  1. Cleaned up really nice Tom, and yep Labor Day is for working, checked off a bunch of stuff today, but tonight, camp fire, brats and hamburgers with s’mores for desert with the kids and grandkids, then back to work in the shop tomorrow as usual.
  2. i agree Coop, its worth watching. also got it from @Ronn W, thanks Ronn
  3. My son has been there, great place he says
  4. i did Coop, QS white oak, walnut and some more cherry, next time i'll take more money
  5. went to Milwaukee and went to my son's wood guy, really good person, lots of various wood, spalted maple, birdseye maple, slabs all kinds, flame birch and many more his web site is under and his name is Allen, sorry the link won't post for some reason but here's a couple of pictures, not at his place all the time so give him a shout before you go there
  6. went to Bay View near Milwaukee to visit our son and his family, his father-in-law has a sail boat and took us out on lake Michigan for half a day, man what a great time, and nice to get away from the wood shop for a couple of days!
  7. Congratulations John and Mrs. John, Also hope all are doing well, girl or boy John ?
  8. Nice work John and just in time ! And yeah, cherry because well cherry
  9. I agree you should buy your wood according to your needs, but next time I’m there I’ll take some pictures of 8/4 cherry for @Chestnut and he has some WIDE boards to big for the main pile, 5/4 cherry close to 20” wide along with other species
  10. Well @Coop it’s mostly because I was almost out of wood of any kind, there will be 2 of those folding children’s chairs for gifts, cutting boards and sputles, M&M dispensers for a craft fair my daughter talked me into doing, not excited about doing that but I promised her I would, no interest in slab work at this time, making a trip to Milwaukee next month to visit our son and will meet with his supplier and maybe bring home more
  11. My go-to lumber yard has the cherry(blue end) picture the 3 top boards are 14” wide! They stayed there for now, I needed maple, walnut and a couple boards of 6” cherry. The other shot is of a new place I found, tons of all kinds of slabs if that’s your thing, he did have some cherry 4/4 and I brought home about 60’ of that, he saws, dries all of the wood he has and has a 20” planer on site, I think I’ll have to go back soon
  12. Wow Ken a 2 planer shop, fill in some details please
  13. no advice on dealing with the wife, i've had one for 50 years and she still runs this house, on the drill press, i have an old floor model and it comes in handy on occasion, i would not have a bench top one for the reasons you stated, check the local sales places and maybe you'll have some luck, and clean out that garage ! you know the first rule in the book states "we must do what they say" good luck
  14. Great looking piece Ross, well worth all the effort, that really came together nicely, well done !
  15. Yep a little too much but we all have been there, better too much than too little, what’s it going to be ?
  16. Totally agree with @Chet and @wtnhighlander, having said that I think the reaction by @..Kev was off base, it’s a woodworking forum enjoyed by many, especially me and to threaten locking a thread because of a post such as made by @JohnG doesn’t sit right with me, JMO
  17. beautiful now and only better with time, one of the nice things about cherry and why i like it so much
  18. Great work and beautiful wood go together, well done sir! Thanks for the ride
  19. I've always wanted to see/help build a building with them what an awesome experience !

    Sharp looking vehicle Drew, love that new car smell, be sure to report your impressions of it, I’ve heard lots of good things about them
  21. Wow Ross I wish all my saves were that good, well done sir!
  22. i'll be interested in this topic, i have one but it does not have wheels, i like it but hate dragging it around the shop, on the other hand i wonder if wheels would be a good thing or not

    The Sox are playing the Yankees tonight at the Field of Dreams just west of here, there was a lottery drawing for tickets and we were not successful, but there will be a game next year per MLB, myself and my family have been there many times, magical place for sure, if you get this way stop and see it you won’t be disappointed
  24. I think @Tpt lifenailed it, false drawer face with felt on dividers is the way I would go, easy in and out, no slides to worry about, just a pair of hinges and a magnetic catch or two
