  2. Somehow my account had the wrong email listed without my knowledge. David got one of the Admins to find and fix the problem so I could reset my password and get signed in again. THANK YOU !

  3. Finished up the welder cart, this morning. Ready to put it to work tomorrow. I used two metal water hose holders, to coil separately the gun hose, and the grounding wire. There is even a little holder that keeps the gun out of harms way, and lets it fit under the cover. Nothing sticks out past the sides of the rig. I didn't keep up with total cost, but it can't be much more, and probably less than the simple, open cart Miller sells for this welder. One of the tool cabinet drawers doesn't even have anything in it yet.

  4. After leaving a popular forum that was taken over by ads, I tried to run my own forum. I did do based on only donations. After several years I gave up. Donations do not come in on a timely manner or consistent bases. I’m not sure why they changed things or by how much. I’m just thankful to have a forum available to use at the moment. .

  6. Another afternoon project to keep the fiancé happy completed. Next project actually contains woodworking. Planter box with a trellis. Should spruce up the back yard quite a bit.

  7. When I hear drawers and doors slam, I know it’s time to load up the puppy and go for a ride. Nothing good could come from staying around. Looking good Drew!

  8. Check out the packing job amazon did for a box of protein bars. Foam lined box with an ice bag inside. I dare say they went a bit overboard.

  10. I can't make any recommendations regarding respirator usage that is a personal choice. Even with a hepa filtration and cyclone i wear one when working on my table saw as it throws fine dust everywhere. It's a fault of table saws not the collection unit.

  12. I do not but I've been meaning to pick sup up and give it a try. At this point i just haven't had a project that I wanted to give it a shot on yet. I want to try it on something that is larger and flat like a table or desk but i don't have one of those types of projects on my list in the near future. I do plan to install some hardwood flooring in my house and when I do it's goign to get coated with Rubio.

  13. This comes up frequently. If I could only have one I would go medium (about 3/4") but, I really love my large. Both are Veritas which I find easier to hold and control. That doesn't mean they are the "best". They just work best for me ;-) Some people find the grip awkward. For me it is ambidextrous and falls right into my hand.

  14. I'll toss in one more option. A bit of a challenge, but super strong miters. See this post and thread.

  16. That would have been a MFN (merchant fulfilled) shipment. Amazon won’t fulfill refrigerated or perishable goods. Tpt beat me to it.

  18. The rails don't look all that wide maybe 4"-5". You could do all of your methods and be ok. Bridle joint is another possibility and is the one that is used on the wood whisperer guild project. If you are looking to build this table that project could be well worth your money. I'd probably go splined miter if i was building the table. Wide miters can be difficult to get to close evenly as 45 degree angles can be tricky. If you are confidant on nailing the miters a M&T butt joint would be my 2nd go to. Dowels would also work.

  19. So this is more remodeling than woodworking but I'll return to woodworking. Part of the launday room remodel was moving the water lines to the left roughly 4 feet. I typically like plumbing work and sweating pipe is usually fun to me but this was a difficult location and I ended up having to remove and fix 2 joints that ended up leaking. It didn't take much work to fix the leaks but it was annoying. Now it's all sealed up. After the plumbing I had to fix some dry wall damage which went fast and easy. Next up is to mount this large pile of soft close drawer slides in

  20. As many of you know my father passed away a week ago Monday and as we work through the process one of the things that came up was the need for an URN for his ashes. The family decided to go with a wooden box type urn. As the funeral home showed us what was available they either looked really cheap or the prices climbed to the $1K range. Knowing my father (who was quite cheap LOL) I offered to make the the box and thought I would take you all along for the ride. First up was the design we wanted something clean and fairly simple yet nice. I decided to go with what I had in the shop so originall

  21. I remember when I did this. The only way it worked was to stack each completed cabinet and cupboard in our living room. It took me about six months of days off to finish. Then I took a two week vacation to rip out the kitchen, do any repairs and then put it back together. Refrigerator was on the back patio and we used our Coleman camp stove to cook.

  23. Attached the bottom tonight and took some final beauty shots. Wish I would have had more time to play with some additional inlay strips recommended by Scott Grove but can't risk mucking this one up so I will probably make another similar one to try that on. That's a wrap! Thanks for following along
