I already asked my buddy that was here this morning, if he knows anyone around, a contractor, or a cabinet maker that would let me rent some time or me pay them to joint a few pieces of wood now and then.
Im sorry about the complaining.
Its looking at the amazing work here, that drives me foward.
I had a talk with the wood today() and told it flat out if it doesnt start cooperating with me right now, its going to be heating someones home shortly.
I recut, yes, I must have recut 1/8th off this wood 27 times, but I got a glueable edge finally, with a touch of very light sanding to get out 4 or 5 burn marks.
Only time will tell.
I only have to glue up the two pieces now.I glued the 2 pieces today to one of the other glueups.
I did not cut the final two 3.5 inch, I just left them at 6 and 5 inches approx since I needed to make a final width of or near 40 inches(whether Im an inch or 1.5 inch narrower, will not make any difference, the client is easy)
with everything in the middle of the garage, and everything out, its very time consuming to have to shift from one operation to another. I dont have table space to just put everything on, so its a constant shift of everything, and I try to plan 4-5 steps in front so I only have to move stuff around minimal times.
This cuts my actual work time a couple of hours each day I devote to woodworking. That and cleanup, which I have to do a little every day to keep the garage in breathable condition.
