I had a great Father’s Day. I got to sleep in. Not too late, but later than usual. I taught two of my children how to make eggs sunny side up and had a nice simple breakfast. Normally I don’t eat breakfast, but I have started taking an anti-inflamatory again the tears my stomach up so I have to eat some thing with it.
My wife and the kids got me a tent for Father’s Day. It is frickin’ huge. 13′ x 10′. We set it up in the front yard and all goofed around in it for a while. We plan on taking it with us when we go to Arkansas to see my mom for the July 4th holiday weekend.
Now I know that some of this doesn’t mean a damn thing to any of you and you might even have wondered how in the hell you have even made it this far into the post. Well, there is a payday. I have been working on a few projects and I am happy to have had the help of my children and the time to actually work on them.
Project #1: A Pulp City table. The first in a series of tables, I am currently working on a cemetery that will have hills on each side of the 2′ x 3′ board. Centered in the board will be a mausoleum. Expect a tutorial with images soon.
Project #2: A new gaming area in my basement. I have been using two fold up tables to house a basic 4′ x 4′ Warmachine/Hordes table. I have taken an old (and free) 4′ x 8′ model train table and have planned to replace the legs with some legs that resemble I-beams made of 1×4′s. I created 6 of these legs at 35″ tall and will be attaching them to the table. The way the table was made, I have a 3.5″ deep area that will be below the play area for storage or, should I feel the urge, a way to do a 3D table for a great deal of depth and height for rivers and maybe even some bridges over lower passage ways. anything is possible. Expect images to be forth coming. I only got 3 of the legs’ pilot holes drilled, but I expect to be able to finish those tomorrow and maybe even attach the legs too.
