    Doobie gonna call this point grabbing but it already started with Hojo so let continue lol…
    Yes they do still make Koa wood canoes. That one is a sailing canoe. The traditional way of building them is passed down to the youth here. Hawaiian Immersion schools are big here now too.

    Did i miss something , was he promoted to moderator ,

    Finished up getting the work done for a pour for my front yard newer lamp post relocation. This job has moved exceptionally well since I started at it yesterday. Quite happy!

    Not using your Makita powered wheel barrow LOL?

    No, simply because of the terrain it needs to go over from my backyard where the bags and mixer are to the front yard. It’s a little too prone to maybe tipping over getting over certain humps that are there right now.

    I got some stock prepared for doors for the bathroom vanity. Some knots that I had to stabilize with epoxy, so going to wait until tomorrow to do more.

    Started fussing with the wooden coffin smoother I got. I don’t think it is a great example, but will do for a starter in wood planes. Touchy to adjust it. Then I grazed my finger with a chisel and started bleeding so I called it a day. I bleed more from hand tools than I ever do from power tools.

    I don't do a fast job. I don't do a slow job. I do a half fast job.

    If it’s that tippy, what good is it? Wheelbarrows, at least ones worth using, can handle all sorts of obstacles without tipping.

    I’m not redoing a whole bunch of temp 100 lb stones I placed where the issue is for what would be 4 or 5 loads of concrete to do this one job. On normal straight on humps, it would be fine. But here, I’d have to climb the patio stones at a 45 degree angle, which it can do with lighter loads, but at real heavy loads, I already know how it could tip going over that area.

    So, it’s powered, but it won’t do what a “regular” wheelbarrow will do. So, again, what good is it?

    It’s simply because it’s 3 wheeled. It poses different navigation issues. But other than this one scenario, I’ve been using it regularly.

    OK, I get it, it’s great, but it’s limited, that’s what I said. LMAO

    That looks beautiful Ron ,
    I’m sure you will be getting more business after friends and family of that client see what beautiful work you have done

    As for me , waiting for the liquid nitrogen to finish up the last bake out of the ion pumps
    So I’ll just be helping my old department with some smaller assemblies today.

    Some yard work and Halloween decorating

    That’s sounds like menial housekeeping. Not shop or site work.

    Are we back to surreptitious points grabbing again Howard?

    Are you saying that you have never posted a post like this? Give me a break!!! Lighten up a bit and read what you put up.

    The amount of fluff posts I put up is menial and well below the 20-30% threshold that Jim found acceptable.

    Howard has 2714 posts. I doubt even 14 of those are valued content. Things like raking leaves and buying Xmas ornaments is not content. Isn’t this the kind of excessive points grabbing activity that many are lamenting about? I should be applauding rather than having potshots and fingers wagged at me. Sheesh!

    Who is Howard?

    On the weekend since I am waiting on some siding for the extension, I put the weather stripping on all of the doors (Garage door, man door to the outside and the door between as only one side is heated) in the mean time.

    A little more epoxy filling of knot holes to stabilize them. A touch of hand planing too. A light day in the shop. The rest was taken up with other mundane tasks.

    I spent the day yesterday framing in a small void in a client’s bathroom to make a finished book for shelving. The space was small and awkward, but they’ll get a few adjustable shelves when it’s all said and done.
