Talking New Toys In The Shop!!

Can ya' find 'em?

Decided last weekend to either get the dust collector or a toy, and Ken and I (after talking to the guy at Performance Tool) decided against the Dust Collector (for now.) I'm going to need dust collection mostly for sanding. For that, we've got a couple ideas. I'll share later. We also changed out the top on the cart that the miter saw and planer are sitting on. Got a great deal on it, and bought Ken a 20v DeWalt 7 1/4" circular saw. He deserved a new toy, for all the work he's putting in to my workshop.

So I got two additions to the shop, and last night, I actually tried out the desk and cut a sign. Played with my new planer, and was covered from head to doe in wood chips. It was awesome lol. Tonight, I was able to cut a larger sign for my sister in-law, which I'll post both, sometime this weekend.

Hung up three signs above the main entrance... My very first sign I made using the B&D Rotary Tool Ken bought me back in '97. The one on the left was the replacement once I started using the router, and the one on the right, was my first experiment with the 'V' bit.

You have a nice workspace Barb. Even without having the walls and ceiling sheathed it looks nice and bright.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Shop is looking good Barb
You really need to get a vacuum on the planer or a big shovel, it will put a lot saw dust on the floor.

Thanks, Stick. That's ideas #3 & #4

Not to mention, those would work with the plug attachment we bought.
