30 Projects in 30 Days: #26 0 comments

Oct 7, 2013 | ,
Well, after suffering a router loss (internet router, not woodworking router, ha!) last week I’m finally able to get back in the game with the projects. Worst though, I had to finally have a long talk with Lincoln. His need to be 2 inches away from me at all times came to a screeching halt last week when he tripped me as I was going down the stairs. Luckily I didn’t break anything but I managed to twist both my ankles at the same time. Love him but sometimes he makes me want to scream.

Project #26. Alphabet books. I started cutting out these books with the bandsaw last week, and only got about 5 done. R. D. C. E, N. Mother is *hopefully* fixing the binding on M. My goal would be to do all 26 letters, but hey, that won’t work, because how on earth would you do a letter X? There would be no binding to hold it all together. I got up this morning with the notion of doing about 4 more, but can’t get the d#*@ bandsaw to work right. It won’t cut worth a crap now, for some reason. I put in a new blade, did some adjustments, etc. etc. and - nothing. So, I’m going to chalk it up to the books themselves being the problem. Maybe there is a difference in the papers, binding, glues, etc. that just won’t allow these to cut straight. Oh well. I will have to get my hands on some more old books and see what comes of it. Maybe the saw is just cold from the weekend. I know I am.
