An early Christmas present

Years ago, a fellow expat told me about a long clamp he bought at Tienda Inglesa, very handy for making clean plywood cuts with a circular saw. I went to Tienda Inglesa, and — reminiscent of trying to find a ”special” item that you didn’t buy the first time you saw it at Costco — there were none. And there have been none. Until yesterday!

So it’s an early Christmas present. Time to try again to make a cabinet!

In other news, a bloom:

I think we’ve had these plants at least three years. This is a first.

      Especially saves time trying to find a piece of dimensional lumber in Uruguay that’s actually straight!
