  1. The little darling can't fully realize the enormity of this table. Truly a legacy! Chet, I recall in this thread that there are more grandchildren? Even if they are adults I would invite each one to do a project. I personally would enjoy meeting your other grandchildren the same way in which I met your grand daughter here. On top of everything else, your presentation could not have been better! Thank you.
  2. There needs to be a picture of her and her helper near the table...Maybe a signing ceremony?
  3. Iowa? You don't know humidity like here in South Florida. Keep your tools together. It would drive me crazy looking around for a tool. All good ideas above. Wax is nice on the table saw and jointer and thickness planer.
  4. In the jewish religion God in English is G-d. So God can never be destroyed or erased. Either way works for me.
  5. There is a special thing going on here.It is a very rare moment when very young children can create something that must count as economic production. Creating something of economic value. And offer it to the family. When it is delivered I think it would add to the event to put a cash value to the table. It will let the child realize her productivity. Play it up when finished and delivered. A typical and easier way of accomplishing awareness of productivity is vegetable gardening. On the first occasion when Johnny puts carrots on the table, that first experience of being a provider, adding to the family will never be forgotten. Easier with vegetables than wood but creates the same wonderful magic. And the bonding. And there is a legacy that will last as long as the table. Sign it together. As time goes on, each time she sees the signatures it will bring back these wonderful moments forever. She will have a story to tell from now until forever. Well done Chet!
  6. How long ago was back then. I find that uncovered stuff from the past can become pleasant and fun conversation. You might let your daughter know what you heard on the grapevine. There might be a few laughs...
  7. Chet, you have a real woodworker there. And a cutie. Is this a generation skipping talent or do your children have the knack also?
  8. I'm blessed with good neighbors. We replace an old fence on the line we share. In a convenient out of the way spot, we installed a gate. A sign of a good neighbor is a gate in the fence that separates us. And you both use the gate. And he really got the knack to hold and receive on the jointer.
  9. I like the fence that comes with it. I was hanging some cabinet doors that required European hinges. What took me 20 minutes to set up for the required bore before now is 3 or 4 minutes.
  10. I have a long 8" delta that is long enough for me to do what's needed. On the rare occasion I cant manage alone, I have a well trained neighbor that I like better than my roller. I find the roller must be properly aligned to avoid pulling or pushing the wood away from the fence. For me the neighbor is the better tool than the roller.
  11. Door number 2. Number 1 had more flip stops than I needed. The table adds speed and accuracy to set ups.Well made too.
  12. I bought a 20" Jet from Home depot. It was $100 less due to promotion. This one The table is set up for metal work. So I added a woodpecker table. Worthwhile. Like most I never have enough room. The space under the drill press is space lost unless there is a cabinet in that place. Free real estate. In the event I need to lower the table real low, the cabinet slides out of the way. I installed some slippery plastic to the bottom of the cabinet to move if ever needed. I like the big motor. It won't bog down boring larger holes.
  13. I think a 2 x 6 on edge is stronger than same wood 4 x 4. Engineers or people that know, please chime in. Less wood than a 4 x 4 too.
  14. All good ideas. I'm sure there are many very good ways to build this. I have found a way, when needed to build outdoor tables or racks. For outdoor I use stainless steel screws and titebond 3. If needed to control rack corner brackets will do the trick. From my experiences I would start as the pic. I might replace the 2x4's with 2x6's
