This February was about normal, temperature wise, with not that much snow, and a bit of ice.
We had quite a spell of below freezing weather, but it never went below zero° F. Several small storms, but nothing noteworthy.
The sun is definitely up earlier, and the days are getting longer. At the market we got our first batch of daffodils, although outside here there is no indication of anything poking through the snow yet.
I had a few small projects in the shop. However, most of the month was devoted to a 9-drawer chest, the same size as my 15-drawer chest. It had fewer, but bigger drawers as requested by the customer.
It has the usual construction, of dovetailed top, telescoping web frames, frame and panel back, and grain that wraps around the entire piece. Nice to build a piece that’s slightly different from the usual.
Looking forward to March, the schedule is full well into next summer and fall. At this time I am no longer taking any orders.
