    here is some candle holders I made a couple of years ago. They are made out of pine I had laying around. I stained them red oak and three coats of polyurethane.

    Thanks folks I appreciate the post. I got saw dust in my system methinks.

    Jim, no I don't have the shop set up yet. We bought a house last July. It is 100 years old. We don't have to replace any walls, it just needed cleaning and paint. The garage is made for a model-T I think. The inside dimensions is 18 X 12 feet, the truck will not fit into it so I made it my shop. It is much bigger than the shed I had (8 X 8). So I felt I had a big shop until I put tools in it. Anyway the previous owner ran one number 14 wire from the house to the shop to run two lights and the door. So I have to rewire and insulate. It got cold on me so I haven't done anything as of yet. It's going to be one of my summer projects. June wants me to get it finished because it benefits her too (most!!:sweet_kiss: ).
    My shop has always been in the yard. I remember you telling me, Jim, that the shop is used to store tools. I took that to heart. My biggest problem is saw dust. I use to saw and the dust went into the yard which helped the grass, now I sweep all the time, shop vac has been used more the last 7 months that in the last 3 years. But I sure do love the smell of wood being cut.

    Gary, it isn't the size of your shop, it is the fun you have slangin sawdust that counts and the finished projects are just gravy. I forgot that up your way when it gets cold it is really cold. You are going to love it when you get all set up the way you want it to be. We want a bunch of pictures of your shop when you do get it set up, buddy.

    Dust is just one of those evils that comes with a shop! LOL
    When the weather is good, I'll sometimes open all the doors and windows and use my leaf blower and blow out what I can't sweep up or get with the shop vac.
    Makes one heck of a cloud!!
