    Dining room table - COMPLETE

    I just went through the whole journal, Chet and you did an awesome job. Really nice clean work! If I ever visit your side of the continent I'll be sure to stop by and have a meal at that table with you :-)

    Trestle Table

    Tapatalk is back! A few weeks back I started a new table. It is the same design as Marcs (from Youtube). This table will be just under 8' so I had to modify all the part sizes. Basically the same design though. I will try to give a quick run down on where I'm at with this thing. I started it in January. Feels like ages ago lol. Milled the stock for the legs Glued up the legs and squared them up on the shooting board Made the feet and the top supports Cut the mortises Made the tenons Cleaned up all the parts before glue up Glue up Next step was the stretcher . I cut the cheeks on the bandsaw These are huge tenons so I cut the shoulder el hando. Scribed the shoulder lines with marking knife then chiseled back to the line for saw registration. Sawed away Decent fit. I'll post the rest tomorrow. This took forever lol. Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk

    Glue up squeeze out

    That can't be the Trip (HHH) that used to be on here. Trip was a super nice guy, that guy sounds like an arrogant bag of douche. Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk

    New house and new shop !

    So we are moved in and more or less settled. We are so happy at the new place. The last few weeks has been a serious whirlwind. I've taken a few pics of the shop tear down, the shop move and now starting to setup the new shop. We got the keys a week before we moved so it gave me a chance to do some renos in the house and build a new shop floor. The new shop is a standard double garage, (20x20) not huge but doable. Here is a pic of the new space. There was a fridge and some cabinets in there that I had to get rid of. The last shop was smaller and it had the stairs and landing inside the shop which made it even smaller. The stairs and landing are in the house so i have the full 20x20 which is nice. I ran a drain for a sink before building the floor Since we were building the floor before my spray foam guy came, we put some 2" xps against the wall where the first framing member would lay. We steel studded the concrete wall so we had something to attach the plywood to after wall was spray foamed Spray foam guy came next morning My buddy ( a general contractor ) helped me with everything. He laid the shims as i went behind him gluing them in. Here are a few pics Next up we laid the advantech. All screwed of course While we were doing this my painter and my dad and bro were painting the house. They painted 18 gallons of paint in three days. It went really well. My painter had an epoxy kit leftover from painting the army base floor that he said i could have. . So it was a good few days of work. House was painted, shop floor built, built a bedroom for my son (framed, gyprocked, plastered, finishing, electrical and paint. Built him a decent closet in there as well) Changed a bunch of plumbing i wasn't happy with and my electrican came a ran a few wires that i needed. After 6 good days of work, most of them still working my day job, it was time to move the house. This was a disaster. The movers showed up at 4pm. I was freaking out. They finished at 2:30 am. Two trucks and 6 guys. The owner of the company was aware he screwed up and felt really bad so he only charged me 950$ !! I couldn't believe it. I thought it would be a couple thousand for sure. The day after moving the house, me and a few buddies moved the shop. Turns out I have a lot more stuff than i ever thought I did !! Here are a few pics I tried my best to not have a panic attack while moving all these things. I was pretty stressed out. I was in good hands cause my friend Dan that I put in charge of this part of the move,had experience doing this. He moved his shop (22000 sq ft) last year and he has massive tools compared to my little baby tools. Here are a few pics of when we arrived at the new space. I woke up a happy man the first night there. This is my view when I opened my eyes....all sugar maple ! :-) Here are a few pics of the new place. Its on a cul de sac. This neighborhood was built right in the middle of a sugarbush. Massive old sugar maples all around me. Im in heaven... This maple is huge in the front yard Back to the shop.... I got a few things done this week before my hvac gut came to start the ductwork Wood racks up Wood loaded up Got the cyclone mounted and cabinets moved Hvac guy got a few hours done and will be back Thursday to finish. I haven't been super active the last few weeks since im not woodworking. Don't want to be an armchair woodworker. I will keep you guys up to date on this. I should be up and running soon enough. My Electrician should be here on Friday. Pretty excited to have my shop back again ! Sent from my SM-N910W8 using Tapatalk

    New house and new shop !

    Its holding up very well on the advantech. On the 2x10 stair tread to the house there is one small spot that it is peeling. Overall I'm really happy, its tough stuff. Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk

    Clamping a half lap joint.

    That is exactly how I would clamp it minus the 2 clamps on the face, one would be enough there.
