    Hanging security cameras. My wife and I now have a new show to watch as all of the neighbors come and go.
    Wanted to get this project done before the hungry hordes go out on search of food and TP for their bungholes.

    It's layered cocobolo wood (both ends) with leather (dark brown layers), vulcanized fiber liner material (red stripes) and zebra wood in the center.

    Never had the chance to work with any of the fancy woods. That looks awesome. Maybe one day I will get some and give it a try. What finish did you use on it?

    I work from home. I leave my house once or twice a week to go out to dinner or go shooting. I have no travel plans.

    I don’t go to sports, conferences, concerts, bars, meetings...


    To look at my life, the only way to spot a difference would be that I’m not going out to eat.

    Believe it or not.... I hand rubbed it with olive oil. My can of Danish oil had dried up in the shop. It'll do for now until I get something more permanent on it. Just finished it last night.

    Cocobolo is so naturally oily it doesn't need much really. This is my first experience with zebra wood though.

    Huh? Quarantine? I'm so far behind at work, with deadlines coming up...I've been remoted in to work to a high-powered machine (where the EM simulator is installed) all weekend (deadline rapidly approaching - @fishgutzy will recognize the signs :D ). I occasionally come up for air. It's hard for me to tell the difference between quarantine and my irregularly scheduled work binge.

    Did I read somewhere that some of the exotic woods are toxic? Do you have to use any special precautions when working with them?

    Cocobolo is one of them. It CAN make some people react like poison ivy. It's never bothered me in that way. I wear a respirator when working with any wood though. Some folks have to wear gloves and such when sanding it and handling it before finish. Doesn't bother me. And I'm really allergic to poison ivy....

    This stick of cocobolo has been kicking around my shop for a decade or so. I've cut a piece off here and a piece off there as I needed it. It's dryer now for sure than when I first got it, but when I was drilling the holes for the tang oil was flowing up out of them and burning off from the friction of the drill bit.

    Wow that is oily. Never seen that before. If I get some I might need to use a little caution as I used to be highly allergic to poison ivy. Seems like it is not such a problem as it used to be. Who knows, maybe I grew out of it.

    Im playing records.

    Though I thought it might be a good time to 'invest' in a video game for up to 40 bucks.
    Ive done this before when off work for a while. For under 40 dollars I can get 15+ hours of entertainment, if not more (ie: Far Cry 4 I have 150 hours over the course of years of playing). Not a bad 'investment' for my time and to keep me busy

    Ha! Our hours of service just got exempted. Work is already looking insane this week. On 2 hours detention already today and counting. Tomorrow will be worse. Bakery is running at 100% and behind schedule.

    If they send me home, which I doubt happens, I'll load 9mm til I'm out of brass. Probably cast something. Finish the demo of the master bath. And probably buy more junk than usual online. In addition to the normal goings on.

    But then there's this:

    I have over 900 games in my steam catalog... I have a physical game back log dating back to NES days. I have shelves of books I meant to read. I have enough ammo to play with for a while and still have some to hold in reserve to "use". If I wanted to shoot some 22 in the yard for entertainment every day, I wouldn't need to rush to restock after this all blows over. And I'll probably put in a pickup order at academy, just because MOAR. And I'm not above reminding their manager that I'm the guy who figured out they forgot to charge me for $400 worth of ammo a while back, so I came back and showed them I already got it instead of taking the next $400 worth they tried to give me. I saw him the other day and he confirmed that they would have never been able to figure out what happened but they'd have had some tough questions to answer from above.

    But yeah, I was just thinking about how I have crates of dvds and cds packed in my garage, and at least 50lbs of VHS tapes and a player tucked away... so even if netflix, hulu, AND amazon go down.. I'll have plenty of entertainment.

    Of course, if it gets bad, I may have to take on family as house guests... so it might be good to have options.
