General note: I have a lot of scrap wood. Both 2x4s/plywood and hardwood. If anyone needs wood hit me up before you go to Home Depot!

The main thing I'm excited for is proper dust collection. The collector is so unwieldy though! there's no good place for it. Not pictured is it crammed into a corner where it will remain forever.

Some amount of progress. Merging two shops is not for the faint of heart.

Scout-er-day report: Dom's for donuts followed by her first trip into a hobby/model shop (Nankin's in Ypsi). Then sorting through tools in the shop. Let her try out a hatchet and she was very into it. Now watching The Grinch.

Local Commerce Alert:

If you are looking for gifts for the holidays there are two big craft shows happening this weekend!

DIYpsi: diypsi.com

Tiny Expo: aadl.org/tinyexpo

Both are a really fun time, both are stuffed to the gills with excellent crafters! My wife'll be at DIYpsi this year if you want to go say hi.

These boards are from an old family farm. My dad said I’ll be the fourth generation to have these. Don’t know what I’ll use them for but I will use them!

My main pet peeve is "Top Whatevers of the Year!" lists that are published before the year is actually done.

A lot can happen in three weeks, people!

This year is especially rough because it is the end of a decade so we're also getting "Top Whatevers of the Decade".

(If you need me I'm busy hatereading all of the videogame ones.)

If you need something to fill holiday travel time with kids that isn't the Frozen 2 soundtrack: there's discussion of violence, but no swearing in this (that is actually true for all Roll For Topics).

New Roll For Topic! Holiday Special Part 1!

Kyle Latino came on to help us build a dungeon live on air. This is a longer one, but I think is a great look into the sorts of things GMs think through when piecing together something for their players:

Part 2 will be a live playthrough!

We had fun recording this, I hope you have fun listening!

Friend came by and helped get the heavy stuff out. The garage is an absolute mess but at least it’s done. Next few weeks will be sorting stuff and finding homes for it!

Made it home. 11 hours round trip. Taking a break and then unloading.

Have made it to IL. My siblings are en route to help load the van. This thing is gigantic, btw.

Hitting the road soon for Driving Day. I spent most of last night fitfully contemplating my mortality so this should be a good day.

I will say one thing about the Mac Pro: it sure does make the iMac Pro look affordable.

anyway, if you know anyone who needs a baby yoda she can still do direct orders (not in time for Christmas though): instagram.com/p/B5WTdGZlKGv/
