When I do a hammer form, I always make a top piece and sandwich the metal. There is no reason you can't make the top piece out of hardwood and sandwich it all with a couple of small bolts or screws welding the holes up when you are done.

I'm back with faster internet and a new email address

I was initially going to be down for 6 days but I called Century Link yesterday and complained. It was done today...

New pics of the F100 in the project thread.

What did I do, well let me see........next to nothing. I came home very late tonight, ate and jumped out there for my five minutes minimum. I need a place to work being my bench is full of crap I thought I would clean that up. I have a couple of tables outside and they have been my crutch, they are clean though.

This my friends is after spending about 10 minutes cleaning.

I will stay out there longer tomorrow and get it done. But I need to get this done being it's raining most every night so my tables outside are not going to work so I am forced to clean.

As mentioned, as soon as my daughter goes back to schoiol next week this garage needs to be cleaned. Took me a while to find my Battery Tender. Why? Because it was where it should have been next to my other charger. I can never find anything when when tools are put in their proper spot...

Lots of burning boxes for one...

It has been nice, I am NOT tired of it that's for sure. I even go out for my evening walk in the rain. When someone told me I was nuts I asked them "You take showers don't you!" Really, I just dress warm and proper and walk, I love it.

sorry to say nothings ben worked on for 2-3 years not even 5min..
As a matter of fact its gone backwards I 'm going to start from the frame and weld and paint everything one last time. I started taking it back apart but only enough so I could still drive it in the parking lot.I drove it 2 weeks ago (onto the roll back to the new shop) what a blast....when I started it up and drove it up on the truck the guy said that's awesome,the fenders were flapping and it just looked sorry but it sounded good and it smoked the heck out of the tires, gave me a thrill too.

What no pics of your breakfast? then it didn't happen lol, but Thank God you'llbe back on it. I miss your posts Puggs. Thank God John L. hasn't finished the 54 it keeps me going. Whats happened around here, with no posts or new threads?
thanks to Brian,we found out about LT1's car. damn nice too. that was a good thread too. and if I remember correctly, wasn't it Brian that started this thread? Another valued member....Get your butt to work Brian, that don't get you a free pass. and that 5 min a day thing .....all yours,give, credit where credit is due. Another classic thread

Want to see some posts of my turning a vacant building into a shop? starting with cutting out the holes for overhead doors out of block walls? not very interesting and kind of boring compared to building a hotrod but I have big plans for it.

I'll probably have a few questions for you. Like where's a good place to buy good 10'wide (at least) commercial overhead doors "frugally" , what kind of paint for the floors, and LED lighting. I even have to connect the meter box, it fell off the wall and pulled the wires and pipe that goes up through the eves with it ,its siting on the ground.
If nobody starts posting I swear I'll be making your morning coffee even more boring.
