It is just a few days away; the CNY TOGA (Treadle On Gathering and Academy) is being held here. The house is finally presentable. Though I would have loved to wax the floors. (Do you really believe that? Me, on my hands and knees with floor wax and rags?)
The outhouse is ready.
I painted some signs to post along the various routes to the venue. I hope people don't think they read "T06A" I am not good at lettering. My G looks more like a 6.
I set up a few treadles just to see. There is a 6 foot table, too.
Now this little treadle stand is much more portable. We won't be doing any wood working during the TOGA so I won't leave this
one out. It is in pretty sorry shape. I think that the veneer can be
re-glued and it is worth it to me to rescue it. I love its foot print
and its weight. You can see how it would be much lighter. The legs are wood, not cast iron. I probably should have spent the time on this one instead of the homemade one.
A while back I accidentally dropped a coffin top on the floor. I hate it when 100 year old wood meets 7 year old concrete. On the other hand, I do love yellow glue and clamps. You cannot even see where the break was. This was a solid piece of wood. Now it has been repaired and I think that I can get the thing back together without too much more trouble. I wonder, though. If I should reinforce the repair with a patch. I could gently drill some small holes through a piece of luan and using small wood screws screw the luan to the board. This wouldn't have to show since it will be on the inside.
I don't know. I guess I could consult the carpenter.
No more distractions for me, tomorrow. I have a list and I am sticking to it! I just hope that the motor bearing in the shop vac holds out a bit longer.
