« Part 1: A simple carcase Part 2 of 003: under [garage] door shelving cabinet series Part 3: shelves »

I recently remembered that my Canon PowerShot SD500 IS Digital Elph Longest Name For A Camera Ever has a time-lapse mode. You can set it to capture a frame every 1 or 2 seconds. I’ve been pointing it at my work areas lately with the latter (less frequent) capture setting, and just letting it run for an hour or two. It’s fun to watch later, though it pains me to know that no matter how hard I try, I’ll never accomplish anything at this speed.

This is me doing some of the work mentioned in this series’ first post, cutting the baltic birch scraps up into panels for the carcase, and routing in some adjustable shelf standard grooves with my RIDGID laminate trimmer. It ends when after the day’s first pocket hole, my cordless drill runs out of juice. I always have the other charged, but this time, the charger had been unplugged. Sigh…

In other news, I’ve learned a bit more about video embedding, and have themed the colors in this embedded YouTube video to match those of the LJs site itself. Looks nice.

Very cool video, must get me one of those cameras . It was kinda like watching a hairy superman, but without the silly costume. I,m sure one of those frames had you scratching your butt!

Wow, watching you make thousands of movements. We all do that I’d guess in the production of a project; cleaning in between and setting things up just right. It’s amazing we aren’t all skinny from the calories burned!

The part that sticks out the most to me is how often you vacuum your workspace. Something for me to learn from.
