    If a grandparent is willing hopefully take my wife out on a date tonight, and this weekend i'm hopeing to get started on the router table now that the babys room has the light installed.
    Focusing your life on only one path does nothing but close your mind to the infinite possibilities that surround us.

    Think out side the box for the box is small, cold, dark, and doesn’t have cookies.

    I'm hoping this weekend the wife and I will be taking off for Western Md to do some fossil hunting and maybe a little skinny dipping.

    Yeah the lousy weather means we gave up our plans for going to the beach today. So instead were abandoning our kids (hey, give them a movie and some frozen pizza in the oven and they're happy) and getting out for a real date night tonight.

    Tomorrow, I'm off to the u-haul dealer to buy a hitch for our van. (keep me in your thoughts, last time I went to the uhaul dealer for a hitch, this happened. Well my wife is coming this time, so we'll have an extra set of eyes.)

    And hopefully I can make good progress on finishing the chair rail that is going into our kitchen nook. Last weekend was clean, patch, prime and 3 coats of paint on the walls, and two coats on the wainscotting. The chair rail and baseboard remain. Though the baseboard will wait until we do the whole floor. Oh yeah, put up the new kitchen blinds also.

    So most of my shop time will be DIY-house time, and not "pure" woodworking. Still got a nightstand to finish and a fishtank stand to build.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    Its been so hot and humid up here for the past 4 or 5 days that I don't really have the desire to do anything. Ive had to run my room air conditioner for a total of 8 days so far this summer.
    Probably a few cook-outs for family and hopefully some shop time. I've been working on replacing my exterior window trim all summer. What a chore.

    cook-out = BBQ for you non yankees

    I'll be working on the never-ending Viking furniture project with my BIL. He's coming over Saturday and spending the night, so we can work both days. Oh joy. Just kill me now. Please.

    I also need to fit a one-piece oak entertainment center into our guest bedroom. In order to get it through the door, I first need to make it into two pieces, then come up with a way to put it back together. It's made with oak ply and solid oak, with brads and glue holding it together. No screws. I will be literally cutting it in half. I'll end up with upper and lower sections, but I think I have a workable way figured out to put the two halves back together.

    And in my spare time I'm working on some website things for a friend. I'm learning that online stores are not quite as easy to set up as they seem.

    Pretty much. Lemme see...one storage chest, eight 3-legged stools, four 4-legged benches (with one more to make, I believe), and five tables ranging from 4' to 8' long. His re-enactment group recently lost a member (they kicked him out...long story), and he owned much of the furniture they had been using. So I'm scrambling to get a bunch of it remade in time for a big event next month. (Danish Days in Solvang CA, and the Viking Encampment is one of the centerpieces of the event.) I'm nearly done with my part of the project, but my BIL still has a lot of embellishment to do. He uses a Rotozip to "carve" designs on some of the pieces...stuff like this bed we made about three years ago:
