So Tice removed a deck at his job site, which is Armistead Maupin's former home. In his genius he recognized it to be Brazilian Ipe that was only screwed down from one side. The new owner eventually a

Just put up some shelves and cabinets in the shop space preparing for making things again!

The Cherry is lighter than the speakers, but will darken quickly next to the window. I have a vented front plate coming for the top space. The cooling fan sits in that space, and is really quiet.

To Nate’s comment...

Wow, I’m now thinking of a smaller version I could inflate to do smaller jobs. 

I’ve seen the popup ones they use for spray tanning, but there a bit too small.

Finally opened up the fancy little honing thing from Lie-Nielsen. Seems to be slightly better quality than the $20 Rockler one.

IWO.thumb.JPG.1c8204aa4f9d99eb1fa5991d71967f16.JPGMade a IWO badge for a friend's wife's retirement. Maple machines SO much better than walnut. Going to be doing some NFO wings this weekend in Cherry. Still have another 50 Army ones to do. 🤦‍♂️

How's the Cherry milling?

Really well, almost as good as maple. Walnut sucks, I should have my unsteamed walnut next week. Curious if that makes any difference on how it machines.

Visited an open house down the street. Should I try to buy all of this?

Dude made some pretty cool giant trains as a hobby I guess. The drill press could come in handy. Also has ton of vintage microscopes from the old parent company of Leica.

Maybe just buy the house as well - will solve your space problems.

I told the realtor I would take the 3 car garage with the shop above but did not need the house.  They did not think the owner would go for that.

the lathe is very decent, and capable of cutting screw threads if you ever need that. even though its early 1960's vintage. the other stuff is not capable of anything of high accuracy. at least not without digital readouts.

And its heavier than it looks. just the lathe top is probably about 700 lbs

If you find a wealthy enough customer, Ebony mills like a dream.
