006 New Glider Chair

"What a cool looking chair, Jim.  It looks really nice and smooth; did you test it out yet, Jim?   Seeing a porch chair glider is different and I bet you will get buyers for that idea.  Thanks for sharing, Jim."

Finished shutters.

" Hi, Mick.  I like your shutters on your shop windows. I think that was a wise idea with the different weather we are having these days. I also think it adds some class to your shop as well. Thanks for sharing your project."

" I use 409 with a wire brush. I soak my saw blades for about 45mins. to hour. It cleans them really good. I would rinse the 409 off with water and dry then spray WD-40 on both sides of the blade. It works great and it did't cost too much.…"

Thanks Leslee,  I will check them out.  Just starting out with the router so it will be a process of bit collection.   I use online tools a lot as a learning curve.

Hi Leslee , thank,s for nice comment on case , used Spanish Oak  on this one and a lot of my other project,s , the guy  did not want poly on this one  and did have a lot of room to display a lot of thing,s  , have a great day , JIM !!

Thanks for your input, Leslee.  I will check, but at our location our county doesn't require building permits, although they are quick to put an evaluation on our property tax!

Our plan is to purchase a building that comes with the metal all cut and all the hardware, overhead door, walk out door and window included.  We would like an overhang of the roof on one side to cover a porch area.  We will hire one experienced carpenter who has put up a couple of barns for us.  I am lucky in this, my husband, son, and neighbor are going to help the carpenter to keep costs at a minimum.  I am buying 6 inch insulation from my brother, who overbought for his shop.  That is all I have done for sure.  Are you putting up a building for a wood shop?  Did you have plans to install a dust collection system?  There are so many things to consider, I am a bit overwhelmed.  I am thankful for the carpenter we have, but he is open to new ideas too.

I hope your disability allows you to get your building up  and functioning soon.  It would be nice to have an area to work in this cold weather!

Have a great week, Kimbra

Hi Leslee  , Thank you very much for the comment on my chair ,  the oo1 picture is the one the guy sent me to see if I could make one like it , the 003 picture is the one that I made with a few changes to the boom  - tool box and the colors !! I am sorry if I confused every one by posting both pictures , just wanted to show every one what I had to work with to make  this chair , also posted my mistake on the main page  !! sending you a pic. of the right one , have a great day , JIM !!!

Thanks Leslee for all of the Information.  I will be checking out both of the websites.  I'm not ready to build one just yet, but I'm always looking to get ideas.  I will check out the information on the height for sure.  I am 5'7 and don't usually have too much trouble with the height of the tables.  This will definitely help me with making a decision.    Lorrie

Thanks for the tip on train items at Rockler.com. Not only are the buildings of interest to me, but I found the router bits for building the tracks to be something I was in the market for. Greatly appreciate it Leslee! :)

Leslee , thank you for your comment on my clamps , It did take years to get them , but I can do a few projects at a time and you can never have to many clamps, have a great day and enjoy building your projects , JIM
