Starting up, plans,
Lumber Run...had a 1 x 6 x 6'5" plank to make a Project from. Paul Sellers' Masterclasses provided a downloadable set of plans ( to go with a video series of How-to build it)

Lid will be sawn off after the box has been glued up. There is also a plan on how to join the curved corners..

But, first..I needed to clear off the bench, haul a board that is taller than me down to the shop, while not hitting me head or banging the plank around...4th step from the bottom, I have to duck a bit...floor joist will hit me shoulder...

Then go over the cutting list...and see what all I need to cut that plank down to...2 ends, 2 sides (plus a spare) a blank for the top and the bottom panels. Then Crosscut, rip and resaw....as 3/4" thick plank was a bit too thick..

There is also a finger lift to carve. both the lid and bottom panels sit in grooves, so that they look like they are floating. I haven't decided on those applied feet, just yet.

Spent about 90 minutes IN the shop, today...film at 2300 hrs...having a Tonic & Gin...both to cool the body down, and keep the leg cramps under control....

Stay tuned..

Another bump for updates... I know you're further along than this; seen the pics in other threads ;)
Yes he is. We're all learning how to navigate the new site. Part 2 of this Journal (ex-blog?) is here. HTH.

Huh. Why a part 2, instead of continuing the original? Or if a fresh start is warranted, a link to the new discussion - like you provided - seems a good idea. I imagine that a number of people - myself included - were following this thread, waiting for the next update.

For starters, the old way of doing things (Blogs) allowed you to do a Part 1, Part 2, etc. of a series, and then a comment like this on one part would not drag down the entire discussion. Further, blogs used to be auto-magically linked to each other for easier navigation, much like you suggest. But blogs were originally lost in the conversion, then they were filed as a sub-forum under forums (but no longer connected to each other) and finally, Journals were introduced and encouraged as an alternative to Blogs. Also, there were Projects in Progress introduced (and since left to wither and die) as an alternative to Blogs.

The content on the site is now a real dog's breakfast, thanks to not everyone getting the same info (have you read the entire Community Feedback: New Forum Software Is Live! forum? All 50 [and growing pages]? Your question tells me: no.). So content has been added to the site as the advertised, understood and/or preferred way of doing things has changed.

Yes, your suggestion would be nice. Oddly, that's the way the old blogs used to work. But expecting EVERY user to KNOW ALL the content of the New Software thread, let alone expecting them to have the time and energy to put in the effort to update all of their old content as the site changes might be a bit naive or polyanic.

Enjoy the Part 2 that I linked to above. You are free to organize (or not) and link to (or not) your content as you see fit. The site no longer does any of that for us, and there's no way to enforce it. Two steps forward and one back...

You (and I) can either adapt or go away; it is what it is.

I'd read it, up to a point, and decided it wasn't worth piling on. I'm well aware of the speed bumps - and I'm pretty sure the OP is as well.
