Did you hear about the guy who went streaking through a church? The Priest caught him by the organ.



She's a looker alright. I've dabbled in keys but I've never owned a keyboard/piano/organ so progress has been slow. I do play some guitar a little bit though.

...and thanks for the pat on the back.

corny joke alert....
Little Billy started playing organ when he was 5
Little Billy started playing organ when he was 5. He practiced and practiced every day. He had heard of this orchestra from his town that was really hard to get accepted into. This made him want to practice and practice even more. He even got private lessons with a skilled organist. Finally, the day came. He went to the audition room and started to play, but no sound would come out. The organ was broken. The judge immediately arranged for another organ. As Billy began to play, the organ also creaked and then ceased to make a sound. The judge arranged for yet another organ for Billy, but that one broke down as well. The judge suddenly collapsed to the ground.

At the hospital, the doctors pronounced the judge dead and performed an autopsy.

"The cause of death appears to be multiple organ failure."


Priest and Alter Boys Alert Joke....never known USA humour, so just saying funny to me but......

The village priest went out to collect his freshly laid eggs on Sunday morning and realised his cockerel was missing.
At morning service he decided to ask his parishioners if they had seen it.
"Has anyone got a cock?" the priest asked.

All the men stood up!
"No, no," said the priest, "I meant has anyone seen a cock this morning?"
All the women stood up!
"No, no," said the priest again, "I meant, has anyone seen a cock that doesnt belong to them?"
Half of the women stood up!

"No, no, no!" exclaimed the priest. "What I meant was, has anyone seen my cock this
morning?"
The altar boys and organist all stood up and the priest fainted!

I'm carrying this stuff over from the Disc Golf thread so it's not completely derailed and while there's no Furniture Restoration thread anywhere here, not that I'd expect there be one, I figure this is as good of a spot as any. A bit of a hobby of mine, and I set up that huge wall of speakers in my garage to listen to stuff while I work on things, so this is what I'm doing while I'm listening. Sometimes. Lots of Yes and Goose in the background for this one, iirc.

Turned out decent though.

...and it aint a disc golf rack but here's my next completed piece. A garbage/recycling bin redone to match another piece of existing furniture for a friend.

List of modifications:
  • Disassemble (the hinges were busted and the bottom plank was loose and just pinned with pin nails, also the handle/knob was old and loose with no anchors to keep it from spinning)
  • Sand with 100/150/220
  • Paint interior with flat black spray paint
  • Tape off painted areas
  • Fill holes/gaps in face board mounted to the wood drawer frame with wood putty
  • Run a bead of caulk around inside perimeter of face board/wood frame
  • Paint exterior with flat white ceiling paint (for texture)
  • Resand exterior with 150/220
  • Remount bottom hinge plank using liberal amount of wood glue and existing pin nails
  • Fill old hinge mount holes with wood putty
  • Paint exterior with gloss white (6 coats)
  • Wood glue bottom support planks in place (they were also only being held together with just pin nails)
  • Mount foot nubs to bottom support planks to get the frame up off of the floor
  • Mask off accent areas where the wooden rivets/nubs are to achieve a rectangular bracket look
  • Paint masked off areas gloss black
  • Reassemble using new black handle/knob and new heavier black hinges

















Up next: A Work Bench with mounted vice, peg board, and places to store things.

The Wall:



I added a sound bar to it lately. I got it free from my friend who moved so what the heck why not. It added some full centeredness to the overall sound. Very immersive, even though it cuts a bit of the L/R channel separation a bit. I also noticed I had the PA set to only the two channels, so I switched it over to Passive which includes the Sub. What a difference!
