Got the first run of purfling installed on the guitar I'm building. Hope to get the rest of it and the binding installed tomorrow.

I delivered the lamp I made and I chainsawed a few rough bowl blanks before it rained.

I finished machining the parts for an entry door I'm making and assembled it yesterday. Today I will get it sanded and ready for delivery.

I rebuilt a kitchen drawer for a client. Done a few errands downtown. Spent a little time at the scroll saw cutting more feathers for dream catchers. And finished figuring a bid, and got it turned in.

I went to the shop to make some drawers, but the router bit I purchased was a dang 3/8 shank. What is a 3/8 shank bit good for anyway? No problem just wrap some tape around the shaft to make it 1/2. Obviously kidding. I'm going to take it back and buy a 1/2 shaft bit.

I'm not sure but I think my HF router came with a 3/8" sleeve adapter. Personally I've never seen a bit with a 3/8" shank. There always seem to be someone inventing something to drive you nuts.

Some Euro router use 8 mm shanks:

They make adaptors:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Correct. All routers and router bits available here in India use 8mm shanks. 8mm to 12mm adapters are also available, but they may not fit 12.7mm (1/2") router bits.

Didn't do much today. Every project I attempted I needed some supplies. Then I tried to resume cutting a tree down from the top down however with the wind gusting 30 & 40 mph I chickened out.

Today I will be working on a honey do list for an old lady. Probably will change a bunch of light bulbs. This is usually what she has me do. I will have to touch up the epoxy paint on her garage floor.

For the window repair I had to make 2 straight mortise tenon and 1 mitered mortise tenon joints. Now my chisels and planes need to be re-sharpened. One chisel suffered injury from an embedded nail which was painted over. It will now have to be ground.

Last night I glued up some oak and IPE into a blank that I'm going to turn on the lathe to make a mallet. Going to try and get to that tonight. In the meanwhile I'm daydreaming of woodworking as I finish my second day of my first aid course. It's exciting cause it's the last step I need before I can submit my application for the local police department.

Started final sanding of my semi-sculpted outdoor bench. I say "semi-sculpted" because I did a lot of carving and softening of edges, took forever, and then one Google search of "Sam Maloof" brings me down to earth.

I hate signatures.
