    I made my daughter a platform bed. She loved it. My Wife didn’t like anything that we would have bought, so I made exactly what she wanted.

    My old bandsaw in my woodshop had an issue with a corroded and frozen blade thrust bearing adjustment.
    It required heat and force to get it freed up enough to remove the stuck part:

    I mauled it pretty good with both a pipe wrench and a hammer.
    Per usual, I neglected to take a picture of the new part I machined for it's replacement.

    The small end was drilled and tapped to accept a 1/4-20 fastener to retain a ball bearing, and the opposite end was grooved for the adjuster slot.

    Where it is installed on the machine, it isn't visible, but every bit as important for it to be there in working condition.

    'dribble bibs' for a 3month old baby.
    (from an old white towel and various other clothing he's grown out of)

    pinking shears, triangle shapes and press studs.
    simple.

    easy make, easy launder, cheap and repurposed.
    hugely practical.

    Chicken soft tacos with chipotle hot sauce. They were amazingly tasty. I can kick Taco Bell’s ass any day of the week.

    My terrible first attempt at a gingerbread house.
    IMG_20191206_113124.jpg IMG_20191207_235551.jpg
    We where allowed to make a gingerbread house or make something in the workshop as part of some christmas fun at work last Friday. While the template looks good (a bit small), there where a lot of issues with making it. From having the main body upside down, to dropping the side structure into the pan of melted sugar.
    At least I only lightly burned my hands. Can't say the same about two colleagues.


    Also this is a prototype of a tool to make tinder out of shredded office documents. I'm currently waiting for a improved version of it to be made.

    Terrible? Nay. The only real question is: when do you get to eat it?

    We where all terrible at making houses. But the thing that matters is that we all had fun making them.
    Traditions seems to indicate that it should be eaten it in rumjula (period between christmas and new year). Though i will probably forget about it until January.

    I don’t think it looks terrible at all. It’s really cute!

    It's not quite finished yet, have to cover over and line the insulation with some sort of waterproof material. It's a small halogen light fixture inside a metal cookie tin, with a heatproof water bowl sitting on top. It's meant to keep the water outside from freezing in winter. As I feed feral cats and they need water.

    At first the water froze two inches deep and remained liquid underneath when the air temperature was -10 C or 14 F.

    I then lined the sides and bottom with pieces of XPS blue insulation board with an R value of 5.0. Since the bowl is round I've also placed rockwool insulation around the spaces in the bowl to insulate the gaps between the squared blue board and bowl.

    So far at -13 C or 8.6 F the water remains in a liquid state with a water temperature of 63 F or 17.22 C and has not frozen over. I'll take pictures in the next few days, when the darkest/shortest day of the year is over.

    I found new accountant for our company. We will work online, it is quite interesting and new way of cooperation. I found such services from an online company, that works in UK and other countries.

    If you are interested in which company, you could PM me.

    Made vegetable soup today. I have wanted to make it for a while, but christmas as all that got in the way until today. It had a bit to much pepper in it, but was still pretty delicious.
