    Got the yard (job site) all cleaned up and put the left over wood away. I also cleaned up the shop and put the tools in their place and stacked some other left over wood a bit neater. Everything is back on shelves that needed rearranging where it belongs and I am no longer in danger of tripping over cut offs while I am in there. The Glide Mitre is bolted back down in it’s spot and I can find things again. Shop still needs some dust removed from corners and such, but it is functional again.

    Did some more work on my end table. Working on the top, the lower rails for the drawer and the guides for the drawer, the new Laguna bandsaw makes re-sawing a dream with very little waste and cleanup required; accurately taking about 1.5 mm out of the center of some maple for the rails and guides.

    Today I was the ikea assembler. The wife bought a bunch of ikea items and i just took the time to put them all together, im kinda impressed with the different plugs they use now. Not just dowels but plastic dowel anchor like pieces that you just hammer in.

    Seeing that it’s a rainy day, and I am at a natural pause point in building things, I edited some video and got it posted up. It’s in my thread if you are interested.

    must be a dog with some special taste. I can’t imagine it tastes good haha.
    Unless it’s real wood then I know why the dog did it.

    Lol yeah I’ve been there, lol the first year we had our, believe it or not, pug, he chewed every 90 degrees outside corner of the baseboard lol
    Then started on the bottom hardwood oak step, that must have sharpened his teeth, because after that he was chewing on the bottom of the seat base of our kitchen chairs lol
    I used to get home from work and say, WTF, never realized it till one day I caught him lol, after we used to crate him, never had any issues, (don’t worry) his crate is the biggest you can get, 30 inches wide by 40 something long and easily 30 inches high. Lol its basically a dog palace lol

    As for me, I don’t laugh (played barbies lol) with my best friend, my daughter, then played in the pool, after cut the grass, and few other tasks around the yard,

    I know exactly what you have been through Joshua, I hope you are doing okay to buddy.

    Im doing ok, but some days its hard. Because we are still using all the tools that he has used for alot of years, some tools i grew up with him using them, or a song on the radio that was his favorite and thats when it hits me.

    I totally hear you Joshua, but those tools are priceless now, and those songs you hear will be great memories in time. Definitely hard for you, but hang in there buddy.

    thanks for your comments also guys.

    Worked regular 7am-4pm and then went to do a mockup/test of masonry cleaning for a new possible client. They also need some masonry joints ground out and replaced.

    Cruised around today on our houseboat rental. Everytime we take these houseboat vacations we itch for buying a boat. Now, with my wife now decided to retire from her teching career next year we are now think of selling the house and buying up here with a boat as well. Such thoughts!

    Just hand in there Josh. It’s gonna take a while…6 mos plus at least imo, but you know what…..his spirit will be strong in sight. It just happens that way. What was a solemn sight looking at everything suddenly becomes an enlightening beacon of who he was and what he meant to you. It suddenly helps carry you in ypur life forward. More so than you can even imagine now. Sorrow starts to disipate and unbridled pride takes hold in his rememberance. Be patient and stay the course Josh.

    After work I spent some time restoring some moldings for one of the cars. Time consuming work.

    I think @MrFid used that on his curly maple side table a couple of months ago. I know he was pleased with the results.

    Indeed I did. Good memory! I bought a pretty light dye since I didn’t want the maple to be darkened. One piece of advice I’d say is cut some test pieces and try some different levels of dye in the mix. I ended up liking about 10 drops of the dye into maybe 3 ounces of shellac. But I did a bunch of trials with different levels of dye. I gave the trials the full treatment of sanding and one coat of poly on top since that’s when the grain really starts to pop. From there you decide what you like best.

    Let us know how it turns out! Good luck!
