Another forum I belong to has this going most weekends so I thought I would try and start it here. I have been working on this cherry cabinet for awhile. This weekend I think I will be just about done with the woodwork, I need to add another hinge to the left door and finish fitting the doors. The weather here in Southern Oregon is so nice though that it is hard to spend time in the shop.

Just curious, when inserting a photo with an ipad on this forum how do I rotate the picture?

I had the very same problem which went away on its own. Not that this is helpful.

But your cabinet is beautiful.

I used my photo program to rotate it. I wouldn’t have a clue how to use a smart phone :))

This is what I plan on finishing if I get time. That is if the wife doesn’t pop first. Our sons due date is tomorrow, so Im on edge to get involved in something with expecting him to be here any minute. Lord knows when Ill get another chance to get back in here when he comes.

I need to finish the footboard (bookmatched piece to the headboard) and build the rails, make sure they all fit good, then add linseed oil, let it cure, then satin wipe on poly x3 or 4. Maybe this weekend is a little ambitious.

The next pics you see from me could be a finished live edge poplar bed, or my two little girls holding their baby brother. Either way, it will be a beautiful site, and Im looking forward to both!

-- I almost post pics....until I see the daily top three...then I delete my post.

Let’s see if this works. I guess not.

I’m in Vegas for a conference, so a long way away from my shop. As spring starts I find myself spending less and less time in the shop, there are just too many outdoor projects to do now that the snow is melted.

Working 12 hours shifts this weekend so the minimal extra time is spent with the wife! I am also taking a pretty rough Medical Biochemistry class online that is definitely taking up all of my wood time.. Ask me again in a month!

Every day is a weekend when you’re retired, but today was spent moving some tools around to try and make room for another purchase, hooking two of the last three machines to the DC system, grinding some metal lathe bits so I can finish a project I started months ago, and cannibalizing parts off my bench-dog router table to make a different router table. The last thing I did before heading in to watch TV was to find a piece of scrap just the right size to replace the mallet handle I broke in January. That’ll be a simple 5-minute lathe job that I should finish sometime in August.

trippcasey – congrats on the kid, hope he shows up on time and healthy.

I don’t know how to make it do what you want it to do, I just know how to fix the pictures so they won’t rotate. Edit photo, choose “crop”. Select entire picture and save. It will load straight then.
