    Hoping to actually get some time in turning...haven't since before Christmas. The shop floor looks naked right now without any curlies all over it.

    Too cold for the shop. I need about 8 hours of 60-65 degrees to get the paint finished up for the mobile base for the saw. It's killing me that I'm just sitting here waiting!!!!
    I have to work tomorrow am. LOML has been looking for a headboard for the guest bed. Has located one about 50 minutes away on CL that matches our master bedroom furniture. If the measurements look like it will fit in her minivan, we will probably take a road trip to look at, bring back if we like it. She's also looking at a computer armoire. Both of these things are cheaper than I can buy the wood to make, and if she's happy with them, then I'm happy. Other than that, it will be my job to keep the fireplace going. Jim.

    Too cold for shop. Snow is coming down with an (another?) ice storm threatening. Daughter and her dogs are visiting. Just trying to kill time. Ice storm possibility is scary. Tried starting the generator yesterday. Couldn't. Battery is dead and I hurt my already damaged shoulder trying the pull start.
    Watching boring TV, spending time on 'puter. Distractions preventing writing. Promises to be a fun filled weekend. Not.

    Hi, I just joined the forum a few days ago and wanted to introduce myself. I started woodworking last year because I was tired of looking for furniture and not being able to find what we needed. I've built a couple things from modified plans and a couple from pictures and my wife continues to come up with new projects for me to work on.

    I've started working on a table for the kids to sit at for snacks and projects to keep the dining room table from getting covered in glue and stuff.

    I've got all the pieces cut and will be assembling it this weekend using pocket screws. It will look similar to this: http://www.greatpubtables.com/pub-ta...ddlestools.cfm

    I look forward to reading more on these helpful forums.

    Edit:
    I'm in Minnesota and have a heated two car garage but just moved the second car into the garage so now I barely have enough space to operate my table saw and assemble my projects but it's better than having to scrape my windows every morning.

    Welcome Dan to Family woodworking. Glad to have you here. When you get some time why don't you post a shop tour. We love pictures..

    My weekend begins today at 2:00 when I meet my friend at the annual Washington State "hunt, fish and kill show" (officially known as the "Sportsman Show"). I'll be looking for a new pair of gloves to wear while I steelhead fish and perhaps a new rod tube for my 8 weight. After the show, I'm taking my wife to her favorite restaurant to belatedly celebrate her birthday.

    Saturday I'm going to work on a small project designed to hold my dog's food and water dishes in one place.

    Sunday, who knows? If I can talk someone else into joining me, perhaps church. If not, probably just puttering around.

    Wife said this morning she wants a date night tonight. Ok Friday evening planed now I will hunt tomorrow for the last deer hunting day of the season. No game on this weekend so I will start a painting on Sunday.My son said something about state meet for wrestling and I need to find out if it is this weekend.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
