« Part 29: Brian May's guitar Part 30 of random series Part 31: 1 YEAR ON LUMBERJOCKS! »

I haven’t been around for awhile. I’ve been super lazy. I have worked on a few small things, and I’m starting to get it into gear again, getting the garage cleaned up and organized and making things once more. I will be returning to the fun here soon, probably just after the holidays. I miss this place and my fellow woodworkers :)

In the meantime, I give you some tape measure tricks:

Wow Gary, reminds me of some kind reptile that sticks it’s tongue out to catch insects. Frogs? Lizards? That guy is incredible, but I wouldn’t want to have him working for me when I see how he uses his time. LOL.

That guy is pretty slick.

I noticed you have not been around for a while. There was a M.I.A. post the other night and it reminded me that I had not seen anything from you for awhile. I am glad to see you back posting again.

Funny but it doesn’t look as smooth as this stuff:

Guy is pretty good with a tape, but like Mike, glad he doesn’t work for me ;-)) Reminds me of a carpenter who had his dog trained to fetch his hammer and saw many moons ago. He’d tell the dog to fetch his hammer. It would take about 15 or 20 minutes for the dog to finally get it to him. This went on all day long every day!! I have no idea why he didn’t get canned for not getitng any work done!!

Looks like a man with too much time on his hands to me. And to agree with Topomax -I’m glad he doesn’t work for me.
