Took a break from woodworking and turned my workshop into a studio to photograph recent items.

Secret project #2 reveal: a table made with 150 year old hickory floorboards and featuring hairpin legs. The customer will be quite delighted (all pun intended).

Tip of the day: when you need to hmm screw a lag bolt into wood, the secret from having a chip-free surface is to use a larger drill and countersink 1 or 2 millimeters.

My secret project #2 will contain 16 such "perfect holes".

More progress - applying clear coat or urethane. The photos are taken seconds after it was applied and it looks shinier than it would dry to.

Must do list #2 before the show: apply stain and finish to the secret project #2 (on all sides not just the visible ones).

Today is a bit of a milestone for me.

I have officially spent half my life in Canada. I first arrived at the Dorval airport (since renamed) in Montreal with a carry on and two suitcases - one of which opened but didn't spill. Then my journey continued to Halifax NS.

And from all the places I've lived in, Canada has also been the country where I've lived the longest.
