Woodworking in The Berenstain Bears

I’ve been workshop free in Philadelphia at my in-laws’ house so no work has been happening. ¬†Instead I decided to post some images from the Berenstain Bears’ New Baby in which papa bear does some green woodworking to make small bear a new bed.

I’ve been reading this book to my son for months and this scene still bothers me, in particular the weird plane in Papa Bear’s tool box.

Things are a bit more reasonable during the actual construction; note the stump and log work holding and another weird plane.

All for now, hopefully the new year will start with an assembled table top.

Back at it

Between travel for work, thanksgiving travel, and one of my vices taking hold (Fallout 4 was released for Xbox One) little progress has been made on the table recently.  Today I managed to mill the remaining boards for the top which I will hopefully glue up tomorrow.  
Aparently I am starting. To get the hang of flattening boards because there was a lot less twist in these than the previous three.
