Well last Sunday we received around 4” of rain in a 24 hour period half of which came overnight. I happened to want to get something out of my shop on Monday morning and opened the basement only to be hit with the smell of “wet basement”.

Morris style glider #8: Gluing of laminated armrest

01-18-2015 09:29 PM by Orange008 | 2 comments »

I just talked to Shelli DeCou

When I talked to her last week she said that after he got his OK to go back to work, he had a lot to get caught up on. So I’m guessing that shop time is at a premium and computer time is at a minimum.

I hate to embarass myself (WON’T be the first time) but why do many of us refer to turned , lided piece as a box? Any box I have ever owned had flat sides unless it was for candy or maybe a hat? Anyway, guess I’ll get back to turning this hollowed vessel with a lid….........;-j
