OK, Gin & Tonic to oust Uncle Charles from the back of my legs...

 

Daughter stopped by, showed her the wire baskets....and found out what baskets  she really wanted.    The two wire ones will go into the drawer, that I NOW get to build,  all else the same as the one of Ash.....just made of Paint-grade Pine, now....

 

Not enough in the weekend's budget to go out and buy a load of pine....soooo..

 

I may do a little something with that  stack of left-over Ash.....and post a build along for that...

OK, have a shopping list made out...getting set to go buy a few boards.....shopping list so I don't wind up a board short, somewhere...

 

My son is footing the lumber bill, too.     Will report when I get the stuff to the shop...

 

3/4" plywood shelves are not on the list....will make two more webframes, and add a layer of 1/4" Luann to the topside....May need a center rail....

Got over to Sidney, OH a bit late....Lowes was closed.   Menard's had the same 1/4" plywood...$0.40 more.....will save a second trip tomorrow, in gas and time.

 

Sorted through the piles in the racks.....pick of the litter?   Meh..good thing this will be painted..sheesh  Their Premium brand was a tad too much in price...cost more than the Ash I bought!    The boards will take a bit of selective cutting....and no small amount of work.  

 

Letting the boards just sit in the house for a day or three....

 

I did find a 1 x 6 x 8' with Birdseye figure.....maybe a drawer front or two?

A herd of 1 x 2s

Are they a herd or are they a gaggle? I get confused.:lol:

Maybe some smaller stuff?  Runs great.  Mitre gauge is sitting like that, because I merely sat it down, to keep it with the saw.

Got one pretty much like that. Craftsman 10" right? It was my first band-saw...bought it at a yard sale along with a stand and Craftsman 6", 4x36 sander all for $75. When I get to do things, I still use it frequently.

Good little band-saw, just limited on re-saw width. IMO. My miter gauge is a little different but not sure it's the original...that and it's currently set at 90o:P

Obviously Shop-cat was bored and looking for somewhere to curl up.:D

Hope things went OK at the VA!

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.
