  1. You're starting to make Drew look a bit like a tortoise. The rest of us are still trying to learn how to spell our names.

  2. Made some progress, but not a big update. So as I mentioned before the side leg houses almost all the joinery, and I need to develop legs that match each other and has certain correct relationships. In the front of the leg we need to do our front leg joint, a Maloof joint. I'll need flat areas to run the router and those flat areas need to match leg to leg and the top part of the leg needs to be parallel to the bottom of the leg. Also the angle of the flat surface on the stem for the backrest support needs to have the correct relationship to the front area. Finally, the length of the legs

  3. What if you made two different for the "head of the table" and the opposite end. Maybe even add arm rests or some other feature to make them stand out a little. This is pretty common when you look at dining sets.

  4. +2, although I sometimes use alcohol on the rollers. Waxing the bed seems to help the most. Another thought: the design uses intake air for the chip ejector fan to cool the motor. If any of the shroud is broken, or clogged with chips, that may also allow the motor to overheat, which will also trip the overload breaker.

  6. I finally caught up on this. Amazing work and it's clear that you've developed a process that works for you. The pictures of all 3 together are great!

  7. Unless you have horses. Opossums are the sole carrier of the deadly EPM virus, and like mice, they crap every few steps, which is potentially deadly to the horses. We have 150 acres of woodland that they are perfectly welcome to stay in. When they start coming onto the farm area, they get lead poisoning. Once they start coming, you can't scare them badly enough to just stay away. Why did the chicken cross the road? To prove to the possum that it could be done. Playing possum is not the best defense for two fast oncoming bright lights. We see more dead on the road than anywhere el

  8. Had another good zoo trip yesterday. Now I need to decide what to do with my 6D body. Trade for a crop body and get ~960mm out of my new lens? Sell it and buy a 2x converter and have $ left over? Keep it in the shop?

  10. I like the way you say “we” when you perform a function. Makes me fell like I’m there and part of it. However, if you make a mistake, try to remember to make it singular.

  11. I've been watching too much Frank Howarth wood turning lately but from it I stumbled upon the Celtic Knot on youtube and it looked both easy and awesome. Much more attainable than some of the things Howarth does. Beings that not many turners post her I figured why not create a dedicated post. I found a tutorial that makes it really easy. You start with a piece of square stock and set your miter gauge to 45 or 60 degrees. Really I'm not sure the angle matters a whole lot the outcome will just look a bit different. Se your blade height so you don't cut all the way through. Leave about 1/8"
