Workbench Day 6: Short on time…

Didn’t get nearly what I wanted accomplished today.  Must have jinxed myself yesterday by posting a proposed timeline for the next few days.

All in all, I got 3 of the remaining 2x4s face-planed today, with minimal fuss and sweat and time.  In fact, I got them smooth in less than 30 minutes ( a new record for me!).  Which is good, because that was about all the time I had to spare today!

Sadly, that meant there was really no need to take pictures.  I have continued to make progress though—there are only 3 of the 2x4s left (finally) to face-plane.  That means tomorrow, I can set up the old Porter Cable circular-plane, er, saw, and cut off 1/2″ from the edge of the boards that need it, then finish off the remaining few with the hand plane.

With all my talk about patience, you may be wondering why I’m suddenly thinking about timelines and what to do tomorrow, etc.  Well, the Sky Fort will be shipping next week (!!) and the clock is running.  When that bad boy gets here it will be all hands on deck to put it together (sometime before it starts snowing!)…I’d like to have the workbench done so we can, I don’t know, have a place to work.

No pressure…
