  1. Friday the 13th

    We live in a 1 horse town and we have more than our share of idiots! We'll gladly share them.

    The cars will go into the "Christmas Shoe Boxes" that are distributed to needy children thru out the world. These will be going to a church about 55 mile from here to add to their boxes. I'll get some more pictures when I go back out to the shop.

    I use 1x6 poplar and 2 cars will fit on a 6" piece. I have a pattern that I trace, then I drill the axle holes and a start hole for the windows. I have been using a 7r blade and then just have a seat at the scroll saw and have at it. This is the 3rd or 4th year that I've made them. Each year it is more cars. The first year was around 25 of them! It's always fun because of where they're going. If I have time they want some small zoo or farm animals. I'll use the scraps for those.

    It's that time of year again! I have 84+ toy cars to make for the "Christmas Shoe Boxes. This will keep Santa (me) busy for a few weeks!
  5. Georgia Bull dog

    I better not let my wife see this or I will have another project to do!!! Since we have 2 Bulldogs, we (she) collects almost anything Bulldog and the town in Arkansas that "our" daughter lives in the Bulldog is their school mascot I may wind up having a winter project! If I can ask, where did you get the pattern for this?
  6. Mister McGoo syndrom

    I'm right there with all of you! From drag racing, shooting and then working in a HIGH NOISE factory for 30 years, mines shot. I have hearing aids but their not much help. It's frustrating having people talking to you and only catching 1/2 of what they say. Watching tv is a challenge to catch what is being said so I don't watch much any more.
  7. Simple little candy box?

    I know what it can be like with a flooded basement! The yard slopes toward the house so a fast snow melt or a "gully washer" used to always come toward the back door. Snow was ok this winter and gutters on the shop cured the problem with the snow melt and storm water.. We'll see what happens.
  8. Santa Claus came to town!

    Mom's doing good for being 92. I'm here so my sister and family can go on a vacation Who knows when they'll be able to drag me out of Montana again!
  9. Birthday Wishes To....

    Thanks for the Birthday wishes. I'm on "vacation" down by Allen W. so I haven't been on here too much. With the heat they have going I'll be glad to get back home.
  10. Birthday Wishes To....

    Have to watch what you wish for!
  11. Every day is still the weekend when you're retired.
  12. My wife's mother is very sick. Please pray.

    Sorry to hear about all she is going thru. June and I will being praying for all of you. Take care. Harry & June
  13. This is the first day that I feel like I've joined the living! Had the flu for a couple of weeks then it turned into bronchitis. You talk about being down and out. Went out and mowed the lawn and then after a rest I'm heading out to the shop to cut some ribbons and crosses.
  14. Trailer siding

    If it was me building this, I would use 1/2" if not 3/4" ply.. Most everything I make any more I "over build". I want it to take some abuse without having to worry if it's going to hold up. I try to be easy on things but there are some people around that aren't and tend to break things.
  15. Tabs on the Weather...

    It got up to 36* Wed. with about 4" of heavy snow. Power outs, trees down etc.
