Out of wood…


I started on the drawers for my tool cabinet, but realized that I didn’t have enough wood for the job.

I milled the drawer fronts from one piece of Alder I had on hand, but the other length wasn’t wide enough.  I decided not to run to the local wood store because the weekend traffic in Santa Cruz is murder.  Santa Cruz is a major destination for Bay Area folks in search of some beach action.

Instead I’m going to spend the time I would have sat in traffic fine tuning my table saw and organizing my shops.  The wood shop is in pretty good shape, especially now that the tool cabinet is mostly done.  I need to fix a leak in the dust collector ducting and do a little clean up.  Then I need to do a major overhaul on the metal shop, luckily my son is on the hook to help me for a couple of hours.

Along the way I’ll move the parts for my Roubo bench over to the wood shop so I can work on that later.
