 Thank you for the nice pictures of your projects. I did like the inlay of red heart I think its called on the candle box. I went up online and looked at Rockler's catalog on their box of hardwoods such as curly maple, purpleheart, oak, south american hardwoods too. I can't wait until I get my electric put in sometime this summer.

Hi Jim,  Thank you for your words of encouragement.  Yes I am getting better even is it is slow it is something to be thankful for.  I still have double vision and the nerve damage from the shingles attack.  I have a doctor's appoint with a specialist in May and will know what the outcome is going to be. 

I have recently been in the shop building a customer some custom base molding for his house.  It does feel good to be able to do something and I do miss the members of the Community.  I do read the posts but cut my replies as it is hard to look at a computer screen for a length of time.  Sometimes I will reply if it is something that I feel that I can help a member with.  As time passes I will start replying more and will soon be pestering everyone with my comments.  After all I did promise that in a prior post.  There is a lot of good people and talent on this site and if I can help just one in his woodworking experience, then it has been worth all the efforts that I have put into it. 

I saw your framed pictures and was impressed with the nice and attractive photos framed with custom frames.  You did an out standing job with the frames.  I especially liked the one with the inlay and I am glad to see that you are starting inlay work as it is something that will definitely bring some exciting looks to projects.  Doing inlay is like all other phases of woodworking it just takes time and mostly the courage to begin doing it.  A few learning mistakes and it will all fall into place.  Thanks again for your friendship and take care of yourself.  Jay

 Nice looking display cabinet. I like that stain you put on it. Are you going to poly it before delivering to your client? Nice and roomy for displaying anything. You did a great job on it.

 That storage bench looks great. I like your design of the storage bench. The three panels in front and the slide hinge on the lid of the seat of the bench are level and look good to the eye. I also like the way the lid is made where the lid is not noticable when the lid is down in the seat position.

Hi, Jim.

 I love your rocking horse. It looked really cute. You really going to make a little boy very happy on Christmas morning. My Dad used an old plastic button for our sign on our small ranch sign that read,"Rocking Horse Ranch". We named our little homestead that because one year we had little babies from chicks, rabbits, ducklings, to a bull calf. That was a fun year with school and keeping up with all the little ones we cared for at the time. I can't wait until I make something for the kids to enjoy.

No sir I haven't got wheel yet. Should be here Tuesday or Wednesday. I will let you know how it works

Hi Jim, No I have been absent for a while.  I have been very busy with projects that I have to get done in order to even start thinking about Christmas projects.  Christmas will be on top of us soon and you know how fast days come and go.  Right now I am building some crown molding for that cabinet job I did earlier that needed the large crown molding.  It ends up being 10 1/2 inches tall and I'm doing custom stacked molding of which I will stack into two major pieces and install it.

As far as the glue up rack it is basically a wood frame of 2x4's with a piece of 3/4" pvc inset into the wood.  The pvc keeps the glue from sticking and acts like a large clamp to keep the planks flat.   The planks are squeezed with pipe clamps and it will lean up against a wall.  I posted this some time ago and I hope the last post I did yesterday will expand out so you can see the whole thing.  If not let me know and I will draw up the details again and send them to you.  You might see it better if you go to my discussions and look on page 46.  I t was posted on March 4 2011 and again at an earlier date of which I replied to a member named Doug.  I know I drew up the plans for him in answer to a question he asked. Hope this finds you well and things going good for you.

Jim, how do you get such a great painted finish on your outdoor projects?

Thanks for the comment and suggestion Jim, and yes,  I am a hard worker LOL!  This past weekend I was helping family with a house rehab they are taking on.  I can remove "use a hammer drill" off my bucket list!  Removing a fireplace and hauling brick.  I swear each wheelbarrow load weighed 300lbs!  At least it sure felt like it by the end of the day!  I know they would help me with the garage but they sure have their hands full right now.   I think the light weight insulation for the ceiling will be the way to go.  I once used some to make a headboard, cut it to the shape I wanted and covered it with quilt matting and fabric.  It was a inexpensive and easy material to work with and I could change the fabric to change décor when needed.  My goal for this year will be to close off the space, if only with a temporary fix, perhaps running two heaters that will allow me to tinker on a weekend afternoon.  Hate dark cold days of winter but being a snowbird is not doable :)

 Hi, Jim. I saw your wine glass rack. I think it looks great, I like the wine bottle rack with the arches. That was different for a wine rack. They are usually square and not really an eye catcher like yours. Keep making sawdust.

Hi  James         Thanks for your  comment,

   I made  this from scratch  , I never use  plans / Mainly just from a  picture ive  seen or actual see  items some where.

   I  make mostly furniture , small table ,benches , step  stools, shelves ,night  stands,which I sell in  a  craft mall.   I  use  a lot of  recycled material.

Keep me  pretty  busy since  retirement. Realy  enjoy this work.

Kreg jig was my  best investment in  a long  time.

Thanks  again   Cecil
