What a great picture Bud. They're very cute kids! Being over in Germany, I bet you and Mrs. Cline miss them terribly.

The little non-conformist is Chloe, she's one, her brother Aidan is going on five, they're the best. Don't know how old Santa is.

OH THAT!
Well it turns out the auction brought a little over forty thousand dollars. Not bad for old guns I guess but certainly not what the owners had imagined it could be. Huge disappointment to everyone I'm sure.

Wow! That is absolutely fantastic!

Do any of you remember the documentary about how the Egyptians might have moved those big stones used to build the pyramids? I don't remember if it was a National Geographic show or not.

But a group of scientists had got together and showed how these 4,000 pound stones could be moved quite easily by simple people power and a few wooden levers.

This is very reminiscent of that performance.

Sorry I haven't been putting anything up here for a few days, but I've been trying to get some carpet down in the bedroom.

I had a load of questions about the "how to" of that and it has been running on another thread.

Rather than duplicate that here I will just do this...

Carpet on stair treads only???

As you will see, all carpet is not created equal!

Only 3/4 of an hour until mid-eclipse of the moon for those of us on the Pacific coast! And naturally.....it's cloudy.

It was a "sight unseen". I just got back from looking at some spalted alder, but they wanted $400.00 for the 100 or so feet. Not a good deal in my opinion. I had to make some easels for the misses as she has an art show happening, only had 24 hrs notice to make 3 of them, talk about a challenge. But I made the time line.

Not too shabby! And making three in one day is pretty damn fast! I have one around here somewhere that I made for the missus some time back.

I'll see if I can get a pic of it and show you.

Thanks, that would be nice to see the one you have made. The other two I made out of left over flooring that I planed the backs down on. Trying to make use of all my scraps. I told the misses that she could sell them if she wanted to as they were made in a hurry and not my best work thats for sure. If I make a keeper it will be a lot more intricate. I was thinking of making one that the top half folded down to act as the support leg if it were to be used on a table, I think that would be a little unique as I have not seen one like that before.
