Largest commission to date!I always told my wife that the tool purchases and shop upgrades were in case I became disabled.As I'm a long time Crohn's patient and now recent dialysis patient. Well back in '16 lost my job in telecom and with no replacement job offers to my liking began building.Be careful how you frame your spending, might come back to haunt!Back before medicare I had a home nurse that came every two weeks for my blood draw and dressing change. This nice lady noticed while exiting through the shop a pair of cedar chairs. She said she was remodeling a house and she wanted them as soon as she moved in. Since these were my first and sorta error filled I sold them cheap with the understanding she would sell me another set one day.A couple, three months go by and I get a call from her boyfriend that I met while delivering. He says he has a friend with a lake house needing to replace his porch chairs.Dude said he wanted six chairs and five tables!!!!Delivered them last weekend, wow nice place, not just a house acre and acres of hunting land along the Black Warrior River in West Alabama.

Pen #11 Brushed Nickel Slimline with KnotI went looking for a Celtic Knot, but this is what I found. I don't know what to call it.
Finished with YG and CA.And now, because I've nothing else to say, you'll indulge me a little piffle.This is a tree. A real tree. A Carolina Pine, On Coronado St., South of Sunset. The power pole with the transformer is well away from the tree.A couple weeks ago, I was up on the bluff at Loyola Marymount University, on an incredibly clear day, when this tree demanded that I photograph it.Thank you. And, I apologize.

How to make a keg to store honey.Hello . Today I made a keg for honey storage, as well as a spoon for honey. I used bog oak and ash for making. The height of the barrel is 150 mm, diameter 110 mm. The length of the spoon is 180mm. For the finish coating, I used carnauba wax. The entire manufacturing process, you can see by clicking on the link.
