    One primer one coat I am thinking Gene. If it needs more I can paint in place. Leaks! Surely you jest! Appraiser is coming Tuesday. Not pictured, I just installed the Blum Tandems before I closed up shop, I wanted to get those in before the sink goes over the top, I'll install the vanity without doors and drawers, as long as it's functional we are good to go.

    If the appraiser asks, we won't tell. Sweet adaptation. That could be a song title. "Sweet adaptation, you make me smile... "Sweet adaptation, with just a router and a file... "No more worried stares... "No more sink hole scares... " It fits like a glove " Oh, how I love... " My sweet adaptations...

    Fixed! Put a straight edge up with a flush bit and took it down. Because of the router base I could not get all of it. I want it up to the line. So I sawed to the line and cleared it out. But it's still not enough. So I got the grinder and cut a chamfer into it and that gave me just enough.

    Road Trip!

    Took a day off from the shop today.....yard sales were a bust....too nice of a day to go into the shop....Hauled the Boss, and my son off on a Road Trip... Springfield, OH has an Antique Mall.....HUGE one.....8 big rooms of stuff....Number one rule...IF a tool is INSIDE a glass case...take a look, but keep on walking. There was this one stall.....looked like someone had emptied both a Sears and a woodcraft tool section, and just piled it up on a BUNCH of shelves....Dug through over 100+ chisels....looking for a couple wood handled ones I could use.. The wide one is 1-1/4", the other is 1/4"...$6 for the biggie, $1 for the wee one... Sharp? Not even close. But, we have ways... Hoops? Not sure IF I'd hit the little one....biggie has been hit a few times too many.. For $7 and change? I think I can make do....Walked around in the place for over 2 hours, and only saw about half of the stuff. Supper was at Five Guys Burgers.....then a nice drive home.....not too bad of a day...

    Thank you for the comments guys, they are very encouraging. We got a lot done today since this morning! I'm pooped! My goal was to paint tonight, but it'll have to happen in the morning, Mrs. Morris still needs to go out with the kids and pick up a quart. So I couldn't paint even if I wanted too, thank goodness!

    And a narrower drawer...or maybe a shorter side. BTDT. Client gave me the sink top specs, then she bought a different one. Change order!

    Road Trip!

    Nice finds especially the 1/4" one...looks like a mortise chisel? Apparently Springfield has this too...Springfield Antique Show & Flea Market Looks like that would be worth a trip sometime...little pricey on admission IMO for the May & September events, but I'm a cheapskate!

    See that pedal on the left? Ya gotta coordinate with the long one on the right whilst moving that stick with the knob in to the #1 position with your right hand. Ya gotta do that 5 more times in about 15 seconds, all while using the left hand to steer.....so PUT DOWN THE DAMNED DARNED PHONE.

    Looks like there might enough meat there to cut out a profile for the sink bowl and it will miss the drawer side. No one will see that design mod.

    Futile - that's how i read it out loud. as in, no matter what you do to this piece of wood, it's still going to do what it wants to do, so your efforts are Futile.

    This is what sold me on the tool was that the standard 30,60,45,90 degree angles are basically easy to set up accurately with squares ,triangles,and protractors, the odd angles become trial and error. Just .1 degree on a 11 sided polygon, (hendecagon) will give you a total error of 2.2 degree when assembled. Fer example I made a wooden bucket one time that was supposed to have 32 staves ( icosidodecagon ), when I went to assemble it the last stave was wide open on the last joint. By removing one stave it was perfect,so it ended up a 31 stave bucket (triacontakaihenagon) and only I knew the difference. But when I went to attach the bail, instead of being straight across it was one stave off. Herb

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
