Good morning folks, the coffee for some reason is especially good this morning. No specific reason why, it just taste better this morning. My garage shop is coming along. I look forward to getting some pictures to share with you all. I’ve completed a few jigs. IE: 2 featherboards, sliding crosscut sleds (2) Push Sticks (3) and 2 Push Blocks. I used some of the non slip stuff on the push blocks and there is no way any wood will slip from them. I finished my lumber rack. I took 2 ideas from here and completed it and the installation of it on Wednesday this week, I weigh somewhere near 230 lbs and I gave it the SteveKorz test or the Michael Hacker test. I did pull ups on the top arms. I climbed and stood on the middle and bottom arms. It’s pretty solid. I got the Oscalatting sander in the other day and yesterday I put the WoodHaven Horizontal Table Kit, 578, 575 & 578HD. Took about 4 hours. Today I’ll start a project to organize tools and accessories under my main bench. Some spots will have drawers while other will be like cubby holes. The bench is like 36” deep so I will not be utilizing all of that space of course so I am trying to figure a way to use the back side. I may use it for wood that is 1×4x8 or less. Anyway that is about it for this morning. A few more cups of joe and I’ll be ready to go. I hope you all have a great weekend!

Morning Sac,

Coffee was goof here this morning also, it was probably the company! Sounds like your shop is coming along. I just flipped through and old (2003ish) American Woodworker where they’d build a shallow cabinet to rest at the back of a deep workbench, maybe that’d work for you?

Ahhh, the smell of coffee and sawdust in the morning….

Hey Sac,
I can’t find the article…I’ve borrowed a bunch of old magazines from a friend of mine and that may have been in the pile I’ve returned. If I can find a reference I will post it.

Thanks Mark. Don’t worry about it. I started the project Saturday. I may have found a solution. I need to take some pictures I suppose to let you all see the idea I came up with. Basically I used 3/4” plywood for the sides and shelves. Then routed 1/2” deep 3/4” grooves in the side panels for the shelves and drawer guides. The sides are 24” deep. The guides are 30 inch deep. I have used bearings mounted to the botton of each drawer unit that the drawers will slide across. I have placed drawer stops so they would not just fall out if I pulled them to far. This is my first attempt at making something even remotly similiar to this. Today I will build the drawers. The side of the drawers will be 3/4” plywood also to accept the guides. The back and bottom will be what we use to call gopher board. I’m not sure what it is really called but when I got the 4×8 sheets the lady called them Ecoboard. It is pretty strong stuff. It reminds me of what you would find in the bottom and sometimes in the back of drawers. Anyway I will get some pics.

Another reason I want to post some pictures is that a fellow gave me some type of a square. Well I am not sure it is called a square. I have no idea what it is called so I am certian that you all will know what it is.

Pictures to come soon.

I’ve got the Woodhaven Router setup. It does a great job.

I screrwed a plastic caliper onto mine to show the distance that I raise the bit. I bought it for around $5.00 at Harbor freright on sale. It only measures in 100 of an inch so you have to guess for the .125 measurement. or I need to raise it .001 of an inch.

Hello EdC, Thanks for asking. Actually it is doing very well. The outside of the finger still has some swelling. It’s hard to believe but it does. That is all that is left from the bite. I’ve killled 3 other recluses in the past couple of week. 1 in the house and 2 others in the garage.

Karson that’s a pretty sweet tool isn’t it. I look forward to using mine.
