Mike: There. It's over and done. Well done (like always). You have now satisfied the curiosity of countless people and put yourself (well the EP600) in grave and mortal danger for our edification. You f'rock! Your loghome is way cool, too!

Well it's "Produced", but it's all real. I'm around it every day so sometimes I forget what it really is from concept to a product.

Thought some of you might enjoy this:

Thanks for that, Jeff. Saw that chair somewhere just last month---I.D., Metropolis? Can't recall. I was taken then with it's proportions and the scooped out rail. Tres slick.

FYI: Regarding all the veneer talk lately, this month's Fine Woodworking has a great section on curved veneer methods, and various projects.

Best FWW I have seen in years - for my interest, anyway.

I'm about (holds up thumb and finger) this far from starting a Bbigwyres-style rant about woodworking. After finally admitting that the sawed-off oil drum I was using for a workbench needed some improvements (a granite top and tail vise were mentioned) I figured I would put together something with a 2x4 frame and 3/4" plywood top. A bit of research on the ol' internet quickly revealed that only the lowest of primates would ever use something like that, and that much better workbenches could be built with almost no effort and the most common of household tools.


The first and most obvious less was that there is a dire need for a standard definition for "common household tools". According to what I have read, common household tools include a jointer *or* a planer (although of course a *real* man would have both), a set of exotically shaped chisels (presumably accompanied by a grinder to keep them sharp), a drill press, something called a dado set, and some kind of table saw on which to mount said dado set. Oh yes, and every project requires a different set of drills in the 1/64 - 4 inch range, implying somewhere on the order of 175 drills to cover the range.

I'm back to the 2x4 frame and 3/4" top design. If that's not sufficiently solid I can always fill it with concrete.

If you need all those tools to build a damn workbench how many tools do you need to actually make something ON the workbench ? How long does it take to build up all that stuff, and where do you keep it all ?

This barely qualifies as as a "got wood" post, but I'm almost done renovating the kids' bathroom and am very happy with it. The goal was to do it cheaply (<$500) and I succeeded there, even after buying a $179 miter saw (Ridgid, with a laser cut line). The main impetus to work on this bathroom was that there was a bit of subfloor that more or less disintegrated right by the tub, most likely due to water damage from previous residents.

I started a couple weeks ago by ripping out the old vinyl floor tiles, removing the toilet, wall-mounted sink, baseboards, and anything else attached to the walls (medicine cabinet, tp holder, towel rods). I cut out a section of subfloor the entire length of the tub about 1' wide and replaced it with new plywood. Then I painted the ceiling (white) and top-half of the walls (medium blue).

I've never done drywall or tile before, and I didn't want to start, so I kept the pinkish tiles in the tub surround and covered the bottom 44" of the remaining walls with mdf beadboard panels, painted white. This helped hide the drywall that had a few too many visible patch jobs. Then I installed a sheet of vinyl flooring and added the baseboards, caulking all around the edges and agains the tub to water proof the room as much as possible against my splashy kids. \:\)

My wife bought a used pedestal sink and a toliet from a local re-use store (good way to save money!) and I installed the toilet today. I would have had the sink in, too, but I need to get a part for where the P-trap meets the wall.

Silly me, I have no pictures yet, but if you bug me, I'll post some.
I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

I like how you're talking about replacing all this stuff, cutting up the subfloor, etc, and then you balk at tile and drywall. ;\)

The third word reveals your underlying problem. Use the word, "need," only when you're spending the $$ or telling your wife about it (fools rush in). You're merely supposed to covet this stuff, then acquire it. Now, to justify, you have to "play" with it to learn how to use it. Then you figure out what you could use it for. After that, you make space for it. Got it?

Oh, and I think you mean drill bits. 175 good drills would cost over $20,000. You "need" only one. I have eight (get the picture?). A set of really good bits (30 sizes +/-) is about $50.00. I have more than 350 bits lying around somewhere(s).

Ooooh! Look at the new Festool Domino joiner! I know I "need" that for something important! And soon!
