    I Did Some Woodworking!

    It's been a long time but I actually made something. I've been so busy teaching SketchUp to woodworkers and doing drawings for others that I 've had little time to work in the shop.

    In preparation for the arrival of my new Router Boss*, I've built a wall mount for it. Got it put up this evening. Now, where's that guy in the brown truck?

    Just curious. Does it not mount the same way that the Woodrat does? I'm just wondering why your existing Rat mount couldn't be used? Cant wait to see you put the Boss thru it's paces and report back.

    Doug, I think it could mount on the old mount but my arms wouldn't be long enough to reach it if I did. The old mount is now near Milwaukee with the Rat which I gave to my brother.

    I'm looking forward to getting the Boss and putting it through its paces, too. I've drawn every single part of the thing so I feel like I already know it inside and out. I guess it is being shipped tomorrow morning.

    Quantum materiae materietur marmota monax si marmota monax materiam possit materiari?

    Um, I thought that was what the wood rat was for?

    Anyway, I was looking at one of them there router bosses, but it's out of my league. Congrats on the get! What's your first project?

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Bill, you're right.

    Out of your league? Nah, I don't think so. I think you'd find it incredibly useful.

    Art, sometimes this place seems like that bad place that isn't supposed to freeze over and it's bloody cold out there now.

    I think this will be the first project. And then a cheese straightener. that's what Ian wants to make for his grandmother. I'm still trying to find plans for that.

    What the heck is a cheese straightener? Has there been a breakout of Crooked Cheese Syndrome in your area?

    Your guess is as good as mine. When I suggested we make a cutting board for grandma, he told me she already has a "lemon cutter" but she needs a "cheese straightener."

    The kid is only 4 1/2. What am I going to do when he's 8 or 12 or 16?
