Not much woodworki ng or CNC going on in the summer because I have to take advantage of the weather to do things outside, like welding.  My wife frowns on me bringing welding equipment into the house, especiall y in carpeted rooms.  I recently purchased a scroll attachmen t for my metal bender and made my first project which looks remarkabl y similar to something that Art's flourish module would generate.  Definitel y not random but a nice flourish that will enhance the look above our pantry sliding doors.  Photos show the generatio n and resulting flourish hanging on a shepherd hood while the paint is drying.  Please forgive this post if off topic, just thought it might be fun to see what people do when they take a break from "Gearotic".

Mark;

 Flourish looks awesome,  I'm sure it will enhance the look of your pantry doors. Anyhow glad to know I'm not the only one that keeps his wife frowning. .
Thanks for sharing, nicely done.

Mark, what kind of metal bender do you have?  Looks like I may have some new shop space to fill soon.

It's an el-cheapo Harbor Freight bender.  The fancy scrolls are done with their scroll attachmen t usually not available in-store, you have to order on-line.  Do you have Harbor Freight stores way up there where the cold air comes from?

You have shop space to fill?  I wish I could buy "shop space" but that would involve real estate which ain't gonna happen.

Nearest Horror Freight is a couple hundred miles south.  I've written them several times about how many people would frequent one here.  They always write back and suggest ones 500+ miles away in Detroit or thereabou ts.  I save the coupons and use them on trips or the occasiona l online order.

We've slowly downsized our livestock to a horse (looking for a good home for Josie) and just cleaned about 40 years worth of junk out of one end of a 24x48' barn after putting up a wall (wrong order).  A new floor, some insulatio n, a stack of drywall.. .  Need to fill it with something, the Maslow looks lonely.
