  1. Yeah, and my grandma just got a new doormat.
  2. Exactly and with the sliding dovetail the board is compromised from end to end.
  3. Ken I think that sliding dovetail so close to the end of the board is a recipe for disaster I'd use dowels but I know you are not confident about getting them right, so dominoes maybe the way to go.

    One ugly flower and its resident:
  5. Now that you mention that, I noticed that some modern Allen key sets come color coded out of the box. I wonder if those colors have been standardized or just random picked by each manufacturer.
  6. My favorite cheap/generic tools: A cheap tip: I always read the online user manual of whatever I'm intending to buy before ordering it.

    Hijack!

    Count me in with 33 years.
  8. No, that's a bike part, a cheap aluminum foot rest I had laying around.
  9. I broke the plastic handle of my band saw fence, so I made a new one.
  10. Yeah, but you don't have a Roubo workbench
  11. Last time I checked I'm not a Spotify shareholder
  12. I do not know if the free subscription has an offline mode. I have the family plan which gives me 4 users and that's just what I need, so it's not really expensive for me.
  13. My car is way older than that but I have an Anker Bluetooth-FM Transmitter-Dual USB charging ports, all in one small package that plugs in the cigarette lighter socket. Pretty handy little thing. It even has a built in microphone, lets me answer phone calls hands free. I use Spotify and my favorites list is set to be available offline on my phone, so I don't need an internet connection.
  14. Picked up a set of double ended ratcheting box wrenches, four metric sizes per wrench.
  15. Yeah, fewer posts, but still a great place to hang out. I'm taking a break from woodworking so I don't have much to contribute, but I visit every day because I really like this community.
  16. If you need more depth after using a template, you can always remove the template and make another pass using the mortise walls as a template, that will leave a lip you can easily remove with a chisel. You may need to switch to a smaller bushing to do so (and also adjust the depth of cut).
  17. You could rip the top and use the stripes for the edges (miter joints), wrapping a fresh rectangle of plywood. Finally you will have to edge band the entire top.
  18. Right now this is how my setup looks like: In the bottom case I have my circular saw, jigsaw, drill, oscillating multi tool, impact driver, a compact set of sockets and ratchets and a whole lot of hand tools and accessories.
  19. I've been working on my daughter's new home almost every weekend for the past two months. An endless list of repairs will keep me occupied for a while.

    I have Photoshop perpetual but I've been using Snapseed a lot on my Android tablet. Very easy to use for quick results.
  21. A new toolbox for my growing packout system. I'm setting this one up for electrical tools.
  22. I don't know if they're available for the required sizes, but engraved (or flat) Chicago screws are very nice and cannot be easily removed from the outside, especially if you use red Loctite to lock the threads.

    My "compact" setup is my Sony A6400 with a Sigma 16mm f/1.4 attached to it.
