Because Garrett can’t handle the STICKY

Ruth here:

“So because I’m an awesome person, I took over the rest of the sticky business. This is usually what happens. On one of our last restorations, Ronin, we decided to copper-plate the bottom which involved a whole lot of tar. Guess who had the nickname Tar Queen (hint it’s not Garrett). Since we got a few pieces done and glued up Garrett was able to start planing and shaping while I continued on expoying the rest.

Garrett gave me a few pointers on how to prepare my set up for epoxying quickly; like presetting all my clamps, getting the wax paper ready, and setting up the pieces in the order they will be layered. But, I found out even if you prep everything that doesn’t mean everything will go smoothly. Your blood, sweat, and angry words are really what glues that wood together. I have just one two-part piece left to join together and then we’re through with epoxy for the moment!

That’s not a smile that’s a cringe. But I still hate sticky less than Garrett so it’s not that bad. The things you do for the ones you love.”
