Cleaning and reorganizing while my wood dries. Hard to get much done with all my fingers crossed. Haven't touched a clamp but, oh man, I sure wanna peek.

Picked a few pieces of 1/4" plywood......taking today OFF.    Uncle Arthur in full force on both knees....stairs are out of the question. 

 

Maybe tomorrow, I can get a back on the dresser....maybe start a drawer or two.   We'll see...

built 4 walls for the pistol range today, 6 feet tall, 6 feet wide, top 4 feet covered with shade fabric.  these are used at our IDPA matches to create rooms and hallways to move and shoot among them.  3 solid, 1 with two shooting windows.  will deliver tomorrow and also fix up some of the older ones that have taken a beating over time.  some people (cough) manage to shoot the lumber.  oops.

Glad I have Easy Wood Turning Tools! I tried my "standard" stuff- lots of catches and sharpening. Still have the bottom to finish off. Might try to make a lid, too. I'll post some pictures.

Beautiful combination John...really like the leg design and overall proportions.

Great save on your cutting boards too!

Finished turning a few pens for my cousins.

 

 

We are having a family picnic today for the immediate family.  The kids and their kids show up for this one but most bow out for the reunion in Pittsburgh in two weeks.  Weatherman says it should be a nice day.

First thing is to take the old drywall from the walls in the shop to the landfill. Then I will start hanging boxes and routing wire to them. When that is done, install the insulation

Sounds like fun, Kelly.....all except for the demo. I always enjoyed wiring and planning for tool outlets. And, insulation isn't all that bad, either. But, hanging dry wall is only fun when I can watch.:D

 

Eldest son (by 10 minutes) and his bride, showed up unexpectedly, at 05:30. 

No shop time till Monday. It's great to have them here, though.

Youngest son and family will be here Labor Day.

@Grandpadave52 I've become very familiar with the shuttle service since I retired.

Dag had a close one today.   Making a left hand turn and the truck behind me could not stop and swerved to the left, sideswiping me.   No one hurt, but probably totaled my car and did serious damage to his truck.   Trailer was carrying six or so big logs that jammed into his tailgate and his front end did a face plant into a telephone pole, breaking his window, setting off air bags and crunching engine.  We could not find his right front wheel assembly (wheel, brake, suspension rods).   It was under my gas tank!?  To make matters worse it was two guys from the local woodturner's guild  taking logs for a seminar starting Monday.

Glad no one was hurt...BTDT back in April...Iron can be replaced; it's just the nuisance and hassle of dealing with it.
