Have been really busy the past couple of weeks getting my house and out doors ready for winter.Not that its that cold yet but I didn't want to wait till the last minute and then have to do it all in the rain. I think I ve got it all done and now I can move back into my shop and start cleaning again. Still have the Router outfeed table to finish and the dust extraction for the both of them. I hope to get started this weekend I'm getting a little cranky because I'm not getting to work in my shop.. I really do get cranky and hard to be around when I don't get to work wood. I really don't know what causes it, I would call it selfishness. I like the solitude of just me in the shop its like I don't have to communicate with anyone and the wood never talks back. Sometimes I can almost forget about the outside world and thats a nice break. Any way hope to have some pictures by the end of the day....................

 I thought it might be nice to show you all some pics of the things I built for the fall family festival that I spoke of in the last post. The first one is a Sponge Bob sponge toss pretty self explanitory I think.   The second one is a plinko board this one took some time to put together but it works great. The third one is what we call the UFO toss basically if you get a ball thru the hole you can win that many tickets to redeem prizes .So everyone had a good time we gave away alot of prizes and nobody went home empty handed . some of were pretty tired though

two weeks in hell

Just finished two weeks in hell. my family and I, mostly my Wife put on a fall family featival at out churh. It's kinda like those old school carnivals you went to as a kid, lots of tossing games and fishing over the wall stuff. It was a huge success I'm guessing close to 300 screamming kids and they're bewilderd parents went thru it in the 2 hrs. it goes on. I do all the construction for the festival and of course I have to put it together and take it down Thats what I've been doing for the past 2 weeks. Maybe now I can get back to my router out feed table  Keep looking in you never know what you are going to see on this blog............................................Rick
