    ...and its Friday! Again.

    Where does the time go!

    Anybody ducking the day because of the numerical day?

    Working this weekend. Maybe next weekend I can get some non-day job activities in.

    Just puttering. Rearranging the 'stuff' in the garage so it can be a shop. Trying to figure out how best to cut a complicated half lap joint so the parts match up without gaps....no luck so far.

    I IS!! It's Friday the 13th, it's ca-ca-ca-cold outside, and I'm playing with 220 and sixty amps rewiring the old dairy barn/new work shop. I'm planning to go to the woodturning club trade day tomorrow and I can't go if I'm dead or short!

    I might poke my nose outside later, probably real soon, I'm sure "my" cat is hungry in this cold. While I'm out from under the blankets I'm going to put on a pot of Community Coffee New Orleans Blend with chicory. Tween now and noon I'm planning to just poke my nose out of the covers for another cup of coffee now and then. I hate cold! Around here "cold" can start in the fifties too.

    I didn't even notice it was the 13th until just now. It won't spoil my day. It's colder than Donald Trump's heart outside this weekend, and I have to bake some more bread for a dinner on Saturday night at the church. I've baked 10 loaves so far, so have only 6 or so to make to feed 60 people at our annual Italian dinner. Other than that, I'm coccooning. The high on Sunday is going to be -17. I'm not going anywhere!
    Cheers,

    How is a half-lap joint complicated?

    If Ted's anything like me, I can measure twice, or four times to cut once, and still be a little off square and a little too wide.

    It's this one, Carol. I called it a half lap for want of another name. I can't seem to get a tight joint with my hand tools and am trying to figure out a machine cutting method that will be precise enough. Using some left over Brazilian koa flooring to practice on and plan the finished product to be in cocobolo. Hard wood demands precise cuts and it's just not coming together.

    Ducking 'cause it was -21C (-6F)) at 8AM. Too cold for both me and the scoot.

    @Ted - A marking knife is your friend here. I would make the 'top' piece first. Lay it over the cross piece and mark with a knife. I'd use a Japanese knife that is beveled only one side. Pencil lines are notoriously inaccurate for this sort of task. Good luck.

    Nothing special this weekend...movie night at home tonight and for Valentines...heading out of town to spend some time with friends for a night. The wife doesn't want any chocolate or flowers...just a card and a hug. Think I can manage that!
