I'm especially short of Quickgrip bar clamps and need at least 5 more.
The Foreman decided that watching princess movies in the shop was more fun than helping Daddy.
Today's first issue is to paint the final coat of black paint on the legs. The wind was blowing but it was sunny so I did the painting outside. The mud is two inches thick or more from months of rain here in the "sunny" south. I'm moving to Seattle.
This is a note to remind me to bring some more pens to the shop. I use pens to mark lumber instead of pencils because I can see the lines better.
I forgot to mention why I'm using plywood for the view blocks instead of luan. My plan is to use Bob's method of "locking" the two sections together using dowel keys. In order to do this I need to have a wood that is easily drilled along the grain. Luan splinters and is too thin, so I'm using lightweight plywood.
I'm using a drywall square only because it is handy. Wish I had a T-square that was a little shorter.
I need a pair of safety glasses for my little girl. Anyone know where I can find a pair?
I clamped all of the eight view blocks together with clamps (see you need more!) and prepared to cut the radius with my handy jig saw.
I cut them just a little larger than the template so that I can sand them to size and make them smooth.
My final act for the day was to cut the Masonite backdrops out of 1/8" Masonite. Each is 28 1/2" long, which is longer than needed. I may revise this measurement.
Thats all! Off to the hospitals for all nighters!
