S Saturday morning my daughter came to me and said she needed a box. It needed to be 18"x14"x9" tall. This is what I came up with. The splayed sides were my idea as well as the finger joints I wanted them more for strength than beauty but it works well either you way go. Nothing extraordinary about the box . One side story all the materials are cedar from the deck posted on this site a few weeks ago.

She plans to paint some decorations on the sides then stain it and the put a couple of coats of varethane .I'll post those pics when avail.

Graffiti Weekend

For those of you that know me you know I have an old 1929 Ford Model A. For those of you that don't know me I have a 1929 Ford model A . This past weekend was Roseburgs annual Graffiti. It is 1 of the largest rolling car shows in the state of Oregon if not the biggest. In upwards of 400 cars or more. This just a small sampling of the cars that were there . You will note to you're left
in the pink poodle skirt is my 3 year old grand daughter . We try to participate in as much of the activities as possible but our only problem I don't like to drive my car after dark. You have to strike a match to see if the head kights are working.We had alot of fun even though it was unbearably hot this year . For anyone who enjoys hotrods and classic cars and even antiques. This is the place you should plan on taking in some day. Rick

crown molding

I've watched videos where they made crown molding on the table saw . This was my first attempt at it . It turn out pretty good I think , this is just a small portion that I used in my wife's office/craftroom I also built all the cabinets in that room but I didn't take any pics of those yet. I would suggest to anyone who wants crown molding to try to make you're own before you spend the money buying premade. If you would like any further info on how to do this . leave me you're e-mail and I'll send you detailed instructions.............Rick
