I set up the router table to make the slots for the slide rails. I just used a 1/2” straight bit to make the groove and I sized my rails to fit later. So here I used a chisel to square up the fronts of the grooves that I just routed. This is not really necessary it will just make it easier to adjust the drawers forward or backward if they don’t line up just right, Which they didn’t in the end. I had to remove just a bit more towards the front on one side so that they ...

Hello every one this is my latest video where I show you some tips that I have learned on how to use lighting effects in custom layout.Be sure to check it out and let me know what you thinkhttps://youtu.be/Tj59OumOElAThanks. Scott Marshburn.
I made some headway yesterday on things, but I still need to remain focused. I realize that this is a time of opportunity for me and I don’t want to let it pass me by. I suppose that puts a bit of pressure on me, but I am rather used to that and in some ways I think I even thrive on it. Sometimes my best work comes from being under the gun. We will just have to hope that this is one of those times. I spent a good part of the day creating the pattern packet for the birthday calend...

I’ve been spending to much time on my PC. So I’m kicking my butt out to my shop, & see what I can get accomplished.
Shop ProgressSo I successfully wired up my first circuit ever. It was so much easier than I thought, I can’t believe I’ve been so afraid of electrical work before. Anyways, I have 3 lights wired to a switch, and even down to 30 degree weather, they flick on instantly. If it gets really cold, the lights will still turn on, but it will take a minute or two for them to warm up and get super bright. I bought 0 degree fixtures because I knew it would get cold during the winter. Wi...
Instead of working on the lathe stand this past weekend, the handsaw geek went a-rust huntin’. Several yard sales did not net very much of interest, as the ‘watch’ list for items is very narrow. Paydirt was found at one sale, however, as the peddler-of-the wares had a table with some vintage tools displayed on it. A veritable geek magnet. Among a pile of old wood handle screwdrivers, files, and hammers, these items were found: The plane is a Stanley #220 block, and the push...
It has been awhile. Nothing very artistic coming out of my shop the past few months. Just grinding away at different cabinet jobs. I did get 300 bd. feet of knotty maple I’m dying to cut up, but I’ll just have to wait. Training an employee has been a rush. I’ve really been looking closely at the traditional rolls we take on when we become bosses. I really believe we create our own cultures where we work. They might say quality and really believe it but in lots of places t...
