So..first task for today..after lunch, was to plop the sides onto the bench….and do a trim.. Almost just a slab….edge back by the tool well, was close enough of a match, that just a jointer plane would be needed….the edges cl...

Well, today..after tests at the local Hospital…and a nap….did a cardio workout.. This is about an hour’s worth&...
