    I brought over the vanity I’ve been working on and got it installed in the airstream and put the counter top on. The family doesn’t have a sink yet, so I wasn’t able to cut the opening for it yet, but it’s in place and ready now for them to keep going on renovating that space.

    Charles my good man! That looks awesome! 👍👏☺

    Got more seat time on the tractor and the lawns rolled again. Hope to go out and put some work in on the Roubo after my coffee break, and a little guitar work this evening.

    I don't do a fast job. I don't do a slow job. I do a half fast job.

    Blue tape clamping to the rescue, as I glue on a piece live edge that came off while sanding.

    Started working on replacing a couple leg supports/foot rest on a bar type chair.

    Looks like a good job so far.

    Thanks. A work in progress.

    Sounds like you have you day planned out for you.

    Blue tape seems to do the job.

    I some times use alittle CA glue as my clamp until the wood glue dries.

    I don’t see too many wood chips or wood shavings laying around. LOL!!

    Very nice vanity fitted in that space. Do you have to go back to do the sink cutout or this is handled by the sink installer?

    They’ve been doing a bunch of renovating themselves – there’s noby else they’ve hired besides me so far, and I’m hoping they’ll call me back to install the sink once they figure out what one they want.

    @boschmanbrian thanks Brian

    I’m not paying for any advertising at the moment, so far word of mouth has been sufficiently keeping me busy – and I’ve got jobs lined up for the next few months now, so I’m pretty happy with that!

    @doobie thanks! I’m pretty happy with how it turned out 🙂

    I spent all today installing trim. I got about 120 LF installed, which probably isn’t great for anyone who does this regularly, but it felt like I was moving pretty well considering all the figuring I needed to do with all the pieces cut for those G.D. rounded corners.

    Looking good. @dirtywhiteboy had posted a jig he uses for marking trim when doing round corners.

    Must have felt good getting back into the shop after a long winter.

    That’s not a mess! I would be embarrassed to show a pic of mine right now. Between planing, dovetailing and fitting, there are chips and shavings everywhere.

    There are only two ways to do things; the right way and again.

    I got the dovetailing finished today and the drawer fronts sanded to 220 grit.

    Looks good Charlie. I sure you will get better at the more you do.

    Same old stuff for me at work. Happy the long week end is here. I have been dragging my butt all week. I am fighting some kind of flu bug. My wife has it too. One of my co worker was off work with for 9 days with it.

    There is actually yet another saw out for use on the joint I was cutting. The tenon saw wouldn’t go deep enough, so I had to take out the rip saw to finish it. Of course the rip saw has a wider kerf than the tenon saw on top of that, so 3 saws, the chisels, a spoke shave, the router plane, squares and marking gauges just to figure out and cut one joint.

    I’d love to see that if anyone has the link. I was able to figure it out with a combination of trial and error and math, but I’d love to have something better!

    I finished the trim today, got it all caulked and filled so that the HO’s could paint it. I had a meeting in a crawl space with my engineer friend in preparation for the second wave of seismic plate installs at the same house I worked on earlier this month, and then some quick fix-it type repairs in the afternoon. Nice, small problems (a door handle needed tightening, a circuit breaker wasn’t reset after a trip, and a leaking sink basin). I also got to send off invoices for s couple of bigger projects so more money should be coming in soon!
