  1. Hi John1.. Larry Jenkins here. If my old memory is any good, I think I was one of the first dozen or so to sign up. Had many good years learning things, offering some techniques and project images and just had a ball with everyone that accumulated on your site. Out of woodworking now due to my wife's COPD which is sensitive to the inherent woodworking "smells." Doing a lot of home designing now on my old XP confuser. You are maintaining the right way to run a very successful and interesting woodworking site. No other like it The Gang is just awesome. Let's go for another 10! Larry
  2. Thank you Al.. Yeah, us old farts need some luvin too. I peruse the site every now and then trying to find one of my old posts to jack up my old ego. Ran across the old one about applying poly with old nylon socks with the "Dude." Yeah.. still recall the phone call that night. I assume you are now quarantined in your home. What better time to dust off Niagara? Thanks for remembering.. Larry
  3. John1.. Larry Jenkins here. Ever build that cabin? I still have the original plans and the revisions on my Canvas draw program.
  4. That's nice. Would like to see the video.. Wine is so good for old farts.. Larry
  5. Because you asked.. Many of you know I design houses. I am building a 1/2" = 1 foot model of my latest one. Over 3000 square feet, but quite unusual. it's a home with a captive inner yard that opens to the sky. There is a 5 foot perimeter inside hallway all around the outside area. I'm making it out of Balsa wood. Had to make many jigs to ensure parts are consistent. Will try to post images when I get it done. Not bad for an 87 year old fart.. Larry
  6. Both. I bought the Niagara kit and soon discovered that it was a little over my head. Sold the started kit to Al Berube. He has brought it along very nicely. Email him on this site. Larry
  7. Happy Birthday ol timer! Hope you had a great day Larry!

  8. Absolutely fantastic, Al.. Way beyond my capabilities. Don't give up. Ever.. I like the glass enclosure idea. Keep posting images as you go. We like progress status images. Larry
  9. Sorry John1. Read it the wrong way. Didn't know your intent. Larry Jenkins
  10. WIN 10 and XP are not even in the same world. Win 10 is not user friendly anymore. Question still stands.. Any way to improve XP? In simple terms an 86 year old can understand? Thank you! Larry Jenkins
  11. Al.. I have a very old large steel square. 2' x 3'. (Maybe smaller.. Too lazy to look.) Besides a fine power wire wheel, what do you use to make 'em shiny again? Larry Jenkins (Niagara?)
  12. No.. But I still use XP for all my Home design drawings. Wish there were a way to speed it up. I also have WIN 10. Any suggestions to improve XP most welcome. Larry Jenkins
  13. I made two new glass covers from Red Oak scrap today. I thought I had some 150 sandpaper to smooth out the surface. Could not find any. Here's the discovery.. I an redoing a half bath and went to the store and bought some of the screen that is used on a pole to sand drywall mud. Why not? Picked up a piece of the sanding screen and used it to finish sand the lids. I was amazed at how easy the screen cut and how smooth the surface was. Holey, so easy to clean. Try it! Larry Jenkins
