  1. Finally, the rest of my measurement tools arrived. The combo square is a PEC second, to replace the warped Empire one in the cabinet. I've got three more holders to make for the others. The little machinist square was an impulse buy. If nothing else, I shouldn't have an excuse for things being out of square.

  2. So the tables are DONE! I was going to do 4 coats of finish but the 3rd was so nice and smooth i decided to stop there. I took the table outside and got some better pictures so the details are easier to see. I'm really happy with how thin the lower rail looks. It's like 7/8" thick but looks like 1/2". I could probably stand on it. The table overall is VERY light weight. Which it should be given it's very small 8"x 30". Here it is in place. I need to make some new rear speakers to match the front ones. I also need to do some touchup work on

  5. When I was in high school the desks were the worst, the ones with the arm rest on the right. Lefties need the support because of the way we right and theres nothing there. I very rarely say I hate something but I hated those desks.

  6. Mark - I'm clearly not thinking. That logic makes perfect sense. For some reason when I looked at a jointer listing on craigslist that question popped into my head. Now I'll have to go figure out how to make left hand jointers, routers etc. Maybe I'll sell them as a one-time tool and paint them red!

  9. If you’ll deliver, I’ll darn sure take you up on it. Even buy you lunch and a beer or two! Wait, my wife says I’m not wired for 220!

  10. Went to my local woodworking store and picked up two Freud blades. One for ripping, 25T, and a fusion combo blade. THey were on sale for 20% off so i couldn't not buy them lol. I think this should cover most of the types of work i want to work on currently. But i do need to pick up a 80T blade sometime soon as i am going to be working with Plywood alot as well. Thanks for the advice. I am thinking that the freud should be more than enough for the types of work i am going to be doing. No super fine woodworking right now.

  11. Yeah, when he disappeared for a while, I called his shop to make sure something bad hadn't happened. He's still kicking, just busy.

  12. Thanks Tom, Mark, and John. I will contact Richmond Woodturners. Today I used @wtnhighlander method of moist heat to loosen both cross members under one of the side chairs. Basically, used old rag towels, moistened, and heated in the microwave in a pyrex glass bowl. I wrapped a hot rag around each of the tenon/joint areas. Took 15-20 minutes for each cross member, but eventually the glue loosened up enough for me to turn the x-member. Front legs came apart enough to remove Sheltie's chew toy. If anyone can date the chairs by logo or pdtn/part/model # 11651910, pic of logo on chair
