    I did the final glue-up on the dog gate I've been working on all of January. Shop time has been hard to get this past month, so it was good to get to that milestone. Still have to sand, stain, finish, and hang it. (And go through a couple hundred pics to post a thread.) I'm ready to be done with flatwork for a while and get back on the lathe.

    Finished assembly; fit and adjusted drawers and top on a jewelry box I'm making for LOML. Pre-sanded parts to 220 before assembly, got a little glue clean up left to do, fit and finish shaping on curved parts, then final sand to 320 before finishing.

    I worked on putting my TS back together after moving all my tools and machines to my shop.

    Did a complete setup and tune up and prepared the saw for dust collection. Made a couple of new zero clearance inserts.

    Moved the fence over just like Glenn has his, (sweet) and tapped a number of 1/4 inch holes in the rail to mount the switch in a variety of positions until I find the "just right position".
    Also cleaned all the glue residue off the top and sanded it with 400 paper and put down a layer of boshield protection.

    Now shes is purring to go.

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    I shaped and mounted the inlay on a couple handles. I started some finish samples for the same pieces.

    I was had a successful weekend....if blowing up 2 bowls and spilling a entire new bottle of danish oil is considered a success.

    At least some of the snow melted.

    I didn't do too much this weekend. Just got a few hours in on Saturday sanding the primer on the doors and drawer fronts. Back at it today.
