    Ok Rick since you might not buy that I cut the body on the table saw... Here some background how it came to that picture. - full confession..

    The cat came in from the garage and looked like in the picture - full with saw dust. Next thing I know, I am faced with an ultimatum to clean up the garage or else... So I put everything on the table to sweep the floor (see how relatively clean it looks). Table saw was just in the proximity of the mess.

    No need for a subscription. I think pop stars these days will come and go before your subscription runs its course.

    Your best bet to stay in the loop is to watch superhero movies. Not really my thing, either, but I'm just out of the infant and toddler years. The superhero movies are infinitely better than any of the Smurf movies or straight to DVD stuff that I suffered through not so long ago.

    I'll look forward to seeing the electric mandolin come together. Hope it will come with a lasso of truth :lol:

    Hi Helmut,
    What happened to your thread while you were at work today? Why just about the same thing that happens to it every day! Once the monkeys find a hang out they like and the beer is good they tend to stick around. Add Linda Carter to the mix and it's pretty much a lock.

    Concerning the dusted cat and your wife's path of logic, I would challenge her to prove that it was "your" sawdust on the cat. Maybe the cat fearlessly attacked a rogue termite nest in your garage..... no, that would probably freak her out. Maybe just tell her you were using the cat to dust the floor.....

    One of my cats is very fond of helping me when I'm in the garage. There's lots of things to sniff and hide under and generally rub up against - and yes, sawdust and cobwebs. Everything we own is covered in cat hair anyway, so a little dust on top of that isn't a big deal.

    It does look quite clean. (The shop, not the cat). I bet a cat would make a great bench brush if you could find a place to put a handle. And avoid the teeth and claws. I almost wish you hadn't shattered my high opinion of you, but at least now I can stop dodging guitar-body size kickbacks from my table saw trying to copy your woodworking feat.

    Our little shop mascots can be an interesting bunch. I remember James Muzikp saying Butters, their beautiful, but none-too-bright Lab amusing herself by standing so as to get the full discharge of chips from the planer, right in her face so she can grab the stream with her mouth. Like dogs do with yard sprinklers but dumber.

    EDIT: This discussion reminds me of Brainy's shop cat, Percy Pants The Cat Boy. Hope he's fairing well.

    I think I will position the saw dust as cat glitter!

    It is not exactly the same as man glitter which is more common at construction sites. This cat glitter is from true tone wood.

    I think Little Richard is fond of man-glitter.

    I am only familiar with man glitter that comes from true tone woods. Construction site glitter is just saw dust in my book. :lol:

    You just tie their feet together. Easy peezy. You can use the tail to dust the tight spots.

    Not that I've ever tried it..............

    Back around 1970 or so I remember my mom trying to give my cat Bootsie a flea dip in the kitchen sink. She had Bootsie's front and rear paws taped together and was proceeding to lower him upside down, spine first into the dip. He was howling only the way a cat can when it thinks it's going to die a horrible death. My friend Jackie and I were in convulsive hysterics on the linoleum floor behind my mom at the sound of this. Then just before he hit the dip he got his front paws free and sunk his claws right into one of my mother's armpits. She let out a yell louder then the cat, dropped poor Bootsie and he hit the dip back first, then sprung out into the living room pogoing on his still taped together back paws and free fronts. I don't think I ever laughed that hard in my life. Then my mom turned around with death in her eyes and we bolted for the back door. Ah yes, fun with cats......
