Backyard camping night. Chile-lime shrimp tacos on the @tembotusk skottle and s'mores by the campfire with @EatDrinkVanWoman and the kiddo. It'll do until the world opens up again.
Last year I broke the handle on my vise (by abusing it with a cheater bar). Finally got around to making a new one. Turned a couple of end knobs and gave them my favorite motor-oil quench finish. Main shaft is 41L40 - relatively high tensile strength, but machinable.(No quench on shaft so I don't wreck the heat treat). Gave myself a long shaft for a little extra leverage. #IsolationCreation #FixYoShit
These short after-work interludes are my only alone time right now. 10 minutes on the bench swing and one finger of whisky are usually enough break before I tackle fixing dinner for the fam.
What a week! Sheltering with @eatdrinkvanwoman, eating #tacos, drinking @newenglishbrewing #Zumbar, and dreaming of @descendonbend is just about the only thing keeping me sane right now. #stayhome #drinklocal #DescendOnBend
I love it when a plan comes together. Tripod holds up both my wood and gas firepits, getting them up at a better height. It also folds up small enough to fit inside the firepot with the tools. Time for primer and paint... #IsolationCreation
Need to get a little normality back in my life. That means shop time. Been scheming on this one for a little while. Working on a folding set of legs to elevate both my wood and gas fire pits. Optimistic that I'll be able to actually get out camping at some point... #IsolationCreation
Another successful #IsolationBaking session. This time, getting some help and passing on some technique. Wasn't willing to go to the store just for a chance at bread. This is better anyways.
Missing being on the road. Miss the open sky.
