33 yrs old. 1 of 4 sons, 1 of 5 kids, electrician for 14 yrs, bass player 16 yrs or so, father of a 2.5yr old and a 1 yr old, my favorite season of the year is football, momma cooks every Wednesday and Sunday, Dad sometimes in between, and I just effing like building stuff. Mainly out of wood. Usually not by myself if I can help it. And my wife usually hates it. But she says it's better than me playing call of duty till 4am. The tramp.
PS cooking with oak or pecan over a fire pit could probably make a turd taste better. But shrimp and boudin are usually better to eat.
Fried fish and étouffée. Doesn't get any better than that. Unless it's Saturday night in Death Valley.
Chance of rain?
And I really hate Alabama football.
I bleed purple and gold. LSU baby.

I left off with some cypress jointed and planed for the stretchers with a loose idea of what I wanted to do. I was originally hoping to do a “loopy” sort of deal (like the loopy infill), but I’d need to invest in a router guide b...
(Quite a few pics with this blog) I guess I am a cheap and a glutton for punishment. Off cuts of poplar, red grandis, and a tiny bit of maple from a local cabinet shop. Plus some white and red oak scraps i had on hand. After joint...
