#Protip. If you are running a router that doesn’t have dust collection. .
.
Get 4 zip ties, a 3 inch dust port. Drill holes on the end of the tip. Insert zip ties and tighten around edge guide holes. Use 2 more to secure upper portion and there ya go! Redneck DIY!!

A little Friday night work playing with the full overlay hinges. .
.
Took a bit of messing around but got them figured out. First time install, did a few story boards first to help out.
.
.
Can’t wait to finish this up!

A little behind the scenes of today’s interior photo shoot for a construction company. .
.
If I can’t be in the shop, I’ll be working taking architectural photos for clients of their builds!

Out picking up some lumber for this weeks project. .
.
Thought I’d check out the tool aisle and see if there was any new toys out . .
.
Anyone ever tried out the new @ryobipowertools cordless pin nailer? I’d love to hear if it’s worth it to buy. Looks pretty sweet!!!!

One of my goals this year is to learn @sketchup_official. I’ve been hand drawing ideas and either wasting supplies or not getting enough. I’ve heard great things and am definitely gonna tackle this ASAP! .
.
Seems every person I follow on YouTube or Instagram is killing it with sketch up. .
.
Thanks @joshua_luther for posting about fusion to remind me to get sketch up!

It’s the countdown to Christmas and New Years! Final crunch on work and projects!
.
.
Remember the holidays aren’t all about material things, It’s about friends and family!
.
.
“Be excellent to each other” as a wise duo once said.
.
.
Be safe and have a great holiday!

So much room for activities!!!
.
.
Finally finished up the work table/ outfeed.
.
.
Still need to add some drawers and shelves for storage. But this is a good start. Now I have somewhere to work!
.
.
Gonna be nice to have everyone all in one place so when I’m done working I can wheel it back in and no clean up!

It’s Small Business Saturday! .
.
Remember to shop small and shop local! .
.

By spending money in your local business’ your not paying for a CEO’s vacation house, but your helping keep local craftsman and artisans in business! .

Outfeed/Work Table coming along nicely. .
.
Now only if @loweshomeimprovement would get their rental truck working I could get some plywood home to finish this!
.
.
Still need to mount the miter saw and do some cut outs so I can flip it. Also going to build in some shelves and some drawers. I have some cool ideas for this! Can’t wait!

Ever just need to clean up and organize? Just felt good to put everything away, sweep and organize this weekend. .
.
Also saged the workshop, the old ‘55 and it has a much calmer feeling now after the stress of the last project. .
.
Now that everything’s clean it’s time to work on the new outfeed/work table. I have some designs in mind, but gonna keep it simple and add storage and features as I go. .
.
After a project what do you like to do? Do you thrive in a messy shop? Or do you need to reboot and start from scratch? .
