weekend projects in March!
