« Part 48: Busy Busy Busy... Part 49 of Tool thoughts series Part 50: First show, plus new job among other thoughts. »

Hi gang, I know some of you have thought I fell over the edge of the world… Not at all. I simply haven’t had much blog time, or if I did have time, I didn’t have a lot of progress to report.

That is what I’ve been ‘up to’, and who really needed to see yet another set of end grain boards in progress here on LJ’s?

the LOML booked me into a show this coming weekend, and I’ve been out in the shop

going through all of the necessary steps to get those boards ready for the show.

My new planer is working out great! I couldn’t be happier with the purchase! My Shopsmith DC is working well too, but I’m fast coming to the conclusion that a Dust Deputy is in my future after this week. I’ll need to get another 2 1/2” hose and so forth, but hopefully after this weekend I’ll have some shop money to play with. The Dust Deputy and a Ridgid spindle/belt sander are on my very short list of tools right now.

more later… just took a short break for some water and clean air…

Joe, I’ve almost ‘run out of time’... I have about four or so small boards worth of strips I can glue up, but today is my ‘last’ day that I have time before my show this weekend.

I know one thing, except for a few orders from friends, I’m done with cutting boards for awhile. I’ve got several shop projects I want to make, and the shop itself needs a massive clean out after the past month of activity.
