Awwww man, that is one gorgeous, sleek ship, I would love to make a model of that one. There is just something mystic about those beautiful vessels that just intrigue me. Just being on the open water with just the wind pulling the ship along is a feeling of being free to me for some reason. Thanks for this picture and the others also buddy.

No sooner had I posted about that cedar board yesterday evening, that the woman upstairs in charge of the weather opened up the tap and we got a heavy rainstorm here. So, my board is good and wet...but it'll dry out.

The missus is pretty pleased with the rain, she won't need to water the garden today.

The clamping setup for the bookshelves has been moved outside to one of the runoff tables.

Reason? The board I had cut to clamp the shelving boards against was slipping slightly because of the 6 mil poly underneath it. The pressure exerted by several shelf boards when being clamped was far more than the guide board could stand...even with many clamps holding it to the bench.

Here's the first few boards on the new setup.

In order to prevent a repeat of the previous problem, I cut two guide boards this time, and screwed them both - with many screws - directly to the table top.

No problem at all this time.

And among other things, I went through the second bag of grout today.

This is part of the main floor area which is now done, just the final seal coat to apply and that's it.

I noticed the filler stick you used to keep the wild end of one of the sticks from curving back. That is aggravating when they try to slide up out of place also. I have a huge roll of wax paper someone gave me and I tear a piece off and lay it across the glue up in a couple of places and screw a hold down stick across to hold everything down in place. That is going to look really sharp!

I like the color coordination of the tiles to wood, that really does look great. Just think, you won't have to get back on your knees there except to seal some more.

...trouble is Jim, that and the part under the bench are the only sections that are done.

I'll be getting some more done shortly before we take the wife's friend back over to town later today.

I have another half a shelf glued up now in the clamps, and I can get that one finished up in the next half hour. It's still too dull inside to get to grouting yet, even though it looks like a nice sunny day is in the offing.

Either I've been too lazy to post, or I've been busy.

I have some pics in the camera to download, and wouldn't you know it, the battery picked right now as the time to go flat...grrrr! Don't worry, it's charging as we speak, and I'll be back with all sorts of updates in an hour or so.

BRB...

I was sitting here at the computer a few days ago right around sunset. The sun was shining through the three high windows on the north-west wall and making this play of light on the curved beam.

Couldn't resist a pic.

And yet another quite unusual sky just before sunset a few days go.

And the next morning produced this reflection looking toward Scoggy's house at Ladysmith.

Two from the missus' garden.

I think the lily is a Stargazer (can anyone confirm that?) and the other is her very first Dahlia. She's pretty pleased with herself about that one.

In another part of the garden she has these white/yellow lilies just blooming now.

And I just found out that the lily above isn't a Stargazer - don't know what it is - here's a Stargazer, close but no cigar above.

A short while ago we ordered up the foam to make the mattress for the bed. The gal called to say it was ready for pickup a few days ago, so I took the sailboat over and brought it back.

It's in the boat here. Good thing I didn't try to fit it in the skiff, it's much bulkier than I thought.
