Don’t you just hate the waste associated with woodworking? Sees like about half of every board ends up this way.

Hey Charles….is that a bicycle powered dust collector in the photo? Don’t throw that sawdust away, you might get a hamster!

Now thats impressive. Looks like mine after a day at the planer. I am glad that I have places to use this….it makes great nesting material for the chickens….good base for garden pathways (especially walnut – which contains a natural herbicide)....My neighbor is constantly begging for some for her horse stalls….which I am more than glad to provide as available….one thing I have never had to do is to throw it in the wastecans….so at least this portion of my wood investment gets some practical use (maybe better then the finished item sometimes..lol).

Oh…and make sure you turn the filter cleaner handles a bit….my first fill on my DC – I did not pay attention there…and ended up having to remove the cannister and clean it out manually…what a paid that was.

Keep up the good work….I’m looking forward to viewing the finished product.
