  1. Hey Ron, great to see ya here again sir!
  2. Rest in peace sir, may you join all the old buddies you lost that day of infamy! WWII veteran, thought to be oldest survivor of Pearl Harbor attack, dies at 103 WWW.MSN.COM Clayton Schenkelberg and his brother Jerry were stationed at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, when Japanese fighter bombers struck.
  3. I agree Gene, we are only dealing with a drawer face here, it's certainly is not going to move side to side since the grain would be orientated horizontally, any movement would be at the top or bottom edge of the face, and even at that, probably not much if any. Now if Al were building a full width drawer case with face dovetailed in, then ya got other considerations to be aware of, such as the bottom of the drawer can move a lot and effect the gaps all around, withing the case, and at the face frame.
  4. One thing us west folks don't worry much if at all about, is swelling, unless you live in the beach areas. But for the rest of us, you can cut those tolerances really tight. That being said, if we build something that is going out of the shop into someone else's home, I'd treat it like it's going to the southeast or any place that changes climate drastically from season to season, because you never know where that piece is going to end up after it leaves our shop. It may stay in California for a few years, then the family gets a job in Alabama, and picks up and leaves and that cabinet you buil
  5. Lew, completely grateful for the thoughtful effort you put into these Wed topics, it's incredible. You are one of the OG's around here, and you just keep giving and giving in the way of time and experience and commentary, you are a highly valued asset around here, thanks Lew!
  6. The home is just starting to get back to normal Lew, slowly but surely.
  7. Just how I left my shop Easter weekend, mama came down with Covid Easter night, barely stepped foot in shop since, I'm tooling around now in the shop, kind of enjoying myself, the last 5 weeks has been all about others, I'm just standing here in the middle of the garage, thanking God I still have my wife, and my son roared back to health too. And the shop is here, waiting for me.
  8. I'd like to thank the folks who have come to the table thus far! Thank you for your contributions and we wish you the best of luck in the drawing!
  9. I was talking about the DriftMaster, so it's no longer in stock, hmmm. Perhaps they found that the factory fence that comes with the bandsaw is more than capable, as you said it can be used in a hi low config. Thanks for the update Tom.
  10. Remember Larry, hang overs over the age of 50 don't go away for a loooooong time!
  11. @Masonsailor, I was perusing your reply with all the images backwards, I started from the bottom up, and I was thinking the whole time, man this guys is a long way from earth!!
  12. My cousin has a Laguna just like yours Tom, and he loves it. It is a beast, all the castings he stated are good and heavy, and the machine is precise. Hey Tom, now you need to look at the Laguna Resaw Fence! Later, but if you want to resaw, it's a great addition. Cheers, and so glad you are happy with it!
