Okay, it’s not something I can gain a lot of prestige or money from, but it’s a personal Eureka moment that I had to struggle with on my own to understand. Being of scientific mind, I couldn’t let the issue lie from my last blog post on the shifting shades of my clock face. If the hypothesis in my blog post is out to lunch, I would love to discuss it here or on my blog site.
In this episode I start working on a display case.
Hello LJs, My blog post is up, it is fair writing, but nothing to do with woodworking today. I try to let the LJ community know when they shouldn’t bother. This might be one of those times.

After we came back in the afternoon I sanded again with 120 grit and gave them a second coat. I had a couple of drips where the pockets are from the screws but because it is at the back i decided not t...

I bet you’re all thinking “That darned fool has forgot to cut the little circular dents in the guide rails for when the drum is close to the table”, aren’t you?Well I haven’t, so there. Here’s how I do it. Now the drum is a nice cylinder I attach two 1” strips of 60 grit to the ends using double sided tape.Then I wind the table up, slowly, to cut them, soThe 60 grit and tape is then removed.
