MY garage (and the condition thereof) is one of her pet peeves.
She tells me all the time, I need to clean MY garage .
She also tells me I must stay out of HER kitchen.
If that were her real feelings then what the hell am I doing washing dishes on a regular basis? In HER kitchen!
I don't see her cleaning MY garage.

Do you REALLY want her (or anyone else) cleaning your garage? You'll never find anything you need if someone else "organizes" it.

That's the thing! I know where everything is believe it or not.
Could never convince her of that.
I search by color.

First thing this morning I got started on the side boards for the bed.

As is my practice, I did a dry run first. I cut some plastic from a packaging bag from one of my tools.

It looks about like this after all the clamps and cauls are in place.

I used the front of the workbench as my straight edge guide. Just tapped any part that wasn't dead straight with the rubber dead blow hammer.

Yeah...sure you do. Next thing we know you'll be trying to sell us some prime swamp land down in Florida for cheap.

So in between trying to turn skinny boards into fat 1 x 6's, I did some finish work on the living room wall.

Even after having been cut straight on the table saw, and then planed, much of this arbutus has a mind of its' own. I got a very quick pic of how much this stuff wanders off while being glued up.

With the high tack glue, you don't have a lot of time to get the clamps in place.

I find the easiest way to glue something like this, is to stack the boards on top of one another as you go.
