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.

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.
