When you get past Nebraska, the trip is fucking awesome. Until then it's boring AF.

Those all look great but those two striped ones are stunning cutting boards. I wouldn't want to cut on them they look so good.

Thanks bro! Yeah, a lot of people don't even use them to cut on. Most just use them for serving or whatever. I generally offer free refinishing to whoever buys one. I can quickly clean up a surface with the planer so it's a fun service that encourages people to use them.

For the one with the five stripes down the middle it was a fun surprise to see that the maple used was curly, wasn't expecting that at all.

And just like that, they're all gone. This was the fastest I got rid of three freshly made boards. Hope it's a sign of things to come.

FINALLY got this map frame finished. Had to do all of the finishing work in my basement since it's far too cold outside to do finishing work. One of my wife and I's life goals is to visit all the national parks in the country so, in order to track our progress, I bought this map off of Amazon and went about framing it to hang up and pin our progress. Frame is made out of solid walnut with half lap joints, no screws used in the making of this frame. We've made a good amount of progress in the last year or two but definitely have a long way to go!


In other news, this paduk serving board finally made its maiden voyage at thanksgiving.


And for attention, here's a sleeping puppy.

Also, I got an awesome deal on black friday for this DeWalt planer that I've always wanted so I pulled the trigger on it. New table saw coming in the spring time and MAYBE a CNC machine over the winter. I'm still trying to sell my wife on that one.

Nice planer. I've been thinking of replacing my old Delta portable planer with one, but the Delta refuses to die.

Frame looks really good.

Congrats! Nice pickup on the planer. I have been eying that one since I started doing wood work now but I think it will have to wait another year.

That's exactly what I have now is a Delta lunchbox planer, it still works great but managing snipe and such isn't so much fun with that one. I'll be selling it soon.

Depending on how much you're doing, you can go with one of the two post planers (the one I got is a four post, my current one is a two post) as they are quite a lot cheaper but have some drawbacks. If you're doing a lot then get the nicer one.

Yup, though this one I got through Rockler which is where most of my paycheck ends up going these days...

They matched the Amazon price though. Love that store and the service they provide.

Ahhh gotta head to the nearby Rockler and support the business as well, woodworking is a lost art. I'll probably hold off on the planer until we move into the new place..

Definitely not a bad choice.

Yeah, they've been really good to me overall so I like to support them as much as I can.

Well...as luck would have it, a the model I wanted popped up on craigslist last night in great shape and hardly used for a great price. So as of this evening I'll be the proud new owner of a Shapeoko 3 CNC machine.

Oh the possibilities this opens up, I'm super excited.

My efforts to upgrade the shop over the winter continues. Out goes the DeWalt jobsite table saw and in comes the SawStop contractor saw with 36" (!!!) rip capacity.



I just realized I didn't post a pic of the CNC machine so I'll grab one tonight. I finally got a shitty laptop from my parents to run the damn thing so I want to get it going this weekend if I can.

Yup, all SawStop models have the safety brake which is the entire reason I spent an enormous amount of money for this damn thing. At the end of the day, the cost of the saw is still less than my insurance deductible lol.

I don't necessarily have to rip 72" material on the regular but you have to get the 36" model to get the good fence system. Also, i've already come across a number of instances on my current saw (21" rip) that I needed more.

FWIW, sheet material is typically 48"x96".

A great fence is a must. And I have a 52 Unisaw with outfeed table. You should get as much surface as you can around the blade. So much more flexibility from the tool that way.

Try to square up a 36" coffee table top and let me know how that goes with a 24" rip lol.

This. Having surface around the blade is also a huge safety thing. You don't want your stuff lifting or moving while cutting.

I'm going to make a folding outfeed and attach it to the ass end of the saw. I don't have space for a permanent one.

Thanks! I'm excited to start using it once it's not cold AF outside.

To be honest, the best (and safest) way to rip sheet goods is with a straight edge and a circular saw. That's the way I do it 99% of the time.
