Got a few heavy pieces of furniture to move from house to a friend's camp (another one than I one we recently re-roofed) then help her turned her garage into living quarters, as per the county's inspection reports.
Nothing too big, but i'll keep me busy for a while :-)
Me working hard at the camp :-)
My friend has a shed there, but the darn squirrels keep chewing the power cord for the electric mower. Right at the plug, does not leave me much room to reconnect the wires!! I just happened to own the same mower, so I could test it on mine.
I fixed the electrical connections, tested it, then Heather
did her magic with Sugru.
It is a malleable glue that turn into rubber once fully dried (24 hrs).
She bought it to fix the upper dishwasher rack, worked like a charm...
So I thought I should see what I could start in the shop, while I gather my tools for the upcoming tasks.
That saw till, still need three drawers to finished it. Currently I put in stuff I foresee in those future drawers;
Saw sets, saw wrests .
Small jeweler saws, pad saws.
Bird mouth for the fret saw, miter guide for
razor saw, small metal saw,
OK, so maybe I could scrounge the wood for those drawers with leftover currently in the shop?
Somewhere in there, must be stuff I could uses?
That look promising...
Darn, I forgot about those dadoes, nothing
for me to use in that piece!
Small pieces are easy to secure for ripping.
That Disston 26 in D8 is really a ripping machine.
A well sharpened and tuned saw is a joy to uses...
Not bad, not perfect 90, but darn close.
The set is starting to wear a smidgen more on one side, that and/or,
my wrist is slightly cocked.
The surface left is pretty good too, for a fast 4.5 TPI saw plate!
Next one up is the Disston 24in D12, Crosscut 10TPI.
6 side pieces and three back pieces, rough sized.
Now I need to figured out the front pieces. I have some left over Black American walnut, but I would have to resaw it thinner in order to do all three faces.
Besides I have lots of veneer, in prevision of doing some
repair works on sewing machine cabinets :-)
Not sure yet what I would use for the front, but I want to do something special, just for fun...
To be continued.... "-)
