« Part 3: Just a quick update Part 4 of My Low-Budget Builds series no next part

Ok, I figured I’d throw out a heads-up to those who were reading along that I will be resuming progress on the sharpening station.

I am finishing up the cut list and drawing out a rough sketch that I will post later tonight. I will also provide a materials list with prices and sources for everything I use.

After I get that posted, I will start cutting and building the torsion box, taking pictures and maybe even a video as I go.
I will admit though, I’m not a big fan of being on camera, so it may not be the best footage ever. As well I don’t have a fancy camera and mic set-up like a lot of guys do.
But my Canon 12mp digital camera does record video (HD even) and provides a good, clear picture, and it picks up sound well. So we’ll see what happens there. If it’s too awful, I’ll spare you the experience of looking at my ugly mug.

Well, I’m off to the drafting table to get to work on the sketches.
I did have a set already, but my younger cat, an orange tiger named “Frisky”, likes to claw up papers that get left out, so they are no more. Oh well, my bad. I should know better by now!

Thanks for reading. I’ll get the sketches up soon.

Looking forward to the info. Thanks for taking the time to do this.

BTW: For what it’s worth, people would probably prefer seeing your mug as opposed to mine!!!

Hi Kenny – I’m a bit of a technophobe but if I can figure ouit how to watch your vid and mug I’ll tune in.

One can never be to too well informed.
