  1. Mix of wood and metal in the shop for the next week as I work to build a command gift for my boss. Turnover is this week into next with the Change of Command officially next Tuesday. I copied the ammodor concept since you cannot simply order one and have it delivered reliably and I guess because I can. So far it's coming out alright, more difficult to do what I want to than expected. Today's lesson - CNC's let you fuck stuff up with precision. Most mistakes have been recoverable, but time consuming. Only thing photo worthy so far is the custom panel for the inside of the top cover which houses the hygrometer and humidity packs. The box that goes in the box is glued up and curing. The tray that will nest into the box-in-the-box is also glued up as of 20 minutes ago. The bottom panel for each will get a laser-engraved logo, hopefully tomorrow night.
  2. Happy Birthday!
  3. Belated happy birthday wishes, Shelly!
  4. I cannot get Disturbed - Down with the Sickness (strictness) out of my head.
  5. Just curious why someone would choose to spend $2500 on that router instead of a small CNC rig? I guess I need to watch some vids of how it works but at first blush, I don’t get it.
  6. I swear I started this thread this morning and having been offline most of the day, didn't get back to d-_-b till now to see that I failed. Happy birthday, Jeffy! I hope it was a good one.
  7. Happy birthday, Doug!
  8. I came here today to start this thread three times but stupid work. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AL!!! I hope that today is a great one and that you find an appropriately awesome way to celebrate another trip around the sun. I will drink to your good health later tonight.
  9. Back at the east coast ping pong table, making engineer of the year plaques for work.
  10. Steve, If you want, look into whether or not someone has designed a jig that can be 3d printed to help you out. You've got multiple friends with printers, you know. 😉 A quick search (5 seconds) says maybe. https://www.thingiverse.com/search?q=lockset&page=1&type=things&sort=relevant
  11. You are in a strange timezone my friend. And thanks all for the well wishes. It was a nice low-key evening with the family after a long week at work. No big presents, but that's the complication of getting old and having hobbies that do not lend themselves to others shopping for you.
  12. Happy Birthday, Craig!
  13. Nice job @Pars - there are few things as satisfying as finding and fixing a problem that plagues you like that on a DIY build.
