Now that Bunny's brother has received his gift, I can talk about it.
This past Monday on a whim, Bunny made this tiny cutting board:
The thing was, she made this with her table saw! You know, this
huge monsterous thing with a 12″ or 14″ circular blade o'death
spinning at a bazillion revolutions per second? Yeah, she made this
teeny little cutting board with that.
But she made it to test out the capabilities of a new piece of equipment
she bought—the Micro Jig GR-100
GRR-Ripper. It's a pretty amazing device used to push wood around and
through the many spinning blades o'death that lurk in the wood shop (in our
case, the garage). We've seen it used enough times (yes, we watch Steve
Ramsey every week) that Bunny felt it might be worth getting.
And yes, it was worth getting. The demonstration videos that come with
it are astounding (most impressive to me was cutting dados in a
dowel). In fact, she was so impressed that she got a GRRR-Ripperfor her
brother, and sent along the cutting board as an example of the type of work
possible when using it.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
