  • I was not absent. just waylaid. lol

    ok now I have to tell you. I was not just powting. I was scrolling. I have never tacken a trip all buy myself. and I thought I would do so this week. I have made all kinds of stuff for family and there friends. and noting for mine. dumn huh. funny how we get waylaid in are effort to make friends, and let are old ones out.(charity an all) I have never maid anything for my real friends. I was so busy makeing things to empress those around me, that I never maid anything for the friends I had for years. like 20 years. so I decided to make some thing for them. they didn't even know I could do this. so it will be a suprize. not to mention. I never went to see them. they came to see me alot of times. took it for granit. so this is what i am doing. I maid 2 perfume trays for my 2 best friends. and they don't know about it. and I am going to take a buss, then a train. then a buss. wow scarie. I could get mugged.
    I think it is somthing that I have a chance to make this up to them. its also sad that they always told me that I was so talented. and never maid them anything. so now I have a chance to make it up. this will be a big deal to me. and I am not scamming on it. Xmas , birthdays. barr none. I am going to do this. and I will make my tiles too. I wont let my friends down anymore. no matter what hubby says. love you all. your friend Evie

            Man! Am I glad to see you post.

            I missed you girlfriend I was worried about you.

            I even thought you took a powder on us because of the pattern thing.
            I should have known better.

            Those trays are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
            You have done yourself proud once more.

            Take care,

                  As if your head hasnt swollen enough yet.... The trays are magnificant!!! You didnt mention whose pattern that is..Im guessing its a Peculiar Fretworks? Sure looks nice.
                  The reason why youve still got those friends after so many years is because they are true friends, and the greatest gift they could ever recieve is your friendship! Go on your trip, reward them with these awesome gifts!!!! Dale

                    Hi Evie!

                    Glad to see you back!

                    The trays are REALLY AMAZING, except........, well if you look at the top left corner, then go down 17 rows, then in 32 frets, the bottom right corner of that fret appears sloppily overcut by about 1/64". Other than that they look good

                    Just kidding you! Is that box of wood gone yet?

                            I don't suppose you've accidentally made too many of those trays, Evie? I've got a nice space in my living room that's just crying out for one .

                                A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                                Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.

                                The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                                Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

                                The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                                Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed.
