    OK, we're waiting...enough speculating! What?
  2. I seem to have a thing for box joints, found this article on making a jig... https://www.woodcraft.com/media/W1siZiIsIjIwMTgvMDUvMDIvMTEvMzEvMzgvNDYzLzgzX2ZwX0JveF9Kb2ludF9KaWdfRklOQUwucGRmIl1d/83_fp_Box-Joint-Jig_FINAL.pdf?sha=5f9fd98fe2a3ec3e First run, my old dado set wasn't making a smooth cut, so ordered the Freud set noted in the article. The two-fer is a pretty neat idea. Did a trial with 1/4" (a bit too sloppy), and the 3/8" (too tight - probably push all the glue out.) Some small adjustments and I'll try again tomorrow. On another note, I had made slider (barn) doors into my basement shop from a couple of old fir doors. I was wondering how to keep them closed. Found some round RE magnets with a hole in them, so I made shallow holes in the edges with a Forstner bit, and screwed a washer in the other door. Works pretty good. I'm always looking for an alternative to the big A. Found a PA company that specializes in magnets of all shapes and sizes, and quick ship too. Hope it's OK to share this site: https://www.kjmagnetics.com/proddetail.asp?prod=RE22CS-P

    Good Clean Fun

    #6 - easy if you've made peanut butter cookies, #3 & #18 - vaguely familiar, #19 - no, but my grandson will love that one!
  4. You can always revert back to your old methods.
  5. Aren't some of the dedicated primers (Kilz, Bin, ...) shellac based?
  6. Is there enough reveal to put a 3/16" or 1/4" skin on the end panel?
  7. That happened to me once with a car. Turned out to be corrosion on the battery cables. Cross your fingers!
  8. All along, I've had some suspicions about the numbers of reported cases. It seems there are so many other agendas out there that slant any reporting. And I've wondered about false positives, asymptomatic positives, and falsifying records for financial reasons. Then there's the questions. My wife had a medical appointment recently and one of the screening questions was "are you having any respiratory issues?" Well, yes, every day for the last 5 years! There's an interesting piece in the NYPost that discusses that... https://nypost.com/2020/10/17/how-the-media-is-misreporting-covid-19s-death-toll-in-america/
  9. I can't blame her for thinking that!
  10. John, I had a similar dream several years ago. I was looking for an early 50s chevy pickup - a rare early memory of my dad taking me somewhere in one like that. So, my always-patient wife rode 3 hours with me to look at one that seemed decent and in our budget. It only took one drive around the block to get it out of my system. It drove like an old truck - duh! On the way home I told her that I had an immediate case of buyers remorse without having to buy it! Of course, there were many advances in the comfort level of trucks in that decade. But they're out there, so ya never know! Jim

    We have rarely used absentee ballots. I like the feel of operating the lever, which we will do this year. This reliance on the USPS makes us uneasy.
  12. Perhaps an expandable shower rod, or a closet pole set in sockets at the ends??
  13. They must have trained at a DMV! Hope it works out ok.
  14. A beautiful fall day in central NY. A little outside work, the a ride in the old convertible. The rest of the weekend - haven't been informed yet.
