This is your last reminder for the the wholesale fabric and trim show to be held the 21st and 22nd at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago. Quite a few people from the forum are meeting, log in for the details. Mr. Zipper has sweetened the pot by promising to buy the first round. Gotta love that guy.
So what will you be doing this weekend? Me, I’m building dog houses. I was surprised that Home Depot doesn’t sell them, nor kits either. Wal-mart only sells plastic cubicles an eighth of an inch thick. They were ugly anyway. As though anyone would ever mistake my work for that of a finish carpenter. Mine will probably be closer to dog hovels or dog shacks than dog houses but dogs don’t care. It is a major pain in the patootie to cut plywood sheets on a table saw -if you’re a girl, limited upper body strength and of course, none of the requisite center of gravity. If you have any suggestions for successful projects, don’t be shy.
As usual, below are the entries published on this site over the past five years. As ever, there’s about 2,000 more in the archives. Enjoy the lovely autumn weekend.
