I don’t know how she did it, but Rachel got poison ivy on her brain. The only way she could scratch it was if she thought about sandpaper

TIME:  7:29 PM
PLACE:  Backyard
SUBJECT:  Sander & wooden trunk

I purchased this trunk about 2 months ago at an estate sale for $12 – sweet! – plus it has loads of character.  My plan is to sand it down to the bare wood, stain it, apply a protective poly coating and use it as our coffee table.    Of course, to do that, I needed to buy a new random-orbital sander.  A Makita BO5030K.  I’m liking it.  Who knew that I would find removing paint to be so soothing?
