  1. I used to have a number of walnut trees on a prior home. It's no wonder walnut trees grow so slowly, they are the last to leaf out and the first to drop their leaves.
  2. Spent the day Friday with three other guys completing cutting out parts for the 120 dining tables we're going to push to get assembled for Christmas for the furniture bank. Figured 2040 pieces cut to size, stretch wrapped, and stacked. http://nlfurniture.org/
  3. Aging wood

    Not my cup of tea (pardon the pun), but in case you are interested. Note the first slide -- run some tests because not all woods react the same. Rustoleum also makes a weathered wood stain, but I've not tried it either. https://www.familyhandyman.com/painting/how-to-age-wood/?pmcode=IVBJJU103&_cmp=DiyTipsHintsNL&_ebid=DiyTipsHintsNL10202017&_mid=176709&ehid=EBC4D8BEC6F08D97A318788DB78D9A1244AF138A/20/#listicle/2/
  4. I was really proud of this

    I often get a chuckle out of professional signmakers who make a spelling or grammar mistake.
  5. Amazing http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/infrastructure/a16068/hot-dogs-and-construction-equipment/?src=socialflowFB
  6. Judy is known for Intarsia https://intarsia.com/ Wayne is known for chip carving https://chipcarving.com/ There were a few vendors there, but I'm not all that interested in Dremel burrs, carving knives or blocks of basswood or cottonwood bark. "Should be like a person's dog, I can admire it but not be expected to take it home with me." About the only carving I do is Swedish wood spoons a la Wille Sundqvist. All you need for that is a knife and a gouge, and optionally an axe. https://www.amazon.com/Swedish-Carving-Techniques-Fine-Woodworking/dp/1627106731
  7. Went up today. Sorry, forgot my camera - hectic weekend. Lots of carvers, a few turners, and fewer furniture makers. Handful of vendors of wood and knives. In addition to the usual caricature carvers, the latest fad seems to be carving Harry Potter-ish towers out of cottonwood bark. One exhibitor called them "Whimsical carving." The other fad seems to be sale of "rough outs" that appeared to be CNC shaped wood ready for detail carving. Judy Gale Roberts and Wayne Barton (if those names mean anything to you) were both there. Missed Scott Phillips who did a "New Tools" presentation yesterday.
  8. Initials, anyone?

    Yeah, what happened to Larry Jenkins? I remember him from WOOD forums.
  9. We All Use Math;

  10. Six Dumb Questions Real 
Lawyers Asked In Court “How many times have you 
committed suicide?” “Were you alone or by yourself?” “Was it you or your brother who was killed?” “Without saying anything, tell the jury what you did next.” “Was that the same nose you broke as a child?” “Now, doctor, isn’t it true that when a person dies in his sleep, 
he doesn’t know about it until the next morning?”
  11. After the sign got lost (somewhere?) for two weeks and the rain ended, got it installed today. Ready for business this weekend.
  12. No, it's not me. ttp://www.wafb.com/story/36579417/cleveland-is-that-you-armed-robbery-victim-asks-no-its-not-me-suspect-replies-according-to-warrant
  13. Flu shot anyone?

    My Doc said it was a stronger dose because as we age, our immune system isn't as strong to react and needs a bit of a boost to get full immunity.
  14. I'm planning to be there Sunday afternoon. If anyone else goes, look me up.
  15. Flu shot anyone?

    Nope, get one every year. Got mine last week.
