A friend asked me to make a small ammo box for him to give to his son for Christmas. It is modeled after the one his own father gave him when he was a kid.


Hello FredS
Looks kinda rough. Maybe you could outsource the sanding to that guy in Texas.


Hello mont974x4
Maybe. How many tacos would this cost me ?


Hello FredS
12 bones. Exactly enough to buy that new sander he's been drooling over.

I'm no expert, but I think those fish will need water in there.

Infrastructure first. Adding 60-75% total water is on the schedule for tomorrow.

The kids are making bird houses for each of the three grandparents. My oldest, who is making hers for my dad, decided to model it after my dad's mother's house. She passed away a few months ago at 95. Her husband, my Papaw, passed about 12 years ago. You'd be hard pressed to find a couple that loved each other more than they loved each other. Absolutely wonderful parents and grandparents they were. I think my dad will really appreciate this...

This was my Mamaw and Papaw's house...

I'm not doing anything with this slab (I can't imagine what it will sell for) but damn! what a nice piece of wood. This is at a mill down by Denver. I can't figure out how this tree was growing that this slab has a live edge on 3 sides.

Hot mama!!! That is some big wood! I don’t know what I could possibly do with that but I am coveting it hard right now!

That would make an amazing conference table.



I picked up some ash to make table legs.

Installed new sway bar end links on my f150 today. It's had a bad rubbing/popping sound coming from somewhere in the suspension when I turn at low speed for some time. After taking the front tires off I noticed that the top bushings were completely gone so figured that had to be what was causing that noise. It wasn't. Got them installed and went for a little test drive.....still doing it.

Crap.

My ‘04 Expedition has been doing that for years. I took it to my guy once to see if he could fix it, since it sounds terrible. He sold me a bunch of work on other crap - but it still makes that sound. If you figure it out, let me know. It still runs like a champ - but that sound does give me the willies.

Do you remember what all you had done to it? Did you replace the tie rods?
