I've a pot of what is intended to be liquid hide glue cooking. I'm using Don Williams' method' and it is finishing the final cook period. One of the advantages of his method is using table salt instead of urea. With salt there is no shelf life limit, we will see if that is true. Once finished I'll do a test and report the results.
Not much progress on the table's base although the first M/T is fitted and I've started the mortise for the second. The reason for the slow shop time is MsBubba and I are on the roof every morning before it gets too hot, doing the every 4 to 5 year re-coat. The year is more work because we needed to pull the pool solar panels off to coat under them. Anyway, the solar panels are re-installed and we are down to 100 or so square feet of coating to go. What a miserable job, I feel for anyone doing it for a living. After the 3 or 4 hours on the roof my ass is kicked for the rest of the day.
BTW, Summer is here in the desert, no 100F+ days yet but they are coming and soon.
We are still sheltering in place and hope to do so for awhile. I saw a post on Digby from a "red hatter" dated 03/15/20 stating no government had the right to tell him what he can do. The second part was his death notice dated 04/15/20. Cause of death CoVid-19.
Be careful out there, hear.
