My birthday presents finally arrived today. Picked out the parallel clamp set from JET, includes 2-24” and 2-40” clamps with the 90 deg. support blocks. One thing I was surprised with was the weight of them, especially the 40”-ers. Also surprised by the added support foot that is adjustable outside of the two clamp faces.
Now that the 11 hour days are hopefully done at work, I can get back and finish up the crib that goes with the changing table. I saw that “lclashley” was wanting some more detail on the sides, so I included a couple of pictures here. The sides are framed with 3/4” cherry, with 3/8” x 1 1/4” slats in the opening. There is a piece of Baltic Birch ply. screwed in place from the inside to close in the hole and contrast the slats. I wanted the panel removable so that when I finished the piece I wouldn’t have to worry about runs and drips with all the inside corners. There’s also a picture of the railing where it wraps around to the back, showing the stair-stepped effect.
I'll also get pics up of the mobile unit I made for my planer. Had to do something so that I could move it around to use it without needing help. Otherwise, it is a "beast".
Until next time...happy sawdust makin' y'all.
