Sueezed in some shop time today! Yay me! Here are a few shots of the dry fit and glue up on the case. Even had time to mount the face to a backer board so I had to take a peak.
Anyone own on of these? I was going to buy the Woodpecker 24” steel straight edge, but Rockler’s is 1/16” thicker, weighs more, costs less and I have a free shipping coupon. Total savings would be about $15.00.

I just finished signing in ( I’ve been lurking for about a month) and I thought it would be a good idea to say hello. I’m John Abraham, and I’ve been a professional carpenter/ painter/ plasterer/ concrete mason since leaving the USAF in 1982. After seeing some of the projects on here, I find I have wasted these last 20+ years. Not really, but my chapeau is definately doffed to quite a few of you jocks! I currently run my own business remodelling homes or whatever other pr...
A couple of months ago, I bought this bandsaw off Craigslist. It’s a great little Grizzly BS. A couple of weeks ago I bought about 50 bd ft of Black Walnut from a fella at First Monday Trade Days in Canton, TX for only $2.00 a bd ft. (killer deal). I think I forgot how big the opening is for my BS. Looks like I’ll be buying a riser block and new BS blades now. I’m going to use this lumber to build a baby crib..
So yesterday I called the guy I bought the bandsaw from to confirm the time for me to pick it up today. It’s about a 3 hour round trip for me. He answered the phone and I asked the question and I hear a long pause like he forgot I was coming… Turns out he is going to deliver it at 8AM this morning because he’s coming out here to pick up some other tool. Cool. Hey maybe I can take the bandsaw to work so I work on it after hours? Nah, I’d feel like I was cheatin...

Even though this is a full size the platform is 70” overall wide. There will be bookcases that will sit on the platform and ru...
Last night I dimensioned the sides, top and bottom for the case and chopped out some through dovetails. Hope to get some time today to dry fit the case and maybe glue it up.
Hi all of you lumberjocks… nice to finally be aboard. I have been reading all of your postings for quite some time with my husband at night. He has his [wood building] workshop and now I have mine. I am just beginning at pyrography and after seeing some of the projects on the site I feel quite intimidated. Well, I just wanted to introduce myself. I am quite impressed with all of your projects and many of the workshops I have seen.
