Well , Im processing the material for theJefferson Seed press, and looking to see what day i can get to Monticello to view it in person, no measuring or photos are allowed, but thats ok, let me get a good look and we will do well, I do have some info on it, looking forward to that build, additionally i am starting the Colonial hanging cupboard on line project video, and we are also going to make some “buckets”, yep wooden buckets, sounds sort of crazy, but wooden buckets teach us some cool skills, figuring out compound angles…and cutting them, shaping a radius, stuff like that, and besides there fun, neat projects…and every one need a bucket from time to time…now i have often said if you ever thing you have reached the level of being a master woodworker, build a barrel….using random width staves and no glue and have it hold water,….its quite a challenge…
Well i went to Washington DC over the weekend , did my talk on finishing, but didnt get a chance to drop by the White House and have a chat,…maybe next time
On the way up, the subject of Bill Gates came up and it was said he has more money Than the US government, I thought about this and said ..” every body has more money than the government”, and it’s true.
Got a little more garden planted, tomatoes ( maters), and this evening will plant some more stuff, zuccuini , squash, cucumbers, watermelons , cantelopes green beans, and corn…geez , and as much as i have, we will be able to feed a small army, but its fun to watch it grow,.
well it out to the shop and decide what size buckets I want, and get the final planing done on the seed press walnut.
