Well this is the second time I’ve wrote this I tried to slip in a picture and ended up losing my whole blog. Oh well, what else have I got to do, it ain’t the first time. To the blog: I’ve spent the better part of two days trying to track down all the parts to my blower/vac I’m talking 200 mph of sucking and blowing power ow, ow, ow, ow, more power (tim the tool man). I needed it because I’ve got about 6-8 inches of saw dust and chips from all the planing and jointing I’ve done in the last six months. Working on my daughters hope chest and now this table am finding lots of good purpleheart, cherry and tools, bisquits,cords, just a lot of wood and junk. I have been spending a lot of time on the aprons on the scrowll saw. Very tedious,but I think it’s going to be worth it. Got the legs done, mortised and am
gluing up the table top tomorrow. Or when it gets over 50%. Also going out tomorrow to cut up some walnut with my cousin where I got the cherry. Most of it is between 6-8 inches just right for the lathe. I’ve been reading up on segmented turning and would like to give that a shot. I love walnut it is beautiful. The grain, color You can’t go wrong with it. Oh, and it’s stable. Everyone have God Blessed Sunday. Jockmike

Hi Mike! I usually load my photos first, then check the preview…I’m looking forward to see the scroll was work.

Mike, I never thought of using a blower for cleanup but it sounds like a good idea to me. I can’t wait to see your pictures.

I’d go with PhotoBucket because that’s what is described in the HELP file.. then you have the step-by-step process right there

(let me know if there’s anything I can do to help)

Mike I use flickr.com. But if there are instructions that point to photobucket. try it first. If you still have a problem send me a message and I’ll call and we can walk through it.

Glad to see someone else in here is “photo impaired” like me. ;-) And a walnut lover to boot. Bless you Mike.

http://flickr.com/ is the one I use, Mike. There is also, Pando that Don turned me onto. Sounds like you’re going to have a beautiful table with scrolled aprons on it. I’d sure like to see those pictures, ol’ buddy.
