Projects

Okay, project #1 is repaired (again). I even got the most difficult cutting and fitting completed without further mishap. I seem to be on the home stretch for that one, finally. Project #2 is stalled because I ran out of size 0 biscuits, so I need to make a run to Sears or Woodcraft tomorrow to get more. Projects #3 and #4 need some thinking about, because I should probably make a jigs for the tricky cutting that's next. This should be fairly simple for #3, but I still have no idea to do #4, which involves cutting a tricky pattern. I've tried doing it freehand, and I just can't do it. What I really need is one of those snazzy computer controlled automatic router jigs that seem to be in every factory This Old House visits anymore.

I'm getting annoyed with hardware manufacturers. They just don't offer what I need, which sort of boggles me. It seems like it should be commonplace stuff. Not even Rockler has what I need, unless I buy some things (for a LOT of money) that have the piece I need as part of a larger package of stuff that I don't. Tres annoying. Plus I keep mislaying the packages of stuff that I do buy. Feh.
