    Never thought of letting it rest after milling. I have five boards glued up and they will sit for some time before I get around to the rest of them.

    Should I rip the rest, mill and let sit for a bit? Or glue then let sit for a bit?

    Honolulu,, Hi.

    Never thought of letting it rest after milling.

    I have not heard of that either,, I knew about getting your meat rest but now your wood too?? I do know it likes to move.

    Took a day to do absolutely nothing and play around on the

    This past week was the first week in a month I haven’t worked 50+ hours. Also got an unexpected $0.80 raise and change in job title(from recycling plant laborer to recycling plant operator.) No change in actual job although another guy and myself are both supposed to get trained on the skid-steer.

    yah depending on how it is cut, one side may be exposed to more moisture or have more moisture loss which will cause your wood to warp and distort, it happens quite often. Nothing you can do to prevent it.

    Started the top to my workbench, got about 40% of it done. That maple once cut down to size really wants to take its own shape. Lots of messing with the jointer then through the thickness planer. On a couple of them the NO.5 came out. The will be the last bench I build, that’s because it’s going to kill me.

    nice project you have going on there in your backyard. looking forward for the final product.

    Finished cutting and fastening the ceiling joists late yesterday after spending most of the day doing a late pool closing. I still need to do colar ties, but that should be pretty quick and I’ll leave for a rain day. Today, it’s outdoor soffit and roof trim work likely.

    Conventional wisdom says to rip and rough mill, then rest before final milling and glue up.

    I had some assembly difficulties because I waited too long from final milling to assembly in the legs for my bench.

    I didn’t have the time to wait, some pieces i managed to rest it before glue up, some pieces i just milled and straight up glued it asap.

    I spent the day running around buffalo hitting various shops but two of them stood out. I had never been in a rockler before and I am impressed with the various tools they have there. I also hit harbor freight, love that place just like a princess auto.

    Why wait to assemble? Never heard of deliberately doing that. It’s not a steak. That’s only asking for trouble. As long as the moisture content doesn’t read bad, just assemble. Even waiting overnite can be a problem I have found on some occasions.

    Mounted my 1619 router to the Freud table today. Not much clearance in the cutout!

    Played around with the plunge spring defeat feature a bit. It really is going to be simple to set depth and do the fine adjust once it’s mounted on the cabinet.

    Got the rest of the top milled today and glued, tomorrow I will glue the two top pieces together. Then I need to see if I can borrow a 6″ jointer/planer for the legs. The wood I have is just a bit too wide for my 4″ jointer/planer. That or borrow @r-ice‘s No.7 Plane and see if I can mill one side of the boards by hand.

    Great stuff! You are going to have to raise your prices.

    That will be a workout by hand. You won’t need the heat on. Got me itching to do some planing just hearing about it.

    Fits quite nicely. Is that going to be it’s permanent home?

    I spent an innordinate amount of time trying to clean a Festool tracksaw blade today, in the meantime I did a bunch of prep for tomorrow – provided it’s not raining – to use my shop based MFT on site via reattaching the legs and also assembled other tools needed for soffit work and got my cordless Bosch grinder I bought recently on clearance for the first time in an awkward situation where it will be much nicer to use than my corded one. Just abusy day getting organized for the next job.

    I work in progress from Sunday. A few more courses to go to make sure it’s 3 feet above any roof and add a cap. Should only be a few more hours next weekend.
