Dave, You should be ashamed! You stole that (but I’m happy for you. Jeff, I paid $70 for the 1 TPI I’m using now. That would be a MAJOR savings. (maybe I could even afford to buy some wood instead of begging off my buddies!). I’ll order one if the can make my odd size (131 1/2”).

Good (mid)morning all,

Looks like everyone is either sleeping in, out in the shop or stuck spending time with family!!! I’m in the middle of my coffe & sunday morning shows.

I never did get to MY “To-Do” list yesterday. Perhaps today will be the day, then again…....

It was a cool, rainy day here in the Green Mountains. A great day to putter around the house but unfortunately, not in the shop.
Did you see the skydive from the edge of space??? Watching it made me want to jump out of a plane again!!!
I’m off to the chef’s house, he owes me a meal!!! I think it’s “chicken ‘n bisquits” tonight.

Cool design there David – no idea how you do it…..good for you. Am pondering doing some inlay on the tables but can’t seem to pull the trigger….....spent half the day sanding and sanding and then I sanded some more….... assembled one table and the glue in the joints was enough to damn near kill me trying to get them together. Guess they were a bit too tight…..got a bit frantic there…..

Very appropriate video there Rex…..I think on Tuesday we’ll be seeing some of that LIVE…...

Good morning guys,

Another week is upon us and I am starting out tired. I had forgotten that I needed to seal the floor before I continued, so I sealed the stone, at least in the 30” next to the wall. I completely forgot about needing to put base board in until I was ‘gently’ reminded by Miss J. So I am putting in baseboard now. The wall behind the cabinets and stove is molded in the shop white pine painted white. The exposed parts of the wall will have oak.

Rehearsals are underway for the Christmas show, “Heirlooms” at the local fancy restaurant.

I went to assemble the wall/cabinet/pipe hider I have made for behind the shower and found that one of my shelves was just a tiny bit too long. This is a wall made up of panels that are held in place by the shelves. It is designed so that everything can be removed without tools if you need access to the plumbing of the shower. I will post a sketch up to explain it a bit and a pic when I get it complete. However, I discovered I needed one more shelve to make up the area and so I glued the shelf up yesterday while the Colts were losing. I have to finished the new shelf and trim off a tiny smidge from one of the shelves so it will go together. I foolishly made the assumption that the wall in the house was straight and square. A shelf that fits the space 4” from the floor does not fit the same space 48” from the floor.

So….
I am in the process of making another flag/shodow box for our departing commander. The design I chose requires bent lamination, two mirrored sides to be specific. So the first lamination did not glue up so well. way too many/large gaps between laminations. Next lamination went really well. So I then had to make the other side on the same mold. It went well, and I joined the two pieces together at one end (the overall shape will be that of a shield, the shape of our unit patch). Went back to it a few days later and one bent lamination decided it didn’t like the shape it was bent in and significantly changed. So now the forth lamination is on the press. If this one doesn’t work I will change my design idea and bitch about the wasted wood.

DY,
Although frustrating, I hope you are enjoying your looooong awaited shop time!

I recieved two UPS pakages today. One, from Jeff/JL7, contained a replacement cutter head and blades for my DW735 planer. The other, from Amazon, held my new in/out feed tables. I’m now awaiting; dust shroud, DC adapter and hex T-wrench. Then my planer will be whole again!!!

The latest that I ever rode mine was Dec 1st. I had to get it removed from the “off street” parking spot and into winter storage. I took it for a last ride while it precipitated in the crystaline state, yeah, it was snowing!!! That was a CCCOOOOLLLLLDDDD ride. Storage was in my spare bedroom. So yes, I rode my bike through the livingroom!!!
