Sandbar is the name of the next house I am trimming for Specialty Builders, LLC. After many long evenings playing around with Google Sketchup to draw detailed drawings of the kitchen, and then using Cut List Plus (thanks to a recommendation from Lee Jesberger’s site: prowoodworkingtips.com!) to set up my plywood cutting, I have begun cutting said plywood to size. Cut List Plus is tremendous! It is saving me from having too much waste, plus the option of printing labels for each part makes organization a snap.
500 board feet of Maple arrived on Monday morning, so I had to build racks to store all that. (I had no idea it was supposed to be there already, as Brian forgot to let me know)
Friday, Brian and I are going to up our fine local Woodcraft store in Grand Rapids to purchase an 8” Steel City Industrial Jointer and a 15” Steel City Industrial Planer! Needless to say, I’m quite excited. :)
I also found out today that I have exactly 2 months to build the cabinets and completely trim the house! The reason being is Brian is planning on this house being in the Grand Rapids Parade of Homes. Hmmm. I guess I will be calling in reinforcements! Hopefully my dad will be able to help me out, plus I have a friend that is moving back into the are who is very handy in the construction trades.
So basically, my head is spinning. This spring is turning into one wild ride.
