  1. I'd recommend finding a friend instead. While it'll be pretty simple for a routine user of a table saw it's certainly not something that I'd take on as one of my first. Given your use of metric dimensions I'm going to guess that you're not in the CONUS or some of us might be able to help.
  2. I would have liked to hear the resulting great kitty meow/hiss after the bonk.
  3. I'm with Doug, there's no good or easy way to do this with CNC and it's definitely not required. I drew this up in CAD real quick just to rough out some of the missing dimensions (thickness, heal and toe angles) and I think you could make this out of a single piece of rough sawn lumber. I'll defer final species recommendations to others but finding 6" wide 5/4 oak might not be a bad place to start and not horribly expensive. To me the hardest part is figuring out how to do the bevel on the heal - best thought there is with a router after using a dado blade to hog out the underside. B
  4. 8-12" here, snow blower is gassed up, so is the generator, and there's bacon in the fridge.
  5. Thickness? I'm also trying to figure out if there is perspective in that drawing above or whether or not I'm looking at a flat plane (hence the graph paper background). Is that a section cut through the threshold? The view from the top? Side? Basically, I need more info.
  6. Post some dimensions, I doubt it'd fit on my CNC (roughly 40" x 40" cutting area) but not really sure CNC is the right tool for the job regardless. Thresholds are usually quite simple and I'd think you'd just want to do the corner like a picture frame since there's almost no chance that there's a big enough piece of hard wood to mill that 'J' shape out of. EDIT - and to answer one of your original questions, yes, it's a pretty big ask for a commercial wood shop to take on a small job like this. It's all risk, very little reward. You probably won't be happy about the price, strike one, if
  7. I'd wager they are all still just fine. I'd use it in good health.
  8. Happy Birthday to my New England partner in crime! Here's to hoping you had a great day @skullguise.

    That's tempting and I don't even know what I'd do with it!
  10. It's that time again... Separated the point from the flat so that I could do burnt ends tomorrow night from the point. Flat will be split across both nights since untrimmed this was a 14lb monster (not converting to kilos). I'd bet that I trimmed a good 4-5lbs of fat off of it.
  11. I think stopping with the track saw is an advisable plan. I can't (off the top of my head) think of a good reason to buy a table/cabinet saw if you're just wanting to bang out a few small projects. I mean d-_-b and all that but really, that's a huge amount of $ to spend on something that as you correctly assessed, will likely get in the way of life for 99% of the time.
  12. Debated on where to put this seeing as it is not scratch made dough, but figured it was bread based so this is where it landed. I had a leftover loaf of white bread and wanted French toast but did not want to deal with the hassle of making it piece by piece. The solution (which arguably was more work, but whatever...) was to make a casserole. It's a pretty standard recipe - eggs, milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla poured over cubed bread. The topping is just flour, more brown sugar, more cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, and cut with cold butter. Bake for an hour and voilĂ , bre
  13. I thought you were building another garage?

  15. Seems wise to wait. Me: Had epic fun mountain biking with some friends yesterday afternoon after bailing on work (was supposed to be off all day but...) with near perfect fall riding conditions - sunshine, 50F, light winds. We got out for a solid two hours of punishment in the local boulder field that has some pretty amazing features, most of which I actually rode. Today: will largely be spent watching it rain/snow. It's been raining hard for the last two hours already and is just getting started (allegedly). The weather people have played their 2020 cards and are claiming
  16. I meant to say something earlier, but if you let me know what size piece of glass I can see if it'd fit in the laser and we could have a go at etching your logo into it for enhanced fancy.
  17. I'd say router, so that you can put a finished edge on any of the exposed pieces of wood. Which really means that you need both a router and a bunch of router bits. I'm with Naaman, baltic-birch.
  18. I was thinking this and one does look a little domed in some of the pictures.
  19. Agreed, but this was at 350F and it was at 172 internal before I got it off the grill. Not horribly high, but the hope was to pull it at no more than 165 since it would continue to rise a bit.
  20. Happiest of birthdays, Bryan!
  21. Did a bone-in turkey breast on the Traeger today because life required more turkey. I cooked it just a little long (was not at home when the temp probe fired) and it was still moist and juicy on the inside.
  22. Success! The Loadout (went highish-end again this year, because d-_-b) Should be ok by Xmas
  23. How unflat? It wouldn't be all that surprising to find a wall 1/8" out of flat in say 4' or so but not more than that.
  24. I procured some but not all of the necessary supplies yesterday, I'll address remaining requirements tomorrow.
