    Pine wood derby cars for one of my chillens and three more for our friends kiddos. They picked the designs!

    Negative, one of them literally wanted a triangle. I call it the Door Stop coupé! lol

    That and they wanted “fast cars”. Subaru doesn’t make any of those.

    Everyone knows that stickers = HP. But did you tune it? Graphite or oil? Polished axles and wheels? 3 or 4 wheels touching the track? Matching wheels? Where is the balance point?

    Sweet! Bet the two of you had a great time doing that. At least it has an engine that doesn't break ringlands and need new head gaskets.

    It's taken me all summer chipping away 1-2 hours at a time on the 1 it 2 free weekends a month, but finally in the home stretch. Gonna try to get the walls (lp smartside panels) and roof on this weekend. Then gonna try to figure out the rooftop garden planter situation in the spring maybe...

    Neato... are you going to do a solar powered fan or something too? In the sun, those boxes get hot.

    Not sure TBH. Might do another window or air exchanger on the side opposite the doorway. Should get decent airflow through the cedar flooring. Kinda playing it by ear based on whether the dogs end up laying in it or not. Might end up trashing the whole thing if they only use the deck portion lol

    Otherwise another option is to do planter on top of an awning over the deck half and do a regular roof.

    Sometimes it's the simplest things that get the most attention.

    Did a couple of trivets out of scrap wood from around the shop to use it up rather than toss it out and I've gotten more compliments on these (even if the one does look like a light switch cover) than pretty much anything I've done for a long time. Going to do a lazy susan out of similar scraps once I have enough laying around.

    Can you name all of the woods?

    It's a rivet made out of a tree (wood). Everyone knows that. What do I win?

    Random thing that happened tonight. Backstory: I was messing around on the lathe last spring with some scraps of Walnut and made a little ring that my 2 year old daughter likes to play with. Well her fingers must be getting bigger because tonight after some books before bed she started complaining that her finger hurt and needed help getting her ring off. That sucker was stuck on there pretty good. It's now past nine, her ring is in two pieces and she's finally going back to bed.

    Lol. I prefer the circular saw in that application. Less bouncing around.

    Yeah, a couple of spots i may have gotten pissed at the stain and tried to kill it. :(

    Stain and then polyurethane. Thought about leaving, but there is alot of contrast going on.

    The raw wood would have looked really nice with some polyurethane. But because it’s red oak, it has a pinkish hue to it. Wife didn’t like the pinkish hue...medium brown it is dear!

    We are entertaining installing hard surface floors in our living and dining room (new puppy and currently old carpet). Hot and trendy vinyl plank is just the millennial generation's sheet vinyl and engineered wood laminate makes me feel like I am walking in a retail clothing store. Myself, I'm leaning towards old school real hardwood that is finished after installation. Your thoughts since you are dealing with refinishing that material (do you know what caused the discoloration?). Thanks for any insight.

    How big of a dog? Breed? Big dogs are really hard on some hardwoods. You end up with heavy scratches in the polyurethane and sometimes into the wood. If a small dog, you’d probably be ok. The damage on my floor was more than likely water or pet urine damage. It goes deep and these floors will not be able to be sanded again because of it.

    Just under seven pounds currently and close if not full grown weight-wise (9 month-old Maltese/Shih Tzu mix).

    I assume this is the first time you have sanded those floors? How much material did you end up taking off?

    Maybe carpet is the way to go (again).
