Some days we should just stay out of the shop. Today I was starting a new toy project. I have been looking at the plans now for a few days. First part to build was the base, as everything else is built to fit the base. The first piece of wood I cut a full inch short. I just don’t know how this happened. I thought I had measured correctly…... Guess the eyes are going.
No big deal, just cut another one. This time I checked the dimensions twice and cut once. OK, now I have a piece I can work with. This base required some cut-out for the wheel attachment, 1/2 inch deep, 3 1/4 inches long…... didn’t I cut them 3/4 ” deep…. scrap another piece of wood….
That’s it for today…... now of to the lumber yard ! :-)
Just doesn’t pay to get out of bed some days.
