Now it is where I wanted it. Still figuring this all out.

Had a great day in the shop with Dad. His recovery from the fall is progressing well. His shop – well it is going to take another good couple of days to clear away junk. A fire was going, some might think a little to good as the filter caught fire, but the barn still stands. The shop is just a mess. I did find a cabinet that is sorely under utilized. It now has 2 new shelves in it and most of the blow molded boxes now have a home. The outfeed bench is clear enough that I was able to rip a big panel so that is progress. I was able to, late in the day, get some finish on one of the trivets. WOW!!!! The grain really comes alive. I have pics – now to get them out of the camera. No media reader here so have to go through the camera. Those will be posted soon. I bid you adue presently from the Flint MI area.

Shop clean up continues. Moved about 1000 board feet of lumber yestersday with my brother. 1/2 was cherry, now it is all in one space stickered and drying nice. 1/4 maple and walnut. There was even some black willow. There were a lot of pretty boards passing thru my hands. Dad was out there helping for more than there hours. He did a lot of sitting, but he was pushing it from time to time. He kept the fire going and was cutting stickers for the wood. It was a good day and I think we have a good place for the Lathe near the fire. Work continues, but my time here draws to a close soon.
