So, shop is usable now, limited power resourses, but Xmas will not wait.

I have pallet wood and 2×4’s on the menu this week. Gifts for family, friends and my team at work. With what I have on hand or can collect at minal cost.

Some in various stages.of completion, think I will leave att the sanding and.finishing to be done all at same time. We have been having 70’s temperatures here in central Virginia, so very pleasant weathe rwith the shop door open.

More to do so better get back to working.

Everyone have a great week

You are doing a LOTTA work in the warm weather. I’m in NW Virginia—Bergton—and the weather is wonderful. Question… you like the Gorilla wood glue better then the TiteBond? I see you have a big bottle of it there. Keep up the good works.

Yes, I like the Gorilla better than the TiteBond brand. At times I hold pieces in place and then clamp them, Gorilla seems to cooperate better, bonds faster and the not slide like TiteBond does for me anyway.
