One leg is done, three more to go....Nine mortices left and the shop is already hot and the sweat is poring. Monsoon is here, the RH is in the 60s so instead of sweat drying and cooling it just runs over your glasses. Head bands help a little as does the tail of your shirt and lots of glasses wipes. That's the bad news about Monsoon, the good is it is about half our rainfall for the year, and it cools afternoon temps down into the 90s.
It will be slow going for the rest of the day, chop a little, clean glasses, chop a little more, take a long cool the core break, go chop some more.
See you on down the road.
