In the olden days my compadre specialized in odd handyman jobs ~ one of which was disposing of trees and trunks that were overgrown for the space.
He would dig out as much as possible and cut the roots with a Sawzall ~ then slide the floor jack into place and go to work.
In the process the floor jack was unsupported beneath so the frame got all tweaked. He asked me to fix it for him as best I could ~ try as I may only three wheels were ever on the ground until the lifting began. He willed me the HF floor jack and I still use it for tire rotations and oil changes to this day.

Hey Jerome ~ your rig looks a lot better than my compadre's idea !

Another storm blew threw town bringing high winds and some much needed rain.
I have a bit of cleanup work ahead of me as soon as these fallen palm fronds dry out.

My most recent woodworking project. It's a tool chest custom designed for a particular hobby (coin collecting), done in the style of a machinists chest.

It's a thing of beauty ~ Good Job !

As a kid in the early 60s we built and raced our own slot cars. A fellow would take us from one event to the next and we needed a box for all our cars, controllers and spare parts.
I bought a tackle box similar in design to what you have made ~ however, the build quality on our units pale in comparison to yours. Seeing your creation brought back a lot of memories.
Thanks!

You just don't hear stories like this anymore. Kids aren't allowed to go anywhere without their parents.

A friend was a in scouts back in the late 80s, his scout leader took him and two other scouts on a cross country camping trip in the scout leader's van. I think it was a three or four week trip. All the boys were teenagers. None of the parents thought it was unusual and according to my friend there was no inappropriate touching.
I think the vast majority of adults could be trusted in this scenario, but all you need is one weirdo and everybody loses trust.

I think internet and proliferation of news, mostly negative bad news has made us very untrusting. I'm sure there were just as many crazy people back then as there are now, but then it just wasnt broadcasted to everyone's news feed on facebook.

Did anyone else notice this went from woodworking to a discussion of perverts in about four posts? My work here is done.

I dunno, that looks pretty well built. I like the hardware. I was looking for corner protectors similar to those that but I couldn't find them in the finish that I wanted.
