  1. I found a nice spot for lunch today. A nice easy day driving around looking at roads.

  2. I bring pictures into a cad program and then scale the image off of a known dimension and use that to extrapolate the rest of the dimensions. It never comes out clean so i usually just round to the neareast what ever makes sense. On those chairs they look more narrow. than something you'd typically see and I think that's part of the design. The other striking aspect is the delicate looking legs. my criticism of his piece is he used flat sawn wood for the legs and has a lot of grain run out. It'd look far far better with rift sawn legs and minimal grain runout. Not to mention will be stron

  3. Experimenting further, I texted the Osmo photo to myself, saved the received image and posted that: And it's upside right. So there's a work around. This is the process I used to have to go through with older versions of the forum software in order to get the image size reduced for posting. So I can say it gets to be a super PITA. The forum update before this recent one solved the downsize problem. I'm still hoping this orientation problem can be solved with some setting change somewhere.

  5. Thanks for asking. It's working out pretty good. She's a lot better off here than anywhere else anyway. The dogs are a great comfort to her too. My Wife has been absolutely amazing with what she's taken on, but it was her idea to start with. One of us has to be here all the time though, so we have to plan our days around that.

  6. Thats correct. So the "L" fence is two parts the part the fastens to the fence in 3/4 ply with 3/4 ply blocks glued to the front and back for the "L" fence to slide between. Then the "L" fence which is also 3/4 ply. With finish on everything and some wax it slides up and down real nice. Yes. When I first started using it it felt like the push block was dragging against it so I added the bevel. I like it a lot better that way.

  7. It is indeed a cool looking chair, that's why I pulled it from the trash bin. Too bad it's a most uncomfortable one. Too late for the oxalic acid, but thanks for the tip. The black streaks actually look good to me. I used a combo stain/poly mix which I'll never use again.

  12. LOL I went to the hardware store to by the fence bolts only to find that I had purchased them 2 years ago they were sitting with my toggle clamps Apparently I had been planning to build this for longer then I thought but receipts don't lie lol

  13. Most of it is Baltic birch just the dado fences are MDF. The tall fence is a melamine like substance from Menards. The only concern I would have with MDF is the fence is relatively heavy and if you were to bounce a corner it would crush pretty good.

  15. Finished up the TS jig tonight by adding the clamps. It will get its first workout tomorrow when I mill the mortise and tenons for the door/drawer parts. It's actually slid forward about 3" in the photo then it would be during use. Also milled up all the door/drawer stiles and rails. 3 drawers and 6 doors total for the bar and vanity

  16. Definitely weird considering it's water borne, that seems like the least likely candidate for causing a leak.

  17. Finally got an update on this. UPS denied the claim. They said it was packed incorrectly. It was shipped from a UPS shipping store. They repacked it, and sent it back to the seller. Their second package was damaged similarly going back the other way. I haven't talked to them yet. The seller had been handling it. I'll call them tomorrow. I don't mind filing a Complaint. It will only cost me $65, I know how to do it, because I've done it before. This will be an easy suit to win, and I'm sure will get court costs back too. Not sure how that will work from my end though. They'

  20. Alright, I have not been hiding, I've been varnishing my a*% off. Four coats top and four coats bottom after a lot of fairing and sanding of the epoxy base. After varnishing, on went the additions that make the boat complete. Here are the pics; Ready for the water, fully rigged and set up, just need to add the float bag for the front compartment; Handmade walnut handles drilled thru hull; Front bungee cords, left them a little long to see how it goes; Bungee cords again and hatch behind the cockpit; Hatch in place and off, you can see the

  21. ... and now it's a pile of ashes, along with many of my other projects. For me personally, I'm not that attached to stuff, but loosing the stuff I made and my tools is like loosing part of myself. I know many of you on here would feel the same way, perhaps that's why I'm sharing this with you.
