  2. Does anyone have recommendations for breaking down 4’ x 8’ sheet goods easily? Maybe plans to make a jig to simplify this task or a tool purchase? Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  9. Forgot about doing this the other day. Did it last winter with mainly scraps I had laying around my shop. Only thing I actually bought for especially for it was the gray paint.
  10. Not yet on business side. Hopefully soon. Still having surgeries and other things going on. Getting ready to go back to Hines in February for a month for refresher course. Then in next few months I’ll start the fun of surgeries to hopefully implant teeth back in my mouth. It’s kind of argument between doctors one it can be done other says no. I say let’s stop arguing and find out. And I’m going sling again in March at Winter Sports Clinic in Colorado. Other than that just going back forth to doctors and spending time with my soon to be teenage daughter.

  12. Court land I live in a small town of 2900. My mom lives with me at the time. I have 10% vision left in my right eye only. The rest of my family have their lives going on. My brothers have kids they wanna have me watch all the time . So I think after all my surgeries I'm going to move to somewhere further away . My mom will probably come with me because she is worrisome. But eventually she get her own place. Not that I don't enjoy having my other family around but I'm not a free baby sitter. I just want to do some woodworking in my own shop at my own pace and enjoy what I do. I've been thinking
  13. Ron I may be able to make it 20 inches but it will be a tight squeeze though one doorway. I also may make a little site as well. We we thinking about Cape Coral Florda or somwhere abouts . May just end up being somewhere else in a larger city in Missouri but I'm pushing for elsewhere.
  14. Lew it's going to be up against a wall in her room. The reasoning I say I'm thinking on making this entertament center is because after all my surgeries I'm going to move away to a different location in the United States. So if I build it I want it to be able to come with. She is the kind of child who is going to climb on things but her cousins in the other hand are . So I may have to make a shorter one or maybe mount the tv to wall or something of that nature.
  15. I've been thinking about making a entertainment center for my 8 yr old daughter room. Right now the tv is on an old dresser and a flimsy bookcase was supposed to be for DVDs and books but it has became her catch all location . I don't have the best vision in the world so I don't like stepping on things and she leaves things everywhere in her room. Well enough rambling on bout that. What I like to know if I make the bottom of the entertainment center 18 inches wide and it will be 4 foot tall or so and it will be 4 to 6 feet long. Will it be stable and not fall over. It will also be sitting on
  16. Thank you everyone for all the help. People kept telling to find paraffin wax but when looking it up I either couldn't find it or it cost an arm and a leg.
