|I started by taking the little table apart to see what I was working with. Notice that one section of the bottom rails is already broken. That will not be fun!|
|Stripper at work!! No not the topless kind!|
|My son took this picture when I wasn't looking. He did a pretty good job capturing his old man really hunkering down and working that paint off of that leg!|
|Not sanded yet, but most of the paint is gone off of each leg! That was an all afternoon job. I did take breaks to play catch and feed the pitching machine for my little man!|
|After church I decided to see if I could finish up the sanding on the top shelf. I had to take a belt sander to it, but I think it will turn out just fine. I am hoping that a coat of stain will help hide the wood filler that someone left me!|
Overall I felt like I got a lot done. I know it may not look like much, but you will have to trust me when I say that I already have a good bit of hours in on this project. The little table is ruff and it has a long way to go, but I like the small challenges that it is giving me and I hope that I can overcome them and end up with a nice little piece when I am finished! As the afternoon was drawing to a close, I fetched my reward for a hard days work! See below....
My wife gave me an oil-less turkey fryer for Christmas. As I was working in the shop I decided to give that thing a whirl! This is what I was blessed with. I will never fry another turkey the old fashion way. This thing was a piece of cake! I just rubbed it down with some seasoning and placed it in the cooker for about an hour and a half. It is delicious and as juicy as it can be. Turkey sandwiches anyone????
Here's to great weekends!!
