  • Cutting desks

    It's the end of school around here and I came up with an idea that I'll share. As a teacher, over the years I have noticed a lot of broken desks out by the dumper at the end of the year and I have tried to come up with an idea to make use of them. A couple of months ago I noticed that the desk top is, I believe, made of MDF so I grabbed a couple to try. They are about 3/4 inch thick and 14x18 or so. I haven't measured and I haven't tried it out yet but I will this summer.

    Anyway my point of this post is to say that you might want to check out around local school dumpsters at the end of the year for wrecked desks if you cut MDF. It's also got a nice laminate on the top too.

    Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

    Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

    Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
