    Yea, I know, I've been away... I'll post a catch up post when I don't have an 80 pound dog trying to share a lazy boy with me.

    But in the mean time. I've decided to get some tools open up some work space in the shed and try my hand at some wood work

    The table may have been nothing special, but it's a start... Did that with my circular saw, got a table saw yesterday... Making a cross cut sled for it tomorrow I can catch up on as I go.

    Btw, missed youse guys IMG_20180331_151056884.jpg IMG_20180331_145731082.jpg IMG_20180331_170813974.jpg IMG_20180402_194216612.jpg IMG_20180402_223314773.jpg IMG_20180406_224817635.jpg IMG_20180406_224109713.jpg

    Made the little table from a scrap piece of plywood I grabbed at work. When it turned out looking like what it was supposed to look like,... I was shocked

    That's Magnum, I saved him from a gas chamber with 12 hours to spare. Was supposed to be my foster dog, but after a year it was decided he would just stay with me.

    I have had the beard for almost 2 years now lol... My hair is below my shoulder though... It's not really long, just been to busy to sit for a hair cut

    I just opened some space up for myself, although it's still a bit small,specially with the third winter we are having this week

    We had some here too, and it's still cold and damp out. At least I got my little table saw sled done. Rides smooth in the table tracks, need some wax yet. The cold made glueing a little tougher than it had to be IMG_20180408_165824819.jpg IMG_20180408_165550931.jpg IMG_20180408_165446615.jpg

    I need to make a portable table stand for the saw. Little box on castors pretty much, with space to hold the blade guards and anti kick back knives.

    Needs to be just tall enough that the saw table will align with my portable work table so i can use that as an outfeed table.

    But need nicer weather to do that lol.

    Pretty sure I bought tools to make stuff for the tools I bought... At some point I'll make actual stuff though lol

    I think I queitly grew mine at the same time... I've had it for a while, I was posting about beard oils on BnB before I withered away. Keep telling myself I'm going to shave it, and never do.
