The week end started with me filling my wife’s order for four more picture frames. From scratch and 2 ten foot 2/4. I got it done.
That is done and they are hanging in the living room.
Then a package came from a fellow LJ, Paul David Soto.
It seems he had been to Japan and had some inspiration.
Another package came and a Ohio tongue and groove plane was in it. Its missing one iron but with time I should be able to find one.
I needed some nails from the big orange box. I like to take concrete nails and heat the heads cherry red. Then wack em to a square end. While I was getting the nails they had a box of nails right next to them and I had to get some. They only had them in 8 penny.
Then anothe package came. This one was from eBay and I had a few eBay bucks built up. I bid and won. With shipping I got them for $.62.
My prize for the Stumpy Nubs Tuba-four contest came.
A book, bumper sticker and an autographed picture of the Stumps.
The picture holds a spot on the shop wall.
Then the best package of all. I got this from eBay for a grand total of $27.00
