    I got the rest of the pine for shop cabinets milled today and 2 of the cabinet boxes built. Unusual sizes but they will suit me well for the shop. 15″ deep and 32″ high; they will be mounted just below ceiling height to allow greater working space below.

    Looking forward to reducing some of the clutter in the shop.

    Once I have stuff put away I can run the DC mains and drops, rearrange machines and get to making sawdust in a serious way.

    BE the change you want to see.

    Worked on mudding the spare bedroom yesterday. I took a break from it today. I did a dump run to get rid of our old couch. Our dump is only open 3 days a week. I had memory lost moment today. Being on vacation I completely forgot I had eye appointment. I normally don’t make appointments for Saturday’s. I called the and told them I forgot about my appointment. I made another appointment and I didn’t get dinged $80 for a missed appointment fee. Now I need to wait 2 months for this appointment. Not too happy about this.
    I went to the Home Hardware to pick up two 24 inch fluorescent tubes for lights over the sink in our place and the apartment. I couldn’t believe they didn’t have any. So I sent wifey a message to see if she would mine going HD to get some. She was in the city swapping out hockey equipment for youngest daughter. She no problem getting them HD.

    Looking good Ron. What type of finish is going on. I always worry about scratching happening.

    I barbiqued thick rib steaks that marinated in beer, garlic, and pepper overnight and drank a couple of beers too. I don’t think anyone got through their whole steak as they each weighed about a pound or more each.

    That might tell me it wasn’t very good. You don’t want that.

    I got a second window in today. Looks just like the first one. One small measurement error had me pull things apart, but it was a small inconvienience. I forgot to subtract the thickness of the sill from it’s supports. I found the mistake soon afterwards and corrected it before I got too far along.

    LOL!!

    I spent most of the day putting the finishing touches on our Rental apartment. So our new tenant can move at 1st of the month. I had bring a stove out of storage in our basement. I let our last tenant you there own stove. That was a mistake. Sometimes it doesn’t pay to be a nice guy. I have only been up in apartment once since old tenant moved out. I still have to replace a screen in one of the windows & range hood over the stove. The fan was left on when the tenant moved out. We didn’t find out till the next day it was left on. Fan does work. Just not well. So I ordered a new Range Hood today. Just have to change it once it gets delivered. This guy was quite the character. Hard to believe he runs his own landscaping business.

    I got the first 3 cabinets up in the shop yesterday, one more 4′ section to go. These are all solid pine, I just can’t justify the enormous price for plywood of any kind. The new bandsaw has been great resawing 4/4 material for the cabinet backs. The shop is still a shit mess but once I get some shelves in, things will improve.

    I’ve been told I need to go out for a while today. Maybe that has something to do with my 77th birthday tomorrow … hmmm.
