    I know every one of you have experienced a crappy day in the shop some time or another. Today nothing seemed to go right. My dad and I have a set of reproduction antlers that needed to be repaired. Nice, big non typical. One of the antlers was busted off at the pedicle, which wouldn't have happened if the person we bought it from would have taken the time to pack it securely before shipping it. We drilled multiple holes and tried fixing it with decking screws and epoxy, but the dumb antler kept cracking. Finally we have it just about fixed, but I'm not touching it for 24 hrs, just letting it cure. I was also shaving a tanned bobcat skin and managed to cut the one part that's most important, the face. I made a tear going up the side of the nose. I also had trouble with finding the right tools for the antler repair and now my shop is a mess...But Im so frustrated right now that don't feel like cleaning it :p

    I know that all too well. First time we have ever had to wait for a tenant. Usually it rents out immediately.
     
  16. You are right!! I went to the garrage and there it was! :eek: :eek: I instantly felt the power of the lizard.......then my Jack Russell saw the lizard, she seemed immune to the lizards power. I now must find another. :p
