  2. No comprende Englis, Kemo Sabe.
  3. I wondered if anyone else had done that. Not that I ever did.
  4. Not as uniform, though. At least not with my BS. I really wanted to see just how thin I could plane, anyway.
  5. Naw, it doesn't melt. It does get squishy, though.
  6. Sorry, Artie. Head colds are nasty. Gator's suggestion is a good one. That, or a good dose of Nyquil. Bourbon tastes better, though.
  7. Wife and I sided our house with vynil. If us two can do it, anyone can.

    Whew, lots of work. But sure worth it. Thanks for the info.
  9. Two more nice ones. Keep this up and Rand McNally will want to hire you.
  10. And, do it rapidly! Rape is illegal in most states. Don't know about raping sizers. That might be ok.

    Another masterpiece! How did you carve it? That's just stunning.
  12. Won't hit 60° today. Cloudy, rain possible. Winds have started....again. Other than that, it's a beautiful day.
  13. Another cloudy, blustery day. Good day to be in the shop. But then, what day isn't? Made some mistakes in my whiskey box prototype. Should just trash it. But, having too much fun fixing it. Found out the DW 735 with the Shelix head can plane walnut to a thickness of 3 playing cards. Great for filling the gaps in my mis cut box joints. But, I'll not be making it a normal practice. still hoping to get some mesquite cut today. Time will tell.
