Holiday projects…

I had a nice Christmas break but like many, if I don’t leave home, I keep finding small projects on which to work.  Over Christmas, I had a few key things to go.  First off, was to create a weight for the back of the truck, a vehicle useless beyond belief in even the thinnest snowfall.  A few measurements and some concrete later, I had a block weighing about 190kg ready for action.  Luckily, the form I constructed was accurate enough to allow Bob’s warped fork-lift arms under, enabling me to lift it into the truck; now I just need some snow to test it.  The address sign was something I started before Panama trip but figured it was time to dust off the router and get ‘er done.  It’s gorilla-glued to a rock at the front of the house – so far, so good.  Finally, I cleared out a path through the blackberries to the pond, hauled out a few storm-snapped trees, bucked them for firewood and then took the trunk of one alder to make a bench.  By late spring, I figure most of the bushes will grow back and we’ll have a nice little sitting area to watch life on the pond.

Happy New Year!
