With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. – Eleanor Roosevelt. I read this quote and thought about it for a couple of minutes. It is short and to the point, but full of hope and a sense of adventure. The words are few, but very powerful. My day yesterday didn’t turn out so badly after all. I think it could have easily gone south, but all in all it was a good day. I learned a lot, got to reflect on some things, and also had an inspiration for another project. So ...
I was able to make some more progress today. After receiving most of the hardware needed for this table saw island, the tool racks are sliding. I also finished the wiring, so the saw doesn’t require an extension cord and the handy electrical on the ends of the bench now in use. I had to add some more wiring to supply voltage to the tool chargers on the power tool racks. You may notice the tee track is installed across the top of the bench, This track will be used to secure the sliding a...
Just a quick tutorial on how to draw through dovetails in Sketchup. In this one, I would not even want to try pins first. Tails first all the way in Sketchup. This is the first time I used Photobucket and the images are a bit odd sized to match the forum. I will fix them as I get stuff figured out. Ok, you want to make a piece the length and width of your stock: Take the end where you want to make the dovetails and right click to get the menu and select divide. You will want to m...

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, #12 When I left you last time, I’d just finished with installing the drawer dividers. Now, I finish the top rail dovetails by cleaning the sockets with a chisel, until the top of the dovetail is flush with the top.Now I need to trim the top even with the top of the legs.
