« Part 25: seven hours in the shop? Part 26 of That OddLots Ad series Part 27: Door #2 done »

Well, after that LONG Tuesday work session….decided to stay out of the shop, yesterday…....

Last night….got tired of looking at the two 1×12s that were still sitting in the kitchen (why?) so I thought i would just haul those to the shop…Boss wanted the dryer checked, as well….what could go wrong with this plan?

Two boards..about 4 bf a piece….Home Depot wanted $8.96 + tax a piece…Dug around until I found these two keepers….meh…will do for shelves.

Dryer needed restarted…what to do while I wait?

Rounded up the Usual Suspects….that blank sitting in the jig…thought I would at least try the jig out, to see if it would work….plane a simple bevel….one thing led to another…

Soon ran out of end grain bevels to do…rebuilt the jig….and again did a test drive..

Jack plane did most of this bevel, then cleaned things up with the #3c…...was making a mess on the floor..

Well, jig works, clothes are dry….replaced with clothes from the washer, restart. Had just enough fun for today…

Should have known better than to go down to the shop, something always seems to get done…
Maybe after Lunch, today..I can finish making the raised panels…and after Supper, do a glue-up?

Stay tuned…
