Turning Tampers

It is fun to go out into the garage and turn a piece of wood into something functional.

. . . There’s just a trifle too much over hang. Trying to decide if I should take them back to my shop and fix them or deal with it the way it is . . .
You know what you should do.
I know. Mrs Gabriel walked in and pronounced it perfect so... it’s fastened now. Decided i was being too picky.

I made a firewood rack today from two old wagon wheel tires.

A 20" border of decomposed granite on either side of the front walk.
So far I've got the border in place. Next I need to cut a cement pipe to form a cap to disguise the sewer clean-out, make the base nice and level, then order the DG.
DEUS VULT!

Most of the remaining leaves are blown out of the yard, one of the widow makers in the back yard is cut down, and the good fire wood has been cut up. Now for the cleanup...
I've burned almost the entire gallon of 2 cycle gas I mixed last night.
There's quite the pile of firewood in need of splitting now. My old fashioned hand splitting may take a while. It might be time for a hydraulic splitter. Ugh!

Lasagna without noodles? Is that even a thing?

And no offense, that meat looks pretty rough.

With the adjustments I made, I have been successfully able to play the main Thunderstruck riff on a Gio.

There are many terrible attributes of the lowly cob. Not the least of them is that it makes you look like a doof.

Calling on the CPS Woodworking Brain Trust:

I'm making a mountain art picture thing and I need to trim some 1/4" slats flush with the 1/2" plywood backer. You can see how I trimmed the bottom on my table saw. It's 48" wide so it wont fit through the saw the other direction without some sort of table and fence extension. More work than I want to put in this thing. A jig saw is always my last resort because it'll chip the crap out of those slats no matter how fine the blade is. I've never used a flush cut hand saw before. How do you think it'd do for this task? I will of course put a frame around the outside once it's all trimmed up.

Image

EDIT: As is often the case, once I think through a problem well enough to explain it to someone else I hit upon a solution. I think I'll nail a temporary runner on the bottom, parallel to the end I need to cut. That runner will fit to the miter slot on the table saw. I'll need Mrs FredS to steady one end but I think that it would zip through the saw like buttah.

Sounds like you figured out a solution. I was thinking build a clamp/track for your skill saw.

That'd work too! I have a clamp-on guide and a finish blade for the circular saw. Thanks Judge.

Cleaning an Uberti replica of a Colt 1873 SA army. Who knows when I'll find ammo or components to shoot her again...

Sounds like you’ve got it, but I was going to say what the Judge said. Circular saw is usually my go to when it won’t fit on a stationary tool.

I am trying to learn the guitar solo for Thunderstruck. It's only 15 seconds, but only the first 5 seconds of tabs are correct and I have been having to fill in the gaps.

I really need an SG and Marshall tube amp. But I'll do good to get an Epiphone SG and a Peavy amp.

The Marshall valvestate amps are pretty respectable. I used to run an old 8040 and used it as a single channel. I put the gain on the clean side at 12:00 and controlled the amount of distortion with right hand attack.
