Leftover photos: A lousy Valentine’s Day gift & antique miter box

Posted By on February 18, 2020

Here’s a Twofer Tuesday archive from a couple weekend photos on my phone:


First, I tried to use Brenda’s grandfather’s handmade, and well worn, antique miter box to cut a couple pieces of trim .. but ended up using my powered Hitachi sliding miter saw to clean up the cut instead (I did use his chisels to clean up a couple dovetails rabbet and dadoes though).

Second, was a questionable ‘non-romantic’ Valentine’s Day gift that I gave to Brenda: It was a magnetic NatoMounts set-up in her “new to her” 2010 Acura RDX. No doubt it will be appreciated as much as I like mine, but it is probably not the kind of gift husbands should be giving their wives on Valentine’s Day
