    Good productive day

    Had a good day in the lab. Man it is SOOO nice to be back to wood working and not restoring machines!

    • I finished surfacing and rough sizing a lot of the walnut for the Wine Cabinet
    • Glued up 6 panels that will become the raised panels
    • Made a set of Push block so the Mother Hens wouldn't worry about me.
    • I finished up the 8 cauls i started yesterday.

    If you have not guessed,I am unemployed at the moment. School is starting back and it is DEAD SLOW. Even the solicitors are not calling. I think my phone rang once all day and it was a price shopper. I am not nor never will be the cheapest either.

    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Feel good to smell a bit of sawdust for a change, huh? We'll be watching to see the wine cabinet progress.

    Boy I wish I had that problem, right now I got so much to do. The running joke is, I'll catch up on my sleep when I'm dead. Seriously though, enjoy it while it lasts.
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Glad to hear you're enjoying yourself Jeff. I just finished doing a bathroom reno and it was very satisfying.

    The quote above .... so true, so true ... being the cheapest only brings the cheapest customers and gives you no profit to either do or stand behind some decent work. Kudos to you for holding the line!!

    Glad to see you remember how to use the tools. It is always nice to have a day or two like that once in awhile.
