Couldn’t find any 3” aluminum angle ‘iron’ (not sure what you call it when it’s not iron) but I did get 24” of flat 3” steel. It’ll be a bear to cut, drill and countersink, but I think it’ll work for the router table. Busy week, maybe some progress pics thus weekend.
leave of absence
sorry i’ve been out of the shop for so long. here is my list of excuses:
it’s been too damn cold to think in the garage
i’ve had to shovel snow when i should be building stuff
i got into reading some books last year and haven’t stopped
our rental house has been annoying and somewhat time consuming.
my position at camp changed and technically it’s still my “off season”. i’m now the programming director. the big kahuna in change of scheduling and crap. with this change, i won’t be in charge of decorations anymore, but i will be the lead foreman for any necessary builds. basically that means i don’t have to clutter my time and shop with little things and i can just do the big fun stuff.
oh, and i had lasik surgery last week, so i have to be careful. of dust and pretty much everything else in the shop for a while.
don’t worry, i still have a laundry list of stuff to do. most are shop improvements i’ve already mentioned, but with the end of my decoration days, i hope to get into a little “finer” woodworking. maybe finish those knife grips i started two years ago and all the collapsible/mailable trebuchet ideas i had.
