I need to get out to the shop. Her Birthday is next week, and what I ordered for her gift just notified me is on back order… So I need to get out to the shop. There are made gifts that I can do that she wants… Sadly though, I also have a surgery early next week to boot. Nothing major but I will be out of it where I shouldn’t be using power tools for about 2 days…

I had better get busy!

If push comes to shove, there’s always “chocolates and roses” to consider :-)

I might have to do that…. For what it’s worth The projects involve storage for her Jewelry, so this should be fun. I think I would be better off doing those for Christmas…

Make a nice little IOU card and explain her gift was on back order – out of your control.
Then take her out to eat. Plenty of good eating joints in and around your neck of the woods. :-)

Good luck with the surgery.

Well, her gift came in, she loves it. Took her to her favorite Italian joint for dinner, and home made brownies A La Mode per her request…. Was a nice day. Not as nice as I would have liked for her due to me still recovering.

I have LOTS of work to do on the glue lam for her Christmas gift, but at least I have a little bit of time.

Not the best pic, but…

It’s a simple bracelet hanger. 3 horizontal “Rolling Pins” that hold the various bracelets, and a simple upright gun rack type of arrangement to hold the rolling pins.

I am making the entire thing out of construction grade SYP per her request. Using Minwax Dark Walnut stain.

I guess she wants to try my hand at turning again. I have never been all that good at anything beyond candle sticks. I will see how closely I can get 3 of these rolling pins turned.
