« Part 11: Mambo #5 Part 12 of Shop Remodel series Part 13: Oo La La! »

Another episode in the saga that is the Great Big Build.

Today the glue hit the fan!

The tool cabinet was glued up today and I only cussed once, not bad for a glue up from hell.

Sorry, a really crazy glue up ;)

The rest of the day was spent milling up wood for the door panels and sides.

I have been stockpiling wood for over two years for this build. Every time I recieved a comission I would get extra wood and set it aside. The piece I had for the maple part of the tree door panels I have had for about a year and a half. It has some nice curl to it.

Not a big “show and tell” day, but next week should see some dramatic results granted I get the switch to my jointer fixed that decided to crap out on me today.

Sorry again. It decided to stop working.
Have a great weekend all and have fun woodworking.

Th swearing stage of the project is a good one bearkat. Youre working out the issues. Thats a good thing. Sometimes ill just swear at the walls in the shop. Makes me feel like im doin somethin.

Heck, my shop is 30×40’ and made of steel.
After some screw-ups, I literally throw wood as hard as I can against a far wall!
Norml, I think?
