Just having some coffee here and thinking on a few things. One is a timer. I have a timer the kitchen type. I have found uses in the workshop for it such as timing glue drying when using a fast drying glue. Titebond makes one that is pretty good. What other uses might a timer be good for in the garage?
I’ve been thinking about an outlet for free wood. I have posted on the local Craigslist in the wanted section for free piano’s. I had two responses. I am picking one up today. The other I am picking up this Thursday. I may try to get it tomorrow. It is a 1911 year model. The one I am picking up today I have no idea what year or make it is. The people say all they need is tuning. I may try to resale them in the local paper after I get them tuned and use the money for wood. My first thought however is to take them apart for the wood and other useful parts that I may be able to use for wood woorking projects. Your thoughts on this would be nice to have. I may keep one if we can find a place in the house for it. I use to love to play on mom’s.
I also recieved some emails from Craigslist when I posted alot of items for sale or trade for wood working tools and wood. I have several responses about trees that have been cut down but not yet cut up. I am thinking of getting some of these and rough cut them with the chainsaws and plane them out. If I do this should I first let them dry after the rough cut or go ahead and plane them? I would let them sit for 90 days at least if I need to before I plane then.
