    I spent the day bouncing from project to project. The most important project was to "carve" a plaque for the front of our communion table at church. The table had, "Do this in Remembrance" on the front but our Senior Pastor wanted to add the words, "UNTIL HE COMES ..." on the back of the table. The table has a 5" skirt around the top and is part of the table. None of the woodworkers in the church had a router template acceptable to rout the letters so I put the Carvewright to the test. I laminated a piece of white oak over a piece of walnut and planed the oak to about 1/8" while planing the whole piece to 1/2" The letters are carved in to a depth of 1/4" so there is a shadowing effect. After I do a trial fit, I'll rout the edge with a 5/32" Roman Ogee bit which will add to the 3D effect. The skirt is 54" long so I'll cut the plaque to 34" and enter it on the table and screw it on from the back of the skirt. Oh yeah, I glued up 11 cutting boards and put three folding wine tables together also. Good day!

    SuperMax 16-32

    Thanks to John Morris, Laguna, the patriot raffle and some luck, I used the Laguna certificate to buy a SuperMax 16-32 Drum Sander. today I assembled it and now I am studying the Operator Manual. I even got a free beat up pallet I can give away to someone to nail up on their living room wall. Here are the pictures. Herb

    Got the chair back together

    At least the four legs look the same again. And had to make a new rung also for the owner now deceased cut one end off to get the chair back together after some of the joints he had glued set up too much to spread that far apart. There is a right way and a wrong way of of gluing this chair back like it should be. I had to make a one time jig for the holes in this kind of a chair are all drilled at angles. I know this is the original finish for the factory does not go to the trouble of staining under the rungs or applying a clear top coat for that area will never be seen. I won't get into the reconstruction unless someone wants to know. Also I think my lucky stars for this chair was built before the bluming idiots started putting staples in all the glue joints making it almost impossible to repair when broken!!!

    Drill Press Depth stop

    I have a small HF drill press that had a plastic collar to hold the depth stop. It was too flexible to be accurate, so I made a new one out of a piece of 1/4" thick aluminum. Herb

    PIP River Table

    I gotta laugh too, Herb. What else? Outta my control. Herb, the "river" will be glass. The epoxy (and turquoise dust/shards) will fill holes, cracks and voids that are inevitably found in mesquite. Sanding does the trick.

    Hope you enjoy it . Nothing like a wide belt sander. Maybe you should sand the pallet before you give it away so the wall hanging will be smoooth.

    That's good Stick, because you all should know our philosophy here by now, we don't share any information about our members to any other entity, all your information is kept private and confidential, we don't sell your email addresses to marketers as other forums do, and we pride ourselves in being fanatical about keeping intrusive advertising off our forums. We want you all to feel comfortable being here. We are all volunteers here, we do this because we love woodworking, and we love our veterans. I love our community we have formed, and that includes you Stick! The man, Stick! This community would not be what it is today, without you all. And I think we have developed a trust by now, that we don't slam you with ads, we hold your privacy in the highest regard, and we completely understand, that without the membership and all the time and effort you put in here yourselves, we could not run the projects we do. So, off my soapbox, thank you all for being here, Stick, thank you for your contributions to our community, and I hope by now I have swayed any doubters, that we are here for you, with respect, and care, and concern as always. Cheers!

    MWTCA January 2018 "What's It" Project

    It's all on the Dark Web already. When the government allowed their data base to be hacked a couple of years ago they got all of my security clearance information...probably right down to what color the safety pin heads were that my mother used on my diapers. My CC number changes every couple of years, because they can't keep the information from being hacked either. As for the bank accounts, good luck...I don't even know those numbers...I have to look them up occasionally.

    medium sized pine bowl. finish is beeswax/mineral oil (food safe). the blank was chopped off a large beam that has been sitting outside for at least the last 7+ years. that's our kitchen in the background. i designed and built it a few years ago. it only has 44 drawers, 13 lazy susans, and the island is 10 feet long, with 30" deep cabinets and counter. great for baking.

    sex screws

    ok kids, gather around for a story of spell check gone wrong: some years ago, i worked for an engineering company that did building inspections for investors - real estate due diligence is the proper term. anyway, we did lots of buildings. lots. thousands. and some clients had large portfolios, so it would take several months to see them all and write all the needed reports. so at some point, a large portfolio was done and delivered. everyone happy as far as i know. and as part of marketing, someone in the executive wing decided to show off this accomplishment and explain what was done, and by extension, what could be done for your large portfolio. cool. so a glossy, 4 color mailer was printed up. hundreds of them. to mail out to clients. one day, i'm in the office, chatting with someone who has a pile of these mailers getting ready to go out. many had already been sent. i ask, 'can i read that?' "sure" now as background, at that time, it was my job to both write these reports (about 20 pages of text on average) and review other reports prepared by others. I read every word. i did not use spell check. so i read this mailer. and in the middle of the text they intended to say that the reports had been sent out in "six bundles". but that's not what the mailer said. oh no. It said the reports were sent out in ....... "sex bundles" oh my. now this mailer had been reviewed by several executive types, the print job had been approved. the printer cranked out hundreds of these things at not a small cost. and me, some low level engineer with attention to detail had caught this. oh did the poop hit the fan. not my fault, i gotta go. bye. did i mention that they had already sent out hundreds of these? bwhahahaha...... so much for your reliance on spell check. read it. read it again. have your wife read it. so watch out for those "sex bundles" end of story time. DAB.

    Happy to hear the operation went well Patch. Prayers for you both but especially for her (1) that pain lessens quickly and she recurs fully (2) she survives you being in charge of the household duties Of course maybe that's your secret plan to do laundry; Nothing will get her back on her feet any faster than having you meddling in her system... That's when you make a trip to the store and buy extra pairs so you don't have to launder as often. Blessings to you both...if I was closer I'd help you however I could.
