    Whats on tap for this Weekend? (11/06/09)

    Don,

    Forgive me if I'm stealing your idea here, but just wondering what folks have planned for this weekend?

    I'm still waiting for my hardwood lumber to show up. I'm hoping it will get here today so I can get started on a dining room table and chairs.

    I almost feel like a traitor responding to this post and not waiting for Don to post his

    My wifes birthday party tonight. Some of my daughters are coming over to cook her dinner and dessert. Saturday the kids are coming over to help with the lawn work while I retire to the basement to work on the Hall butler I'm making for my youngest daughter. Sunday my son and others from his unit are being honored at the Radisson Hotel here in Manchester by a Veterans group so that will take up much of the day.

    I'm hoping to finish up my shop reorganization, or at least this go around.

    Then I have a large turning project/commision to get back at...or started.

    Still trying to get settle in the town home. Hopefully I can borrow my buddies trailer and get some tools moved over from storage. I've been hanging pictures and shelves all week and had about all I can stand, need to work on one of my own projects.

    Just called the shipper. Apparently there wasn't enough room on the truck yesterday cause my shipment is TOO BIG!

    But they assured me that as long as I have a check for the shipping that I can give to the driver, they will bring it out today.

    Looks like I'm going to get a workout this afternoon making stickers and stacking wood...

    Since I'm retired, I do a lot of woodworking during the week, so weekends usually involve other activities.

    Friday:
    I'll probably do a couple of steps on a picture frame/stand and maybe practice turning a little something.

    Saturday:
    LOML wants to go to a community garage sale in Boston (that's the second largest Boston in the US) in the morning. Maybe there will be some tools!

    Sunday:
    A day of rest - lounge around for a while. I'll cook breakfast for us like usual, then watch the NASCAR race at Texas.

    I've got some turning to do, a buddy wants me to make some wooden clay pigeons for a departing gift for one of their gun club members, yes, on base, not Japanese.

    Yeah, some turning, and, I get paid for it

    I will attempt to dye back the red I made my shutters down to a more subtle brownish red, and will post before and after pics.
    I have the right coaching, so Im confident I can shade it enough to make myself happy, or Im tossing alot of expensive mahogany.
