Mrs. Finchy and I go way way back.

She's not afraid of me! I sit mere feet away, and her and her mate are feeding without a care. Isn't she gorgeous?

Help transplanting burr oak saplings

Last autumn I stored several acorns in a 5-inch pot that was filled with potting soil and covered. I took the cover off 2 days ago to discover 7 saplings between 3 and 7 inches long. They are too big for the pot I was storing them in. Are they safe to transplant at this stage? What size pot should I transplant them in? How do I...

I’d tip out the pot and gently separate the saplings. Hopefully they’re not too entangled. Go ahead and replant in the ground with the same potting soil, taking care to make the holes deep enough for the tap roots. They’re long!

We have the Brother HL-L3230CDW and are happy with it. Works fine with inexpensive toner cartridges from Amazon.

Router table but yeah a table saw would do it too.

Our toddler messing with this glass scale was the inspiration! I bet an off the shelf letter holder would work.

There’s a groove on the insides of the walls that the plywood fits into.

Plain wood glue for the corners but the bottom is not glued in order to let the sides move with humidity changes.

Yep FB is the way to go for local sales. I’m in a large metro area and exclusively use it.

He still does Red Meat?? That was my favorite part of the reading the (paper issues of) Onion way back in the day.

Thanks! We’re joking that it’ll wind up as a dorm room coffee table some day.

I haven’t done a shop post. I’m lucky to have a large, clean space for my hobby and posting about it would feel like bragging to me.

Gotta spend about 10% of your “shop time” on organization and cleaning!

It’s not cheating but probably not that fun or challenging. We always pick a topical word or one suggested by our toddler.

Yep just some grooves from a V-shaped scraper.

Fixed for me!

I made something similar as a personal serving plate / cutting board for our toddler. We often cut up his food, and it saves a dish to combine the two tasks.
