  • An Unusual Cuckoo Clock

    Just after I got married, I was invited out for a night with
    "the boys." I told the misses that I would be home by
    midnight ... promise!

    Well, the yarns were being spun and the grog was going down
    easy, and at around 3 a.m. full as a boot, I went home.

    Just as I got in the door, the cuckoo clock started, and
    cuckooed 3 times. Quickly I realized she'd probably wake up,
    so I cuckooed another 9 times. I was really proud of myself,
    having the quick wittedness -- even when smashed -- to escape a
    possible conflict.

    Next morning the misses asked me what time I got in and I
    told her 12 o'clock. Whew! Got away with that one!

    She then told me that we needed a new cuckoo clock. When I
    asked her why she said "Well, it cuckooed 3 times, said 'dang
    it,' cuckooed another 4 times, farted, cuckooed another 3
    times, cleared its throat, and cuckooed twice and giggled."

        I've seen that joke a couple of times, but it's one of the funniest ones out there. Maybe because I can actually visualize some drunk actually doing that same thing.

            He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

            Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

            I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

            You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
