    All types of wood working. I like to make cabinets, furniture, boxes and milling lumber. I find chainsaw carving cool.

  1. I saw this this morning, first thing I did was check the calendar, wasn't April 1, so just shook my head.
  2. Mark search for a guy on YT named Lars Christiansen. I believe he works for the developer of fusion360.
  3. @SteverinoThis is going to be your biggest issue. I provided a quote for someone several years ago for wine boxes. They wanted high quality but didn't want to pay for that quality. A lot will depend on the type of joinery and any extras.
  4. So your saying you reached CNC light speed and lived to tell about it!
  5. I would guess that it is a problem with the feed rollers, I'm sure there is a way to adjust.
  6. I wouldn't try to do this over the phone or via email. Take the board back to them so the can really see the condition, cause person you are talking to may not know what is normal and just passing on the company line about returns.
  7. Wow! Mark that is really nicely done!
  8. Looking at your recent sketches, I now have to change my opinion and agree that having the gable end facing the street looks good. I had another thought, depending on the age, construction methods, etc. of the current garage, it may be more cost efficient to tear down the existing garage, build a 24 X 48 post frame or prefab garage closer to the house. I looked into doing a garage addition (24x28) with living space above (16x24) and the best estimate we got was close to $80k, granted I'm in the NY metro area. I could have bought a 2 story prefab garage for around $36k, add in $6-8k for a slab, still cheaper.
  9. First thing when you go meet with the building department bring donuts and coffee. Personally the addition to the front part looks funky in the sketch. I would find a way to build a complete second floor over the garage, make it an office, bonus room or something. That should allow you to create a similar roof line as the house, then for the shop addition you could do a sloped roof. All that said, you and the CEO need to decide what looks best.
  10. When Spanky shows up at the mill in a new Mercedes we will know Coop finally visited the mill and bought his lumber.
  11. I would agree that having the extension tables perfectly co planer isn't probably a big deal because as you mention there is a good portion on the cast iron table. However you need it as close as possible and if you have a difference of 1/1000" it is fine. It's a table saw wing not the space shuttle.
  12. Yes a lot of people stabilize blanks. If small parts are pinky you can flood with CA glue as well.
