What I produced:

Podcasts:


Art Stuff

fixed my stool, turned it into a wonky art piece.

Started a few new pieces based on shields and sports balls I find on my daily walks.


DIY Stuff

Made a “brick” style table top from remnants of cherry wood

Made a window, put gas struts on it

Installed my new Shop A/C. And my wife’s, but I have to re-charge hers: The refrigerant leaked out.

Made a set of cleat holders for my Wera Joker wrenches

My internet in the office went out… I thought it was the router, but it was the cable, which is buried underground.
