Drawer progress

?AMade some progress on the bed build this weekend. Got the boards for two drawers milled and got the drawers cut and the dovetails done. Accidentally cut the bottoms short so I have to redo that tomorrow but I’m still satisfied with what I got done. 

  

Jointer dialed in

So as I suspected the jointer blades were not parallel to the table. The blades (at least one) were higher toward the outside of the jointer bed causing the creation of a trapezoidal workpiece when jointing the first face. I thought that I had been pretty careful when I installed the new knives but I didn’t realize that they were moving when I tightened the locking nuts. I went over each one tonight and made sure they were parallel and dead even with the outfeed table. I jointer a sample and it came out perfect. Time to get back to making drawers tomorrow. 

New website

Moved my site from Squarespace to Bluehost strictly based on cost and friends recommendations. This was a great move for me because it really motivated me to actually do something with my site and Weebly and WordPress plugins really made it easy.
