Mkay. So I suited up to spend some time in my shop – trying to get the workbench pieces finished so I can carry inside for downstairs assembly – or even better – get it all assembled and move it inside :D So I completed the dog hole routing the other day, and moved onto cutting the notches. I was able to get the notches cut in J,K.L,M,N the first round -
Apparently the tape measure 1 1/4 is different from the combination square’s 1 1/4
I adjusted the blade height for the rest of the cuts to make sure it was more towards the 1 1/4 mark and continued on. I cleaned them out with a chisel as best as I could see, but I wish they would’ve come out a bit cleaner – That probably should’ve been my first sign something wasn’t going quite to plan – buuut it didn’t .
So I finished those up and set them aside. I grabbed pieces O,Q,R, and both S’s to put the end notches in at least the longer pieces. I was getting a bit frustrated with the Irwin blade I have on the circular saw (kinda funny since I just bought it and might have 20 cuts in with it, but it was burning and just being ornery) so I switched it back out for the dewalt blade I had in.
notched the ends, and took them apart to start laying out the separate notches and noticed this from the previous blade:
debating on how to fix since I’m betting they may all be like this. Don’t exactly want to make them any deeper either since they’re already a tad deep. thoughts/ideas?
