that chip is the least of your worries. You might want to just take a hammer to it now and get past any future emotional anguish caused by dings. LOL.

This a nice miter station. I've had a few miter stations over the years and I hate to break it to you, but that chip is the least of your worries. You might want to just take a hammer to it now and get past any future emotional anguish caused by dings. LOL.

Especially with me. Destruction follows me wherever I go. I'll probably get this door finished and put on and accidentally drive through the shop with my car and destroy the miter station completely.

Awe don't even joke about taht. It'd be tragic to ruin that awesome miter station with a car.... Though don't you drive a prius and didn't those cars have problems with the accelerator sticking :P:D 

Walnut is pretty hard it should handle the knocks and bangs of a shop just fine. If anything embrace the character that the wear adds.

I think it's likely my prius would bounce off of the miter station. :)

Since I wasn't going for furniture level on this, there are plenty of flaws already, ad I'm good with it. Just the top itself, I had to hand plane the trim down and it tore out everywhere. And when I attempted to sand it it scuffed the hell out of the hardboard top. So I left it looking chewed up and counted it as a learning opportunity to never cut my trim oversize by 1/4"

that's a great piece Cliff, well done sir! i wouldn't have even noticed if you hadn't mentioned the scuffing and tear out, if anyone mentioned it i would show them the door and tell them to make one as nice, and I'm betting they couldn't do it on their best day.

I'm still in the phase when I am compelled to show the flaws in my work. Trying to get past it.

I highlight flaws if i show a way to solve the problem. Between us on here is different than the non-woodworking types. I don't talk about flaws with them any more. I got sick of getting that blank stare and the comment "This is far better than i could have ever done".

Boy golly that door panel is purdy!!!!!!! :wub:

I do believe that the maker of a piece is always going to find some flaws in his or her own work.  

I'm honest with myself about these flaws....  But I'm not doing everybody else's work for them.  ;)
