I am happy to see the repair came out. Now get it inside before you break it again. And you have to resort to super gorilla glue;)

I am absent minded sometimes. I was sitting it outside the large front door of the shop to get that sunlight like you and I talke about SuperD. Then today, I was moving my wife’s jeep over to the shop.
Long story about the jeep. I’ll tell you about it later. I’ll just say I’m about ready to set fire to it. It’s costing me money I don’t have.
I thought about the book stand and slammed on breaks. I stopped the Jeep about two inches shy of running it over.
It is now on my roll around table under the window on the inside. That is where it will stay until I get around to putting finish on it. I don’t think I could repair it if I run it over with a vehicle.
That would not be a book stand. That would probably be more like the world’s worst wooden puzzle.

Oh, and I’m still waiting to see that garden table you build for the wife. You promised pictures.

I did it in 2 hours and a framing gun. Nothing special but she will get her done. You have the same luck as me. Murphy Syndrome;)

It does the job and looks like it’s well constructed. Now I got to go onto something else before my wife walks over here and sees this. I don’t want to build one right now. I can already hear in my head, “Well if he can build that for his wife, I want one too. That would be perfect for potting my flowers on”.

Believe it or not, those studs have a lot of memories for me SuperD. The four with paint, stain, etc were used to redo this house before we moved in…....

SuperD and William, I plan to blow you away with my next project…........... time for some metal, in wood, so to speak…...

Working on my bench too. I feel it’s something I shouldn’t blog about, so I won’t

Everything has menaing SuperD. Everything. Nothing in life happens without reason and all that jazz. You know this. It’s the reason I have no hair. I pulled it all out trying to figure out the meaning of life.
I already know what he’s building. I already know what ’s he’s building. I already know what he’s building (sang with the anoiyance of a small child when he’s thinks he knows a secret that you don’t). I can’t wait to see the project KTMM. I checked around with a couple of guys I know locally about what I told you I would try and find. I have come up empty as I usually do in my recent (recent meaning for a couple of years now) luck of finding things though. Ten years ago I could have put my hand on a couple dozen good donor parts within the hour. I hope you have better luck than me on finding some.

Can’t say online. It might spoil the suspense.
I’m sure KTMM wouldn’t mind telling you about it though if you shoot him a text message. I started to text you and tell, but thought better of it since it isn’t my project.
