    I've been trying to pass a 5.8mm kidney stone since last Sunday morning :( Lots of fluids but no pain pills. They totally mess me up. Just been hanging around the house watching TV or reading. I'll try to get the lawn cut later today. Maybe all the bouncing around on the tractor will get the...

    My new project is going to the dump !!!

    Literally :D Our Lions Club collects used eyeglasses and recycles them for those in need. We had a collection spot at our dump for townsfolk to drop off their donations.

    Scared the heck out of me

    I was working on my router table routing out the prayer/concerns card holders for the back of the pews at my church (I know, I know, pics to come soon). I noticed the cut was going pretty slow and could smell a little smoke. I stopped, turned off the machine and saw smoke rising from the...

    Doll Beds

    3 of my grand daughters asked me (Santa :D) for beds for their American Girl doll. Each wanted a different color of course. I found half baked plans online for a fairly simple design and after a few changes came up with these. I'm having a tough time getting the Valspar spray paint to cure...

    Cutting boards

    I put together 2 quickie cutting boards as "yankee swap" gifts for tonights Lions club Christmas party. I'm not sure if they are appropriate gifts for this kind of exchange but hopefully they like them. I had some curly maple scraps left over and thought that they would be of good use on these.

    Swap received :):)

    Man o man Ryan, you make good stuff :score::score: These are like my fancy carving knives that I only use on very special occasions and never ever let anyone else use them. I did have to try them out though. I had to lay out some mortises on a Christmas gift for a friend. I'm almost tempted...

    How would you make this ??

    Picture a jar like this displayed horizontally. It is 17" long, 6" square sides, corners are rounded. The real jar is super old, clear smooth glass, and a lady at church wants me to make a display stand for it. I need some ideas so, how would you design the stand ????

    Swap stuff pics

    I went with the safety and storage theme this time. Sanding disc holder, 2 push sticks, jointer edging push stick, and one of the store bought push blocks work really well. Lowes had them on an incredible clearance a few months back and I bought 6 or 8. Hope whomever get them finds them useful.

    Gone for awhile

    Been in the hospital since last Saturday night. Short version is I beat the lung cancer diagnosis of last February (2 hospitals on 4 specialists misdiagnosed. Long and very stressful story) but since then I've been gaining weight despite being on a strict diet. Swollen legs, stomach, arms, and...
