I have numerous projects going on. In short, all my horizontal surfaces have gone missing and it is standing room only.
This is the main cause of the melee’. We have decided to toy with silver soldering and jewelry. So, this area of our shrinking shop is being converted to a jeweler’s bench with acetylene torch, flex shaft tool, and all those other cool tools that jewelers use.
I will have to find a new home for all that hardware.
I made a fixture to hold my 6” Ridgid orbital sander in an upside-down position to help in sanding the small items I do. Works great, and the dust extraction is excellent. Also, fantastic for quick grit switching. Here are a couple pics.
Last but not the least (for sure) is the ritual 17 year clean out of the goldfish pond in back of our house. I believe new species have evolved here.
It might not look big, but it is about 10×14 feet and 3.5 feet deep at the right end. 5 wheelbarrows of muck were removed (great compost).
So this is what I have been up to these last 10-12 days, along with orders for my keychains and my full time “real” job. I didn’t even mention the bathroom remodel and spare bedroom rehab I have going on as well. Maybe later.
Stay Tuned for the next progress report.
Peace in Wood,
BTW – We went to Vero beach Saturday and Sunday. In my opinion the Ocean Grill is still the best restaurant in Florida.
