    • I think finding a side gig that aligns with your skills and interests can be a great way to supplement your income and maybe even discover a new passion along the way. The flexibility of working from home can't be beat! On the topic of side jobs from home, I've been exploring a few options myself lately. With the rise of remote work and freelancing opportunities, there are so many ways to make some extra cash from the comfort of home. Whether it's freelance writing, virtual assisting, or even starting a small online business, there's something out there for everyone.

    • so, I scraped down the top, and one way or another it will end up "good enough". But while I think about that, I had to put the profile round the edge ... I'm sure there are router bits that would get all this done in 30 seconds ... but we're doing it the slow way here ... Curved moulding profiles are always slow. The profile needs two rabbets ... the first is 1/8 at the edge of the veneer, and with these thick veneers, after trimming the veneer I was almost there, just a quick pass with the router plane. The second rabbet is about 1/2 deep. First using the knife and a chisel to get a "wall" along the curve. That gives me something for the #71 to register against, so then repeated cuts with this, occasionally stopping to clear out the waste with a chisel until I'm down to the line. Once I have my rabbets, I need to make a bevel where the cove will go ... doing this with a chisel until I'm down to the line in both sides. Then I can cut the cove, first with a carving gouge, and then a scraper. The bead is done the same way, with a gouge and scraper. Then it's all cleaned up with sandpaper. And the top has a profile. It's only sanded to 60 grit at the moment, before I give it a final sanding, I have to decide what I'm doing with the ugly corners of the veneer edge banding.
    • Get what you can out of it like it is before looking for improvement.  I expect it will be fine.   I don't find that guides make a lot of difference in properly tuned bandsaws.  I even used my 24" once with the table and upper guides off of it to get more than stock resaw capacity for one job, and it didn't make much difference even with no guides at all.
