    Today will be a "Fetch & Carry" sort of day...
    Sort through the Stash of Ash..carry a couple planks to the shop..try to find a few good blanks in them to make Drawer Fronts with..then go back upstairs, and fetch some more, and carry them to the shop....

    Need 8 blanks for drawer fronts.....and need enough blanks to glue up a Bread Board edged Top panel..

    Will need to move the case out of the way, for today....going to be a Tablesaw day, today....

    All on a day I normally leave the shop closed....Monday.

    Stay tuned...

    Fetch & Carry...first trip was for blanks for 8 drawer fronts..
    Fetch & Carry, 8 drawer blanks.jpg
    2 were already 3/4" thick...the other 6 were ~4/4 and I had to resaw them down a bit..after I had ripped them to final width, and squared the ends..will need to flatten things out, later
    Fetch & Carry, needs flattened.jpg
    A few passes with a plane should fix that..

    2nd trip..fetch two more planks, and carry them to the shop..
    Fetch & Carry, 2nd trip.jpg
    needed enough blanks to make a top panel..
    Fetch & Carry, blanks for a top.jpg

    Need to joint the edges..
    Fetch & Carry, later tasks.jpg

    Decided to cut 2 blanks for length over on the Langdon 72c...then joint the edges a bit..
    1 Tuesday Afternoon, 13.jpg
    And get them ready to plough a groove...
    1 Tuesday Afternoon, 10.jpg
    For one thing, there isn't much of a set-up with these sort of Match planes...swing the fence to make either a Tongue, or a groove...and be done by the Time I'd get the Stanley #45 ready..plus the fence is smaller than the 45's

    Managed to get one of two grooves milled.
    1 Tuesday Afternoon, 11.jpg
    That one photo with the Skil saw..also shows my NEW router bit..

    Stay tuned...

    That router bit was bought at Harbor Freight this morning, along with a 30" F style clamp ( now have a pair!) and a pack of three 80 grit sanding belts...
    1 Tuesday Afternoon, 7.jpg
    There was one problem...it was too FAT..and would NOT fit in the hole in the router's base...hmmm...base IS plastic..we have ways
    1 Tuesday Afternoon, 9.jpg
    Clamp the router into the wood jaws of the bench vise...load up the router bit, nice and tight...right against the bottom of the base...turn router "on"...use the supplied Allen wrench to SLOWLY raise the base up into the spinning bit..until it is all the way through the base. shut router down....there WAS a thin ring of plastic around the shank of the bit,, cut that free. Goal is to run a rebate along both ends top and bottom, to form a tongue that matches the groove in the bread board ends..may need the guide fence, again...as I don't think the Union #41 can cut 1/2" deep grooves...

    Clear as mudd?
