We are moving to a new house next month so I am working on packing. Packing in the morning, packing at noon...

Better get started now if you expect to drink all that hooch in the next month. I bet bloodhound would help you out with that too.

Stop it Goose. It's a low speed, off road vehicle to use around the ranch, not barrel down the highway.

I was going to warn Gabe about the safety nazis because that thing violates a million rules - no doors, sharp edges, no belts in back, yada yada yada, but Goose beat me too it and proved the point.
A million rules indeed, you've only scratched the surface. But those rules being broken are half the point, as you well know. Hey, it's against the "rules" to take a sawsall and chop the top off the directors suv, but heck if they didn't do it. It doesn't have brakes, seat belts, finished edges, a valid registration, or a million other things, but these 15 year old kids are learning a lot about life in it.

It's now a gator type utility vehicle with 4 wheel drive and a 4.2 V6 :bacon:

I've heard the best boxes are the cases scotch is delivered in. Scotch that's at least 12 years old.

Building a coffee table with storage a for a customer. The back board of the lid will be stationary and the rest will hinge so they won't have to remove what's on top to open it. The bottom will be a white'ish color and the top will be stained. Making two end tables to go with it.

Reburbished an estate Savinelli De Luxe Milano 814 KS Billiard today. Had to resurface & re-stain the rim. It will dry overnight and I'll polish the rim and wax the pipe. Stem was badly oxidized but I was able to bring it back to like new. Will post a pic when it's done.

The theme of the past month and a half for me has been cleaning, organizing, and getting rid of stuff. My basement and garage had become unusable because they served as drop zones for the leftovers of projects on the house for the past two years. My woodshed was a mess, and I had the remains of a torn down shed behind my garage. The leftover shed is now ashes, my wood is neatly stacked. My garage is nearly done; things just need put back as it played host to a garage sale yesterday, and my car (Pontiac Torrent) is loaded with donation items. My wife also organized one of the attics we have (A-frame house), and I have a cartload of lumber and trim cut offs from the house's construction (in 1954, my grandfather threw nothing away) that will become firewood. The basement still needs work, and I may have to build some shelves. My wife and I are both happy that we will be able to park our cars in the garage now.

Through this, I'm glad my dad works for a garbage company, and is a scrapper. Every week day for about two weeks while working on the garage, I would show up with my ATV cart loaded and park in the middle of his driveway. Then, I would make a contribution to his scrap metal piles and toss the trash onto his pickup

Thanks. Yes, it is and it has a really nice stout, beefy feel and look to it. More so than other Sav Billiards I've experienced.

Stout and beefy huh? The oval shank really gives it a light look for such a beefy pipe.

On a hot Sunday afternoon, I decided to give my bicycle chain and gears a LONG overdue cleaning and lube. This Finish Line Pro device works fine for me. I like it in that it has a magnet at the bottom which catches most of the metal particles. For a thorough cleaning, I use paint thinner in the device and then dry the chain well before applying the Finish Line Dry Teflon-Plus, one drop at a time. It sets up with a dry 'wax-like' synthetic film that helps keep your chain clean by not absorbing excessive amounts grit, grime, or dust. On tomorrow morning's ride, I'll have butter like silent shifting!
