A quick post to talk about what I’ve been working on, what I’m going to be working on, and perfectionism.
This post is about how my ADD affects my woodworking. I’ve mentioned this subject before, and in fact some of this text is from a previous post. But I’m going to be expanding on this in the near future, so I thought I’d talk about it again. If you find this information useful, please share this post.
I just passed 50,000 subscribers a few hours ago. Amazing. Thank you everyone! And my video on CutList Optimizer has over 50k views in less than a week, 99.6% likes vs. dislikes, and over 470 comments. For my videos, that’s about as good as it gets in less than a week. I expect it to continue to do well, until YouTube decides they don’t like me anymore. Read on for an explanation.
Sorry it’s been a while since I uploaded a blog post. I can’t say for sure why I haven’t been posting, but I want to remedy that. Here’s a start.
I just finished editing a new video, and uploading it to YouTube. The video has some closeups of my SawStoP PCS’s cast iron table top, which means that all the ugly scratches were brought out front and center. Don’t bother looking for them in the video, though, because I edited them out using various masking techniques. Why did I edit them out? Read on to find out.
Let’s go sleuthing! We’re going to uncover the secrets of a SawStop brake, like how it knows if the blade touched your finger or just a nail. And we’ll discover that it’s not as simple as we thought. So if you think you know everything there is to know about how, when, and why a SawStop brake gets triggered, Wait! There’s more!
It seems everyone and their brother are recommending this blade, so I thought I’d give it a try.
I made MAJOR progress over the last few days, even if I did have to build the drawer 3 times before I was satisfied with it.
I finally managed to get back to working on the router table. Today I added the melamine top.
Steve Ramsey announced on Instagram a couple of days ago that he’s opening up his “Powered Up” online course for enrollment again. And of course I don’t have the review video ready. It would have been nice if Steve had given me a heads up. 😛 (Just kidding - Steve has no idea who I am, I’m sure.)
