Well, I have been quiet for a while...Christmas was Busy...yep..for all us
toymakers. But after the rust, came the lull...and boy, did we ever have a
lull....coulda shot off a gun in my small shop and not have worried about
hittin' anyone. However, using time wisely is something I have learned to
do of late...(being 48 doesn't hurt either!)...I decided to finish the
kitchen renovation I started 2, yes 2 years ago. It started with a new wood
floor...I machined every square inch and laid it all myself....sanded and
finished it too. Put up the new wainscoting and then stopped. Well, last
week, I fixed the hole in the ceiling where the hot water heater used to be
and then I got busy. Rewallpapered the whole kitchen and dining room. Well
I couldn't stop there...I looked at the tired moldings (what there were of
them) and decided that I'd make new ones... So I called the local yard and
ordered some timber as we say here in New Zealand. Roughsawn to boot. I
made the Dewalt 735ex (240 volt version) work like crazy...but I milled up
some of the nicest molding and rosettes for all the windows and doors....
Now I look at it and smile..."I did it all myself!"
however,,God made the trees!
