Wasn’t Christmas just yesterday?? And who decided March was almost over already?

Things are really picking up and I keep adding plans to the calendar.

This Thursday I will have a complete “how to” writeup with pictures, a cutting diagram, a shopping list, layout diagrams, and an assembly video on my website for a STRONG and durable 6’ picnic table. It’s built a little different…absolutely no screws visible on top. Just in time for spring! I’ll post the pics to the projects section here when it is all done. This is the table we are building though…

I purchased the materials for my router lift build. I’m feeling a little sporty though…why not build two! But that means I need two new routers…sounds good to me!! Here’s a little teaser…

I’m also in the process of a complete remodel in one of the apartment units at work. The entire process is going to be covered on my website. New floor, large sheet rock patching, complete repaint, removal of old and installation of new kitchen cabinets, formica countertop installation, new sink and plumbing, hooking up a dishwasher, previous water damaged ceiling repair. I will be doing all the work by myself except the carpet. Luckily we outsource the carpet.

Also doing another blanket chest somewhere in there. This time with tongue and groove joinery. Hopefully that will be recorded too.

Like always I will continue to post content and participate here on lumberjocks. This community is amazing. But if you would like to keep up with more than just my woodworking you can check out the website and subscribe to email notifications at the bottom. Thanks again LumberJocks!

Good to see you’re not sitting around playing video games. I checked out your website, looks like you’re marching in the right direction.

Man – you stay busy don’t you. How did you creat the router lift drawing? is that Sketch UP or something else? Also, you may want to add your apartment makeover on LJ’s sister site – Home Refurb. And yes – this is a great site.
And here are two examples of what folks think about this site:

Hey Harold. Yeah, busy is good. Grandpa used to tell me “nothing works unless you do”

The router lift is not my design but yes, SketchUp. It is a purchased plan from John Heisz at www.ibuildit.ca It’s well worth the price. An excellent design and I believe a few of them are floating around the projects section here at LJ. I just took the file and duplicated it to have two. I’m almost done with that build by the way!

Home Refurb. I totally forgot about that site! Thanks for the reminder!

Ha! Timing is everything. No problem. Technically my name is Jonathon anyway, I just go by Jay.
