Sort of fixed my lathe motor hinge and got the old woman to cough up $100 at harbor freight for a brand spanking new 8 gallon compressor and then the most important thing, spent an hour clearing a path to put the compressor inside the shop instead of the driveway. Path no longer exist..I'll now be in debt to her which is just short of owing money to the mafia..

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

At least I know my sharpening skills are on point. I don't know much 'bout workin' wood yet, but I do know a thing or two about blades.
Credit for not including injury p0rn pics.... my last chisel injury was right between thumb and forfinger in that spot that takes exactly 4 years, 7 months, 2 weeks, 6 days and 13 hours to heal.

Ouch!

I tried not to go to the ER for this one but 30 minutes of gushing blood later, I figured it wasn't going to stop and I would rather not die from a small hole in my hand.

It's a real bummer though. Now I got a good week before I can start my project again. I was finishing up my saw horses so I could start the process of building a workbench when I did this.

I was going to glue up the top with these nice few days of weather today and tomorrow but I guess not... Not much warm weather left to do this and I was hoping I could do it outside.

Oh well. Guess I'll just hope my basement is dry enough. Lol

I had to trim the door edges as the doors did not close during the summer. While I waited for the paint to dry between coats, I found a piece of oak in the shop I turned into a ledge. Too much time on my hands.

Cut it twice, measure once and it's still too short.

I finished hanging cleats on both sides of my tiny new shop. Ready to start building storage boxes for tools and supplies.


Three table saws... of course that isn't enough.

Jointed and planed on some beautiful western red cedar , 19' boards that my neighbor had shipped to.
I will be building a stripper kayak ...definitely out of my comfort zone ( building and using .... A bucket list thing I guess).
My neighbor and friend is a life long accomplished woodworker and has started building human powered boats lately ( they look like works of art).
Funny how are backgrounds are so different we would have never met in life if not for being neighbors and the love of woodworking.

Knot Stumped ...just confused once in a while.

I spent the day in my recliner watching football and baseball. One of the privileges of being sick from chemo. Sometimes I can get away with doing absolutely nothing.

Kerrys, I hear you and I'm with you as much as I can be. Cancer sucks. Stick with us. We need you.

Finally got power back, after 4 days without. No damage to our house.
Matthew is gone, did a little damage to Mother-n-law's place, which I've already repaired.
One generator, so I've been running it back and forth between M-n-law's place and ours, keeping the stuff in the fridges and freezers good.

Hopefully tomorrow my finger will be repaired enough that I can finish my saw horse and start the glue up of my tabletop.

Just my luck to injure myself on my very first project and get set back at least a week.

As I'm winding down using up my left over wood before I break my shop down in Feb.

I'm getting it ready to ship back to the states in April/ May which means the tools have to and pass a agricultural inspection ( wood dust free) prior to shipment.

I'm making small things like picture frames and box jointed boxes using some new picture frame bits and a box joint bit I bought from infinity. But that's about it. Nothing exciting going on in my shop for a while.

I'm also spending time on the net looking at shops getting ideas for setting up my new one I'll have in the states.

Looking fwd to retiring so I can spend more time in it.

Wow that's interesting, I never heard of wood needing to be dust free before. In CA there is a wood tax and I'm curious you have to pay anything like a tariff on it.

I'm making a pumpkin for my sweetie. She found a craft project and asked me to make one for her. It just so happens I have some reclaimed pallet boards (runners and boards) so this one is a freebie!

I ran them across the jointer a couple of times on the flat sides and one edge just to make them a little easier to glue up and have a presentable front side.

Epoxying up some PVC column wraps. Epoxying so one side is open, ready to go on the post and making sure it is nice and square for the base wrap that will likely go on it.

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

Finished re-working a 30 year old porch swing and re-hung it under the pagoda made for it.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Went out to south Shreveport and helped Tim at Cut & Dry Sawmill cut 375 bd. ft. of Walnut, most of it for me. It took most of the morning but it was a blast and the smell of Walnut in the Fall air is just simply wonderful!! The 4/4 will be finished drying around Thanksgiving and the 10/4 will be ready around Christmas.
