      Yeah, you'd think that being on the workbench would give that project a clue that it needs to get done...but it never seems to work that way.

      yes, when the workbench is full of half-done projects, one tends to start using the kitchen table....

      Or, in my case, the living room coffee table.

      So, apparently it's up to me to get to projects on the "work" bench.   How misnamed is that?  

      Anyway, I glued the other side in place...

      Maybe what Bruce needs is a life coach for himself to get him motivated to finish this !

      Who knows what it will take?

      Anyway, I'm looking at the divider...

      It's a bit tight, but I think it will be OK.

      It's really only tight on the peon side...

      Nice work Bruce!  What a bold posting...a photo of your work bench.  For years I've felt bad about the multi mid project appearance of my work bench!  Feeling much better now that I see it is more of a normal situation.  I feel so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I'm normal, just feeling better.

      Ah - you will notice I didn't include a photo of my workbench...

      OKAY...FINALLY trying to get back into this one.   Wow...just trying to find all the pieces parts is an adventure in itself...

      And, to make some further excuses...

      This was probably NOT the right book to read back in January when I used a BIG knife to cut through my hand.   A visit to the emergency room led me to discover exactly why my hand would NOT stop bleeding - I had nicked a couple of arteries (in my hand??? who knew?? )   Anyway, 17 stitches later (two for the arteries) and a bit of time, I now have a nice scar, but I seem to have run out of really good excuses - and, although an emercency room visit IS a good excuse, they apparently frown on visits when there's nothing wrong...(yeah, ask me how I know that!)

      Anyway, I've just rebuilt a jig for the windows...pictures later, but I think I found all of the pieces I need.   I need to finish this for TrainOps or the BD will have my hide...

      I would promise not to do anything stupid again, but history is really not on my side...

      Much like my earlier build, I built up some styrene on a window plug to allow me to get the same spacing for each window frame...

      Seems to work...

      What the hell would he do with that? Sure wouldn't make a decent rug.

      Well, that’s probably true, but the space in front of the basement refrigerator is vacant and I don’t want to take any chances
