Spring is finally here, the daffodils tell me so. So do the forsythia and early azalea, but as they are not period, we won't mention them here. Time to cut the pollard tree. An added bonus is a copious amount if sticks to use in the garden.

Before, after, and sticks

New table saw

Here is the new (to me) table saw, Delta 10" contractors saw. First purchased by my uncle, then from him to my father, and then to me. There's a bunch of it that isn't set up in my shop due to the tight quarters.

All set up and ready to trim the feet for the list posts

Posts for the fighting listfields

So there have been a number of setbacks which have seemed rather daunting. But there has been a great deal of progress made. All the posts are to size, and the feet are about 3/4 done.

Hutch - nearing completion

So the hutch is mostly assembled. Very little glue used, as most of the joins are across grain. All that remains is the lid. At 15.5 inches wide, it will take more than an ordinary plank. As the pin hinges aren't really working right, I may tack on a piece of plywood first, to see if it will work, rather than risk ruining a good board of that width.
