Randy – hex…..metric….should be the same as yours…..get yourself a T-handle set if you don’t already have…..

William – keep polishing…..I think Dave is serious…..and you wouldn’t want Dave to win would you? Or would that make the wife right…..man, this is tricky…..

Jeff I can’t get my hands on any. I have a different avenue to try. I wanted to stay period with my methods.

Contest is on!
Everybody Get there best piece of maple and slap sum finish on it. One picture is the entry. We will keep a running tally of it.
Winner gets a Maple leaf.
William can you scroll us a small maple leaf?

Jeff, It’s almost done; 8 coats of lacquer (but I’m getting some very fine orange peel that’s making me crazy!). Don’t get your hopes up as it doesn’t compare to William’s masterpiece. At least I didn’t use your birdseye in my bathroom project I posted today! LOL

Losers will get a Bandit Picture…

Makes a good Mouse trap, though. Place a few copies around the shop, it will either kill the mice, or drive them away. Is that spelled mice, or is it Meeeses. I’ll have to check that out on the spelling.

Not Maple, but …

it will get a few coats of BLO later…..

When is this contest deadline.
Since it seems I’ve somehow became involved in it without meaning to get involved in it.
Yes, I can scroll a maple leaf.
But I could also provide trophy with a jar of maple syrup on it.

gave it to me years ago
had some water stains on it
but i made a sanding jig last night
and it cleaned right up

the jig is good to clean up those slims

Good Morning gents.

Last evening after earning my daily bread, my elder son helped me with moving the first cabinet in the kitchen. We discovered the cabinets were nailed in. I am certain that the good Lord has a special place in hell for any one that would nail kitchen cabinets to the wall!

I’ll get some pictures in a bit. I am moving the uppers first, then installing the range hood and hope to move the stove this weekend. I am really not looking forward to the task of redoing the plumbing which is what is next after the stove is moved.

Marty,

I like the box!

On the subject of wives: Miss J is ALWAYS right, at least I try to let her THINK that. Of course what she doesn’t know can’t hurt me, at least if she never finds it out. I may be Lord of the Manor, but I have learned that life is much more pleasant if I let her have her way.

Randy, you could make a band saw.
It is time consuming, but not hard.
In my opinion, my shop built band saw is much better than most I’ve seen and read about available commercially.

Morning all.
I gotta go back and watch the video Dave posted.
Someone commented that it “wasn’t right”, so it must be a good one.

Anyway, I’m sorry I petered out last night.
I fell asleep earlier than I thought.
Actually, I fell asleep without going to bed.
Yes, I dozed off leaned on my elbows in front of the computer.
Don’t tell my wife. She was at work and doesn’t know it.
I have been taking some antibiotics for an abcess tooth, and I think they’re making me drowsy.

I will be done with my lamp though before Dave’s deadline and post photos.
I never imagined I’d be in a finishing contest though.
Finishing is not at all something I’m very good at to begin with.
For the shade everyone seen yesterday, it wasn’t me.
It’s just oil on a wood that is extremely beautiful to begin with.

Good morning fellow misfits.
I am OK William, Sandra is getting better, I have been looking after her and cooking etc., and only logged on briefly to read email and posts.
To top it all our washer quit with a full load of washing in it, so that has been a problem. Also as it has turned chilly, I am also busy rigging for winter mode inside and outside the house and looking for firewood etc..

I am still feeling good, that shot I got on Monday after the Friday chemo is Neulasta which among other things is supposed to counteract the damage the chemo does to my immune system.

Can’t tell you what today brings, but whatever it is, I’ll be hard at it. Hope I can get back here sometime.

You are all now ordered to have a great day and celebrate Randy’s freedom.

Hi All,

Well this cold is still kicking my ass, but I forced myself into the shop today.
Cut some MDF shelves for a friends cabinet that’s been in the shop waaayyyy too long. I’m not charging her money for this. She’s a potter, and my wifes birthday is in a week and I’m trading for some pottery for my wife. I figure it’ll be a nice change from wooden spoons. :)
Also dug some birdseye off of the floor of the shop and starting making another candle box for my Dads wife’s Christmas present. She sent over a bunch of roughsawn birdseye this summer, so I figure I’ll make her something out of it.
Here’s a picture of the dry fit for the dovetails.

I’d go in the maple finishing contest with you guys, but I’m afraid mines gonna have too much snot in the finish.

Time for some more cold pills.
