Macbeth the Usurper

A Bash

A bashed out a quick bench that "work". It's wobbly, but it works. I'll figure out how to stiffen it up later. I needed the impromptu sawbench so that I could make my sawbench.

Rain. My workshop (outside) is raining, for a week, so I can't saw the oak. Right now, I think it's black oak, but I could so easily be wrong. Anyhow, I need to pile stuff up so that I can saw planks out of the log. My mini-table saw doesn't provide enough support before or behind.

I've started on cleaning up the shed. Therein lies madness.

And finally, it is raining, and the cat has woken me up three times and refused to go out.

We had a folding pavillion last year that we owned for several days, took it to the beach, saw it blow away, and sighed. I finally opened it up again witih the idea of somehow jury-rigging it into working.

Nope. It had breaks on each side. It simply had zero structural integrity. So, I broke it up like sticks. It should not have been so easy, but it was. This thing was made to fail. I'll keep the side-poles, through. We might be able to find a use for them. The rest goes to recycling.

So, I now need another solution to make myself outside workspace.
