Carver, that is spectacular.  Could you post a pic of the pocket holes before assembly? 

Thanks

The objective was to put this table together at a minimum of time & materials. All material was scrap, the top was once used as a backing for a pellet gun target and has some holes in it from that. I finished it with some old leftover oil finish.

Great use of used material, and fast build.

I really like that.  I need a shop big enough to do wood working in. I LOVE working with wood, but I have no space, I can't even store any decent tools.  Just no space at all.   Thanks for the extra pics!!

Bought extra kitchen wash cloths and towels. These will go into a bucket marked kitchen cleaning. I'll add sponges and other odds and ends as I think about them. Finding a decent wash sponge today in the stores, was a lost cause.

Wife said I should have ck'ed automotive section.  :facepalm:

She is right! You will find the best ever wash sponges in the auto department.

Yep +1

That's what I use on canning jars.

Shot off a couple Walmart orders recently for paper goods and a few food and cleaning items. All those should bring me close to or over one years supply except on one item that keeps going out of stock. Most of it should show up tomorrow.

Sounds good all.

I went to buy icing buckets yesterday at the grocery bakery and they were out again, as they were a couple of weeks ago.  :(
Before I carted ( ;D) off, the other gal yelled out.....* yea my Dad bought all of them. He's doing this odd prep thing*.    :facepalm: :facepalm: :clap: :clap:

The bucket secret isn't a secret there anymore. Lol
I bought buckets at Walmart. They have plenty

Nothing new lately with true prepping, been working on our kitchen rebuild and other house projects. At least that brings/hones some skills.
Potatoes grow nicely, as well as corn. Beans and peas were a failure this year, wrong spot (not enough sunlight).

The usual garden work. Recounted the tomato plants. 164. I threw the last flat away.  ::)

Went through the med tubs. Lookin good there.
Did a freezer bag inventory. Probably should double what we have, as I would imagine most comes from China.

Oh. Added some EZ towels and a small bottle of rubbing alcohol to the GHB in the car.

Did some weeding in the potato and corn patch. Checked the red currant and goosberry tres I planted earlier this year, they look good and actually have some fruits.

I will be supplementing a secondary location with supplies and survival equipment, adding some First Adi and medical supplies.
