I have been friends with Jay Bates for a while now.  He invited me to come visit him and we figured we’d be able to have a little fun and possibly do some projects together.  Some of the projects we had planned are still a go, and some others have gone to the wayside to make room for some others.  Regardless, I’m sure it will a blast.  Hoping to have some of it out by the time I leave and the other stuff when I get back and have time to edit it to show.  Shawn Stone stopped by last night and not much woodworking got done but many laughs were had.  Sometimes that is what you need to do in life, relax and have fun.  Don’t get me wrong, we are working on some cool stuff but the fun was just too easy to come by.

In case you guys missed the below video, check it out!  Perfect example of the craziness.
