And Lastly, A Little Fun At My Neighbor's Expense

"Handyman of the Year?"
Walking is a great way to get a little exercise, clear your head, or just enjoy the great outdoors. One of my favorite places to walk is through a series of trails I have, over time, created through a couple of square miles or so of woods and wetlands. Of course, getting to those woods means I have to walk about a mile through suburbia. Along the way I have seen some interesting sights.

This is a great example… What do you do when the snowplow knocks down your mailbox? Well, you fix it, of course! I'm still trying to figure out what the piece of wood hanging out the back is supposed to accomplish.


Next month in the Down To Earth Woodworker Steve provides plans and instructions for a tool sharpening system that will revolutionize the way we all maintain our edge tools. It is truly amazing. Steve will also (finally) show us the finished matching live edge coffee tables he has been building and describe his design criteria for a new sanding center for the shop. Stay tuned!
