Jen and I tested the beautiful scythe that Greg sent today. We harvested mulch for some hazelnut trees that we are planning to get.

Some much needed plumbing work on the shower shack. We are running new pipes inside the wall to protect them from UV degradation

I enjoyed the shapes of the latches for the access doors.

Part of our Library overhaul includes several new desk and co-working stations, as well as a place to hold planning meetings. Today we hid from the rain and did some play acting to nail down dimensions for this project.

Subtle adjustments to the slope helps to direct water away from the bermshed posts. I’m learning so much about earth works at Wheaton Labs.

I like wood working. It is good. I like the piles of shavings, reminders of the days labor. I like the smell of the sap, filling the room and sticking to the inside of my nose. I like the lines in the grain. I like that I can do it with my own hands, the way my father did, and his father before him. I like that the bugs work the wood, living in it and eating of it. I like that I will be reminded of all these things while l sit at this desk.

Nice plane. How long did it take for you guys to flatten the pole?

So you got a family tradition you're on board with? That's great when it happens right. Can give a person a running start. And WL definitely has enough projects to run with! <g>

Cheers,
Rufus
