  1. Watched it and was a great tribute. Confirmed my thought that he was a great carpenter, but a learning furniture maker (New Yankee Workshop). I found that his early woodworking was contrary to the little bit I'd learned up to that point.
  2. Sorry, but "know it alls" are the one personality that really irritates me.
  3. Had some HS students at the furniture bank this morning. We knocked out 34 tables in 3 hours. I also repaired a couple of pieces. Ran out this afternoon to get a plant for the front garden and got it planted. In the process, I dug up some daffodil bulbs and ended up replanting them and a few others that were leftover.
  4. so, what exactly is the difference between drilling a hole and predrilling a hole?

  7. Stumpy Nubs had a design with a HF tool a few years ago. This architecture just seemed a bit neater. I tried making a plunge router jig a few weeks ago but did not get the slot parallel to the fence so trashed it.
  8. Yes, my inner scam bells were going off, but just wondered. Thanks, all.

    Hurricane Ian

    We lost power and internet for about 4 hours yesterday. Some of the neighbors were bitching about it on social media. It was caused when a USPS van was hit by a vehicle going full speed and drove it into the utility pole. Letter carrier was air-lifted. People in FL have a foot of rain, 12 foot storm surges, damaged property and lost power. I'm feeling blessed. Well, I did have one flashlight that didn't work and now I have to reset a bunch of clocks.
