    Not woodworking but shop work

    Tonight's labors in the shop.
    I had an order for 10 of these last weekend so tonight was the night to get-r-done.
    The last pick is of all but 5 of last years unfinished stock finished up and ready for sale this weekend.
    The last 5 are not going to get finished unless a custom order for burning comes in.
    The seventh pic is of that bent up window control arm for the jeep. It hung out in the forge for a few minutes and I straighten it right out good as new.

    So what is the metal stock for that you are bending?
    That's not even a smile! That's just a bunch of teeth playing with my mind!

    I am thinking heavy duty tent stakes. Or tie down stakes for bears for the "bear wrassling" at his rondevous!
    The engraved mugs look great!

    Looks like they are strong enough Chuck nice to see you still have a stake in things.
