Thanks for the drywall tips everyone. You're making me want to buy a model but I feel like I have less time with all of this. Good luck cleaning Mark!

“Buy a model”...took me a minute.

Just got back from picking up a old, small Jet 1HP dust collector for $25. The woman left it out in her driveway so we could practice social distancing and was less then 7 miles from my house round trip. We may get together once this virus is over. Tomorrow my planer comes in. Now it's time to get a lot of work done so I can actually try out my tools tomorrow.

Bought a new trim router the Bosch cordless becuase well you can never have to many routers right :P

Used it enough to give a review? What model did you get? That sounds like it would be super useful to quickly do a round over with no cords in the way.

The Bosch Palm router, should be here in a week or two. I will let you know how I like it but like you  mentioned I think it will be nice for edge routing tasks.

We are under contract on a house, so today I’ve been making floor plans in acad so we can do some planning for furniture and some possible renovations. We have a few dimensions but I’m mostly working off of memory and pictures, so I’ll have to update them with true dimensions after I can take measurements.

You still going to be in Virginia, John?  I used to live in Culpepper.  Nice country, but some of the laws had me going a tad nuts.

To bad about the templates, ya just never know when you might make a buck or two from doing them for money.

I would’ve freaked out - I tend to keep everything, “just in case.”

Would a recomendation be in order?   Make the aprons shorter in order to get the splayed legs a little more under the table. Not much worse than tripping over a leg and complaining that I shoulda done it different.

That's definitely a good idea Rick. They're drawn in line with the edge of the table top but coming in a little won't hurt.
