  1. So you guys got me curious. I have never thought much about dust on the walls so I went out tonight and looked this is 15 years of dust on the egg shell white wall at the back of my shop...No comments about the door trim it was early in my journey LOL
  2. Keep in mind that one is primarily a hand tool space which is way easier to keep clean
  3. I think it is really personal preference and most seem to be on one side or the other, I for one don't think there is a right answer as long as your getting into your shop and building something. For me I view my shop as another piece of my work so while no where near as nice as some of the shops above I did try to make it nice. I like walking in and thinking wow this is a great space to work in. I'm the same way with my roubo I still put something underneath it when performing actions that might mar it I know a lot of folks that have benches that look like they have been through a meat grinder both work for sure, just different.
  4. I have three 32", 55", & 106" for what you are going to be doing the 55" & 106" would be really nice to have.
  5. Welcome! Ultimately they do the same thing with the biggest difference being on a track its pretty hard (almost impossible) to veer off the track with a guide you just have to keep it tight to the guide. If I were doing a whole kitchen I would seriously consider getting a track saw. FWIW in my opinion you should not be breaking down sheet goods on a contractor saw but that's just me. I've seen some pretty sketch examples out on YouTube that make me cringe LOL
  6. You're not alone! Tonight I went out to the shop to start on the bath vanity wanted to get some leg material cut down so it would be ready to go Wednesday night. As i'm ripping them down on the table saw i'm thinking what is going on with my dust collection? I shut down the saw look inside and see dust accumulating so I pull the flex pipe off the manifold only to realize i hadn't opened the gate Be that as it may I did get my legs rough cut LOL
  7. They still sell corded drills Sorry Ronn I couldn't help myself LOL
  8. Nah you just had the desire to learn how to do it on your own. I think it is a great skill to have I just couldn't bring myself to do it now with all the other things I have going. I still plan to did into it someday and now I have a base line of what it can sound / look like. I agree about having it done. I still can't believe the picture improvement the sound I expected but the picture was a huge surprise. I did some more playing with it yesterday and the other thing I noticed is that before the front row was really good and the back row was good now pretty much every seat in the house is really good.
  9. You my friend have a very different opinion of humidity! I thought it was terrible on Saturday the only good thing was the sun wasn't out. Of course I ride a desk most days so spending the day in the woods cutting trees is always going to seem like real work to me LOL Your yard looks awesome!! You've got a lot done since I was over a few weeks back. Good luck with the wedding!! My daughters pre wedding wedding is the 22nd in Chicago. 30 people, masks must be worn by everyone but my daughter, the groom, the minister, and apparently me while walking her down the isle. No dancing, touching, etc should be interesting
  10. I know right glad it went down the way it did now I can make a vanity, finish the doors and drawers, and finally get back to furniture making
  11. Not gonna lie I even cracked one today is I sat playing every DVD I could think of with a great soundtrack with a big smile on my face LOL
  12. So been busy knocking off little things... molding by patio door complete 1/4 round installed in bar Sink is in and working Other than doors and drawers the bar is complete Also this week I received the vent so I can do the final on the popcorn fan, who knew it would take 11 weeks to get such a simple piece lol Finally in a twist of luck Friday I was researching how to dial in my sound system when I quickly decided it was just not in my lane and I really didn't have the time or desire to learn how to do it at this time. So I reached out to a well known calibrator from OH to see when he might be in the MPLS area. Well he texted me yesterday morning to say not only was he in MN but had a free day and if I wanted he could come out, after 10 hours he had both my projector and sound system calibrated and let me tell you I am ecstatic!! I thought it was great before but now its down right awesome if I do say so myself Funny how life just works out sometimes... While he was doing that I had a crew of folks at my house working with me cutting down some dead trees that were threatening the neighbors power lines so it was a very productive day on multiple fronts.
  13. Tom I use a commercial version of a similar tool. I have the 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4" ones they work well and you can make 18-20" at a time https://www.elkheadtools.com/dsts.html
  14. I used something similar to this on my spray room but the are exterior doors. https://www.homedepot.com/p/MMI-Door-72-in-x-80-in-White-Internal-Grilles-Right-Hand-Inswing-1-2-Lite-Clear-Glass-2-Panel-Primed-Steel-Prehung-Front-Door-Z029742R/302694187
  15. If I was to do it again I would go with T1-11 siding painted white as well. Mine is dry walled, taped, and painted white but the convenience of being able to mount things anywhere would be great. I would still drywall, tape and paint the ceiling just for the finished look.
  16. Money wise probably substantially cheaper to get them at the same time but if you only get one get the plunge first since it can be used as fixed based but a fixed base cannot be used to plunge...well shouldn't be used to plunge
  17. In general not well you should cover epoxy with a top coat like spar varnish. As a foot pad should be fine I did the same on my work bench leg bottoms.
  18. No that's not normal... see above for what it should be like
  19. Wow what an endeavor! I know you will figure it out but my hats off to you I don't think I would have made it this far
  20. pkinneb

    We're fine

    Wow glad you guys were spared...definitely not fun to have to deal with that especially with everything else going on in the world today.
  21. Looks great! Definitely some squirrely grain/color in that one piece
  22. Glad you figured it out! The good thing is you will never make that mistake again, oh and we've all been there
  23. First up today I knocked out the last three cloth picture frames With these complete the exercise room is done! Just a few items in the bar and bath left... After reading the mastic instructions I decided the quickest and easiest thing to do re the metal bar top mounts was run get a piece of 1/4" drywall and go over them Then I started to tile I ended up getting a 4 1/2" diamond blade for my grinder and with the use of some scrap poplar and 2 clamps I was able to cut what I needed. Again it was the cheapest way to accomplish what I need which was just a few cuts. In a couple days I'll grout it and that will be one more thing of the list.
  24. Correct they are flush with the drywall. The outlet box is a remodel box so I can pull it out no issue there. Lol yep
  25. That sounds like a really good plan, thanks!! Nope the boss already picked and purchased the tile
