  • yet another senior moment......sigh

    It must be the moon or something.... it cant be me (lol)

    We remodled the second floor a while back, and i needed to put back the last of the doors i had stored in the garage. Now we got rid of two old closets, but i kept the doors. So i have three doors only one will fit.

    I lined up all the doors and put the door knobs on the right.
    For over an hour im looking at the doors trying to figure out why i dont have the right one left. Standing in the room i need the door to open in and right to left. All the doors open OUT. Only two should open out, NOT all three.

    It cant be, we didnt take the door frames out, we didint throw any door away, we didnt give any door away, i should have three doors and one that fits.

    Im going nuts.....cant be....... how could it.......i dont understand

    Then urika ..... my brain kicked in overtime and all the brain cells came alive
    i have solved the problem.........i am a genius.

    one door is upside down........duh!!.......

    too embarrased to tell you who i am...... me

      I am a natural blonde and a senior citizen. Now, I have senior moments. I have always had blonde moments. My biggest trouble is when they happen at the same time. Katy bar the door when that happens.

        He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

        Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

        I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...
