Sometime’s, when one talks about his plans it serves to focus the mind.
Yesterday, I built a prototype for a 1” wide ZCI insert so it could be replaced without replacing the entire saw insert. I’d post pics but it’s for an older ShopSmith and so, not of wide interest. Anyway, I’m now working on a method to use the over arm pin router to produce them in multiples to have on hand.
My sons and, one DIL, own several pistols. Plans are to build presentation boxes, at least one for each owner (3). The gun(s) will rest in a form fitting recess covered by barked glove leather. The boxes will be mesquite w/ walnut accents. Some with dovetails and some with box joints. Maybe one with keyed mitered corners. Might do an inlay on the tops. Might as well build one for me, too.
When those are done, one son wants a long gun cabinet. Oak in this case. Found some plans online that were first published by Pop. Mech. He and family are in Okinawa for another 3 1/2 years. Got some time, there.
Then, one son’s fiancee smokes very expensive cigars. She has a beautiful humidor, but want’s me to make another one. I’d like to try it.
Finally, I’ve always wanted a router duplicator. Got plans in a stash somewhere.
That’s enough to keep me busy for the next week or so. :-))
