  1. Really nice looking, job well done.  Just start using it, don't worry about dinging it, it's going to happen and there is nothing you can do to stop it.  When it does you can breath a sigh of relief and get on with life.  The other thing you can do is go out and give it a wap with a hammer and get on with life right now. :lol:

    should the vertical dividers run top to bottom

    This is what I would do.  You could do your horizontals with sliding dovetails.

    I don't see any reason why you couldn't use ply for the dust panels other then the possibility of adding some weight depending on the thickness you chose to use.

    Congratulations to you and Megan.

  3. Coop, the stand the planer is on is the one thing in my shop that isn't on casters.  The planer is on the dust system, the DC is right behind it in the picture.  You can just see the flex hose in the upper right of the picture.

    After watching probably too many videos, I’ve decided to go ahead and sacrifice this piece to the paint gods. 

    After seeing what this piece started out looking like, and what you have had to do as far as repairs and sanding, I think that is a good choice.  AND it won't be in your house so you won't be seeing it much if at all.  Out of sight, out of mind.

    Thanks for letting us all know what is going on. I assume that the web hosting and domain registration fees were paid for some period in advance, so the site may continue to exist for a while?

    If it is like my website the host pulls automatically once a year from my bank account.  If Charles Neil still has an existing bank account and this is the way the website was set up the site could stay up for quite a while.

    Anyone have experience with coatings for changing the color of fiberglass?

    Ross I looked in to this about ten years back and if I remember you can do it with regular waterborne paint.  In the long run I did it the easier way and remodeled to whole bathroom so I never really tried it.

    I've slid backwards ... bought a pocket hole jig.

    All is good as long as you don't go out and buy the pro model.

    I'm going to have to find a special spot to hide it.

    Be careful or you won't know were it is when you next need it.;)

    I have had one for about 6 years and I was glad I did to two times I used it since then.

    By the way, don't point out what you think are fails.  Only you know what and where they are. They are learning tools for you.

    This is true, and they aren't failures they are mistakes and you can learn form mistakes.  You will also learn how to fix mistakes and if you are like me you will get enough chances and get really good at fixing them to the point where even you don't see them.
