building table

Hello everyone!

Today was cold in Chicago land.

I waited until the afternoon to go out to the garage. James helped me build the table for the sander. It isn’t pretty but it will work and that’s what I need. I still have to mount the sander, so that will be tomorrow. Then I can sand my projects properly (I hope).

I might tackle my electrical problem tomorrow and play electrician. Shocking! I know. Then I can build my work cave. Arrgh! Need a heater! Gotta move stuff around too, and reload my wood collection in the garage ceiling. Maybe I will take before and after pics.

Hopefully I can make some saw dust too. Though I did today but that was 2×4’s on the table saw. I gotta get going on my wood crafts. I am getting signed up for a craft fair, Santa’s Secret Shop at Arbor View School on Dec. 4, 10 AM -2 PM. Y’all come ya hear?! See what I got, bring money, spend it too! Buy, buy, buy!!

Speaking of pics…there aren’t any! Nope! not one, you will just have to chill! If you are Chicago or north just go outside that’ll work for ya!

Saw Dust Made!

Hello everyone!

The weekend is here!

Like the title says I made some saw dust today and finished a couple ornaments. You will see some pics of course at the end as always. They will go with yesterdays post.

I definitely need to get a heater for my work space in the garage. My toes still feel it! I have an idea.  A plywood work cave within the garage and keep the heater close. How does that sound? Maybe a raised floor to keep my feet off the concrete. I think I will need an electrician too. Not enough outlets. So far I have not tripped any breakers, but I think I am using all I can already. A heater may be too much.

I started a nativity scene and made 3 sheep, 2 donkeys and 1 camel. Next will be all the people and then the house. I also made a reindeer ornament and have an idea on  how to make it a different way so it will stand on its own.

So for you Elmhurst residents, here are some ornaments for you. These end yesterdays speculations I am sure.  YD, York Dukes
