After bringing the beast home last night, I tore into it this evening after nearly emptying the garage. It is truly amazing how much wood I have that I havent paid anything for, you would think that would make it easier to get rid of…. But getting back to the project at hand.

This is where we begin. It doesnt look like much but I assure you two grown men wont move this around without grunting.

I havent taken it off the table yet, tomorrows project but not much left but a carcass.

Cutter head and rollers, these will be evapo-rust bound

most of the little pieces including the table complete with dirt dobber nests underneath.

All of this was on the floor when I started this morning. Alot of Mahoganhy, Meranti, pine, a little bit of Tigerwood and Ipe. It really was amazing to add another piece to the garage and feel like I gained room at the same time.
Looking forward to this winters dust collection project.

P.S. I even fit in the kids bike at the end of the evening.

I feared for the bikes! Looks like lots of work, hopefully you can make some dust with her.

Have your say...
