Music Stand 1.0
Idea #1. Adjustable music stand (tray moves from 32" to 41" from floor). Curly maple or walnut with ash. Not sure yet. Quick mock up with scrap wood. All the steps will be sculpted together, like a Maloof rocking chair. I like to make design notes right on the mock up. Another idea is a Wendell Castle design, which I have always liked.

Underhill 1988 > Schwarz 2011
Back in the '90s, a phrase commonly heard around the remote sensing lab was, "Windows 98 = Mac '84", often following the crash of a PC halfway through some simple task. As with computers, woodworking workbenches were figured out long before Chris Schwarz starting blogging about them (the oldest workbench known is from 50 A.D.). But unlike the PC, Schwarz has managed to improve greatly on the early designs. Today, there are 100 videos on YouTube showing how to build a Split-to
A while back, I watched Roy Underhill make a "collapsing ladder" designed by Thomas Jefferson. Roy emphasized the need for quality wood for both rail and rung. Straight grain is especially important, as Jefferson advised, "My grain runneth straight". I thought that phrase would make a good tshirt for Underhill's woodworking school, The Woodwright's School. It also might make a good slogan for a woodworking club in dryland wheat country.
Alder Ridge Landslide
Twenty gullies cut the Alder Ridge Landslide. The slide is developed in the Selah interbed and involves Miocene basalt bedrock, but several Pleistocene surficial units ride on top and partially cover it. Sheeted dikes cut stratified, possibly flood-reworked basaltic colluvium atop landslide deposits. Exposure is a 2.5m high vertical bank in one of the gullies.

Jackson Hole Turkey Trot 2017
Thanksgiving in Wyoming: 2017 Jackson Hole Turkey Trot 5K. Ainsley, Courtney & Hilary = 25:53 Marshall = 43:29 Tommy Moe = 27:25 Marshall finished first in class - just like those Harvard days.
The mountains are but rock and ice and storm and abyss, but they attract the best people. Dave and Skye and 5 days in The Enchantments. Spence and Skye, Pyramid Peak summit (14,026'), Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness, CO. Pidduck and Paul on Sacajawea, Wallowa Mountains. Mike and Dave, Black Peak area, North Cascades. Another 100% cotton day for Spence on Whistler Peak summit, North Cascades. 12 donuts for 10 climbers. Good odds on Mt. Higgins, North Cascades. Skagit Alpine C
Don't let this happen to you. Secure your attractants. A Bear Management Specialist for Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks asked me to design a bumper sticker that would help get the message out about bear attractants. He wanted something that didn't look too dorky. I drew the images above for him this morning. I really tried to work in a severed human arm, but just couldn't make it work. If things go as planned, East Front residents should expect to see these plastered on every
