The right work environment makes all the difference

I have been playing on the scroll saw this weekend, and realized my legs and back were aching after a short period of time. I hunted around for a chair/stool and had nothing of the right size, and really did not have a good ergonomic setup for lengthy projects. While out shopping today, I came across an unfinished 36in stool at Michaels crafts. This turned out to be the perfect height for having the saw on my work bench. This weekends projects were exercises in stack cutting and realizing the limitations of the stock I was using. Anyhow, the first project is a book rack for the top of the piano. I still have to cut the slats and base, but the ends are done (pine stock). The second project was a prototype for a penguin ornament. It didn't turn out like I wanted, cutting ovals is a pain in the ass. I might redesign the framing into a jagged style edge to mimic icebergs...the material I used was hardboard which didn't saw too well, but it's just a prototype...
