« Part 183: Which is Better? Part 184 of Extremely Average series Part 185: My Decision »

Hello All,

I had a great 4th of July. I did some woodworking, at some hot dogs, and then did some more woodworking. I have made it past the point where I goofed up the last attempt at making a tiny walnut box. This was exciting for me. I am on to the lid. There is still one major opportunity to screw this attempt up, but I am not going to worry about that right now, I am going to revel in my tiny victory.

Happy Birthday USA


p.s. Thanks for all the helpful comments from yesterday.

-- Brian Meeks,

I am glad you enjoyed you Independence today with the grace of god and a few heroes may The U.S. stay within the founding principals.

Your wee box is turning out quite nicely! I admire you and your mitre skillz. I’m still working on that one…. it’s annoying how difficult they can be, eh?

It is difficult…and you are right…annoying! It is a bit of a rush when it works though, which makes it worth the effort.
