    Whats on your Bench? - 3/10/07

    Almost forgot. Had an Inspection job yesterday and about the time I was finishing writing the report my UPS man dropped off a new/old project. I got excited and started working on it last night.

    So, sometime over the weekend take a photo of your bench or benches and show us "Whats on your Bench?" this weekend. Doesn't have to be exiciting. Big or small, just snap those photos and let's see your bench top this weekend.

    It's dovetail time. When I made my first test dovetails I kept the assembled test one with notes on it that remind me what not to do. In the right lower corner you can see a vac/tool switch (Woodcraft) that I have one of the routers plugged into. It turns on the vac when I am running the tool. I use that a lot more that I though that I would. It would be nice to have two tool plugins so that both routers would be ready to go without having to unplug and replug. I see that Sears has one so may give it a try. I guess that it would be cheaper to buy a plunin adapter.

    A new router table top. Last one sagged 1/16 in the middle, which of course ruined everything. Two pieces of 3/4 mdf laminated together, and it still sagged! Darn!

    I'm reinforcing this one with two long pieces of angle iron, and some rabbeted hardwood along both long edges. With my luck, it'll still sag, but maybe a little less...

    Oh, and I need to make an enclosure for the garbage cans. That one should be easy...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Eight doors for my guest room cabinets, to be sanded and try to get finished, a tray of pen blanks ready to get turned later today, and a stack of "stuff" that needs to be culled and either put away or tossed - LOML seems to dump everything on the bench just inside the door.
