Okay, took a shower, shaved, all that stuff. Fixin‘ to film this little jointer thing and the table/chair leveling thing and I’m already running late. I’ve been out on our Forum this morning, Ace Hole in One has posted his finished dyed/stained poplar table and now it is ready to top coat. I really hope you are following this thread as it is a good learning experience and I hope you join in our forum and chime in. Remember, the only stupid question is the one you don’t ask.
I’ve been emailing with Kevin at Texas Timbers, he sent me some photos of “Box Elder” turning blanks, WOW, the choices, beautiful stuff.
Just got a call from Norman Hughes, my friend at Good Hope Hardwoods in Landenberg, PA. Wants me to come up and get a big bubinga slab and finish it for one of his customers. Sounds like a fun video. I’ve done several of these and a ton of slabs, it is hard work but it sure makes for some pretty stuff. Besides, it would be nice for you to see Norman’s operation and wood.
Talked with Bob Kloes, aka Big Bob on the forum, trying to convince him to work on some “wood bundles” for our folks. Tiger Maple, Birds Eye Maple, Curly Cherry, etc. Told you, he has some nice stuff.
While talking with Bob we were both talking about all the Sales going on in the tool world, it is definitely a buyer’s market, so if you are needing things, you may want to take a look around.
Hmmm, my hands are still green. Had a hail storm the other night and it did a number on my garden so I’ve been pruning plants in the evenings and the tomatoes turn my hands green…..gloves? hmmm, why didn’t I think of that.
Okay, need to go find a crooked board to show ya the jointer thing…..
Catch ya Later.
