    Yup, my SIL works for the company that owns and manufactures for the Over Head Door Co...she gets a pretty good discount. Still out of the budget right now, but if the funds become available, I'll be upgrading.

    Important update...not as important as the beverage container will be, but has been cold enough out there I haven't needed one yet. I put some of that photo paper to use that Tom Niemi gave out a while back...Thanks again Tom!

    Ok now you need high security alarm system. I am on my way to KC to get that paint book. You been holding out on us not declaring your cowboy ways eh? Cool signs. Now i think of it my shop really could do with some wall decorations. Not wall much space left in my office.

    Very cool signs there Darren. Excellent use of that paper.

    Rob, I found that sign at the local Re-Store for $5 about 2 years ago. A local Steak house had done a remodel and they had donated probably 200 different cowboy pictures/posters, not to mention cowboy/farm items laying around for sale. I had called my sister, she has a log cabin and it was right up her alley too. Will definitely keep you in mind if I come across another gold mine like that again.

    Spent the last couple of nights doing some clean-up and getting things out of boxes that I haven't seen in about 2.5 years now, found my shop aprons and welding shirt finally! Put some leg extensions on one of our folding tables to use for a temp bench for now.

    Is this the sequel to Homer's Odyssey? It has as many interesting "moments." However a bit different than Homer's.

    Thanks for the trip.

    Enjoy,

    I was cleaning up behind the office and found enough materials to start my outfeed table/bench yesterday. I cut the dado's on the radial arm and chiseled them out, then assembled each side using 3" screws.

    I used a 3/4" plywood for the top, which will have 1/4" hardboard over it and a hardwood edge.

    The stretcher is temporary, didn't have enough material to finish framing for the lower shelf, but it will be tall enough to store some of my rubbermaid tubs that I store hardware and fasteners in.

    Also temporarily installed the Bessey vice I've had for a while.

    I had an outfeed table once. Problem is that it always ended up stacked with "stuff". Enough, that I was constantly clearing it in order to run the table saw. Now I just use a roller stand that I move in place when needed. Good luck with yours!

    Yeah, that thought had crossed my mind. I have the feeling that I'll have to move it down the road and go back to using my roller, we'll see though.
