  1. Happy Birthday and good luck with the move and everything else Knucks! Cheers!
  2. I made standing rib roast for dinner last night and Claire made the Yorkshire pudding and the Paris-Brest cake, both of which were awesome.
  3. I'm doing OK but I'm ready for 2022 to end. I spent the day doing some woodworking with Steve and couldn't bring myself to clear the drains in the back yard before the next big rain we're supposed to get. Did you spend most of your day getting your fingers shredded by a furry land piranha?
  4. Have a great one Joachim! Cheers
  5. Awesome surprise dinner!
  6. Cassoulet with duck confit and sausage.
  7. Merry Birthday Ric! I hope Santa brought you lots of outdated camera equipment to make your day extra special. Cheers!
  8. Bon anniversaire Guy de Guzzi! Cheers!
  9. Hang in there Jim! Good thing you've got booze stocked up.
  10. Judge Judy would not rule for you on this one, Steve.
  11. We just booked tickets to arrive on Thursday Feb 23 and we are staying after the weekend to visit our daughter and other friends. Friday afternoon at Other Half and Finback in Gowanus Brooklyn, along to sandwiches from Court Street Grocers nearby is my proposal for kicking things off...
  12. I don't know what your bench project is, but my preference would be walnut on top and oak below. I also watched the Bourbon Moth TV show, and I don't think he showed me how to do anything. He had multiple things going on with not one explained from start to finish. Curious about the next episodes.
  13. I have to replace all four 45K Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ tires on our Lexus SUV after only 25K miles and Costco is blaming misalignment (that they didn't catch in January when they rotated) and under-inflation. I'm pissed but probably cannot prevail in a battle over this because we didn't keep up the maintenance and the wear is uneven enough to void the warranty. So, I'm looking at all season tires and the two leaders are Michelin Cross Climate2 (60K) and Bridgestone Alenza AS Ultra (80K) that run about the same price. Anybody have any experience with either of those tires or any suggestions (other than take better care this time)?
  14. Do you call those scone roses?
  15. My older Porter Cable model 690 is 1.75hp I think, and it came with fixed and plunge bases. There is a current model that is similar https://www.portercable.com/product/693lrpk/1-34-hp-multi-base-router-kit
  16. Not much of a birthday present, except for the retirement part! Heal well and quickly and best of luck transitioning to a man of leisure!
  17. I used graph paper and made scale cut outs of the tools and cabinets to see how they would fit. I'm not sure what you mean by wanting ideas for cabinets so you might need to give more information like what kind of work you're going to do in the shop and what you need to store, etc. Upper cabinets for my shop were from a kitchen I helped remodel and then we built the base cabinets.
  18. @jp11801 started talking about this meet in a different thread about a different meet, but if we're going to make something happen then we need a proper meet thread. This could be an opportunity to get the old Travel Team together again! @shellylh claims to be making the trip and Claire and I are considering going too. Some locals like @bozebuttons and @Kerry -- MOT MOT MOT! -- will be there. Not sure if @Iron_Dreamer or @justin are working the show, and even if he's not promoting ECP Audio, @dsavitsk is not far away. So, who else feels like it is safe to come out and play again?
  19. What is the purpose of that light box?
  20. It's gotta be over 100 lbs! Looks good, and I wasn't sure if you were leaving the groove but it gives the sides some texture and interest. 👍🏻
  21. Wednesday is dancing to Goo Goo Muck all day to celebrate your big day! Have a great one! Cheers!
