I’ve been a bit lax in working on the family room lately, for a variety of reasons. Firstly we moved the couch and the TV into the room, which of course meant that I could now relax and enjoy my new skylights. Second, the new TV season has come around and laying on the couch watching TV just seems like more fun. Regardless last night I finally got off my duff and starting working on the 2nd part of the trim work. This includes the extension jams for the window, as well as the trim that goes around the pass through to the kitchen. It’s all been cut, sanded and has a coat of stain on it now.
I’ve been using this sturdy Craftsman tablesaw, that used to be my grandfathers. My mother tells me that he quit smoking for a year to save up for it, and I figure its getting near to 50 years old now. I bought a nice new blade for, and it works pretty well, however the blade does seem to wobble a bit. That means the cuts need a bit of sanding afterwards. I’m not sure if this can be fixed or not, but I’m going to poke around abit and see.
