Actually swept the floor in the shop.. Did you know there's concrete under all that sawdust and shavings? Amazing!
Now I can walk from one side of the shop to the other without sucking in my gut to avoid getting jabbed..
Next sweeping is due November 14th 2072..

I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
Impressive, huh?

Found something I lost months ago...the top of my work bench. Made 2 small racks to sit on the side of my saw stand to hold the fences and the miter gauge.

Just because I had absolutely nothing better to do today I made a few cheapo sanding tools..a block and a sanding board. I have to use rolled sandpaper for the board, but that's ok. It's a bit too long.

Got my Odd Job in the mail from Woodpeckers today.

Tact is for people not witty enough to be sarcastic.

New here ... haven't even introduced myself, but I did do something today, so I figured I'd chime in.
Unpacked my new vacuum system, mixed up some Cactus Juice and started the stabilization of some knife handle blanks.
No pics yet, sorry.

I put 3 coats of conversion varnish on the last cabinet door of a kitchen I just made 30 doors and 11 drawer fronts for. The door was on a penisula cabinet that was hidden by the stove. But you could see enough of it so it needed to be replaced. The "door" was just one stile and a pc of Oak plywood with the same profile as the doors had. The plywood had an 1/8" of Oak on the edge so the profile would be solid wood.

Then I went to my wood supplier and picked up some 5/4 pine boards, cut them up and made a 30 x 64" blank for a countertop that will have 2 1/4" breadboard ends.

Then I scuff sanded 2 White Oak running boards that I had made. They have 2 coats of West System epoxy on them, with a bit of yellow dye mixed in. Both coats were sanded hard to flatten out the grain. I had already put 1 coat of Pettit Varnish on it. I scuffed that and applied another coat of varnish to both of them.

Before:


After:









Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.
Finishing is 3 parts chemistry and 1 part VooDoo http://lrgwood.com

Started my screened in porch.

Built a new house two years ago and moved two years ago the first of July. Last summer was just a relax and "catch my breath" summer. This year we are finishing the things that need to be finished. The screen porch was not a necessity to move in but its time we get it going.
Went a picked up some nice Selkirk cedar that is very nice. and am going to use the Screen tight system to adhere the screen. I will try to get some photos and see it I can figure out how to post them here.
Got framing portion completed. We will add a coat of Sikkens to make it easier to finish after screen is installed.

Finally finished a pallet map I've been working on for almost 2 years. It's the daily progression of a wildfire we had in 2014. Made from a pallet damaged in the fire.

Treated myself to a full pint of Kroger private selection Raspberry Sorbet.
Anyone who doesn't like raspberry sorbet really ought to be slapped daily and twice on Sundays..
Oh yeah..layed on a layer of Danish oil on my bench, but it doesn't speak Danish yet and I'm not going to eat it for breakfast..

I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.

We were putting the last coat of paint on my display case door and it was hanging to dry - wind came up, took the door off the drying hook and gently (yeah right) lowered it to the ground where it decided to break at all the joints.

Humpty Dumpty and all the kings horses and men couldn't get this back together either.

That's a month of work down the drain :(

Gotta make a new door piece this week.

The tools don't make the craftsman....
