  1. I wouldn’t be able to sleep well tonight if I didn’t shoot straight with ya. Two of those are the ones you made Sharon and I just recoated them with mineral oil when I did the new ones! And unfortunately, one of the new ones had two worm holes in them and it will get chunked as I don’t want any food stuff to get in there and cause someone down the road to get sick from it.
  2. Has it already been stated and I missed it? What kind of finish will you be using?
  3. Thanks! I’m honored, coming from the crown prince of Spurtleville!
  4. From Spurtleville, a small hamlet SE of Houston. We are going to Louisiana tomorrow to visit some of my wife’s relatives and she asked if I would make a couple of these as gifts. Thanks Dave!
  5. No, it went to the burn pile.

    Hijack!

    As if you need a reason to appreciate your parents more, watch this. https://www.google.com/search?q=mother+by+john+lennon&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=safari
  7. I’ve often wondered why they call the guy standing next to the groom, “The Best Man”? Obviously to the bride he’s not.
  8. I made an end grain checker board a couple of years ago and used 1/4” ply as a substrate. I talked of my plans on here and someone mentioned applying the same material to the backside to keep a “ balanced panel” I ignored the recommendation and ended up with a checkered cistern. Learned the hard way.
  9. Just a curiosity question. I see on your dust partitions, the frame is proud of the panels and that you said you planed the panels from 4/4 to 1/2”. Is the reason you didn’t make the panels the same thickness as the frame due to cutting a little weight from the project. If it were me, I probably would have done the same, but only to keep from trying to make them flush.
  10. That is so cool!! Congratulations!
  11. Looks like a great time with a great family, Dave!

    Yep, variety was the word I should have used. I basically do the same as you describe about one stalk. I am not limited in space but I plant my tomatoes twice a year in the exact same spot. To prevent diseases, to curb weeds and to hold in moisture, I cover my rows with black plastic and cut holes in it to plant the plants. As these holes limit the amount of rain the plant receives, I have a dripper at each plant.
