  1. We spent Saturday moving the older granddaughter into her dorm room at college. She’s the first to fly from the next. Her two younger sisters (13 and 16) spent the rest of the weekend with us. Shopwise, I’m working on a poplar shelving unit for my daughter-in-law.
  2. Absolutely buy both collets. As for having multiple tools, apparently I have exceeded my limit on routers. I now have seven. According to my wife I have a router fetish.
  3. I spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon on a 6/12 pitch roof tearing off shingles and repairing eave plywood. My son, nephew and I always assist each other on big home projects and it is my nephews turn so off comes the roof. I’m paying for it though. This week I’m building ear ring stands for a fall show.

    Ding, ding, ding. Winner, winner chicken dinner. If you look at the larger podium, I shortened the pad somewhat. Looks better too.
  5. That’s clearly the best news I’ve heard all day. Prayer does work.
  6. I’ll let the experts answer this but my novice suggestion would be to make the base from cypress.
  7. I reversed the grain so that the glue up wouldn’t bow.

    I am pleased but This isn’t the first time I’ve used this technique. Last year, I made a sign on a communion table using the same lamination.

    Rolling Table

    All of my wood comes from Frank Miller Lumber in Union City, Indiana. A great company to deal with.
  10. Five coats of semi gloss wipe on poly.

    I don’t know about the steeped in history part of it but I did not have to made a gavel.

    Lecterns and Podiums

    I was asked to build meeting room furniture for our local Elks lodge. Three lecterns, a podium and a center table.

    The verbiage was cut in with a Carvewright. Red oak laminated over walnut.

  15. I laminated a piece of red oak over a piece of walnut and planed the oak to 1/4 inch. I have a friend that bought a Carvewright system but doesn’t “do” computers so it sits in my shop. At $2000, the Carvewright is a poor mans CNC router. I cut the letters into the walnut to get the effect.
  16. I finished up the last piece for our local Elks lodge. Going to spend the week installing security cameras.
  17. Fred, I saw that Wapak had a big shindig and I thought about you.
  18. This is for the gray haired or no haired folks out there. Fifty years ago this evening, I was sitting in my girlfriend’s home with my then girlfriend, her mother and sister when Neil Armstrong stepped foot on the moon. Oddly, that seemed like just yesterday. Where were you 50 years ago?
