Good evening LJ’s,

Last week I didn’t post because I just Didn’t have a lot to do & was pre- occupied with helping out with the untimely passing of my co- worker Beverly, If you want to know more about her read my blog excellence or my latest so you think you can go pro Blog. OK on to other things for the past two days been kinda hermit around the house playing with my new toys My router table extension and my drum sander. First task of the day Thursday was to put on the cast iron wing of the router table ( I had removed the old wing prior) after getting it set up it only took about a half hour DANG! thought it might be longer ;) However now I gained 8 sq ft. of shop space where a router table sat.

Next was the UPS Freight truck Showing up in a 12wheel tractor trailer I soon became the spectacle of the afternoon as the ladies of the house wondered what the Heck I ordered that had to come this way (in a truck this big) After uncrating it, sorting out the parts, and assembling along came this Little guy.

Now I know this is a luxury but for some unknown reason I just can’t remember how I got along without it And this only after a few hours with it :) Now I can sand a 8ft x 10in board in about 1 minute versus 10 min with my random orbit sander. As I close this evening I now have put equipment in to speed up production and better quality, my next step is to build some shop cabinets similar to the ones here below as I leave you to look at what I am building next I am only using this as a base I will post pics as soon as I get some of them done :)
until next week take care
