Topic tags/keywords: oak freeby gloat

Things are getting really bad around here. I lay down to sleep off my meds and when I go back out to the shop, here is is this 12 foot oak board. The bad part is that it won’t fit in my lumber rack, so now I gotta make something.These wood fairy’s have a strange sense of humor.

Like I’m really upset. he he he

so lets see you rip this
that would be a great first
showing of the new saw

you could just rip a 2×4 for us

get some cinder blocks
and use the oak
for a shoe rack for maddie

maybe she will forgive you
for getting sawdust on her washing machine

I thought you were going to make room for it in your garage! LOL

Man… I wish we had wood fairy’s in this area…

Maybe you just gotta “believe” in the “wood fairy” in order for it to work… (???) LOL

Very good… Whatcha goin to make out of it?

Life can be so amazing,
love can strike like ligthening,
little trolls can dance,
fish might fly,
wood grow on trees,
but 12 foot in a nap…
That sounds like good friend some one you can be happy to know.

Wonderful things come to wonderful people.

Best thoughts,

Dave, You know Maddie, only tennis shoes and flip-flops. She won’t use the shoe rack in the garage, so I don’t think she will use one in the closet. lol

Al, I can’t noodle anymore, so how about desert tortoise soup?

Joe, You have to cultivate a relationship with the wood fairy’s. I gave away a new Delta T-2 fence and now they are saying thank you. I believe the way they work is you give something first and then it motivates them to action.

What words did you have to say before you went to sleep? I gotta try this….......(-:

Hey, have a good time, and yup, Dave is right, a great way to christen that saw.

I am making the shelves for my minibench…...using my minibench. It is getting close. Of course, just like all plywood pieces on this bench, the edges are trimmed out with pine strips. Since these are adjustable shelves, I feel compelled to do all four edges for each. I’ll start oiling this thing with WATCO this afternoon. I did part of the oiling while I had easy access to the compressor compartment, and did the bottom, also. It is a fairly complex beast with a reversible MDF 1 inch top, with the underside having piers for route through, etc. The top has been done for some time. It is so heavy and complex, that I felt compelled to build a new substantial bench underneath it. It is 48.5 inch by 25.5 inch. I have no idea what the whole thing weighs, but with the compressor and top on it has got to be at least 250 to 300 pounds.

Well, goto run off and do some mumbo jumbo and take a nap and see what happens…......(-:

I also will like to know the secret words for that wood fairy, I usually look for trashed wood here in Denmark.
Big smile lucky you,

Jim, You know I suffer from senior moments. lol And you expect me to remember what I said 2 hours ago when I forget what I’m talking about in mid sentence. Besides, I can’t spell the racket I make when the blood pressure pills kick in any way. lol

Mafe, I think I said something like, “If you don’t come and get this @#$%^&* fence, I’m gonna junk it.” But don’t quote me. lol Maybe it sounds nicer in Danish or French. lol

So, i had a similar experience. My son does carpentry for a living. I had a weeks vacation a few weeks ago and he found out I was home. I’m not sure who let that slip. He asked me to help him with a siding job he was doing. I agreed to help, but only for a few days. At the end of a couple of days he asked me what he owed me. I said I didn’t want anything, it was just good to spend some time with my son. I don’t get the chance all that often.

A few days later I pulled in the driveway and there he was, standing next to a piece of lumber. Here’s your pay for helping me he said. The owner of the house had it in the basement and said I should get it out of there.

It was a 3” x 10” x 11’ piece of black walnut that has been air dried for about 20 years. I hate to cut the thing. What am I going to do with it? To many possibilities.

See? The wood fairy’s are at it all over. You give a little and you get a lot in return. That is one huge chunk of walnut. I’m drooling just thinking of all the book-match pieces. I have to be nicer to those fairys!!!

WW, All I’m going to share about my meds is; I don’t get them on the street. lol It’s worse…..I get them at the local VA. lol
