What if the grapes are fermented? Isn’t that more cooling? :)

We could also add in a tiki bar and sangria.

I have an air conditioned shop so I prefer the espresso bar myself.

When I lived in Davis going to college it would get get sooooo hot… I would soak a baseball cap and freeze it. Dropping that on your dome helps in a big way.

I think I would have tendency to put in a blender, blend the grapes with a little tequila, and have a frozen grape marguerita.

A few years ago, I was building a china hutch for a friend/customer who wanted pictures every day or so. When I wrapped up after a very hot day, I grabbed a cold beer and went back to snap a few pics for her.

Just for giggles, I pulled 5-6 empty bottles from the recycle bin, sat them around the shop, snapped some pics with at least one bottle in each one, and emailed them to her. Within 30 minutes, she was on the phone wondering if I had really been guzzling beer while I worked on her project. Apparently, she had been giving her coworkers a show and tell about her new hutch.

I was sharpening this $1 chisel i got at a dollar store… Broke a few water bottles, checking if it was sharp..
Not much of a big deal.
