  2. For those of us in the U.S., today is reserved to commemorate the fallen, those who have put themselves in harms way and paid the ultimate price. Spring is usually a time of celebration, and with things slowly turning back to normal, spirits are high, and I don't wish to take away from that. But take a moment, and remember someone or multiple someones, and remember them well. Celebrate the good things about them. I have multiple extended family members who are or were in the military, but the one I was closest to and miss the most is Greg, a splendid specimen of a motherfucker. To Gre

  3. Started with this then made it look like this then decided to play with chemicals then made it look like this via a probably Doug approved implement called a card scraper, then put the first coat on! probably will do another coat, might sand between coats? I am not sure what is recommended with this Osmo stuff… But; it looks ok! - I found out that if you get bubbles in the epoxy it’s doesn’t quite work to just put another layer on top. Also the really shallow flaws didn’t hold the epoxy well. I kinda wanted a contrast

  7. As long as I don’t have to test them I’m out. Made this little plaque, first time doing a small intricate V carve. I was a little worried it was going to be a tear-out disaster but it actually turned out well.

  8. Marc sent me a really nice piece of figured walnut to turn into record player parts. Part is going to be 1.35” thick but board was 2.5”. Seemed to be a waste to machine/plane it down to the correct thickness. Nice finally having the right tools for the job.

  11. Nice! Steve and I used a torch to draw up the air bubbles in the epoxy and that works well. I really didn't like Osmo but it looks good there. I bought this Woodpeckers Super Fence months ago, received the package weeks ago, opened it finally last week to find out they sent only a single piece of Super Track by mistake. They sent me the actual fence and I got to keep the super track for my trouble. Anyway, this went together very easily, and now I have to set up another router to rout my router table. This very meta effort will create channels for the tracks to hold the Super Fence.

  16. Looks like y’all got some fun projects going. Before I could do anything else I need some HVAC in the shop since it’s getting hot and humid. Put this 26,000 BTU Mr Cool in yesterday/today. Pretty darn easy DIY install. So far it’s cooling great.

  18. RIP Roz and cheers to a life well lived. Condolences to you and your family Todd. Today would have been my dad's 99th birthday. Missing him so much, but happy he is at rest. Today we also moved in my niece to the Mayberry cottàge formerly known as Frank's place. Also happy that she is in a good place and looking forward to the next chapter. Without Frank.

  19. Still need to run them rough the sander. Goal was to have them be 1/32 when finished. I’m sure I could go thinner but wanted to err on being thicker until I’m really good at resawing them.

  26. Initial testing on the balancer is looking good. I’ll need more testing to confirm, but the batteries are much closer than before. This should help to extend battery life.

  29. Had a night at the opera last night... only instead of at the opera house it was a drive-up stage at the Marin Civic Center. They did Barber of Seville. It feels great to getting on the road back to live theater/music/opera.

  41. Diana Rigg and Anthony Hopkins, taken when they were acting in MacBeth at the National Theatre in 1972. I'd walk over hot coals to turn back the clock and see what must have been a superb performance.
