  • second baluster stick

    Back in the shop at last. I rounded off the top of the baluster and applide the patterns for the dog wood flowers. Just a starting point may ajust lay out as I go.

      Neat idea! Makes me think back to when I was a kid and we would takes balusters and parts of wooden chairs and pretend that they were rifles while we played soldiers around the neighborhood. Of course that was not long after WWII and we'd fight over who was going to play the bad guys and who was going to play the US Military. You might say that we self indoctrinated ourselves for years later when we joined up to go to Vietnam. That sure didn't turn out like our games!

        We grew up using our imaginations to play making toys out of every thing. My skateboard was a 2”x 4” with a steel roller skate nailed on the bottom. My dad wouldn’t buy it if he thought there was a way to make it. I grew up in military school. Played war games from about 4th grade though high school. Little did we know when it came to the reality of combat.

                  I agree! A heat index of around 105° is not conducive to an enjoyable afternoon of carving.
