I've got the 2 4' pieces of 2x4 and one of the 18"ers.

How did it go? Any pictures?

I really wanted to get over there, but our activities went late and I just couldn't make it happen.
Make it happen.

Oh, there will be pix, all right. I even got good shots of the kittens, finally. We have a frame, an annealed spoon bowl, and many strips of veneer which I milled on the table saw.

Anybody got a spot welder??

So much fun, even if I still can't feel my damned toes. Glad the frame is completed, and the spoon is taking shape. What's the schedule looking like for next weekend?

Good pics- I have to laugh, though, because I saw the cat names and said to myself "Geekiest cat names EVER".

Then- no lie- I remembered that MY cat is named...

Wedge.

Hello kettle? Yeah, this is the pot. You're black. See ya!

I'll put my air cannon against the spoon-a-pult any day! It looks like a good start. Perhaps I need to start joining in on festivities. But I can work in a garage workshop without heat at my house...

Air cannons are cool too; it just happened to be a catapult based on the Spoonbridge and Cherry that we settled on as a first-ever group build.

Also, hi! Have you been to any of the meetups at Common Roots? (We're generally not great with names, and I'm no exception; if we've already met, I apologize.)

Next crack at the Spoonapult project will be this Saturday, starting at 10:00 AM at Metis' place; you can PM him for directions.
