    • Can’t win them all. My son slept long enough for me to break down 3 sheets of plywood. Hopefully I cut them correct. Still need to carry them down to the basement tonight. 
    • Update to the cordless drill rack. Here’s how it turned out; reminds me of the Atlantic coast submarine pens on the west coast of France.......
    • I have mostly Freud bits. The containers they come in are large and take up a lot of space. The bits are also well ensconced in the containers; I often need to use a heavy leather glove to safely remove the bits. I have explored another system, but the outline on the container that describes what cut the bit does is a help to my senility.......    
    • Speaking of nice work, I just routed the rabbit for a back panel on the front of the side...  hand cut dovetail case so there’s no way I can flip it around. We have family in town so I pawned off the kids on them so I could have some shop time!  
    • I am replacing the wood in ab old restored pickup truck bed.  It's a 1955 truck that I have owned for 30 years.  when I first got it the original yellow pine was only a ghost of what it originally was.  took out whatever was left and used white oak stained with golden oak, then coated with a dozen or more coats of polyurethane.  At that time I didn't know that the oak was probably a poor choice or that the poly wouldn't stan up to weather.  there are a few who are surprised that it lasted and looked good for nearly 20 years.  Now it's shot, my polished SS strips and hardware still look great   After looking at various hardwoods  I liked the appearance of brazilian cherry in the high gloss black surface of the truck   the cherry seems hard to get locally unless buying a lot more than I need    A local hardwood shop suggested quarter sawn sapele which he has a very good supply of and will be a reasonable price   if I want a red tone similar to the cherry and a gloss, how do you experts recommend finishing with?   It will be outdoors but covered
