Here’s my blog posts for Steve Ramsey’s “Powered Up” online course:

So I’ve decided what I’m going to do next. I’m going to split time between editing the footage from the first Powered Up project, and starting what is actually the third Powered Up project, the Benchtop Router Table.
I finally hung up my tools. Not like I’m quitting - I actually hung them up… on the pegboard. But you already knew that, in spite of my poor attempt at being clever. 😏
I spent the day finishing up my new video. It’s uploading right now. I’ll be back to normal blogging tomorrow.
NOTE: This post is intentionally long, to give you some feel for how many details there are in some seemingly simple tasks. If you don’t want to wade through everything, just scroll to the bottom to see the results. But you’ll be missing out on all the fun!
Short post today. Things took longer than I’d hoped, but here we are:
I finally got the hinges on, at least enough to show whether the doors are the right size or not (they are):
I’m not sure if this is a review of a portion of Steve Ramsey’s “Powered Up” online course, or a rant from someone who’s just frustrated. Also, to be clear, Steve is a better YouTuber than I’ll ever hope to be, but that doesn’t mean I can’t criticize, right? I mean, I’d criticize myself in the exact same way, so why cut Steve some slack?
So what happened yesterday, and why didn’t I post about it? By the time the day was done, I was worn out and just wanted to go to sleep, and start over fresh, today.
Yes, this is a post saying there isn’t a post. I’ll explain why in the next post, which will hopefully be tomorrow.
Got lots of good work done today. It’s starting to look an awful lot like a cabinet!
Yes, “stuff” happens, and it happened a lot today.
Anyone else feel like this is taking me forever? Part of the problem is I have other things that I need to do at the same time. Even so, I still can’t believe this isn’t done yet. Sigh.
Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of days. I had a video to get out. And I feel another video coming on…
I’m starting to question the structural integrity of the changes I’m making to this cabinet. What, you thought I was questioning Steve’s integrity? Perish the thought! I don’t know Steve personally, but he strikes me
as incredibly integral as having boatloads of integrity. It’s my choices that are under scrutiny here.
Yes, with the help of my wife, I actually cut some wood tonight! 4 pieces of plywood. 4 PIECES! Are you impressed yet?
Yes, I’m still tweaking the SketchUp model for this project. First of all, I’m extremely anal when it comes to stuff like this. For instance, a while ago I made Baltic Birch textures, including the end grain, running both vertically and horizontally. If you want to download them, let me know because I’ve got updated textures I haven’t uploaded to 3D Warehouse.
Don’t worry, “change of plans” doesn’t mean I’m not going to continue blogging or anything. It literally means I changed the plans. The project plans.
