    Well it's friday and another weekend is upon us. So What R Ur week end plans ?

    I had to go down to Tucson today so I'm a little late posting this. What interesting projects ya'll got planned for the weekend.

    I'll be finishing up the Kitchen table restoration and finishing up the benches I was commisioned to make. I'f I get time I'll start on twin Cradle I am going to restore. The grandaughter will also want me to help her with her house so I've got a full weekend ahead of me.

    So what are ya'll go to do.

    I've got a big elm bowl in progress on the lathe, and if I get off my duff I've got some flatwork projects to do. I finally uncovered my tablesaw this week, so I have no more excuses.

    I'll also be working on a website for a buddy of mine. More on that later.

    uncovering your tablesaw is one of the first signs of recovery vaughn, come back from that dark, spinny side, follow your tablesaw back to the light...

    as for me, i'll be working all day tomorrow on the grandfather clock.

    Hoping the house will show a lot myself, but getting out of it anyway and checking out a museum. Haven't been to the Nelson Atkins Museum since I was about 16. Need to get over to the in-laws and try and get their new mailbox post up for them and start picking up the FIL's shop for him to get started on a new entertainment center project. He's coming off of heart surgery and time to start getting back at it whether he likes it or not.

    Vaughn, did you figure out that electrical problem or planning to save on morning coffee for a while?

    There are three words in your question that are usually not associated with me: Planning, Morning, and Coffee. I try to avoid all three. No progress beyond switching the hot and neutral legs on the old circuit, and that still didn't solve the original problem of a hot ground. It's been pretty warm in the shop during the day, and electrical troubleshooting is much easier under daylight, so further investigation will have to wait for a bit cooler weather. Since I suspect it's been this way for a while, I figure I don't have to rush into finding a fix.

    Loml and my daughter are going to get the goat weighed for FFA this morning and I am babysitting Sammy to make sure he doesn't chew on his stitches. We will probably go in the shop, turn the a/c on and I will work on the dust collector ductwork.
