I’m so tired of the ice, snow, and cold I could barf. For one thing it keeps me in one little part of my garage, which I made my shop so it would’nt be so hard to heat. But when it warm up I use the whole garage. When it thaws I’ll be able to get at the wood I got last summer from an old guy I know that gave me a bunch of wood all cut up and stacked. Great guy. He gave me all the walnut, red and white oak I wanted, hickory, a little cherry, elm and some iron wood. It’s all covered, but frooze solid.
My big problem is my garage. I bought about 1500 bd. ft. of red and white and good white,hard maple in different thicknesses last spring at a lumber mill and dried it myself and thats all in the garage, along with about 700 bd. ft. of 1×6 TxG cedar I’ve got to find a use for. So I want to try making something other than turnings. Maybe cabinets or bookcases, something like that. We have to finish our patio and I know my wife wants some patio furniture and planters made from the cedar. But the other problem I have are the machines i’ve aquired as I’ve upgraded my machines. So I have like 2 lathes, 2 scrowll saws, 2 band saws, a 17 ft canoe, an extra kitchen table and chair set, a quad, an extra table saw, and a lot of other junk I’ve been trying to sell by hand bill. I’m gonna try the news papers next and ebay as a last resort, i’ve been hearing bad things about ebay lately, so I’m leary about going that way. I just hope the machines hold up to all the machineing I’ve got to do on the wood before I can use it. I’ll probably give out before they do. Any way the sun will feel mighty good. Even with the sceeters. God Bless All jockmike
