  1. It's definitely a tool that isn't needed but very helpful and time saving. There are still plenty of times were I will make traditional mortise and tenons (like on my dresser build). It helped a lot in panel glue ups I did previously. So I am looking forward to that. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  2. [emoji1787]. Some type of joinery machine [emoji848] Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  3. Uh oh Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  4. New garage fan from Menards. Very powerful. I put it on low and still feel it across the garage. Already been using it during my hand planing. [emoji23] Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  5. I saw you had gotten one. Haven't had a chance to use mine yet. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  6. Got 2 more 12" Yost parallel clamps and a drill press spindle sanding kit. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  7. Got the rockler dust right expandable hose a d dust right fittings. Should make going from one machine to another easier. Also got a dfm tool works dowel plate. I've actually used dowels in quite a bit of my projects. Will be nice to use wood that matches. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  8. My friend gave me a duplicate tenoning jig that he had. Perfect timing for this dresser build I'm doing. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  9. Picked up a stahwhille tool box from a KC tool deal of the day last month. Also got a set of wera chisel drivers. Both of these will be dedicated to the model A when I get it later this month. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  10. Ordered the Incra aluminum router plate with mag lock rings. Seems nice and heavy duty. Also ordered a template to make my life easy. I thought I was going to have to drill a hole for the above table adjustment but I guess not. The only issue is that it is on the back right and not the front lest like the kreg plate. This rotates the router. If I don't like it this way I'll rotate it and drill a hole where it won't be so close to the fence. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  11. I've been contemplating buying this. Since I am getting a 1931 Ford model AA I'll need to grease the fittings a lot. I don't have any DeWalt tools though. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  12. The storage bed is finally finished and my 4 year old loves it. I originally planned to get it finished last month but some shop upgrades slowed the build down a little. The rear drawers will be used for long term storage. The bed completes the set for my son. The set consisted of a bed, chest of drawers, night stand, and hamper. Instead of using drawer pulls on the drawers I routed in a handle pull like on the hamper. This does two things. 1. It ties the hamper and bed together and 2. It keeps my kids from ripping the handles off, skinning their shins, or using them as steps. Overall I'm happy with how the bed turned out. The drawers slide easily and my son can get in and out without much issue. He will hit a growth spurt shortly I'm sure anyways. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  13. I was thinking 15mm after I posted. Thanks for the clarification! [emoji106] Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  14. I might be wrong but I think mft tables use a different size dog hole, 5/8" maybe, most are 3/4" dog holes. So keep that in mind if you make the dog holes in your bench. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  15. First coat of General Finishes Enduro var is on. I used my Fuji semi pro 2 to spray it. I have never used this finish before and this is my second project using the sprayer so I actually went over everything with a foam brush. I left the parts that wouldn't be seen with a spray finish only. I'll compare and see if the brush is needed. so far so good. Here is a pic of the headboard. I ended up doing the head boards and foot boards by hand only. No room left in the spray booth. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  16. 3/4 of my Instagram giveaway came in today and I got more than I thought! I was supposed to get 2 24" and 2 48" clamps. I stead I got 4 of each! The other package of 48" clamps decided to stay in Chicago a little longer apparently. Thanks Jet and William Patrick Customs!! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  17. Follow up to a previous post of mine. I got the colliflower zero clearance insert in. Very nice piece [emoji108] Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  18. Drawers are done with sanding. I planed the face frame to the pillars of the head and foot boards. Up next is to sand the everything. I also made some much needed f style clamp racks. The larger ones were in my parallel clamp rack and it wasn't designed for them. I am getting more clamps thanks to William Patrick customs via Instagram I won some jet parallel clamps. So these needed a new home. Not all of my smaller clamps are in the rack as they are currently being used. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  19. Drawers are all fit and and am currently sanding them. I did a partial sand after doing the rough plane so this won't take too long. I will need to plane the face frame to the posts and sand them as well. My plan is to put a coat of finish on Monday night. Rubbed one of the faces with mineral spirits to get a glimpse of the walnut awesomeness. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  20. I have a 240v heater attached to my ceiling. One of our officers is an electrician so he hardwired it for me. Works pretty well. King model I got from Menards. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  21. Currently I am fitting the drawers to the frame. I made runners and slides on the table saw. I had to build up pieces in the frame to accept the runners. To flush up the box joints I used my hand planes to plane the fronts and sides. They are currently "rough" planed. That is they are all smooth but not flush to the frame. I will go over them again once all of the runners are in and glued and plane the faces flush to the frame and plane the sides, top, and bottoms to give an even reveal.

  22. With the frame parts essentially done it was time for the drawers. I got the continuous grain pattern I wanted and mapped out the box joints I wanted. I cut the box joints on the band saw. Somehow I messed up on the second set and cut on the wrong side of the line....for all of the drawers. Luckily when I trimmed the drawers to fit I had slivers of the walnut. I sanded them down on the drum sander and cut small pieces for patches. This turned out pretty well. Not perfect but these will be at shin level and no one will know. After getting the drawer glued together #clampchamp I made a jig to router out a handle Instead of using a metal handle. I figured a handle that stuck out would hit a shin or get damages when used as a step. The routed out handle matches the handle I made for the hamper I made so it ties all of the pieces together.

  24. For those that don't follow me on Instagram...why not? My name is @r2_woodworking. I have been building a storage bed to match the modern chest of drawers and night stand that I built for my oldest son. This build has taken longer than I wanted due to holidays, weather, new shop upgrades, and broken garage heater. I am finally on the home stretch. Here is what has happened do far. I wasn't able to find plans online for what I wanted so I got dimensions from an Ana white plan and heavily modified them to fit my needs. The frame is cherry with the panels being air dried walnut. These panels are not resawn and are different boards but almost have a resawn look to them. The head and foot boards were put together with Domino's. Grooves we're cut with a router table for the panels. Next was to make the boxes for the bed to sit on to and the drawers to go in. Plywood and pocket holes fit this need perfectly. The drawers will be flush with the frame so I had to make a face frame. The top of the face frame will hold the bed in. Pocket holes were used again to make the frame and attach it to the boxes. The boxes are essentially the frame and need to sit on something to distribute the weight of the bed. I made the kick out of cherry to keep it all matching. Pocket holes again hid all of the attachment points. The head and foot boards will hide the butt joints. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  25. Thanks. I know I will enjoy using it. I have the mirka pads in the 5" and planned to get them again as I can get them locally. I thought of trying out klingspor paper. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
