Once again, no real woodworking stuff this weekend as what I am doing is mostly construction for my new addition. Still I got to use a lot of my tools this weekend to make up some trim around my windows. Radial arm saw, jointer, planer, bandsaw, biscuit jointer, etc, etc, etc...using all these tools certainly felt like woodworking even if it was just going to be nailed onto a house some place.
It also felt good to spice up my trim job just a bit too. I added some curves, some angles and some flares on the corner returns, the corner boards and around the doors and windows to give this house a custom look. Still nothing as fancy as gingerbread, on this house it would not work. Its going to look real good when I am done I think, a real custom looking, high quality job, but its going to slow down the shingling a lot. There is a lot of odd shaped shingles to cut out.
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!"
