Today was a day of giving. A fellow lj William gave me an intire truck bed of future furniture. Lets start with the 80 board feet of 4/4 red oak.
Then this grand load of walnut, of all shapes and sizes.
Then there was some spalted and wormy ohhhh something will have to investigate a little more. But It is beautiful.
Then some more small sizes and large dowels of mahogany.
There was one gem of apple.
Ok the oak still gets the “what am I going to build now” juices flowing.
Then the shop elves showed up and had to help Pawpaw.
After the visit with William and his family we had to go find some lunch and see the sites. William lives in one of our beautiful old cities of Vicksburg Mississippi.
The big ole man river flows nearby. Thats Jessica and her friend Clair.
I wonder how long it will take to refurb this big ole boy.
Well I did find an antique shop. And found this small 18” clamp.
And I have to show the plains William and KTTM gave me at the Pearl river Wood cavers Guild meeting.
And I picked up a couple of old rasps to.
What a good day. This blog took me about 3 hours to write. Seems grandsons are of need of a little attention.
Thank you William and all you fellow lj’s for your giving spirit. I believe he who gives receives it back seven fold.
And while I was gone I had bid on another plane on ebay for $22.00 and won it. What a great day. Its now 11:00 pm and bed time.
