Wow, looks like there was a real opportunity to sand your finger down too. (-;
Why are some areas on the plans covered with white? hings you completed?

Thanks all.

Ron Behind the white spots there are the sizes of the pieces. I never (till now) have sanded my fingers. The sanding disk is also provided with variable speed, almost without loosing power. Sometimes I use as you can see on some pictures a plier.

You just made another point for getting my disk sander fixed for the SS, being able to slow the sander down had not ever entered my mind.
Slow it down for the small stuff, cool!!!

I just printed out the plans for the log truck.
And can’t get over how BIG THIS THING IS.

I’m talking HUGH!!!
IT’s twice as big as the wood store toy plans.
I’m temped to cut it down by a 1/3, I just don’t need it this big.
Can I get some thoughts on this.

Dutchy, sorry for this foreign correspondence and stealing the limelight from your fantastic (and I say that with sincerity) work.

I m temped to cut it down by a 1/3, I just don t need it this big.

- htl

htl dropping scale to 1/3 makes for small pieces VERY small. My suggestion would be to plan for a bigger cabinet.

-- If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD
