I’m working on making some rebar fence stakes for the deer fence. I haven’t had a real Vice of my own for a long time. I purchased this a few months ago at Harbor Freight
I finally have a professional mat cutter of my own. When I was just out of high school I worked for Aaron Brothers in La Jolla California. That is where I learned how to make frames cut mats and got a chance frame a lot of really nice artwork. Now that I have some artwork of my own that is ready I’m going to cut my mats and build frames
These pictures show my first mat cut on the new mat cutter. I took one of my sketches out of my sketchbook to do a test. I’m probably going to frame this because Sylvia likes it.
I’m getting ready to smoke some ribs for the Super Bowl party that I’m going to tomorrow. I’ve had this Husqvarna 440 chainsaw sitting in my garage for a few months. I got it at Lowe’s on sale. I have been a Stihl chainsaw person most of my life. But I decided this time around to buy a Husqvarna.
This Husqvarna 440 is perfect for my needs as I’m only doing small cutting chores like cutting firewood for my smoker and maybe taking down some storm damage trees. The quick start guide was great and the chainsaw started right up.
