    1000 mile move, new world. Old guys take everything with them! Same size shop, new state, seems I have less room. Must've picked something up during one of the 6 , 2000 mile round trips last summer. Man, what a move. Little pressure washing and a chain saw, looks better. Ran a lot if conduit, air lines, paint, clean, seal, ... and, ran out of money till I can save up for full led lighting.

    @kornomaniac....as I've said a million times, I run 3 framing crews ..one trailer is all Makita, one all Dewalt ( mine) , one all Milwaukee....not my decision,the owners chose the brands ...they all have the latest tools available. I'm not bias ,...most guys on here are DIY or shop guys, not building custom homes 6 days a week in all weather, it's different and more demanding... I comment on what I see and use at work everyday...I buy all the tools and service all the tools, and use all the tools..so I have a very good idea on how they all perform framing... What's not cool is the belittling that happens when a comment is made you don't like..I don't disrespect anyone on here, they are all just personal opinions. As far as dewalt goes,ya no company matches flexvolt ,circ saws, rear handle saws,table saw, and mitre saws...cordless nailers also...they are very durable , powerful tools....... Milwaukee.makes awesome plumbing, HVAC , mechanic tools...small and powerful, generally better then DeWalts equivalent...but they don't match up with framing tools...or cordless nailers and they thermal overload a lot...even the new drill that beats my 997 ,heats up ( read reviews) but I .love M12 line... Makita makes finesse tools, generally not as powerful as Dewalt or Milwaukee...cool features , great tools but not great to frame with..... These are opinions based on daily use....if your not familiar with ..LVL,PT, engineered lumber,IPE, timbers, etc...these are what we cut ,rip, saw.drill,screw etc...not a 2x4 in a garage video... If I'm a shop guy,I'd be all Festool....

    Can't wait for him to cut two or three pieces of wood and tell us how amazing it is.

    The deWalt is the ' roughest' track saw you can have. Shitty handle, shitty counter intuitive plunge action, not even a positive stop at 45°. It's almost a spring loaded circular saw that happens to be able to run on a track

    I’m curious, have you ever had a Dewalt tool that didn’t outperform every other tool on the planet?

    More progress today and a setback at the same time. I did a dry fit of the pieces again and realized I didn't route out the dado for the top panels. I'll need to set the router table back up and do that. I did manage to make the jig for the router to route out the spaces for the web frames to insert into. Next I started to work on making the panels. The walnut was all the at the bottom of the cherry pile so I had to dig them out. The plans call for 1/2" but my walnut is slightly over 1" now. With resawing, jointing, and sanding I believe I can get 3/8" and I'm fine with that. The boards I have are over 11" wide so to joint them I had to rip them down the center. This will give me an extra glue joint but it will be fine. Those two pieces got resawn and are currently in two sets of clamps. I'll run them through the drum sander to get them closer to equal thickness for the final glue up. Reason for me doing it this way is the bandsaw wasn't perfectly centered on the board so it would be hard to get cauls to work to keep one face flat of the other sides are not equal.

    Today I got the panel grooves cut for the nightstand. Tomorrow I'll get the chest of drawers done. Then make the jig to route out for the web frames to insert into the legs. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    @Mattias Blomqvist of course I'm team dewalt, being a framer....I have the dewalt "rocket" it works great, love it for night work.and early mornings.but it's large to store ...and not duel power. Dewalt has some new lights coming, we don't use " area lights" they suck..gotta be tripod.... As you know, dewalt has no 12v line really, so I'm in M12 and Bosch 10.8...the compact size of M12 drill and impact to have hanging off my tool belt is great...we use SS screws for all exterior trim... The M12 rocket is perfect to store under the back seat and especially useful being ..Duel Power....... I wish SBD would release more Dewalt cordless tools instead of 1200 craftsman tools....

    Agreed. I don’t make cabinets. But do lots of T1-11 on siding and gable ends. Subfloors and trimming down doors. FV is more than precise enough for what I use it for. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Second set of mortises cut. Up next is the grooves for the side panels and I have to make a jig to route out the mortises for the web frames. Into the legs. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    I've found the Makita to be far superior to the FlexVolt; it's also better than the festool cordless IMO; but the corded model is hard to beat.

    No shop time the past week. I had to help my mother move out of her house. I got half of the Domino's mortised out. Each joint still needs one more cut. I couldn't help myself and had to out it together to get the feel of the size of the pieces. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get the other mortises cut. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
