  1. my trick with DTV is, when you have to state the purpose of your call, say "cancel my service", you will get right to an English speaking person willing to listen, and actually do something about your beef.
  2. make sure to get a cordless one I have a bosch 18V for a number of years, works great.
  3. sweet, thanks for sharing.
  4. Been busy shooting pheasants but have managed to bang it out not as many pics as I would have liked phone was full and I am not too skilled at moving pictures off to make room one drawer was a bit too wide so had to make a small adjustment but overall happy with the way it came together
  5. After a lot of fussing the top is glued up and drawer glides have arrived pheasant hunting for 4 days niw will post pics of glide installation a few tricks make it easy
  6. sweet!! I always thought they traveled at night.
  7. Also glued the panels on drawer carcass. Now I have to start the top which is a pain in the ass because I don't have a jointer to have to keep fussing with the joints on table saw which isn't ideal.
  8. Went to Menards got some pine for drawers much cheaper than using nice stuff planed it to 1/2" thickness then put a 1/4" dado blade on table saw set it to cut 1/4" deep then only have to move fence once and drawers done in a jiffy. Need to get some drawer glides and find some nice cutoffs for face of drawer but ice to be making dust again.
  9. will do, I am in the process of applying finish to what is done, which is booooring. drawers are next up, and I will post some pictures of construction. I have made lots of them using the dado set mentioned above, easy and very strong joints. then, a couple of rails, glue up the top, and call it good. thinking now about what to do with the cut-offs, the wood is very nice, and I am thinking some jewelry boxes would be nice presents, will see how much time permits
  10. Going to finish some parts before final assembly put walnut edging on the plywood if you cut it wide and glue on then use a bearing guided flush cutter router bit to trim off for a perfect fit
  11. Went to menards got some plywood for case got some edging glued to it will be coming together shortly
  12. Been preoccupied with grouse lately and weather too nice to sit in garage but spent an hour tonight finishing one of three panel assemblies all glued up I use the Freud super dado for all groove cuts it's the best dado set I have used very easy to fine tune widths with the included shim set
  13. his place looked a bit sketchy, but he was really nice. only trouble is its a long haul from my house
  14. http://duluth.craigslist.org/mat/5783043106.html I might give this guy a call, $4 for rough sawn walnut is pretty decent, and this stuff looks nice.
  15. I found a retired guy on craigslist, his hobby is going out and finding unique logs and then sawing them into lumber (he has a sawmill), he was way the F out in Wisconsin, right before you go into Patterson park, you turn left at those bars and go a few miles. He has tons of different types of wood that is not available at any big box store, prices were very good I thought. I bought all the curly maple he had because for the price I couldn't pass it up. I am planning some jewelry boxes with the cut offs from this desk.
