Hey WoodDorking Mavens,
Actually got some woodworking done. Good news is I got paid for it.
Not so good news is I'd have rather been working on something for
SWIATAABOC. Oh well, gotta follow the money. Your comments welcome.
I think it looks pretty slick. In your "all done" shot, the table is still
in two pieces - is that how you left it? I thought after the first pic of
you cutting it in half you were gonna try to rejoin it with the length
Anyway, did you get to take home the 6 feet of the table you cut out??
The original table was in two pieces, so I actually took three feet
off of the middle of each half. It sits on three pedestals, with the
square ends merely butted up against one another. Some small steel
plates are to be screwed in from underneath to sort of hold the whole
Yup. Two sections - 3x5 feet.
Next project is a cherry fireplace mantle shelf for a friend.

That's some pretty wood. I keep looking at those tailess saws, but they
just don't seem to have the guts to do the job. I keep buying battery
things and swearing I'll never do it again, until the next, that is.
I'm curious too, Did you get to keep the off-cuts?

Got one of those cordless saws in the Milwaukee 18v kit. Seems to
work real fine (somewhat surprising as I had doubts about cordless
saws too), though I haven't Really tried to push it (like, by cutting
50 4x8 sheets of ply or sumptin'). The reciprocating saw tha came in
the kit handles tree branches right fine w/a pruning blade. I _think_
it woulda handled Paddy's table, based on my experiences w/the saw,
though, of course, I don't have all the data.

Ditto here. Hell, I'm even _painting_ all the wood in the kitchen and
living room. (stained wood deserves that, wot?)
The local Farmer's Supply has baltic birch for $16.95 a sheet so
I'm headed down there this morning. It'll be for some little wall
cabinets to get my planes within reach, finally.

That's cold, Greg. Very cold. (Wish I had beat you to it. :-)
I'm currently starting to wish I *wasn't* doing so much with wood
at present. After the xmas gift-making season, I'm way behind on a
hutch for SWMBO. (She needs it to store her camera equipment and
display photos. She's spent almost as much money on camera gear as I
have on tools. Sheesh. :-)
Then there's Valentine's Day coming up, so I need to get cranking
on that. Then there's our anniversary (the end of March), so I need
to be planning that. Top it off with a case of Galoot's shoulder
(feels sort of like a rotator cuff, probably caused from excessive
planing), and all things considered, I'd rather be fly-fishing. :-}
Just say (tmPL) I know ... whine, whine, whine.
you've got to be more than good enough with a plane by now to do your
hogging left handed and finishing right handed, would that ease the load -
or just give you "two" sore shoulders?

suggest buying a jointer and thicknesser... hehe)

Bite me, Greg. :-)
Naw, there's none of that in my future. I'll just take it easy and
tie flies or fish for a couple of days and then I'll be back at it. I
just have to be more careful in my old age. :-)
