  • productive saturday.....
    All and all considered, I had a pretty good day in the shop. I had no real focus or plan to follow. All I wanted to get done was the shellac on the 3 boxes. A big chunk of the day I didn't get pics of and that all happened in the morning. I started working with the intent of stopping but I kept on at it.

  • Moving "Stuff" in the Shop
    I've wanted to sell the last bench build, in fact it was built with plans to sell, that time may have passed.

The dinner out was impromptu due mostly to my wife being stressed out from the last week. It cut short my shop time but I do make concessions on that. For a good reason of course.before leaving I cleared the workbenchI didn't put... Read more
