I think I need my medication now.
You should try some of the medication I'm on.  :snicker1:

Ha, I think I will stick to the one that drives my screws.

After the foundation of my house was fixed, I had to replace two irrigation valves, patch up some of the irrigation lines, the irrigation wires, replace a few sprinklers but not just the sprinklers themselves because they broke the whole thing, replace the block planter, and fix some doors inside that stopped closing.

Unrelated to that, I have to replace the attic ladder because it's bending pretty scary-like when used. A shed needs to be put up because we need the storage space, and I've been putting off trimming the front tree because of all the other stuff. But I need to get it all done before it gets too hot outside because I don't like working out in >100° weather.

I'm mostly through my list so that's good.
Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

It'll be a nice feeling of satisfaction when it's all done.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

That's probably best. Besides, you'll enjoy yours more than mine. :)

Some recent stuff. Not much as it's rather cold in my garage/workshop and the early dark.

Three bandsaw boxes. You've seen the rectangular one before. Also practising varnish finishes. All from the same piece of wood.





Larger hexagonal box.





Tea light experiments. The one at the back opens up.







A little bit of oak end grain for Dark Lightning :)

Good stuff, and you've got some matches with a ship on them.
I'm actually glad I don't have to keep candles for emergencies any more, praise the LED.
My wife still burns candles and pseudo candles and something that looks rather wizardy, it billows.
Could you incorporate a modern light source into one of your creations?
I like these things.
