Sticky? No, Gorilla Glue dries overnight. It’s not sticky now.
Hey KTMM, I finally got a little shop time yesterday. Recognize these parts?

I kind of overdone it though. My back hasn’t been doing too great lately.
My wife is on my butt because I wasn’t supposed to go to the shop yesterday. I never actually told her I wouldn’t though as she left out yesterday. I only told her I would take it easy. Working wood is taking it easy for me. So she got a little annoyed.
That’s ok. She’s has to leave the house again today. As soon as she is out of sight…........

Good luck to you in the contest William! I have been looking for the wood Gorilla Glue around here and haven’t had any luck yet. Since I saw how good this repair went, I really want to try it. You have “raised my awareness of Gorilla Glue products” as I thought that they only made the kind that grows like the dickens.

Thanks for showing us that even YOU make mistakes! All you do comes out so nice – I was starting to wonder. :)

Great project and a lot of fun to watch you do it.

Sheila

This was a combined effort SuperD. So if I win, we win.
Ah! Yes, the rake and hoe. I’m so happy my wife decided not to mess with a garden this year. Besides a few tomatoe plants in five gallon buckets, we have no garden at all this year. We sat down and figured up what we spend every year on fetilizer and such for this baron piece of land we live on and made a discovery. We can go buy our fresh vegetables at the local farmer’s market for about the same price we’ve been spending on the priviledge to mess with the garden every year. So we figured we’d save the headache and forego the garden this year and see how it goes.
She also worries about me hurting myself in the garden every year. I can’t help it. I have to get my grubby little hands into everything around here whether I’m supposed to or not.
Then the problem comes in. You didn’t really think everything was going to be that smooth, did you?
The problem is I didn’t realize that with no garden to spend money on that she would just spend extra this year on flowers.
I don’t have a bike to putt around on, but just wait until this river gets back down to a reasonable level. I want to take my boat out so bad.

Yes, Sheila, I make mistakes. I make a LOT of mistakes. Unless they are a part or reason for a project though, I don’t actually always talk about them. I recently told someone that was talking about my skills that my most valuable skill is hiding my many mistakes.
You see, the trick is to never make mistakes. Well, don’t call them mistakes anyway. Call them design changes. You see the break I made on this? I meant to do that. I wanted an excuse to enter this contest. I just had to break this so that SuperD would suggest it. You see, I wanted him to suggest that. You see? Yea, that’s the way it happened. That’s my story.
What?
Don’t you believe me?
Woodworkers don’t lie!

Thanks Sheila. I just went over to Gorilla’s website to try and see what exactly it is I won. I know about the regular glue and wood glue. I had no idea what else they made.

I like the book stand and I’m thinking of doing one that is chip carved. You did a good job on this.
