    It's FRIDAY!!! - 3/29/2013 Edition

    My wife and I both have eye appointments first thing tomorrow. Will probably take her to her favorite brunch place after. It's supposed to be in the 60's here all weekend, so going to try and get some yard work done and work some more on the doors/drawers for the vanity. Have a couple of welding projects I'd like to get done as well.

    What's everyone else got going?

    Got a bball game to watch tonight. ROCK CHALK! Tomorrow I will probably get into the shop to finish up the DC hook up and get to turning some of the walnut I picked up last week since it's supposed to rain all day. If no rain, yard clean up as things are starting to poke out of the ground around here. Sunday, church then brunch with the inlaws and an egg hunt with my side of the family after that. Hopefully watching another Jayhawk game on Sunday afternoon....did I say ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK??

    I'll be trying to fence in the garden so those pesky deer and rabbits will have to work a lot harder to get to my veggies. I know the deer can easily jump a 4' fence, but it makes me feel good anyway. I'm thinking Tractor Supply goat panels for the base http://www.tractorsupply.com/en/stor...ft-l-x-48-in-h and if that doesn't work I'll top it with plastic netting. I don't think the rabbits can get through a 4" square?

    I'm thinking they probably can. may want to roll some chicken wire around the base (16" - 24" wide) or consider panels with smaller openings towards the base: http://www.tractorsupply.com/en/stor...h?cm_vc=-10005

    Even that one may be too big for smaller youth rabbits.

    They can. I finally surrounded my garden with 1/4" harddware cloth last year. 4' tall hardware cloth, Folded out a foot at the bottom. Worked great. Kept the rabbits out AND seemed to actually keep other rodents at bay as well, for whatever reason. First year I didn't have a bunch of tomatoes all chewed up by 'something'.

    I'm going to 'Bradley-ize' my shop this weekend... I can't make any cutting boards at the moment so instead I'm going to de-clutter the rest of the shop, and might even make a couple of spoons.

    A little busy this weekend on the day job. But maybe a little more painting on the shop trailer walls. Still thinking about roof insulation.

    Gonna see if I can find a board to practice on my jointer. It had been "set aside" for a while & I never did learn to use it properly-just haven't practiced. Once I get the TS, that should open up some projects. Surprised to see how much I miss having a TS, even an old one, it's my go-to machine to start things off. Once the new one (new to me) is in I'll probably make a new router table from Carol's book.

    Actually taking today, Friday, off! I spent the last two days crawling around our attic doing a couple of projects I've put off for months. It's much easier to do some wiring and such with LOML home all the time to help. These old bones are gonna need a couple of days to get over what I had to put them through!

    Saturday, I'll try to do a little more shop organizing and work on the platform bed I started this time last year.

    Sunday, the forecast is for a little rain, so I might just sit on the deck and watch the drops fall!
