I suspect you mean hanged, either that or suspended.

I'm an angel compared to you folks. I'm relatively confined to own rooms. It's mostly the darkroom and maybe tool bench that I mess. Both are my areas so nobody complains.
I have to replace the shed roof since it's breaking through in a couple of places. If I had kept it clear of pine needles it would still be fine.

All the boards have been cut and stained for two projects: an entertainment center and a combination bookshelf/pipe & tobacco cabinet. Pictures will be taken of the process going forward.

As per Fred's request, here's the pics I promised. The first is a picture of the bookcase and the small entertainment center I made a couple months ago. The last three pictures are of the distressed box I made to hold my Dad's old architectual drawings from his cabinet-maker days.

And for those guys that asked to see the actual drawings, here's a couple pictures.
Note: These are my Dad's, not mine.

Thanks. There's about 100-150 in all. I found them in my Mom's basement the week after my Dad died and I instantly wanted them. As a teenager I helped him build many of the kitchens in the mix of drawings, so it's not only sentimental but also brings back years of memories working alongside my Dad as he taught me the trade.

Detailed teardown, cleaning, and inspection of a Steven/Springfield Model 83 single shot .22LR turnbolt. Den smells of Outers gun oil and BC Sheath. Rifle has a small "US" cartouche on stock and steel butt plate roughly stamped "US TRNG DIV". Rifle is from 1935-1939. Most Stevens/Springfields from the 1930s are difficult to get any meaningful info on so I may never sort this out.

I'm not scared of little girls. Just ask my 3 younger sisters.






Okay, let's be honest....... I was running scared my entire childhood. The g-daughters can have them.
