A rainy/icy nasty day , but I did get some quality time in out in The Annex today . I spent some time today working on one pattern and almostcompleting a second for parts to the Gingery shaper I'm building . If all goes well I'll have the sides and front cast by midweek (got beehives in process too , and they take priority) and machined by the end . I think the ram is next in the build sequence . And I've got a big pile of salvaged lumber to use , all of it seasoned at least 20-30 years . I had forgotten how much I used to enjoy woodwork - before it became my livelihood .
