3.14.15

I’m not a math geek by any stretch of the imagination but there are certain numerical things that tickle my fancy such as when dates line up with mathematical theories. Today the date, as written in the US style of month then day, represent the first 5 digits of pi, the number that goes on into infinity.

Ed uses pi (3.1415…) often in woodworking. For the past couple of weeks he’s been focused on building another Walking Wheel. When he gets hot on the scent of a new project, stand back. Don’t impede progress.

Various wheel parts in different stages of being worked on, waiting for final shaping and adjustments.

Ed’s seventh walking wheel is made with local walnut with an ash wheel rim. He’d like to have it finished by the end of next week so is devoting most of his time to it these days. As a result the next group of spindles posted to the store won’t be until later next week, possibly Wednesday or Thursday.
