These are awesome projects to be cranking out at break neck speed! What do you do with all of them?

I’ll go with 3 weeks as well. Going good William. Right now it looks like the bay windows on the entrance of an old church.
Topamax he is fibbing to everybody. They are made out of ginger bread. He uses cake molds and makes them in the oven. Then when the project is done he feeds them to his 8 kids. How else would they get desert;)

Ya’ll are saying three weeks. Wait till you see the details come out on this. I haven’t even finished the base section yet. Next I have to cut the plate that goes on top of the base (more of those weird angles). Then there will be quarter inch thick small gussets that go into the corner made by the base and the top. They are spaced about an inch apart and go all the way around the sides and front of the base. First I have to plane the mahogany and cut them, all 72 of them.
I’m glad I am good at stack cutting.

Hi William,

You seem to spit stuff out pretty quick, not to mention work a lot of hours, so I’m thinking you wife might be closer.

Really great looking work.

You guys keep saying how quickly I do things. Yet, I feel I’m moving too slow on things most of the times. I wish I could still hold up to the pace I used to work at before my health went south. Truth be told Lee, I work rather short hours. The hours are odd though. I may work on something a few hours in the moring. Then I may go back and do some more in the afternoon after lying down for a while. Then, sometimes when my back gets to hurting and I can’t sleep, I even go piddle around at the shop at two or three in the morining. However, when I piece it together on these little blogs (creative writing covers up a lot of boring details), it appears like one long work day.

I’m enjoying these blogs William because it’s fun to watch a lot of smaller detail work get assembled into a large project. So lots of fun doing little projects while still getting the satisfaction of a large piece at the end. Couldn’t be better!
