Got a little done this weekend, spoons, more lamps, dust collection, more

Was kind of a "spastic no focus" weekend. While I didn't really complete any one project, I got one specific one (router cabinet) worked on, started the final on the ash lamps, made some more spoons, fixed that damn dust collector and ran some hard line, oh, made a blast gate, however, screw that, I'll pay the 6.00, hell I'll pay 10.00 for each gate as long as I don't have to do that again.

I'll have to come back, and edit this post, got pics on tablet, phone, and shop computer.

Bored, so I made a saw handle.
This is some old saw I found hiding

And the new handle I made from a scrap piece of walnut

Cut some new spoons, and at same time almost cut my pinkie off.



The last 2 lamps, ash and mahogany. Say, why does sanding mahogany seem like your sanding wet sand?.

Finally got off my lazy butt, took top off router cabinet, put the trim on it, cut the drawer pieces, and cut/attached top end trim.

Got tired of the DC not working right, dug up some left over PVC, and metal duct, proceeded to start the base for future ports, I'll never make another blast gate again.

It's all fun and games until someone loses the Walnut.
