At least I was planing Alder…

I have a two hose setup and move them around to my DC. Going from the planer to the jointer is easy.

But this time I disconnected the hose from the jointer at the DC and connected it to the planer. So my DW735 was blowing its chips back into the jointer. Lol. Took a minute to figure out my there were substantial piles of sawdust around my jointer after using the planer…

That was a 5-minute clean-up.

I’ve been brain farting quite a bit lately too. There’s those other thousand things in my head taking up all the room ;P Whatcha’ making with Alder? I hear it’s the wood of woods. Well according to Fridge. I’ll have to get some.

Working Alder will make you smarter and less prone to doing dumb stuff. Just breathing Alder dust for a few minutes does the trick.

That is what I was counting on. But it let me down!

I tried running the weed eater today. I PO’d a nest of yellow jackets. They got me 12-14 times.

I cut some prototype pieces on my CNC out of 3/8” plywood to see if everything was as I expected and everything was.
So I loaded the .3” teak to cut the final pieces … without resetting the material thickness.
Now I have a groove’s in the spoil board, good to have a spoil board!

I had one this afternoon. Had to sand the base I was working on. Grabbed the ROS. Pulled the vacuum over and plugged the ROS into it and proceeded to sand without hooking up the hose to the sander. Yeah the vacuum was running and it all sounded right until I started to see the dust fly lol

Well….As far as I know, I didn’t do anything dumb, stupid, or have a brain fart….I stayed inside instead of going out to the shop….I had a feeling something might happen…How much trouble can one get into being on the ‘puter….!!! Now it all might change tomorrow…..!! I can’t predict the future…..!!!

Respectfully may I say, Alder does not let a person down. Alder is a wood that few understand, except for a few here on LJ. When handled correctly you will create beauty…
May I add- did you collect the Alder chips and use them in your smoker?
People will be surprised by the flavor that Alder chips add to smoking.

Yes, Desert_Woodworker, my son the CNC machinist, always tells me that mistakes with the Z axis are the most memorable.
And, I do have a bag of Alder chips for griling!

Of course not! Alder is too precious to smoke. I gound them up in a mortar & pedestal to a fine powder, neatly lined the dust in rows on a mirror using an Amex card, and snorted all of it!

BurleyBob – I hope you did not have a reaction to that? Nasty bit of luck my friend.

Gratitude, Tim.
