I'm actually building something... a few cabinets that will form what I have as a desk in the shop. Still moving slowly, all my small tools and stuff are still in the basement, and every time I go to do something there's a tool down there that I think I need. If it ever dries up enough I'll get all that stuff moved to the shop.

Ron I do not envy you the job but it does look like you have some active helpers. Still at son's but my DIL has more ideas of what I need to make for her store so ordered some bottle openers and stoppers to make when I get home. Also found some color ply utensils she wants me to try. That stuff is expensive. I looked at the prices and 2x2x10 is $10.

Meeting my brother for lunch later...maybe some rust hunting & a trip by H-F. Tonight, oldest grandson's much anticipated Pinewood Derby Run-Off:P

Saturday, keep head low, stay out of direct line of sight as the oldest grand-daughter, her mother & grandmother prepare for her first prom. It may be a day to don the Carhart's and just sit in a bitter cold garage for safety's sake:ph34r:

Little else to report...

That's a good move.   I think i went "dress shopping" with at least two of mine (multiple times, apparently i didn't learn the first time).  :lol:

Organize and store all of my "staged" hardware in the hardware cabinet, continue to work on taxes and maybe, just maybe I may be able to get started on my new workbench.

SIL is moving from the mesa to be near her daughter in CA. She had been storing an old...very old... walnut dining table. She just brought me four leaves. 3/4"X43"x11 1/2". Some where along the line, they've been stripped of the finish.

I'll go get the rest of the table tomorrow.

The planer sled will be getting a rest.

I only have one word for all that -

 

 

elope

I'm thinking of daughters.    Offered a premium to elope.   No one took me up on it.

Hardware cabinet update - bins in the drawers, some loaded. No labels yet, waiting to see how things "work" before I put the labels on.

Workbench update - feet and rails cut to oversize length and planed to thickness. Tomorrow will start the split mortises and work on the legs.
