Hi Sam! I see that you are looking into a WW class at Port Townsends school. I looked at their schedule, what class do you plan on taking? I sounds like a lot of fun. I hope to see you around. If you are ever in the Puyallup area, stop in!

I'm over in Bellevue, or as the rest of the world refers to it, Seattle. I'm always up for project days if anyone cares to stop by.

That's so true. People get confused when they see pictures of my place. "Aren't you in Washington?" Yes, the dry side. lol

Hmm, that offer is reason enough to consider the place. Oh, and the coffee.

I plan on taking one of Bonnie's turnning classes at Port Townsend School of Woodworking in October. I'm Active Duty so I need a Pass to travel that far away from Ft. Lewis for the weekend (it also means that I won't have duty then). I'm born and raised in Kent myself, moved to Yelm after serving in Germany and Hawaii.

    • I cut 1.5" deep motises instead of 2.5" and it seems to work fine. Thanks for the heads up before I did way too much work! Thanks! I was planning on doing this just to knock down the edges to save my fingers but I'm glad it is going to help too. 6 motises each 1 1/8 by 1 1/8 by 1 1/2 to allow for a better wedge for the holdfasts. First time doing multiple hand cut mortises. Not that much fun when the bench is on the floor and you have to work around the legs and supports. Oh well still a good experience. Now to sharpen my poor chisel.
    • I've been using this GVS elipse sometimes. And it's compact feels light on the face and works fine. I always struggle with the right combo of mask and safety glasses especially since I like to wear the overear ear protection too. It starts to get a little congested up there on the noggin. Its a little weird but I n the end I actually find my 3m Full face mask to be the most comfortable.  The weight sits on a larger surface area around your head. Sure if it's hot and your in the shop for a few hours it can get a little annoying but I like it. It definitely looks like overkill but I don't even get dust in my eyes much less larger pieces of shrapnel. 
    • You are going to be happy with it Micks.  I have gotten real used to having mine in the shop.
    • It is.. I've got a bit of asking forgiveness in store myself.  
    • Tomorrow I hope to get far enough in setting up Mach4 to be able to test the motors.  Here's my 'bench' setup for testing -
