You know you want to, Nathan. You can be Mrs. Howell!

Or a cannibal. Up to you.

Why we wear face masks when turning. I guess my epoxy patch didn’t work.

-- Nathan, TX -- Hire the lazy man. He may not do as much work but that's because he will find a better way.

If y’all didn’t know. I’m a ginger. So it sounds like it was meant to be. Not super ginger but enough to not have a soul.

I would have never know. You’re always wearing a hat when we hang out man.

- KelleyCrafts

Yeah.

A jimmy hat

Stopped at the hardware store on the way home last night. Bought a spare “extension wand” for my shop-vac which will get turned into the dust collection system on my bandsaw. Not sure why I started looking in the plumbing aisle, but at some point I realized there were already parts that would fit the vacuum perfectly just a couple aisles over. Duh.

Dave – I don’t know if Nathan wants to be Mrs. Howell. It would be quite a drag.

Anyone…...??

Fridge – If you participate in the swap, maybe your sender could get you a redneck soul at Walmart as a bonus item.

Don’t worry Fridge, we all thought it, you just had the (in)decency to say it. Pretty sure Dave lobbed that one to see who’d swing ;-)

Dang Nathan, sorry about that bowl man. That turquoise looks incredible in whatever wood that was. You should keep those pieces and make an abstract wall hanging a’ la Dali. For some reason the pieces remind me of his melting clocks :-)

Wasn’t an old pickup truck with a soulless ginger driving was it? In any case, I think that makes you a perfect fit as Mrs. Howell ;-)

Dave P – What plumbing parts? Iquiring minds want to know. And they wan’t pictures too…

They NEVER have any in stock. Apparently there’s a bad problem with people shoplifting those. Although where they hide them to sneak them out will forever be a mystery.

No plumbing parts. I was looking at them (because a p-trap kit would give me everything I need for cheap) when I realized if I buy shop-vac parts, I won’t have to worry about things not fitting.

I got a 2’ long 1 1/4” extension tube (the smaller size vacuum cleaner tube) and a converter to step it down from the 2.5” hose my Ridgid shop-vac uses.

Pictures probably will come after the weekend, but I plan to blog it.

Welcome aboard the USS Minnow. The 3 hour cruise might just take a bit longer due to some mechanical issues. I guess I m the Skipper and Kenny is Gilligan (or maybe Ginger?), Dave P is the Professor, anyone else want to volunteer for the other parts?

Argh! I know better. I had intentions of getting back to the shop after a couple hours but didn’t make it. Left a glued panel on top of the table saw.
Looks like I’m practicing coopering now and I need it flat to cut the edges on the router table.
Now it’s flipped over with a 50cal can full of lead ingots on top lol

Yeah, about that. It was Monday, actually might have been Sunday when I intended to get right back. It’s not that bad, just always something
Any of yall got little kids? My girls are 6&9 and I’ve been running around like a lunatic these last few days – tis the season!
Making some shop time today though.
On a positive note, I use Durhams water putty for filler, I tried something new – instead of water I used some stain, worked pretty good too fill a knot it seems. We’ll see once I wipe the whole panel

You guys are missing out. I’ve seen Kenny in a unicorn bikini once. Was better than I thought.

Grant, it only gets worse as they get older. I have to juggle a wrestling meet and orchestra concert tonight.

Good thing I only have two boys that I know about….not sure how I would handle more. Let’s just say I don’t answer the door if I don’t know who’s knocking.

I’ve always considered duct tape a multi purpose tool. It can function as a clamp with a little persuasion.

I’m pretty sure God created duct tape on the 8th day to help hold things together when mankind started breaking his creation.

Okay dudes and dudettes. Need some opinions. Take a look at the two projects below. I have a set of drivers to make for Christmas. Need to know opinions on:
  • Solid or laminated blanks?
  • Which handle style? There isn’t a big difference but the Father’s Day ones are more oval while the swap ones have a more defined “flat”
