Is that harden safety glass?
It works great. Cedar has a lot of personality to it so you will most likely use more material in making things. Some boards will be useless and others will pose a challenge but they are very pretty. Not a very strong wood but I think it's one of the most interesting there is. Made a lot of lanterns, unaboxes, and wooden cups, Ranger Derby cars and belt buckles to name a few. Cedar air dries faster than most woods. When you first cut it it will fill spongy and make you wonder if it will ever be any good. Then in about 6 months in good air drying conditions it will be good to go. It needs to be kept stacked nice and flat or it will warp up fast. I have resawn several pick up loads of Cedar into boards and let them air dry. FUN and folks love the products.
I went in to buy one of those sanders. They were out 3 weeks in a row. Even Grizzly has been out of them for almost 3 months. Supposed to be in this month.Yesterday, I unpackaged some stuff I bought at Harbor Freight. Spent $439. The main items I bought was their 6 x 48 belt Sander with the 9" Disc. With the discount, it went down to $200 plus $50 for a 2 year extended Warranty. So, I am guaranteed 2 good years with it for around $250. Now all I a good drum sander..
Also bought 2 spray guns on sale. One is a conventional gun and the other is with the cup on top and is HVLP. They were cheap enough and should hold me for now.
Also bought some bar clamps and other misc. stuff.
Major problems cropped up with my RV and that has been consuming most of my time.
Finished assembly this morning and mounted it on a dolly. The extra height of the dolly made it more comfortable to use.I went in to buy one of those sanders. They were out 3 weeks in a row. Even Grizzly has been out of them for almost 3 months. Supposed to be in this month.
