I just thought I’d jump in and start posting a few pictures of my current project. I’m not a seasoned woodworker by ANY means, though I’ve always secretly held a desire to learn woodworking.
I live with my wife and son sharing a house with her parents. They were originally supposed to move out and let us take over the house, but when their project to buy a new house became a project to buy some empty land to “someday maybe” build a house on, it became apparent that the problems we are having with “too much stuff in one house” was not going away anytime soon.
A few months ago, the in-laws purchased a storage building for me so that I can store all of the stuff my wife and I would like to someday put in our own house… but don’t really NEED to have in the house today. So, I promised to build some shelving in the building that I now call “the warehouse”.
I’ve already completed the first set of shelves, and am working on the second set. Both sets of shelves are designed the same, but the first set I used only a router that my wife bought me for father’s day to make all the cuts. This time I’m using a table saw with a new dado head set that I bought last week.
Here’s some photos
Now, he’s some shots of me being totally insane, trying to use the Dado head in my table saw to cut rabbets in some 12’ boards. How do you let a 12’ board slide along a table saw? This is how I did it. I know, not exactly a paragon of safety, but it worked…
I know I’m insane, and it’s not safe… I hope to never use this technique again after getting these 12’ boards cut.
That’s it for now. Enjoy.
