    Not April Fools - Playing Card Holder for Dad

    Nice! I haven't played that game for a hundred years. I wonder if I could get my son interested in that.

    Workbenches

    Hi Ken, Ah, Philip Lowe's bench. That would be a good one for a smaller shop. You could easily modify it to have a more traditional top like this.

    The percentages are low but it would be interesting to have a picture of how those cases were acquired.

    corona virus comment

    We're up to about 20 confirmed cases in our county I think. It would be nice if they could get a handle on how these people got it. I get the patient privacy thing but it would be nice to know if there are places we have to avoid. Places that we have to go like the grocery store for food.

    Ken, are you referring to the one with the open base? Thanks you.

    Workbenches

    Ryan, I only modeled them the way the authors built them. Being left handed I've often wondered if it would make sense for me to reverse the bench and put the vises on the opposite ends. I probably would just leave them as in the original design, though.

    Workbenches

    Thanks Vaughn. Sounds like you have some good stuff to do. I keep thinking I need to go out and do some cleaning in my shop. Then I start wondering about making stupid videos from my old SketchUp models. :D

    Workbenches

    So I was just amusing myself this morning and did this. If you need something to while away a couple of minutes, click on the picture. ;)

    Workbenches

    You're right, Ryan. There are sorts of features one can add to a workbench. I imagine if I was going to build one right now, I'd work with these designs and others and make a sort of amalgam of them.

    Workbenches

    I was killing some time this morning while I was waiting for the family to get up and pulled together a bunch of the workbenches I've modeled over the years. These were all done for plans for Fine Woodworking Magazine. I didn't bother getting the others involved. I've always thought I should...

    corona virus comment

    Well, it took a while but I finally got the results back. Fortunately they were negative but that makes me wonder what I do have instead. I'd like to have a donut but that's not likely. :( Noises about vaccines sounds promising but I would expect availability to the general public is a long way...

    Thanks all. I hope it's just a cold, too, but so far it's been different than the usual cold. Fingers crossed. I am worried about the folks around at my favorite local pub and such.

    I'm "retired" meaning I've been working from home via my computer for over two years. About the only thing I've been doing outside the house is the robotics thing (which after tonight is on hiatus at least into April) but I seem to have some symptoms so I went to get screened today. Mayo Clinic...

    Auto Width Dado Jig 2.0

    Nice jig, Glenn. Rennie, there are router bits that are undersized for cutting dadoes in plywood. I imagine that plywood thickness these days is somewhat variable depending on the source.

    Fusion 360

    Leo, you are correct. SketchUp is not a parametric modeler. I've never found that to be a big issue but I know for some it does seem to be. I've been slowly learning OnShape because that's what the robotics team uses. I find it rather backward in the way it works. Seems you have to know and...

    Mirroring Parts?

    Indeed, there are times the Scale tool is a good choice, too.
