Can You Dig It!

How is it going my friends.  Sorry for not getting some updates in here sooner, just been busy. Can you dig it.

I was on the road last week.  Got to travel to Los Angeles for client meetings.  Have to say that I had a great time.  Had the opportunity to meet with several of our clients and learn more about them and to see how else we could assist them.  It was a jam packed week.  I had scheduled nine meetings and ended up having two cancellations.  I spent a lot of time in the car and didn't cover to many miles.  Spent a lot of time in traffic.

One of the highlights was that I got to meet Jay Leno.   I was in the restaurant already seated.  Jay came in a few minutes later and was at the table next to me.  I was that guy and stopped him to say hello and get a picture.  We briefly talked corvettes.

I got home late Friday night, guess it was about 11PM.  Saturday the weather was awesome here. I made my way over the shop to do some cleaning and try to finish up a few outstanding projects.

I worked on the base for my Lemoine Star Table.  I got it tore down and sanded.  Cleaned it all up and painted it white to match the table.   I also cleaned up one of my old tiller wheels and primed it for painting.

Sunday wasn't as warm, I think the high was 45.   I really needed the temperature to be up in the 60's as I was ready to spray sealer on my table base so that I could finish up the project.  Well it looks like it will be warm enough this weekend.  Really excited to get this project done.  It looks really awesome.

I brought home my tiller wheel and worked on the dining room table to paint it.  I am going with a poppy theme.  This is the first of 3 or 4 that I will be painting.  
I have several tiller wheels of different types and designs and will be creating a large piece of yard art.  This one will be made using cast iron pipe to build out the stems and base to support the tiller wheels weight.  Each of them way about 12 to 15 pounds.  Would hate for one of these to fall on someone.  Definitely do some damage to you.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been doing some makeovers on some old hand irons that I came into.  This is a picture of the second one that completed.  Candy is using them as bookends.

Home this week.  The weather out in CA was in the 80's.  Loved it, being that it has been so cold in Colorado.   As I am writing this it is cold and snowing.  I think the weather man said we could get 2 to 4 inches.  Joy, joy!
