  1. Past hour
  2. Nice cabinet! Like the coxswaining around the ceiling.
  3. What specific site are you trying to get to? I just forced my PC to upgrade to 20H2. So far I haven't had any problems, other than a few apps were slow to open the first time I used them after the upgrade.
  4. No no and no. That means comfort, comfort means they stay longer. A cot set up next to that unit will discourage this staying a "bit" thingie.
  5. FWIW, if you want/need to keep a bedroom option available, consider a Murphy bed. I've done two of them, and SWMBO is pleased. They take up about 16" deep floor space and fold down to full/queen size when needed. A neat project too.
  6. A grandma calls her granddaughter and says, "Please come over here and help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to get started." The granddaughter asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?" Grandma replies, "According to the picture on the box, it's a rooster." Her granddaughter decides to go over and help with the puzzle. She lets him in and shows him where she has the puzzle spread all over the table. She studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to her and says, "First of all, no matter what we do, we're not g
  7. As the finishing room comes along I continue to focus on having finishing supplies in it that I typically use. Brushes, trays and such I have taken care of with my supply cabinet build. Now I need a place, or places to store actual finish stuff. Started with 1qt containers. The window faces the back of my yard so no big deal blocking it off, no loss of direct sunlight. Because this once housed a hot tub I went with storm windows. I could install the correct windows and all, but that cost more than I want to invest at the moment. So I got some 2 inch thick insulation from my neighbor. T
  8. Glad that you renewed the certificate. That is a headache, but MS has been causing me headaches, still causing me headaches trying to block links that it does not approve, wanting to set up something to the clouds and such. I am about to boot it out of here and install Linux only. Google Earth no longer works with MS 10. Had to delete/uninstall it and now have access only to the cloud. I get notices from Academia and when I try to reach the document, I get messages that I am in the wrong section or aisle. So, MS is still part of my problem, even after the updates. And, no mat
  9. Looking good! Walnut is some pretty wood. I agree with Lew, love the contrast.
  10. Yesterday
  11. Larry, I am with you all the way. I pull my Shopsmith outside and let it fly. One day, I was sanding some cedar. When I finished, I looked around in the air and red dust was everywhere. The neighbors closed their windows. LOL
  12. Artie, we can be the board of brokers.
  13. ...How about..."Help me break the bank"?... ...Or "How to PO SWMBO"?
  14. I completed the setup today and am pleased with the results. Almost no sawdust left on the table after cutting. Most importantly none in my face. The last photo is after cutting two passes on a piece of poplar. Paul
  15. Lufkin used to make wonderful wooden folding rulers. My grandpa had one in 1952 that was old and the tips broken. But, it was a quality ruler. That steel ruler you have I used to use during my apprentice years in Graphic Arts. It is real quality and the measurements are right on. When I left Graphic Arts, I had to return the ruler and I have looked for one for years. I think a nice brass brush will clean up the file and the dividers. Wonderful find.

    I love that! The contrasts between the sap wood and the dark walnut are beautiful. Can't wait to see it when the grain pops from the finish!!!
  17. i haven't really tried to clean them up yet. no visible marking on the divider or the small file, although some may show up later. The rule is nice and heavy; good quality.
  18. @p_toad, Nice save, I had to look at your location. I used to get some Delta stuff from a guy that went by the handle "Dumpster Diver".
  19. Steve, Thank you.
  20. That situation would be fixed with a steel-toe work shoe to the face.
  21. I'll remind you that there have been a couple of threads (sorry) on thread storage in the forums if you need any project ideas Artie.

    I got the walnut log cut in half and one bowl rough turned.
