    Took today off...no rust hutning, no shoptime...too bloody hot...

    Mondays the shop is usually closed...but..I need to get this Plant Stand done...as i have been told I need to build a 3 drawer chest of drawers for GrandBRAT #5.....so the 8yr old can put his clothes away...instead of all over the floor...

    Well, I WAS just going to clean up that backsaw, and see how it cuts....really, I was...got to looking at that plant stand....decided to try to get it ready for a glue up.....needed a few mortises chopped, one tenon needed trimmed...I think I have almost as much glue on my fingers, as I got on the parts..

    Work in progress....cut is glass smooth, but..on my Stanley #2246 miter box, saw acted like it was too short....re-measured..yep, a 4" x 22"..
    Might have just the box for it..

    I suppose I had better finish this thing up....starting a trial with a blood thinner this weekend.....then later, something called a Watchman may get installed...after they freeze away section...

    May head down to the shop, and get the forest of clamps off. Drill a few holes, and do a couple block installs.

    Stay tuned...

    Be very careful with the blood thinners, my friend.
    Best of luck to you.

    Yep, sharp metal objest and blood thinners do not play nice together...

    You are right about them sharp objects.
    That is lovely, per usual. Lemme guess; milk paint?
    Got a friend who loves the stuff.
    I would leave that just as it is, with some clear poly over it, screws or not.
    But yep, ya gotta please the one you made it for.
