  1. Seems like Grizzly is having a sale until Thursday. I saw their 14" bandsaw is down from $995 to $695.
  2. I haven't had a chance to watch the video yet but wanted to comment they still do the pledge in school and the Smithsonian does still have the flag and it is massive in person.
  3. Thanks! She wanted it to match the side table to the left of her bed and after she redid her flooring changed her mind on the color. Felt wrong staining cherry black but it ended up an almost perfect match. I followed Matt Cremona's finishing process and soaked the rag in mineral spirits before the last coat of ArmRSeal and was amazed at how nice it came out. Glad I got to test that out and will use it on my TV stand.
  4. Finally finished this bed frame and for it installed. Nice to have the job done and I’m looking forward to cleaning my shop up and getting back to work on my TV stand soon.
  5. I'll refrain from posting any pictures so no-one gets sick on their keyboard. I saw this last year and was amazed at how deep this guy went down the rabbit hole. Here's the hour long video if you want more detail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4b2IOOhJmxw&ab_channel=kenfritz
  6. I'm so glad I don't have a friend with a nice home theater. It allows me to enjoy our projector on a painted wall and piecemeal audio. I did pick up a matching center/surround speakers as my L/R which made a big difference. Going from the 720 projector to a 1080 was nice. I think up next will be a cheap screen. My office setup uses the receiver my uncle gave me in the late 90s when it blew a fuse.
  7. It's right next to where we go buy bulk food every 4-6 weeks too so those could be expensive weekends. Just got back from my youngest's "graduation" from preschool. Some of that savings might be diverted to Rockler...
  8. Looks like you'll be busy for a while! Our first ever Rockler opened up this week. I might have to make up an excuse to go out that way soon to check it out.
  9. They really move kitchen cabinets between places? I had no idea! Our Ikea dressers and night stands are holding up pretty well for 10+ years old. There are some scratches on the top but that's my wife's doing...
  10. I'll have to look into that and watch Cremona's video. We don't have any land to plant a tree but I've been contemplating transplanting some of the little oak trees on our community property since they just keep cutting them down and not replanting. I think the tubes would alert them to my activities though. It's crazy to see all the leaves in the tube too.
  11. I think some of the bad rap Ikea gets is from furniture being moved a lot. When you're moving apartments once a year how long can you reasonably expect a $40 bookshelf to hold up? I hadn't thought of buying an Ikea chair and using it as a template. Will have to remember that whenever the time comes to build some chairs.
  12. Parts diagram: https://www.ereplacementparts.com/ryobi-ap12-planer-parts-c-7931_7939_16412.html Seems like this issue goes way back: Link to the AP-10 manual: http://attometer.com/pdf/Ryobi planer AP-10 manual.pdf AP-12: https://www.woodworkingtalk.com/attachments/scanrouter-ttigroupna-com_20150507_090758-pdf.364664/ That last link was post #20 here: https://www.woodworkingtalk.com/threads/ryobi-ap-12-planer-new-guy.25538/
  13. We have those but shorter and deeper with 4 slots. My grandfather made them for his grandkids and now my dad and I have made a bunch over the years. He just showed me his latest batch yesterday.
  14. I need to get the Sketchup Course before it’s over.
  15. Is your driveway at the end of a rainbow or something?
