Return to the Shop and Garden Railroad Trackbed Jig
Its been a few weeks since I have been able to spend time in the shop…vacation (rainy at the Outer Banks), sick kids, the usual.
My birthday brought me a JDS Air Cleaner for the shop from my wife. I have not installed it yet, but it looks like a great unit. I will report on how it works when I get it mounted on the ceiling.
Several projects are now ready to hit the shop at once:
* continuing the two Greene and Greene Desks
* build three more oak Adirondack chairs for our backyard
* build the new “ladder-style” roadbed for our outdoor garden railroad (another of my hobbies)
I did manage to finsh a jig for the garden railroad roadbed during my “break from the shop” over the past few weeks. The jig should make it ease to turn out the volume of roadbed that I will need much faster.
I’m also having problems with my chop saw (a ten year old Craftsman 10″)…not sure yet what is wrong with it. Maybe bad motor brushes. Makes a horrible noise. I need to spend some time on it between projects.
