« Part 1: Im gonna try dovetails Part 2 of Woodworking Awards 2008 - 2x4 series Part 3: Making Dust on Project X »

Well DW and I went X-Country skiing this morning. It was a beautiful day.

When we returned I worked on my cut list calculations for my XXXXX. I was surprised to see that I can actually make two XXXXXs instead of one. Or to look at it another way . . . I have spare parts just in case I screw up the dovetails.

This evening I decided to sift through my pile of construction grade 2×4s that I store in my shop (all two of them) to look for the best one. Here am I holding my stick.

If Zuki can stand out in the snow holding his stick, I can make the ten paces through the cold rain tomorrow to my ‘shop & make a start on my YYYYY!

Come on Yorkie . . . dont let a little rain dampen your spirit !

If you must know Ms.D . . . DW (Mrs. Zuki) took the pic. I “convinced” her to come outside and snap the pic. She came out on the step in her woolen jammies and slippers.

I had my glasses on in the first one she snapped and she said I looked like Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.
