Topic tags/keywords: question

This is one of the few weekends my stuff isnt on display at a craft fair or art festival and the first weekend in awhile i wont be emerged in box making getting ready for a show.
Im going to take the time to slow down and take the whole weekend (even friday!) building a nice 4 drawer jewelry chest.

Putting in a new garage door and garage door opener for my in-laws. Their 200 pound monster is getting to be a bit too much for poor Nancy. Then I’m ripping out the rest of the plaster ceiling in my dining room that decided to let a 4’x8’ chunk go this past Sunday. All that while probably putting in 20 hours of OT at my job to get a project ready for testing Tuesday.

So much for a nice 3 day weekend. :(

My wife just had a total knee replacement surgery today. My weekend project will be taking care of her and doing all the cooking, cleaning, washing clothes, doing the dishes, etc. I like cooking. Don’t care for any of the rest of it – but I’ll do it. That’s what love and commitment is all about.

Make a playing card holder out of spalted maple. Clear a lot of bermuda, making way for more roses. And make a trellis out of MDO for the sweetpeas to grow on. Oh and harvest some bamboo and set to dry for future projects.

Don’t even know what the wifey has in mind for me.

In Nashville for meetings, but looking at tools and checking out the hardwood in Tennessee in my spare time, looking to take home whatever I can on the plane…
My wife graciously stayed home and is feeding horses and doing chores while I “play”.

I’m having my tonsils removed Friday so I don’t think I’ll be able to play in the shop this weekend. I am working on a simple MDF cabinet for my mother’s laundry rooom. My first MDF cabinet, I want to see how it feels and how well I can paint it with a brush and roller.
