Happy Woodworking 2007!
Happy New Year All,
The holiday break this year provided me with more shop time than most years (one of the benefits of my 2006 career change). Also, I received several nice woodworking and garden train related Christmas gifts. Plus, my 7-year old son received some of the coolest toys so far…many gadget related…I think that I like them as much as he does….Lego Mindstorms NXT and a toy microscope that allows you to upload images to the PC among them. The microscope does not work and needs to be exchanged, but I look forward to trying it with him.
Over the next few days I will be posting some of my observations on the new tools (and toys), as well as some comments about the significant progress made on the desk project. I will likely be moving to the dry-fit stage on the desk carcasses by the end of the month.
Additionally, my Shop-Vac (6 months old) stopped working again and the workshop is now a complete dust-bowl. Not healthy for anyone. Its my second Shop-Vac in 2 years. I need to solve the saw dust control problem once and for all and I do not think that Shop-Vac brand will be in the solution. More posts about that soon too.
