    Unbelieveable Wood Working

    I hate to shatter the image of the scrupulous shop. However, here are pics of Glenn and JimB working in my shop this Thurs, Fri and Sat A.M.

    Enjoy,

    JimB

    Yes folks, it's true; this is what my dad's shop looks like when he knows I am coming down to help him with something and he has gotten it "ready". Seriously, I wanted to cut a board to length . . . Do you want to know where you do that in my dad's shop? Certainly not on the tablesaw, that's a storage area. Maybe the bandsaw? Nope, that's covered with everything I had to move off the drill press table so I could drill a couple of holes. There was a small section of unoccupied flat space on the jointer's pork chop guard but, a sanding mop is stored there so it will be handy. You wouldn't want to store it with all the other drill press stuff right next to the drill press in drawers, uh-uh, no way.

    I guess it is his way of thinking outside the box. Now that I think of it, almost everything is outside of the box in his shop . Not true, I'm exaggerating (but not much). All kidding aside and getting back to that board I want to cut to rough length . . . You take the board to a plastic Workmate-like thing outside and do it there!?! I told him I was going to arrange to have it rain INSIDE the shop since that is apparently why this plastic outdoor work surface remains uncluttered . We did get quite a bit of stuff done and had a great visit. When we get together it is like a comedy act; I keep threatening to tape some of it and stick it on You Tube.

    That is because Glenn is here and doing most of the work.

    Actually mine was reasonably pristine---Until we started to do some work.
    My shop is still, definitely, in the "Work in Progress" stage. I just have tools and stuff that have no logical homes. Therefore, no flat surface is safe.

    Enjoy,

    "I must need new glasses, is this an eye test?? you're an eye doctor aren't you???" said Dan Mooney

    To all of you who responded in a similar manner---Remember the "Emperor's Clothes."

    OK, so next time I will try to clean up my grammar. Give me some credit---I did take some pictures. However, it takes some one to take the pictures and the someone who should have been in the picture, Glenn, was up on the roof doing chimney sweep work for his dear old dad, who wanted to stay clean. Therefore we used the Emperor as the live subject.

    Enjoy,

    JimB

    Yeah, in this case it looks the nut fell pretty far from the tree.

    Good to see you two getting in some shop time together. I can only imagine the comedy act that ensued.
