A bit of a mess right now...but when isn't it? Big Grin
Inherited an old West System epoxy dispenser that's badly in need of an overhaul. Haven't gotten up the courage to put on my gloves and get elbow deep in old disgusting crusty resin/hardener. Been playing with a cute little laser engraver and having fun so far.



 Badly in need of a real workbench so hopefully I'll be able to build a basic one soon. I like Rob Cosman's design with mdf top and Baltic Birch legs. My dw735 planer lives under the bench on a scissor lift cart but it's out being used on some floating shelves from FWW#277 (sitting on the laptop). I've got some of the components machined from reclaimed poplar and sitting on my tablesaw (the other workbench Wink)

Yes. Best thing I've ever put on a machine. I love it.

2-3 batteries a year? maybe.

Follow up to show the Connect4 game with its final paint job. Been leaving out near the sidewalk in front of the house and had a few people stop and play games.

Weekend project was finishing up two cedar planters to go in front of house. Wasn't really a fan of most of what I could buy so made a couple. 

I still have to make a couple of riser boxes to partly fill inside so they won't need so much dirt. Probably make the boxes so they only take up about 1/2 the width so there can be a deep side and a shallow side of the planter.

One box I brushed on the stain, the other I tried spraying it. Spraying the stain worked much better, should have done that for both. But in a month or two, they will even out and won't be able to tell the difference.

Phone camera shot came out a bit blurry, but you get the idea.

Bee hive parts today. Too warm for much garden work.

Making inner lids as the wife ran out of those.

Love the saw fence. I have the same one and enjoy it.
