    You’re famous (infamous?) here!
  3. Yeah I was being a wise guy. Where plywood has grain going left to right and also up and down, my dado was going both with the grain, and across the grain, thus being ??? I prefer dado cause only other woodworkers know what that is. Everyone kinda sorta knows what a groove is. The rabbets were easy, once I had the bit dialed in. Wondering how easy/difficult the glue-up is gonna be, needing to put pressure both left/right, top and bottom, and front and back. More learning!
  4. Easy to see why that’s an annual event for you, absolutely beautiful. Hope the two of ya’s are having a great time.
  5. So yesterday me Missus asked me to make a spice rack that can mount on the inside of the pots and pans cabinet door. I took some measurements, and lay it out in my head as I’m trying to sleep. Pretty basic, back piece, two sides, bottom, and a bar across the front the hold things in. I have never made/used a rabbet before and decide this will be a good project to learn on. I’m using 1/4 Baltic Birch. I get the 4 main pieces cut, and rabbeted. Everything fits like a dream, I’m pretty satisfied with myself. Only thing left to do before glue-up is to cut the dado/groove in the front of the 2 side pieces for the bar to go across the front and keep things from falling out. YUP, you guessed it, I got discombobulated and cut the dado/groove in the back of the 2 side pieces. I had already cleaned up and put away the router table (which I had gotten dialed in perfectly for the rabbets), so I called it a day. I must be getting mature, or at least older, cause I didn’t even throw anything . I will cut 1/4 inch off the back of the 2 sides, and rabbet the back again, and this time try to make sure I cut the dados/grooves in the FRONT of the pieces. So as to learn SOMETHING from this experience what is the proper name for the cut in the front of the 2 side pieces for the front bar? A dado goes across the grain, a groove goes with the grain, plywood is glued up perpendicular to each other, so is either name correct? Curious minds want to know (it may be a WEAK mind, but it is curious).
  6. Congrats! Great job! Welcome!

    How about we call this Caronavirus the Kung Flu?
  8. One of my Father’s favorite expressions was. “I guess you have to learn the hard way”. Pretty much the only way I learn. Show up, try to do whatever, start learning what doesn’t work.
  9. Looks like you could just mount that on a wall and call it performance art.

    Rolling pin

    Now in our household the # 1 use for a rolling pin is husband training, by the wife. This looks like it would be very adept at filling that role LOL. Good job.
  11. We will do our best to give you lots of adventures, for you to live vicariously through. Hope all goes well.
  12. Happy birthday, congratulations, and God bless.
