Made a cane for my daughter in law, she is getting ready for back surgery. It is Red Oak and Walnut.

Excellent! The work on the handle is really nice. The inlay really sets it off.
Hope the surgery goes well and she recovers quickly.

Pretty piece, Dan. Hope she doesn’t need it… (-:

Gad Zooks, Dan, I haven’t even had my first cup of coffee and you are harassing me!!!... (-:

I will post it as a project. It is pretty straightforward in appearance, but had to fight a little warp in a big piece of plywood. Fortunately, my wife wants it painted, so I can take some short cuts with appearance. OK, I will try to get some pictures up as soon as it is done, hopefully this week. My wife has me tasked to a whole pile of things…

It’s tough being the Sourdough House Husband… weep for me… (-:

Well Doc, you chose to retire, so shut up and get to work. LOL And don’t forget the entry bench you need.

...and you had to mention the entry bench, didn’t you.

Here’s a funny, Sherie drags me over to the new condo (for her handicapped daughter) that we just acquired, to fix or replace a smoke alarm that is beeping incessantly, and driving Sherie nuts. She has been measuring things, and figuring out what needs to be done. It is absolutely empty.

So we stop at Lowe’s, get a stepladder that will stay at the condo, a keypad dead bolt lock, and an assortment of batteries, not knowing what the smoke alarm would require. Take the stuff into the house, and reach for the stepladder to get the alarm down, and I find it has been held closed with a plastic cable tie, put on at the factory.

It took us 5 minutes to figure out we didn’t have anything to cut the cable tie with, not even a finger nail clipper!!! Normally I carry a Swiss Army Knife or Leatherman, but nope, not a thing. Had to go back to Lowe’s just to buy a darn nippers to cut the cable tie.

Now you know why it is so hard being the Sourdough House Husband (SDHH), I am just not smart enough!!!

Maybe I am still just in training…(-:

Of course, all husbands are enrolled in a course of life long training, at least that’s what it feels like.

Later…
