Busy weekend. A number of small and large projects were completed this weekend so lets get to the list.

The first was completing the painting in the fab shop. This is what it looked like.

DSC_4616sI need to build a dust cabinet around the cnc router and I wanted the access to be where I can install and remove fixtures and parts.

I finished the radial arm saw table.



My wife started on the new library/document room.

DSC_4621sWe also got the cnc router up and running. The parameters had been changed and it took most of Saturday getting it to work properly. Here is a quick video of it cutting air.


The other project that was worked on was the photographic stand for rifles and pistols. The first version I was using a lazy susan to allow me to move it.

    All I can say is ‘WOW.’ That looks great and the library sounds great.

    The library for manuals and paper work will help a great deal. I had stuff everywhere and it was impossible to find anything when I needed it. The books are in book cases through out the house and I still misplace them.
