I am shopping for a sprayer for applying the finish to my tables etc as I build them.

Hello FredS
Horsehair brushes are no good?
They are. I usually wipe finish in with a rag, though. I’m just wanting to speed up the process on larger projects.

I found a half full luxury pouch of Prince Albert in the very back of my lower desk drawer. :dance:
It's got to be five years old or more. And it's still moist.
Cares. They are happening.

Please tell me you had the first pinch in a cob, please.

Excellent.

I just repurposed a Rusty pipe sock as a rosary case. I think it's what he would have wanted.

Kids' asked what I wanted for Christmas. I told them I'd like a Klein bottle. Same as last year. Didn't get it. Now they're intrigued.

I spent a half hour in an MRI machine last night.
Now I know how it feels to be shot out of a cannon.
Without actually being shot out of a cannon.

They put headphones on me to drown out the noise, but
the noise drowned out the music on the headphones.

My two older sons work for the railroad. The second oldest has passed all the tests to be an engineer.

President Bush's train should arrive in town in about 40 minutes. It's raining here.

Just watched the 21 jet flyover for Bush's funeral. One plane from the last group of 4 pealed off and climbed into the clouds. Quite moving.

Saw the train on TV.
As far as high profile funerals go this was one of the best ever.

My wife and kids went out to watch it as it entered College Station. We're going to try to go to the graveside this weekend if we can find parking.
