« Part 12: METAMORPHOSIS: Part 13 of Dungeon to Lair: That's the plan at least... series Part 14: A White Knuckle Tool Gloat & never ending Shopping Spree!!! »

This is just a quick update.

Rex, I promise not to mention my new Rikon 10-325 14” BS with a 1-1/2HP motor and 13” of resaw capacity!!! Opps, I guess that is mentioning it. ;) Ok, at least no pictures.

I purchased some stuff for the shop “Metamorphosis”. I will be picking it all up on Monday or Tuesday. There are fixtures, like drill/driver cubbies to keep things “in their place”, cabinets needed for organization, drawers to eliminate clutter and jigs galore urgently needed.

Here are a few pictures of my recent acquisition!:

That is a pile of unfinished, Red Oak flooring that will become, French Cleats, Cabinets Faces, Drawer Fronts and Shop Jigs!!! All in all that stack set me back a whooping $10.00!!! Looks like I gotz me some building to do.

Who needs a Cold One or rattle cans to huff, when the anticipation of having a well equipt and furnished shop is intoxicating enough!!!

I gotta grab some lunch, then head to the basement and work in/on the shop. That’s the plan at least!!!

I would have to say…that’s a killer deal…..and I think the crime scene tape confirms it!

That’s some pretty handy stuff to have around the shop – great to see you so motivated…..and here I thought you were napping at the big box store…...

Yes, Jeff, that was a “steal”. The folks at the “ReStore” treat me very well, as I used to volunteer there on Saturdays. I saw the pile yesterday and grabbed a couple of pieces for my current shop project, edge banding for a counter/bench. While working in the shop last night, I realized that the entire shop could benefit from a single cohesive look and so I headed there today, so no one could snatch it up!!! Yeah, I’m psyched and motivated, to say the least.

Thanks for stopping in.

You can build a 4×4 floor for the Rikon 10-325 14” BS with a 1-1/2HP motor and 13” of resaw capacity to sit on…..

Actually, Marty I can’t. As the saw sits now, there is a 1/4” clearance to the ceiling & thats without putting on a plastic cap over the R&P for the height adjustment. I can’t put the plastic cover on, there ain’t enough room! The oak dance floor for the saw is out!!!

Eddie,
I never do know their names…...
I just look in their purse for ID!!!

Anyone bring coffee???

Dave,
She is paitiently waiting for me to put ‘er to use. I’m also waiting on my “precision straightedges” to arrive, so I can accurately access how flat the table is NOT!!!
