SMHH&H's Newport office today so they can get it to their Morristown office for a service this evening. Therefore I was out before dawn to wrap and load it into the truck so Marie could take it with her when she goes to work this morning.
I received confirmation later in the morning that the hand-off went well and it was on it's way to Morristown. I always feel better when a piece arrives safely.
Parts for the Grizzly have been ordered but until they arrive I'm pretty much sitting on my thumbs. I can't dress rough lumber without a surface planer.
The longer pieces were side/shelf parts and need only a little wood removed to dress them out nicely. The shorter pieces were split in half to make two shelf blanks and they need to have about 1/8" taken off. How can I keep working?
The jointer will remove excess wood and smooth the second face, but would do nothing toward making sure the piece is a consistent thickness throughout the piece. Since the shelves mount in grooves cut in the side pieces making them precisely the right thickness and a consistent thickness is very important.
Thanks for watching, I'll see you tomorrow!
