I would have done exactly this:
But I have acquired about 8 more guns so, I really need to get building, the power steering fluid case is trash no way to get it off the wood, it soaked in deep. Guess I could have used power steering fluid for the finish LOL
Sort of a red oil stain. It wouldn't smell that good, but it might look OK? Fathers seem to never stop covering for the mistakes of their children. Common sense is not an inherited trait apparently. My son did as well as I could have expected, but we don't see eye to eye on some things that aren't too important in the "big picture of Life". I've "disowned" him a few times, but only in my mind.
He is my step son. I raised him since he was 7, he is 40 now, he even wanted to change his last name to mine when he was younger so we went through that process, sounds easy but it was rather high priced. I always refereed to him as my son, but he has gotten so stupid lately I let everyone know he is a step son LOL
A example, he got disability from the Army for PTSD so the Army couldn't fulfill his contract, so they gave him a choice, either take $1000 monthly and get re-evaluated every year or take $100,000 severance pay. I told him he might want to take the severance pay because they might say he is cured in a year or two, so he did.
When he got the money it was discussing to watch two people just blow $100,000
Then he got SSDI, he had to take them to court to get it, but he did, the back pay he got from his original filing date amounted to about $50,000. WE had hoped he had learned from his first check not to blow this one but he did.
They went through $150,000 and have absolutely nothing to show for it. Some of the things they bought had value to them but they sold them dirt cheap. When he had the $100,000 he wanted to buy a tractor from me, it was worth about $15,000 but I sold it for $10,000, just to be nice. He traded that tractor straight up for a 1993 Ford conversion van
Things like this are why he is a step son LOL
