    Scrippity Scrappity Scraps!

    Arrrgh, Why do I collect so many!

    Did a purge and got a bunch of kindling wood for next year at any rate!

    And it turned into a full on shop cleaning. Vacuumed up everything and made a little more room in there. Amazing how nice it is when that happens.

    Been doing a little of that this weekend myself. Been purging a bunch of stuff and got enough room for a project car or two now.

    A clean, neat shop is a happy shop.

    I'm going to get happy one of these days.

    See, you set a good example.

    Enjoy,

    It's good to keep scrap... I had a couple in my booth this weekend and they bought an orange and white spectraply peppermill... they also liked a pair of margarita glasses I had in purple heart, but they wanted them in the O&W spectraply also... just looked and found I have enough scrap from the last few peppermills that I can make them a set of 4 of the margarita glasses... see, sometimes you need scrap.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Hardwood cutoffs, I'm still pretty much keeping. I still have no idea why I keep the small pieces of construction lumber and such. But, got it all taken care of!
