    Well...clamps came off today....for a while, anyway....no strange creaks, cracking noises....Might be getting the hang of doing a glue up..

    Needed to crosscut a board for the top and bottom of the collar...

    Doesn't take very long to cut through a 3/4" board...when the saw is 28" long...Top one then needed a bevel, to match the angle of the sides...
    Saw Til Door, #12-004c.JPG
    We have ways....Then some glue and clamps...hinge side?
    Saw Til Door, collar glued up, hinge side.JPG
    Bottom used spring clamps..
    Saw Til Door, bottom glued on.JPG
    With the other clamps pulling the sides in tight. Beveled top used the smaller F style HF clamps..C clamps worked well, to glue the wedge-shape sides to the door...
    Need to figure out how to hang 4 saws..
    Saw Til Door, 4 saws to hang.JPG
    2 panel saws, 2 backsaws...we are looking towards the top of the door.

    Latch side. panel saws?
    Saw Til Door, Atkins Panel saw.JPG
    24" Atkins skew back 8ppi.....and
    Saw Til Door, Sheffield Panel saw.JPG
    Sheffield Works (Atkins) rip saw, straight back 6ppi. The 2 backsaws are both WS....one is a 12", the other is a 14" filed crosscut.
    May reinforce the corners with a screw or two...counter bored and plugged, of course. Need to go to Blue BORG and get a piano hinge, a handle, and a latch....tomorrow.
    Stay tuned...

    Next time I'm in a more populated area, I will need to try a six pack! Around here, Guinness is not a big mover in beer distributors.

    If I had that many saws I would want a saw till as well. My saws are basic, one of each type. Never had any luck buying old saws.
    Take the day off, check your medications with your doctor to reduce your risk of those TIA’s. How about a pair of glass panel doors to keep the dust off?

    Too tired to lay any more.
    Due to complaints about the tilted case...
    Saw Til Door, no more tilts.JPG
    Bought two 8' sticks of chair rail molding, going to trim around the front of the til's door.

    "No more tilts"...to paraphrase Ozzy....and there will be a sign for the shop..

    Late last night...went to the shop for a few pictures that needed taken...wound up making a big mess...at 0300hrs..(gotta stop that..)
    Saw Til Door, clean up, Aisle 2.JPG
    Door's glue joints were all planed smooth, corners that will be seen...also got a round-over from the planes...couple end grains were trimmed down with a #3 Stanley. Even brought one of the 2 sticks of molding to the shop....since the Mitersaw doesn't use a noisy motor...I worked on what I could get out of the one stick..
    Saw Til Door, 3 out of 4.JPG
    2 longs, and a short...corners?
    Saw Til Door, 1st corner fitting, details.JPG
    Making a "Picture frame" around the door's plywood panel.
    Counter-bored a few screws, to reinforce the corners and the sides...

    Blow-out from a knot halfway in a groove...
    Saw Til Door, nailed and glued, needs sanded.JPG
    By this time, I was getting a bit tired...and missed a couple nail heads...will sand that out..when I get back to the shop...but NOT at 0300hrs in the morning
    Stay tuned...

    Heck of a day Steven C. Looks like you brought a "brisket king" home and need to try that beast out ASAP. I'll leave you to the mowing and square laying but glad to help with the smoking duties.

    Busy morning....then a Migraine hit about noonish....all afternoon for a nap to get rid of it....after Supper, woke up, and got a bit of work done in the shop...
    Saw Til Door, Miter cutting.JPG
    Two 2 tries to get that last 20" long piece of molding cut to fit...good thing I had 8' to work with. i used a bit of scrap to sit the molding flat....
    Glue and nails, then sanded smooth. Made a bunch of plugs to install in the counter-bores....cutter was having ..."Issues"..and lopped of the heads of a few of the plugs...
    Saw Til Door, plugs ready.JPG
    Screwdriver to pop a plug out, bead of glue on the narrow end, hammer to set them in the holes, chisel to trim flush...sand smooth.

    The real challenge was the piano hinge....trying to hang the door....R Lee Ermy would have been impressed at the level of cussing going on..
    Saw Til Door, door is open.JPG
    A handle was the easy part...but the latch....meh..
    Saw Til Door, handled, latched,hung.JPG
    Glutton for punishment...I also hung 3 more saws...
    Saw Til Door, another 2 saws.JPG
    There is a metal "keeper" holding the saws in place...swung down..
    Saw Til Door, keepers engaged.JPG
    To engage. To release..
    Saw Til Door, keeper released.JPG
    Rotate them up to release. Then I swept the floor, and closed the shop....had more than enough "fun" for one day...
    Stay tuned...

    Letting it dry for today....no, I did not apply that smelly stuff to the inside of the case.....year from now, you can still smell it..
