Talking Accomplishments and Creations

Okay I'm Whooped!

Yesterday, and last night was spent transferring more patterns (since I was a widow again this weekend). This afternoon, I was able to get out to the workshop and do some cutting. There's three (3) more that I cut, but two (2) of them have a boo-boo (I'll show it next time) and they wouldn't fit on the table tonight, anyway.

Today was 6.5 hours in the shop. I can't take credit for the bases that the four (4) "faces" sit on. These were purchased at Hobby Lobby yesterday because I was testing a different blending marker (than the last one I bought) to see if it would work. It didn't. (Dang-it.) Anyway, as I was cutting the "faces" today, I figured if they fit on the stand, it would make a nice change for the pattern; a variation, I guess. I also got the signs from last weekend sanded and the holes drilled for the smaller signs, as the last task for the evening. I still need to smooth them up and get them ready for staining, but the noses have been sanded and will fit a pair of glasses.

The last picture is the filing job I got from my disc sander; quickest filing job I've ever had good thing I had a finger nail there, or I'd have a skinned finger tip. (Got this as I was sanding down the nose area on the stands.)

P.S. Rick, does this look like a neat, orderly shop? I don't think so Needs a good cleaning, but I was too tired to get it done. If I don't get it done before next weekend, I'll have to do it before I start cutting next weekend.

6.5 hours well spent Barb,except for the fingernail sanding,though close shaves are better than a full on accident. Thanks for showing us your good work. James.

Nice work as always. No insulation or drywall yet? Winter's almost here.

Barb, your shop is neat and orderly compared to what mine looks like right now. I have a Shopbot Desktop CNC on the floor just inside the door just to get it out of my van. I need to find time to put it in place and check out the spindle to make sure it is working correctly. Then I need to remove that spindle, return it to the customer and install my own spindle. The big problem is finding room for it in my crowded shop.

Looks like you are well on your way to getting stock for crafts shows for before Christmas shows.

Electrician is holding us up, Tom. Ken won't put the insulation or walls up until the electrician looks over his work, and things keep getting in the way to get him out here to finish putting in the electricity. Ken's plans include doing the insulation and walls while he's on unemployment this winter, and while I'm at work during the day. It will give him things to do besides sitting on the couch watching You Tube all day last winter every day I came home all I heard about was what he watched on You Tube. Very irritating.
