Welcome to Woodworker++

This blog is intended to be a journal of my progress as a woodworker. Grab a drink, maybe some popcorn, sit back and enjoy a glimpse into my woodworking projects, both failed and successful. Why should you care what I do, or what I have to say? You shouldn't, but just maybe I can keep you from making the same mistakes that I had to learn the hard way.

Ohhhh yeah...

... the ball bearings came in. They worked great. Unfortunately, the tires that the blade rests on have "flat spots" on them. So when the blade is feeding through the guides it moves left to right about 1/4". That ain't good. So, the band-saw remains in pieces until I can get replacement tires.

I flattened a board today. 4 sides, by hand. Maybe 1/64" out of flat. That's pretty good. The edges were square to the faces as well. I was pretty proud.
