I know I haven’t been posting alot of projects lately, that is because I have been volunteering at a company called The Geek Group that LJ’er Tskvinna is working with. I have been trying to denail and mill 12- 1/2 tons of maple flooring so they can sell it to help fund their endeavors. I am slowly getting back into the shop. I have 1 customer order for a cutting board that I need to busy on. I am also still (at this time) unemployed. I have 3 offers on the table. Just waiting for one of them to pop. I am still trying to get the eagle head mounted. Will post that one soon. So hopefully more to come soon.

You gotta quit volunteering and work for money buddy, that’s the way it’s supposed to work, in my world anyway. Although I did volunteer at a rehab facility as part of my practicum in college. But that worked out, they hired me, as the boss said, they had to, I just wouldn’t go away. LOL mike

I know I am hoping to get hired by them. I am also keeping my eyes out for another job.

12 and a 1/2 tons of flooring? That’s a lot of nails to pull. Charge a penny a nail . LOL
