Shop update #39 (7-25-18)

Friday evening we went to the local park for the latest installment of our communities’ Concert in the Park series.  It was a Foo Fighter cover band and they weren’t too bad.  My wife and I had some Philly Cheese Steak fries and hung out with friends.  I brought the washer toss game and there were also some cornhole and giant jenga games there that we all played.    

Around 1:00 am that night I started throwing up every  hour and a half until 9:00 am.  I pretty much didn’t get back out of bed until Sunday.

I had already carved out the name plaques for my son’s Boy Scout troop the weekend before so I gave them a coat of spray polyurethane before lunch and let them dry for an hour.

Once the poly was dry I gave them a coat of gloss black spray paint and let that dry for about 3 hours in the 100+ degree direct sunlight.


Once the black paint was dry I sanded everything down with 120 grit sandpaper.

I then gave all sides 2 coats of satin spray polyurethane.  One of the scout laws is that a scout is thrifty so we reuse old name plates of boys that have dropped out of the troop (2nd picture).

I feel much better now, but between throwing up all night and not eating much on Saturday I lost a total of 6 lbs and my ribs were sore for 2 or 3 days.
