With the move to the garage I planned on making a lot of stuff but got bogged down in making fixtures. The first thing I made was a saw sled for crosscutting boards square and without a lot of tear out. I used a ¾ thick piece of shop ply from a big box store and for the runners I used my thickness planer to reduce the thickness to fit the miter slot in the table saw. Is Craftsman the only saw with 5/8 wide miter slots? The front piece of the sled was made from a piece of 2×4 planed d...
We did finish the planting for this season. The deer convinced us that a fence was needed, so we got that project done. I have been working a little in the shop, but mainly working on changing all the log piles into lumber for future use. Back when I was researching to determine what sawmill to purchase, I did not find any video to help me make a decision, so I wanted to post something in case others need a comparison.

My shop is about 40 minutes from town. So when I got a great deal on a saw and I wanted to get it set up right away, I didn’t want to wait a week or two to get a couple buddies to help me. I wanted to do it right then! Home Depot used a fork lift to place it in the back of my truck. It would be up to me to get it out. So the first step would be to disassemble the packing as much as I could to lighten it.Starting with the metal frame… There were actually several ...
I just scored two 10’ 8×6 timbers from the shoring used to ship this Mercedes Benz on a aircraft, now what to do with them.
I continue work on the night stand in this video.
