This weekend I installed the bead boards on back of cabinet. I used 4” wide wainscoating boards 1/4” thick that I had left from a couple of other projects. This is maybe a better shot. Then I made and attached the base of the cabinet. After drying time removed clamps and placed right side up. I cut over sized boards and guled up panels for doors, also cut rails and stiles for said doors. Set them aside. I’ll plane them to 1/2” thick and cut to size tomor...
A tip I submitted for improving the operation of metal dust gates was published in Popular Woodworking a year or so ago. They have given me permission to post this tip for the benefit of those who might not have seen it before. This tip allows you to avoid having to use two hands to position and secure a standard metal dust gate. The concept is to hold the gate in any desired position with rare earth magnets rather than with the small screw included with the gate. There are two ways t...
I mentioned a few days ago about the flooded basment becuase of a frozen water pipe. Things are getting back to normal. We have heat (new furnace) and are slowly digging out from the mountains of stuff piled throughout the house. The basement has dried out nicely. They put in some massive blowers and dehumidifiers and there isn’t any wet spots left in the entire place. Quite a difference from arriving home last Sunday to fiind this mess: Tuesday: This is the emptiest its e...
Just an FYI. At the St Louis Wood Show, there will be saw stop demos at 1:30, 3:30 and 5:30 Saturday and Sunday. Show is a little on the small end, probably economy related. On the other hand, sales staff doesn’t seem to be as pushy this year.

I havent seen snow that stuck to the ground here in The Lowcountry in SC since 1989 right after Hurricane Hugo. But this evening we got about 4-6inches on the ground. Pretty Awesome if I must say. One story from tonight my 3yr old wanted to build a snow man. So I tried to throw something together and she said “Daddy, that looks like a snow turtle, and I was like I’m sorry I dont built these often”.
I have found a project where a number of Eucalyptus are being remove to make way for a new freeway interchange. I have been told they are working tonight when they can close a land of the freeway. I am due to arrive to their site at 4:30 AM to load out serverl Red Eucalyptus and possibly a stringy Bark Eucalyptus. I will be taking my CAT to the site to load the trailer. I will need to return to the shop, unload and go back to the site to retireve the CAT. I expect the day to be about 10 ...
Today I received a call from Dale at ACME Tools in Cedar Rapids. A couple of weeks ago I asked if they had any router plates. Dale said that they were out but there were some that were supposed to be arriving any day. He checked the computer, and the order was a couple of days past due. I find the people at ACME tools to be helpful and they are very patient with my lack of knowledge. The next two times I walked in, Dale saw me and said that the Rosseau plate wasn’t in yet. I didn’...
