« Part 13: Another drawer down Part 14 of Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog series Part 15: Seems like baby steps »

Got to spend a little time working on Saturday. Had hoped for an earlier start since the weather was going to be nice most of the day, but had to run some errands with SWMBO in the morning. Knew this might be my last chance to actually be able to work in the driveway with nice weather so I’d really hoped to get to a point that what I had left I could do in the garage with it closed up. I managed to get the three drawers and faces that are going next to the one large drawer below the saw done along with the dadoes for the bottoms of the drawers going in the end where the down draft table will be. I wasn’t able to get them installed though. By the time I called it quits, the temp had dropped from about 72 when I started to about 45 at my last check before starting to clean up. The wind had shifted to the north and was gusting to probably 20 mph, and while it wasn’t freezing cold, it was a real pita. Even if it had just been the temp dropping I probably would’ve stuck it out a bit longer, but the wind really was getting to be a nuisance. Weather’s supposed to be nice again this weekend, so maybe between all the Christmas-ing I’ll be able to get those drawers installed.

Hope the weather is cooperating for you.

Thanks, I’d love to say it has but it hasn’t really lately. Cold or rain for the most part. This Saturday is supposed to be nice with the exception of a chance of rain. I’m hoping it’ll hold off for me. Even if it doesn’t I’ll probably still see what I can get done.

Have your say...
