Wood shop at the foundry
I had a ton of fun. I have pretty much zero knowledge about woodworking, so when we were able to take this scrody piece of wood, mill it to a perfect rectangle, and then route and finish it into a cutting board it was pretty amazing to come out and feel the end result.
The great part about it is they have all the tools and stations set up and organized. I don't think I would have tried it if you have to buy all the tools.
I'd consider going back and getting a membership to learn more but I want to have a specific project to work on before I do that.
Here are some pictures of Terry planing his wood. It's pretty butch.

(e:twisted), I am working on getting estrip infrastructure ready. We severely neglected the server and host estrip was on, to be expanded on in another post!

So long, trusty steed
But anyways I wanted to write about my bike. Around a month and a half back on a Fwednesday night ride, my poor Trek FX 7.1 bit the dust. The rear drop out snapped right off at the axle! Only 8 years old - I guess I might have killed it by pack mule-ing groceries.
Here it is in it's final moments, looking undignified.
It was my first real bike and first real purchase that took me to my first job, on my first dates, around at school and everywhere!
Here's baby-faced me with it in 2012:
Luckily I was able to find a warranty claim on it with Trek. They sent me back a new Trek FX 1. I thought it was time to move on to a touring bike though, so I traded it in and now I am riding this beautiful Surly Trucker.
Drop handlebars and a steel frame have changed my life - same weight as my old bike and it doesn't even flinch at a pothole or a full load of groceries. I've already ridden to Niagara Falls on it with (e:terry).

Yesterday (e:terry) spotted a snowy owl on top of our garage. She is so cute. I love the way her head just rotates around. I'd prefer if she would stay away from our yards rabbits and mice though and stick to something veggie.
