We rode bikes all over today. Fort Zachary Taylor park Beach. Iguanas and egrets and women in thongs. I'm 70 lbs lighter than this trip last year. Good thing. I'm tuckered. Miller time

Boat trip fell through. Someone booked him over night. Paying customers. S'ok. We still have the bikes and it gives us time for a nap before riding down to the water.

Tried to find a pull knob down there, but nope. Had to make one.

After doing all that yourself, it's time to let your helpmate polish the knob. You don't want it to become weathered.

Can't say I disagree with that notion.

Now?

So.... It's getting there. I've got 3 coats of poly on the flamed maple... Letting that cure until Sunday, then sand it with 600 grit and then a final coat. Then glue that to the box. I'll glue the 8 piece to the little plaque thingy at the same time. Once they're good, I'll glue that to the rest and paint the top of the 8. Thing is....
While I was painting the trim white, I masked the red with blue painters tape, and liked the way the blue looked with the white and red. So, do I make the 8 red or blue?

I did these pics by laying it out, and coloring the 8 in post, so the blue and red on the 8 are too bright, but... Which one?

The red will be the same paint as the box


Or



The blue is not quite as electric.

Yes, blue.
I have a couple 6"x 12" sheets of 3M dark blue that looks just blue but really lights up when hit with a light at night. I know it sound tacky but it's not, if you'd like to see what it looks like.

Also gold, brown, green, and orange I think.

I want this to look old and hand crafted. There's a big brass 8 over the door for delivery people to spot. I don't think I want any reflective stuff, but thanks!

We're both leaning towards the red. I might have to tape it, paint it and look at it in blue before I sand the lacquer off the surface of the 8 and do the real paint.
