Glad you're liking the work folks are doing. Sadly, my old Canon G10 died on me rather unexpectedly and I'll not be posting any pics until that issue is resolved.
My last project started out quite well, with this little bulb coming out better than I was expecting.
Somewhere between that and the end, though, my camera gave up the ghost and I couldn't get her to focus properly to save my life.
In real life, the candle holder doesn't look nearly as blurry and Mom was happy with her Christmas present. That's the important part!
On a side note, I've been doing what I can to clean up and organize my shop. To that end, I bought the 4' version of Dewalt's new line of shelves and couldn't be more satisfied with the product. The short shelves are only $80 delivered from Home Depot and there's no way I could have made something similar for that price. It's just pallet shelving, but you don't normally see this heavy-duty a shelf available outside industrial sales sites.
I'd like to replace the cheap shelving I have along the walls with this stuff, but their 6' versions are crazy expensive at something like $250 per unit. I can't swing anything close to that, so the cheap-o stuff will be staying right where it is! The smaller unit, though, is a definite winner.
Of course, now everything is a mess because I had shuffle things around just to clear a spot for the shelves. Soon, though, I'll have a little more organization going on.
Also picked up a 1970's era Black-n-Decker die grinder. It's like a dremel, but on steroids. I love the all-steel construction! 17,000rpm and a 1/4" chuck -- she's dreamy and will help with all the projects I keep planning!
To save some aggravation, everyone in the family got official Three Rivers Forge t-shirts and hoodies for Christmas.
That was a very good decision on my part, turns out, and everyone was happy with what they got. Who knew I'd become a Fashion Diva?
I love the shirts, personally, since they fit me better than anything I can find locally. The only downside is that they're too nice to wear into the shop where I know they'll get all filthy and full of holes. I might order some in black just to hide the inevitable stains a bit better. I don't like wearing black, but....
Anyhow, hope you all had a very merry Christmas, too. Thanks for tuning in and following along on this adventure.
