Was supposed to help a friend construct a base for a "wishing well" for his front yard, but he was unable to make it.   Did a bit of work to get it started after the materials run yesterday.   Wrapping up a build of bunk beds for dolls.


Saturday back to the theater shop for some more work on SpongeBob set.


Rain preventing me from mowing the yard.  Drat.


For 25+ years the woodworking club has been sending toys, 800-1200 a year, to a charity in Appalachia.  We have (sadly) been informed that they are unable to take more.  They have some left from last year and the kids are more interested in video games than shop-built toys.  Thinking back to my childhood and how few toys I had.  We were not poor, but not well-off either.  In early years we were told, "Without these toys, many of the children would have no Christmas present."  (oh, well)
