  • Memorial Day

    I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful time this holiday weekend. Although I am not a veteran, I hope everyone takes time to remember and thank those who have served in our armed forces.
    We will be hosting our annual BBQ on Monday, and then, much to my wife's chagrin, leave for a week long trip to California on Wednesday morning. A wedding in LA and visiting cousins we haven't seen in many years. It's my first trip to that area of the country and I hope that the smog does not get us.

    A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

      Thank you to all who have served, are serving or will ever serve. They know what freedom is and what it costs.

        To all my brothers and sisters in Arms, I hope sometime in your Holiday weekend, we stop and think of those that did not make it home with us. God Bless everyone that serves our Country.

          Hear, hear, Rolf. I'm a Vet as well. I'm thinking of my brother who gave his life to his country in 1981- he was an A-10 fighter pilot. He has been missed.

              I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

              If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

              The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

              I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
