Did you watch the video, thedoc? If you did, there's not much to be added. If you didn't, don't you think you should before asking?

Looks good, but I would add some triangular gussets to brace between the vertical and horizontal elements of the removable shelf units.

You can's see it from the illustration, but each movable shelf is supported fully by a vertical element in front of the cleat.



(eta: also, that's 3/4 inch plywood. Hella strong enough without a gusset. Will be using a Kreg pocket screw tool to hide most screw holes.)

Okay. I have almost made a whole thing this week. Though to be fair, it was mostly already done.

See, I have this lamp I use. I don't remember where I got it originally. It's recent duty has been as my computer room light (so I don't go blind staring at the monitor in the dark). The problem has always been that it's a 3 position switch, and I never ever have 3 whatty light bulbs to go in it. I keep it plugged into the light switch controlled outlet and for some reason that off-on burns out the bulbs extra double fast. And every time it happens I swear at it but I've never done anything about it.

Until now.

A made my way to the local big box hardware store and bought myself a fancy bottle lamp making kit. And it's almost perfect. I got everything rewired and snapped together and even plugged in! Miraculously, it even works.

BUT.

Where the lamp parts fit into the ancient lamp stand part, things don't fit together in a satisfactory way. The screw part on the lamp parts is too small for the lamp stand, and none of the plastic plug spacers are the right size for me to push it together and make it work. I keep thinking I need something else to fit there to piece it together. Maybe something that's moldable when it's new and hardens into a semipermanent piece when it's all cured together. Now, if only I knew where I could find something like that.

:brainstorm:

I save all my making for Christmas

Made:

Carolers and a snowman out of tp rolls, construction paper, and baby socks (based on this though I made some changes)

Knot puzzles for hubby-family stockings. Hubby cut and sanded, me and kiddo painted them barn red, forest green, and white...total of 10 ready to go

Cranberry/kumquat bread

Gingerbread cookies

Ornament for Kiddo's baby brother. I designed it and my dad made it. It's an oval metal disk with holes drilled appropriately to look like the constellation Orion, painted midnight blue. I was going to put rhinestones for the stars, but it looked good with lights shining through the holes so I left it.

My mom very apologetically informed me that she gave one of the bags I crocheted her out of other bags to a girl at her grocery store who really really wanted it super hard, so I am making her a new one now.

I was surprised she even still had them, but apparently, she's been using them almost every day. Those were like first generation ones, too, so she's getting an upgrade to the current release.

My dad and hubby are the creators in the family, what with their wood and metal working, and mom can at least sew. I can cut and glue...and design stuff for them to make

The funny thing? My dad liked those paper carolers. He's not the kind of guy that pays compliments out of politeness or feigns interest for self esteem boosting ever...but he was all "Those are cute! Did you have a pattern for those, or is this one of your designs?". I was like "What? They're tp rolls with paper glued to them" but he really thought they were cool.

Yesterday I made a pot of 'French Onion Soup', my daughter and one grandson said it tasted good so I'm happy with it, and the daughter says she doesn't like onions. This was a bit different, I cooked some bones from the deer that that grandson had shot during hunting season so it was venison stock not beef stock. My wife makes a really good soup and this was my first try so she was advising me over the phone.

4 batches of Russian teacakes. 2 batches of Earl Grey shortbread. 1 batch of fudge with walnuts. 2 batches of shortbread, 1 with with chocolate topping, 1 plain.
1 more batch of spritz cookies tomorrow, and I'm calling it done.

I had a lady over for dinner on Monday, and I showed her how to make tortillas.

Today I set up a turret lathe and turned down some flanges on replacement drivers for my Rivarossi B&O 2-10-2 engines. I now have enough to re-equip 11 engines plus extra axels, altogether I did 154 drivers on 77 axels. Took me about 1 1/2 hour and about 1 hour to set up.

That you even ask is something of a compliment. :) Never had a 3d model of mine mistaken for a sculpture before. Rendered in Blender.

For Kiddos party tomorrow I have been making cupcakes in ice cream cones. In my test phase I tried all the Internet people's ideas for pouring the batter into the ice cream cone and baking it like that (and the ice cream cone people suggest that too on the box!), and for putting the cone upside down on the batter in a regular paper lined muffin tin, and they don't work right unless you like flat ice cream cones! You know what works? Baking a plain cupcake then shoving it upside down into the ice cream cone.

Stupid Internet people

I will take pics once I have the stand made.
