how easy it is...

Yesterday, Dillon Ryan and I spent the day in the shop and finish room. Dillon needed to take hundreds of photos of boxes against a white background so that the artists at Fine Woodworking can do a beautiful layout of boxes and hinge types. While Dillon was occupied with the camera and finished boxes, I did preparation work,  and set up work to bring various boxes up to the point that hinges could be applied. We finished the day at 5 PM, and now Dillon gets to enjoy the beauty of the Ozarks in a leisurely fashion as he heads to the airport for an afternoon flight.

We have other articles for the magazine in the hopper, so I expect he will be back. We talked about the challenge it an be for want-to-be authors to get their work featured in Fine Woodworking. The point is that people first of all need to just send in their ideas. If that one simple step is not made first, nothing follows.

We had three pigs perusing the trap last night that did not go in. So we know they are still out there in large numbers, capable of doing the damage they did to our gardens again and again.

Some months ago, I had described the Dunning-Kruger Effect and the Peak of Mount Stupid, and an article has mentioned it in relation to the Trump Campaign.

Today at school, my high school students will work on their shaker boxes.

Make, fix, create, and increase the likelihood by your example, that others learn likewise.
