You bed is looking good so far, what brand glue are you using.
Yep, that would be me. Can't afford to hire anyone you know.

Jim, if you had a nice big screen on your 'puter, you could probably see it is LePages glue. Just a regular white glue, but it is very high tack. You have no time to mess around once you start applying the glue.

I don't know that I have heard of that glue but if you are using it, it has to be good. I tried several glues over the years but I always went back to Elmer's carpenter glue, it has never let me down and some of the other glues have. When gluing up a bending rail with Elmer's, there is about 20 minutes open time before it has to be in the forms and clamped in place, some times that was a hassle to do that quick.

Jim, this one is very similar to Elmer's.

I pulled the clamps off the last side piece this morning, and no surprises so far.

Then I glued up what will be the top rail on the headboard, and before clamping, the wood had a terrible twist. I may need to rip it into strips and re-glue it afterwards to get the twist out.

So, when the neighbours are all awake, I will fire up the planer and run all the boards through to see what I have.

Just finished watering the garden for the missus...she's still down with a bad leg.

I tried to get a pic of Jupiter and 3 of the moons...came out way overexposed and no moons. Sorry about that. I'm going to use the excuse that it's too far away...are you buying that one?

Oh wow, that is absolutely beautiful, I agree with Judy, you could sell your pictures to Nat Geo.

Did you get to see the meteor shower this morning? I missed them, I was too busy watching the back of my eye lids.

Jim, when I was outside trying to image Jupiter I did see one beautiful meteor. Trouble is, with a full moon, much of the effect is lost.

The trick is to lay down somewhere looking up, with the moon shielded from your view. That way the meteors appear brighter.

Has anyone else found a problem with the "manage attachments" button missing? Can't post pics.

I see also that most of the ads which normally appear are not showing up on the sidebar. Something is obviously wrong. I'll log out, and try again.

I think I know the source of my aggravation about the lack of the "manage attachments" button now.

Let's see...
