Pictures of the latest project. It's a curly maple box made for my wife on
I know it's mundane seeing the little project pictures ... but at least it
ain't a discussion of religion, politics, or pointy sticks (I never did get
the pointy stick thing).
Sure you do. They are jerks who need to get a life. I'd suggest
woodworking, or another hobby to relieve the stress, but they don't
want to go there. They'll alway be around. Just ignore them; set
your browser to list by topic and delete entire topics at one go.
It's like sorting junk mail. When it first started people got mad.
Now they just accept it, and it takes only a few seconds to
sortthrough and throw out the trash. Sure it's irritating a times, but
so are little children.
Nice box, good craftsmanship.
Now your wife will have a place to keep her political buttons or offerings
if she decides to join some cultist religion. Do you have a secret
compartment to hide a pointy stick?
Did I miss anything? Oh, don't forget to use a conditioner before you stain
Yep, I really don't know. And I've been here (mostly lurking) for a year
or two now.
I did get the one about the dead cat push sticks. The pukey duck contest
thing seemed odd, but I got that one too. Took me a while to figure out
the big deal with jummywood. Caught on to all the Minwax and Polyshades
jokes, and the bit about using brads until the glue dries.
Never did figure out the big deal about pointy sticks. It seemed like some
people were genuinely using fancy woods to make elaborate pointed sticks.
OK. Actually it's developed into a 2 part thingy. Riginally it was
because every drop-in would ask for free plans without taking the time
to search for them on their own. Showing that they were good enough to
ask but to good to look, whereas everybody else was their spear
carrier. That developed into a spoof of an in-duh-vidual asking for
free plans for pointy sticks. They can be made galootish with
drawknives, spokeshaves, and a dumbhead/shavehorse. Or you can force
them through a dowel plate. The Normite answer is to use dow makers, or
lathes to form your pointy sticks.
The second is in reference to people or weapons being dangerous, and the
jawbones of asses/politicians.
The bottom line was that people expect others to do the legwork that
they are to good to do for themselves.
