« Part 2: Major screw up today Part 3 of Window shelving series Part 4: Table Saw is Back »

Here is what I have so far on the window shelving. Had to stop to get TS fixed. The switch went out on it. The pics are of 6ft 1×6 select pine and 1/2 inch pine from Johnson’s workebench.
I was able to set up and test fit the dados. I will have my TS back by next tuesday.






So this is what I have done. The only thing I have not taken a pic of yet is the actual dados that I have already cut. Hope this helps.

BTW I am going through withdrawls without the TS.

Sorry about the TS. I would send you pictures of mine, but I think it would only make it worse :(

Nice looking wood for the project, will look real nice when complete. I hope there are no further delays with the project. Hang in there.

Hi Rick,
Those darn tools always break down when you need them most. There must be some sort of conspiracy. :->

Don’t you just hate it when that happens.

Looks like the progress was pretty good up until then.

Is that why you are going back to the Bench, to get your TS? What are you paying for your select pine over there? Menards in Lansing has some pretty good Select Pine pretty cheap. Probably cheaper than the Bench. Not the one on Saginaw but the one off Cedar St. What day you going over there to the Bench? Sat or Fri.?

No I just haven’t been to that bench in a long time. My saw is at Sears service center. I payed $7.49 a piece for 6 ft pieces. We were thinking Fri. but we are flexible.

I found a cure for that problem of tools breaking down when you need them most, always have a backup, and if possible, have two, (backups that is). Apparently part of my probllem with not having time to get at the projects is that I’m too busy buying tools to build them with.
