I've gotten started on making a new king size bed frame for the wife and I. Nothing too intricate, but also not from China.

How can I help you, and/or make you smile, today?

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know.

Joy is not a feeling. It is a strength. Some people are stupid, that's all there is to it. (And sometimes that stupid person is me/you.) Sometimes you just have to let stupid people be stupid. Don't let stupid steal your joy.

Holding onto unforgiveness and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting that other person to die. Anger will eat you up.

I made a hummingbird feeder heater.

The heart of the feeder is a thermo cube that I installed between the outdoor outlet and the heater.

https://www.homedepot.com/p/120-VAC-15A ... /100210525

For the heater itself, I used a clamp work light with a low-wattage light bulb (15w, IIRC) for the heat source. Just warm enough so you can hold it in your hand, not burn you. Don't want to make the juice too hot for the little guys.

I topped it with an upside-down Noosa yogurt container and wrapped it and each electrical connection with plastic bags.

The heater was then mounted on a long garden stake tall enough to put the warmer under the feeder which I mounted on the window.

You can see that the warmer is on because of the red glow of the container and the light shining through the holes in the lamp. It got down to about 26 degs here and ordinarily, the juice would have frozen.

Went to McClendon's today for some Daly's or Minwax stain. Fruitwood. Fucking fruitwood. It's a staple stain. "Nope, don't have it." nor do they carry the little ketchup packet-like samples.
Same deal with HD. (although it looks like there may be a trend to paint counter tintable stains/urethan.

So, frack. Now I have to travel further afield to try to match a color on aged wood (always a fracking challenge and an exercise in compromises)

Just some Lincoln hard face gas shielded flux core. “Dual shield” if Esab won’t sue me.

That's the neatest hardface job that I've seen. Sets the bar high for a few jobs that I have coming up in the spring/summer.

I'm looking for leather lacing for an antique machine project... The same thickness/size as regular boot laces (or maybe a bit thicker) but in much longer lengths.
The stuff that is normally sold as leather "lacing" is thin... it is the kind of stuff that is used as decorative stitching on some leather goods.

My searches have come up empty for 25+ yard pieces of what might be called boot lacing, or thicker.
Any one know of a source?

I always ask folks, who may carry stuff in the category of goods for which I am searching but which they do not provide, if they know where to source....
