Looks like fun John.

 

I am still mostly in recuperate mode, but I am probably going to go ahead and get that pen done that I have been putting off until I felt better. After that, we'll see how I feel. I might do a lot more this weekend than I am thinking now. :)

today:  taking up some tiles in the bathroom (slowly renovating it, got the tub out a few days ago, then next i'll demo the shower).  after that, start refinishing a pair of old nightstand tops.

 

this weekend:  have a pistol match tomorrow, likely very little else will get done in the shop that day.  sunday:  day of rest.  monday:  start shower demolition.

 

i can always find something to do in retirement (retired at 45!).

Good luck with the pistol match. I have always wanted to get in on one of those but never had the transportation to get to them.

John: Looking Great! You mentioned about it being to dark, when I was re-wiring part of my shop, I wore a head lamp - really helps out. And, it is not even one of the expensive ones - an energizer brand from the big box store for less than $20. Also, they work good for packing out an elk in the dark :) 

 

Steve: That box looks awesome! You sir, are a craftsman.

 

What is on my agenda: Painting the outside wall of the shop where I walled up the garage door. Been prepping and caulking every evening this week. If all goes well, I want to start in on a router storage cabinet and put together my router table.

That's a great idea. I need to get one for many other uses also. I thought I would have at least one light up but I got delayed a bit as I had to make a modification to the new 100 amp panel I put in before I could get power to the new small panel I put in the expansion. 

 

Besides, dark gave me an excuse to stop.;)

IDPA match (local match).  i shoot 2 matches a month.  presently ranked as SharpShooter.  i'll be shooting my Beretta Px4 9mm full size tomorrow, it's my daily carry pistol.  have other ones i can shoot as well in other categories.  it's a lot of fun and gives you a good test of your abilities and your gear's worthiness.

Our sons and families will be here from Tucson. Our home is on 27 acres and we have a range set up in back. Just a couple clay pigeon slingers and a few rotating targets. The boys are pretty good with their 20 gauges. And we shoot several different handguns. They each have a couple Glock 9s and their wives each shoot Walther CCPs. Also 9s. I just bang away with my trusty Colt 357 revolver and my CCW, a Ruger LCR. A neat little hammerless 5 shot revolver.

So, this weekend will be spent with family. I'm sure we'll eat good, go desert riding and sling some lead.

Now that sounds like a fun weekend Gene!

 

My CCW is a Glock 23  40 or a Kimber Micro 9 depending on where I am and what I'm doing,

John, Arizona has always been an open carry state. But, you get strange looks if you carry open into Macys. The little LCR is invisible. But, out in the wilds around here its the 357.

It is cool here too.  Loving it.  Got the bushes trimmed and the debris picked up.  Didn't have any two cycle gas mixed so I did that today.  Blew the debris out in the yard and cut the grass with the bagger attached.  Ready for the weekend.

You guys got lead! CA is headed towards an all out lead ban, we'll be forced to purchase the more expensive steel shot. Not that I really hunted anything, been years since I went bird hunting, but for the folks who do hunt, it may be a tad more expensive soon enough.

Don't get me started on the No Lead hunting bullets. For birds, I can see and understand that, but for their reasons associated around big game hunting, these people are @#!@ #% IDIOTS.

I'm not surprised John.  California bans everything.  Not a thing planned in the shop this weekend.  Cookouts on Saturday and Sunday after church and of course will have to watch my Notre Dame Fighting Irish on the tube Sunday night.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
