Ok, so it has been quite the summer. There were super lows to super highs, from health problems like four large kidney stones to amazing vacations in the Redwoods and Florida (Which we owe so much to the Wounded Warrior Foundation so much for).

Basically, after the Sea Monster the work on the floor came to a grinding halt. But know I am back on my feet and in a good routine. I am taking over the whole garage for my shop, my wife is awesome!, so my shop time has been dedicated to getting organized in there. This will make working on the floor so much easier and make it possible for me to work on other projects as well! I am excited. However there is a ton of work to do. I don’t have any storage so I had to make this shelf up out of 3/4 OSB.

I used my Safety Speed Cut panel saw. She is a sweet machine! Thank you friends for your patience, your kind thoughts and always for your encouragement! I am always amazed at the hearts of woodworkers!

Thank you very much Jim. I didn’t want to have a super bulky shelf but I still wanted something strong, so I thought up this.

So glad to have you back in the fold Nate.

It’s good for the soul to explore new horizons and ‘reboot’ the energies.
So you’ve been granted more space for shop use and it is now a priority to stretch out and rethink your layout.

Maybe we’ll be seeing more Islands or maybe Inland inlays in your floor mosaic…whatever you decide to do, we’re glad you had a decent summer and you’re back in the shop.

Work Safely and have Fun. – Len

Len,

There is definitely more of the Map Floor to come. I have the wood for the Sea Gulls all resawn and there are three more Islands that need placing. Then all the labels.

The floor in the garage is halfway designed. I have a friend who has a few historic beams from a railroad bridge that used to run through town that is going to be incorporated. I am totally stoked about that. My future is not full of boredom at all:).

But you are so right. Now I have some serious rethinking and moving to do:).

Kidney stones suck! Stress and too much calcium for me! LOL! Guess you don’t have moisture problems there? If you do….might want to primer and paint or at least exterior stain if you have any laying around. Maybe I’m preaching to the choir? LOL!

I hate clean up but it keeps me safer in my shop! So what’s on the wife’s project list?

Thanks Doc! The moisture is not really a problem as we live in the high desert. It does rain but humidity is not a problem really.

Yes, keeping it organized is much safer.

I am going to be working on her door. I got some awesome figured birch panels from Russ at WoodRiverVeneer.com and will be making raised panels out of them.

Been wondering about you – glad you’re back up and going again. :)
