    That's a year's worth of work for some of us here.

    I'll beat Don to it, "no pictures, didn't happen".

    You are one busy beaver.

    weather or no weather, i got some stuff done today. i drilled the divots for the 12 tic tac toe and last man boards (9 divots for the tic tac toe, and 15 for the last man boards), and drilled the holes for 2 of the 12 large cribbage boards (more than 250 holes each). not too bad for about 3 hours of work. also broke the cheap drill bit in the drill bit assembly. replaced it with a good one. going to hit it again after the wife is in school tomorrow, and get the rest of the cribbage boards drilled.

    Good Grief...Don't you know that there are only 24 hours in a day (at least here on earth)?

    Enjoy,

    well, with the return of the nice weather, i got a little bit busy again. opened the box with the hard maple blanks, and i was happy! all hard maple, not like that other stuff (which will be put to good use later). all told, i finished up cutting blanks for 5 rolling pins, 7 meat mallets, 6 potato mashers, and out of the other stuff i already had on hand, blanks for 4 tapered rolling pins, 6 honey dippers, 4 small spurtles, 6 large spurtles, and 6 fruit muddlers. when i was done with that, i did the finishing cuts on the edges for the last man, and tic tac toe game boards, and drilled the holes for 4 of the large cribbage boards, with another 8 to go. i'll finish those and drill the holes for the small cribbage boards tomorrow. on a lighter note, i showed my dad (he's the old guy on the left), and his friend (the even older guy on the right), one of the tic tac toe boards, and like a couple of kids, the got the marbles out and had at it. got the pics this time....

    cold and rainy almost all day today, but thank goodness everything i needed to do today could be done inside. finished off the drilling of the ash and walnut large cribbage boards, and drilling of the maple, brazilian cherry, and ash small cribbage boards. when it's nice outside again, i will be trimming them up like the last man, and tic tac toe boards. tomorrow is the day i start turning of the blanks i cut yesterday, and the pics will be posted in the spinny area.
