Default Show your lockdown project?

Let’s see what you’re doing if you’re locked down at home? This is inlay I’ve done over the past few days with the Milescraft kit and the Bosch inlay cutter kit. Using the Bosch produces a slightly different shape from that produced by the Milescraft bushings and cutter. The woods are yew and zebrano in mahogany. It’ll get a pass through a drum sander to take out the initial sanding scratches.
While I was doing this I was thinking (always a bad sign) of a way to use my Bosch inlay kit in my Makita trim router. I think it can be done, I will get a machinist to make a custom part when the lockdown is over.

Stick, I think John was expecting you to put in pictures of whatever you're working on...

I would be working on finishing my buffet build, but because I'm still sick, I haven't been done to the garage for that in nearly a month. But just to tease, I've included a picture of about where I'm up to. I've added a shelf in the cabinet area since taking this photo.

Default getting around to a lot of small projects

small parts storage cabinet.
It sits on top of a small cabinet with casters on it. I roll it back in
to the small space where I have a few clamps stored.
I love when I dial in the dado stack just right - nice and tight fit.
