|Earlier this summer there were some doubters (me) that wondered if Jim had left starting the crib and dresser a little too late. Well, we (I know there were others) can all relax, things are moving along right on schedule. That is the baby and the crib/dresser are right on schedule. Jim started the staining process this week. He uses a wood condition first, a coat of stain brushed on and wiped off, then to be followed by multiple coats of clear polyurethane. I think these pictures are lighter than it really is. |

Last week on Tuesday night as we finished supper our electricity went out and you could tell it was going to be out for awhile. The outage was actually due to an auto accident and it was a wide spread area that was effected, so Barr Township wasn't first on the repair list.Jim didn't let a little power outage keep him from his appointed duties!
Notice the flashlight in the background.
|Camping lantern really didn't help much in that large of space.|
|I guess this is how the Amish have to work. Maybe he needs to put in some gas lights.|
|Even though the blogger was fallen behind in keeping up to date on the progress of the baby bed and dresser, Jim has continued working faithfully and making great progress.|
|Took a break to go to Kansas for the weekend and take in the K-State game at Arrowhead. A little warm for a football game, but got a KSU victory.|
|Gluing boards for dresser top.|
|Dresser top glued up and sanded.|
|I missed a few steps, but dresser mostly together.|
|Working on drawer slides.|
|Looks like they work.|

Sally and Dan needed someone to watch Trent on Friday, so Jim decided to add a day to his weekend and came along for a fun day with Trent. It was a perfect day for a visit to see the Clydesdale's home. We had a great time.
|Papa Jim and Trent checking out Jerry.|
|This was one of the young colts in the outside pen enjoying the great weather.|
|Back to work in the shop on Saturday.|
|Just in case you wonder why Jim always has clamps on his Christmas list!|
|Jim has decided if he didn't have to go to work, he could really get a lot accomplished. Besides working on the bed/dresser he ran weed-eater, worked in the office and watched a little Illinois, K-State and the Cardinals.|
