  1. "Thats what she said"
  2. prayers to Mat and his family at this very tough time, thanks Ross you're a good man, keep us posted on how to help
  3. I’m with @RichardA thanks for the ride, but he’s wrong, you’ve already impressed us, looking forward to the next build
  4. We think alike, did this one several years ago it was starting to get some color when I took this shot, yours is beautiful well done sir !
  5. Now that beats anything on TV IMO, we trade off with friends about twice a week to enjoy a fire, well done @Coop, temps going down to the 30’s this week sitting around a fire with great friends is the best !
  6. I’ve done it both ways, I prefer face up, I can clamp a stop on the board and I like that the chips aren’t trapped between the wood and the table IMO
  7. Looking better all the time @gee-dub well thought out, I like it
  8. Great job Ross and thanks for the ride ! The details and finish are right on, lots of work and it shows, well done sir
  9. Ok now I’ve got shop envy, man that shop looks awesome @gee-dub well done
  10. Great ride @Chet and absolutely beautiful work, and an inspiration for those of us who work in a small shop
  11. Always good to see a fellow vet here, nice job and welcome home !
  12. I just use the rip fence to hold it down, just be sure not to raise the blade into the bottom of your fence
  13. I’ve made a lot of them out of wood for my Delta saw, I used the original plate for a pattern, used double stick tape and a pattern bit in the router table, made a whole set for different sizes of dado blades
  14. Another vote for L.A. Awesome from the dollar store thanks to @gee-dubfor that advice that stuff works ! And he has the procedure down pat
  15. Yeah that counts for sure, no table saw in sight
  16. Had a tool and die maker make this one for me, carbide cutter, slowest speed and feed possible and the workpiece clamped very tight, works great but there is still that pucker factor

    Glad you’re ok Ross, it’s a lesson for all of us that unusual things happen in the shop that could have been prevented, another reason my wife stays out of the shop when power tools are running
  18. That’s a great bench ! Man I wish I had room for one, that’s a beauty and a nice shop for it to live in for years to come
  19. +1^ Another great piece, well done @Bmac

    Thanks to everyone, it’s been a great ride for sure, you young folks will be there someday, and from what I read on here are doing it better than I did
  21. Wishing you a quick recovery @gee-dub sounds like all went well, glad you’re ok and back to 100% in short order

    Celebrated 49 years with this pretty girl yesterday, now what to do when the big 50 comes
  23. Really coming together nicely Ross, I really like this build, well done !
  24. Great work as usual Drew, as a new front door for our house is in the near future, QS white oak, using “green” cedar what concerns do you have about wood movement ? ie warping with temp and humidity changes? Oh yeah and see if you can talk them out of painting it, beautiful wood
  25. Wow @Coop you be safe I sure hope it isn’t that bad
