    I finished and delivered the tables - pictures in a week or two. I'm hiring a semi-pro to take the pics for me so I can use them in my portfolio. I built a hamper to match my built-ins in the bedroom - pictures after the last coat of finish goes on. Nothing fancy, just a box with a lid. Will put the last coat of paint on an exterior sign frame tomorrow and then install it early next week. And I just started milling a bunch of VG doug fir for some window trim in the living room.

    Let's see, what else. Oh yeah, get ready for my wedding!

    not yet, storms rolled thru about an hour ago. in one area they had about a dozen touchdowns. one small town got beat up pretty bad. only things left on the table, is to plane and cut the new apron part, cut the notches for the table irons, shellac and assemble the base, fit the base to the top, take the top to be sanded flat, finish the top, and final assembly. just in time to bring it to the fair.

    Maloof-a-like table finish is still curing, waiting for rubout. Milled some stock for some picture frame ideas. Got a pile out of the scrap bin and stacked by type on a table ready to play with some more box ideas. In the back of my mind is whatever comes next for the house; dresser, coffee table, bedframe or some such.

    About all I have on the flatwork horizon is some shop stuff...a new benchtop (made from salvaged 2x construction lumber) for a steel cabinet, and a new base for one of my dry grinders to accept the Tormek jigs is all that comes to mind. Lathe-wise, I'll be concentrating on smaller stuff like potpourri and paperclip bowls for the next week or so as I get stocked up for a show in Malibu weekend after next. (I'm already pretty well set on bigger pieces.)

    I've gotten some backlog turning done, cleaned up a bunch of bowls that were rough turned, some of them turned out quite nicely!

    I've also been working on a new little turning project, quite cool idea I borrowed from elsewhere and will show off when I get more done.

    Otherwise, I'm just slowing rusting away, as it is rainy season here.....
