Trailer secured.. WOOT!

Now, to start the marathon woodworking sessions required to have us fully kitted to _my_ satisfaction by SRWC.

Goals:

1) Finish the Oak canopy bed I was _this close_ to having done for Pennsic the night before we left last year, (till I miscut the ONE LONG PIECE I had, and had  to drop the project). (Note to self and others.. do not use power tools when you have been up for two days, basically, and have looming deadlines. And are being assaulted by Sphynx moths the size of blackhawk helicopters.)

2) Make at least four, preferably six, oak X chairs of the integral slat-seat variety. (Gotta make that mortising machine pay for itself)

3) Make at least 3 sets of trestle legs like my prototypes, (one with quatrefoils, Your Excellency!) and tables to go with em if necessary.

4) At least four chests, two for "cooler" purposes and/or seating, and two for storage/moving purposes.

5) Two benches to go with at least one of the trestle tables

BECAUSE I'M FREAKIN TIRED OF EATING OFF MY LAP IN A BAG CHAIR!

(my journal, right? I can rant, right? Rantrantrantrant)

Note the second: Lumber procurement trip set back by one day by yet ANOTHER nail in a tire episode, this time _my_ right rear tire! GUH!

I plan to keep track of my progress here. Go me!
