  1. I keep my work email open on my IPad and have that on the garage so I can monitor my work email.
  2. Now my plywood supply is restocked also....
  3. As of this coming Monday I have been told to work from home until further notice. Work is slow so I am sure i am going to have lots of spare time while I am "working" that i might spend some of it in the garage. Yesterday I purchase a 2"x9"x8' piece of birch yesterday for a project I am working on. I only needed 1/4 of it but I figure what the heck and bought the whole thing to have some extra wood to play with. I also got some free 1"X4" oaks shorts. All are around 3'-4' long. Today I am going to go pick up 3-4 sheet of plywood and some 2X4's for some shop organization projects. This should keep me busy or a while..... Jeremy
  4. I just finished replacing the knives on my vintage Crasftman jointer and ran some test paces on a piece of birch I had. This is what the chips I am getting looks like taking a light pass. I has been 25+ years since I have used a jointer. Do these chip look like what you would expect to see? There is also a picture of finish of the board. Jeremy
  5. And it gives me good reasons to buy new tools....
  6. Last February I build my wife a new sewing table. I took me about 3 weeks to build. It was made from pre-finished Birch plywood. all of the edges where banded with iron on birch edge banding except the top. the top was not banded so the edge could be round over an sanded to 800 grit to prevent them from snagging on the fabric. the biggest challenge was building it so it can be taken apart to get it in to the room and out again when we move.. Some of the features. on casters for easy movement 3 position sewing machine lift A/C & USB power on the top 15" full length flip up top extension on the out feed side of the top slide out tread organizer 18" X 18" front extension wing 4 storage drawer storage for the front extension wing and and her acrylic Steady Sew extension table. This weekend I built her an new cabinet for her serger to match he sewing table. This one is also pre-finished birch plywood but his time I mad 1/4 solid birch edge molding. Some of the features: Machine lift - This one is actually a mixer lift for ta kitchen cabinet. 2 -16" flip up side wings. 2 adjustable shelves. Both haves of the cabinet are the same size so I drilled shelf pin location and pilot holes for the lift in both side in case she ever want to switch it around.
  7. I use Maxcut. It allows you to add tell it what grain direction you want the part to have. You can enter different material sizes and then when you enter the part you can assign that material to the part. There are multiple option to on how it optimizes. You can tell it to prioritize rip cuts or cross cut or best yield. It takes some time to figure out but one you do It works great. You can also set your saw kerf size. https://www.maxcutsoftware.com/
  8. "Very cool idea with the "cabinet" on the right side for bulky items." It actually worked out that way by accident. I had planned on putting shelves in there but the coping sled fit in there perfectly so I changed my plans. Putting the box joint fixture base on the door was a last minute addition. It just happen to fit....
  9. Here is the finished product. Just need to cut the drawer face for the bottom drawer.
  10. That is where the blower motor is housed. The outlet is 8.5x8.5. The overall blower motor is 10"WX20-1/2"TX16"D. As you can see it fills up most of the space.
  11. I had to revise my design when I realize the blower cage inlet was on the right side...
  12. My next project will be a air filter cart. I have 3 speed furnace blower I am going to put into a cabinet. There will be (2) 16X20 & (1) 20X20 external filters and (1) 20X20 internal filter to double filter the air. To get it to the height I want I will put a couple drawer above the filter for extra storage. I have 2 slightly different designs and i cannot decide which I like better. One I think looks better and the other has bigger drawer for more storage.
  13. I am a Lewis Hamilton fan. I have followed him since his rookie year. I have been an F1 fan for many years. I wish they would go back to refueling. It think it mixed the field up much better the today. I am also a big fan of LeClerc. He really seems to be the most talented of the young drivers. Not a fan of Max. To much of a hot head. I am using Youtube TV. The races are on ESPN, ESPN2 & ABC this year.

  14. Drawer built and hung. This one is glued a screwed since it has to carry the weight of the extra routers. I just need to cut the face next time I have the 3/4 plywood out.
  15. I find I don't really watch it unless I am taking a break. I listen to it or I listen to music. It is just white noise for me. Jeremy
