If You Need a Reason I've spoken often on the benefits of physical work over a workout and then too in view of their being more sedentary work than ever in the history of our world. You don't need to go back much more than a century to find 90% of working-age people were engaged in physically demanding work.

Indoor Planter Sometimes "pretty good" furniture is good enough, even though you may wish you could spend all your precious time in the shop making fancier stuff. When my wife asked me to build a large indoor planter "just like the one in this crafts book" for a sunny hallway, I winced, but thought-what the heck.

It was probably designed for a 31.5 mm hole, which would yield a quarter of a millimeter press fit.

Paying Attention! If it isn't one thing, it's another! For the last several weeks, it has been rainy weather keeping me out of the shop. The last few days have seen a drastic drop in temperature. Brrr! Perhaps I've been living in the South too long, having caused by blood to thin!
