    Then I made a center ring to hold the forward bullet part to the shell. No pics. Too dirty.
    Then I cleaned up the shell and hammered the opening round...

    Well, I finally did something in my shop for the first time since December!
    My neighbor wanted a basic square cologne sampler rack.
    Of course I couldnt make a "basic" one.
    So I went through my stash of wood. I found a cool looking rough log cut off. Sanded the bottom and backside flat, then just touched up the sides to make them look even.
    Measured out equal distance 1/2" hole spacing, and drilled em with a forstner bit.
    Here tis thy result...

    That’s pretty nice RipJack.

    Did you use a drill press? I don’t think I could’ve got those holes all in a straight line without some kind of a jig and a drill brushing.

    Well I finally got my woodwork finished for the day. I put up this panel and made a crown molding and trim boards.

    I didn’t have enough light for a really good photograph, and all the knickknacks aren’t up yet.

    92BC2B03-D680-4FB4-B8F9-88A9D3095E02.jpeg I didn’t have access to any really exotic woods and this is just ordinary Birch ply and whitewood moldings from Lowe’s.

    I stained the crown & trim boards four different ways And rubbed it out between each coat. I rubbed them out last with polyurethane but my wife wanted them glossy so I shot them with some spray can poly.

    it’s been in the hundreds every day this week and I’ve been out there in the mornings working under a tarp so as not to burn out. I am able to air condition the garage and do this indoors but I don’t want all the sawdust in my cars and parts.

    I like that idea. If I had a fireplace I may have tried that too....

    It’s hot but it has not been muggy and it really cools off at night. Yesterday, 107 at 4pm then 72 by 2am.

    Plus, I have a serious air conditioner.

    Back when I was 20 years old I was working out on the asphalt in that kind of heat.

    It toughens you up pretty fast.

    Then I work in the office for 45 years which has exactly the opposite effect. :)

    Wow that's a really fuzzy photo!
    My apologies. I will have to take a better one.
    It looked OK on the phone, but on the big monitor it sucks rocks.
