  • Gift for Benji

    This has also been posted on the other two forums, sorry if I am repeating myself to some of you.

    I finished this name train today and it will be delivered tomorrow. The wood is red oak and it was from a tree that fell down in a neighbors yard about 4 years ago, someone slabbed it and it was in pretty bad shape. I ran it throught my drum sander to flatten one side then went to the planer to thickness it to just under 3/4 inch. I applied 2 coats of Watco oil and then our friend Rattle Can Lacquer. Benji's birthday was put on the caboose using vinyl letters, the finished piece is about 40 inches long. We hope the next baby our friends have will be named something like Al or Tom.

    This is a variation of one of Steve Good's patterns---Thank you Steve.

My experience in shop vacs and specifically the large FEIN 8 year old unit - is that the canister on it gets filled rather quickly; logic...

    I usually don’t give anyone a picture either. Even my Christmas card puzzles go into the envelope unassembled with no indication of what the card looks like. For this one I made up my own card for them (complete with pictures) and put the envelope inside the box. Before they opened it I warned them...
