    It is going to look great @MTROads. Have you thought about using a veneer for the top? You can get some awesome looking walnut burl veneer from someone out there.

    Thought I replied to this but can’t find it…
    I used veneer for our own bedside tables, these are for one of our sons – he picked out the tiles that will fit inside the black walnut framing. He will grout those in once the tables are delivered.

    Frustrating day in the shop today,

    You get days like that when nothing goes right and you have to do stuff 2 or 3 times.

    Pretty much a bummer when not getting in as much shop time as I wanted, and then have to re-do things…. oh well – keep marching on….

    Installed a new set bathroom taps yesterday. Also I worked on paper work for taxes.

    Times like that seem to come in cycles, other times everything I do works out great the first time.

    Got the footing dug yesterday for the addition I’m starting. Now it’s raining. I really need a dry couple days to finish it up.

    I think I am going to get the chainsaw out and work on clearing some trails back into my property.

    I made a polypropylene cutting board
    I had a bigger piece for a while and I cut it and that was it : 16″ x 14″ x 1/2″

    Part of the process, all the panels during glue-up. There are still 2 panels to be done, but different sizes for the drawer fronts.
    Both cases are complete, heading to the hardwood warehouse later today to get enough Black Walnut to trim out the sides and around the tops – leaving enough room for the piece of tile the son wants to grout in place.
    Question for those that do grouting – how much of a gap should I leave for the son between the edge of the tile and the top trim? I was thinking around 1/8″ – is that enough of a gap?

    Nice to have a good size cutting board, but being a router-junkie, I’m afraid I would have kept that in the shop for an emergency router plate. 🙂

    1/8″ should be enough.
    You can do it smaller but then you’d go nuts trying to squeeze it in there.

    That lexan polycarbonate is strictly for router bases.
    It’s expensive, you know that, and it cost me nothing. 5 minutes of work.
    Hunt the old lcd computer monitors ( thrown away at the curb ), tear them apart and you’ll have your lexan polycarbonate.

    Lots of rain around sure makes getting a few dry days in a row tough.

    Yes they are on my property…Have a little over 20 acres. There are some old logging/mining roads (probably from the 30’s) that I am cleaning up and some newer trails for ATV/UTV that haven’t been maintained for a decade or so.

    Since I have been home more recently my wife has increased the must do list, including mounting stuff etc. long story to say that I tried these little dust catchers that someone gave me to try. The verdict is that they work well for a single use relatively small hole, particularly in my old lathe and plaster house.
