    Greenhouse build

    I like the looks of this style. Better snow load handling over the typical high tunnel. I have the 12' hoop bender from Johnny's and want to try a 12' x 25' in my garden but haven't figured out where I want to put it. I think you can also get polycarb panels to skin them with for more...

    I advocated for working from home at the last engineering firm I worked at. During a negotiation for a raise, the boss caved in and it saved me an hour and a half of commute time, plus more money. I could log in to the company servers and collaborate on line and on the phone as necessary...

    Quick garden update

    Great garden! Are you keeping busy canning and freezing what the critters left you? I could see some landscape fabric in your future.

    Still pulling weeds in the garden. Overrun by cucumbers and tomatoes, so need to find some neighbors who like to pickle/can.

    Beall Wood Buffing System

    You're going to like the results, Dave. Agree with the others on using Ren wax instead of carnuba. Also don't use white diamond on porous woods as it gets into the pores and won't buff out. Good idea to get extension tubes for your buffs so you can get into the inside of large pieces.

    I'm still above the grass

    Glad to have you back, Frank and glad the missus made it through too. Hope you both manage to stay out of the ER for a few more years.

    Still trying to wrestle the garden back from the weeds, snakes and rabbits. We have another week to go in our self imposed quaranteen before we venture out for some essentials. My very thoughtful daughters made sure we came home to a refrigerator full of our favorite foods, so we are all set...

    What to do with this???

    Charley, thanks for the mention of the ticking stick. I watched a couple of videos and can see where one might come in handy, then I went back through the photos to try and find what you were talking about. I think what you thought was a ticking stick to the right of the scraper on top of the...
