Staying par for the course, it didn’t go all that smoothly.
The Lever Clamp
I started by cutting the 3 small pieces for the lever clamp.
I found it an odd experience using the new table saw to cut small pieces. The table is so smooth, even the insert plate, that I wasn’t really sure how hard to press down.
I mean, I know I don’t have to press down hard, but I had trouble getting enough tactile feedback so I could tell how hard I was pressing down. I’m sure I’ll get used to it, but it was unsettling.
After cutting the pieces, I drilled the holes. And forgot to turn on the camera. No big deal, but here we go again.
And while I was attaching the carriage bolts, using the cabinet door…
I managed to crack the door slightly, and also found out I didn’t add enough glue.
So I glued it back up, and I’m waiting for the glue to dry.
Hopefully, it’ll hold. Otherwise I’ll have to do some scrambling.
One downside of being on camera…
This morning, I started recording the intro for a new video. I may or may not publish the video - I’ll have to see as I go along. I’m not sure it’s a good subject or not. However, that’s not the point of this comment.
I don’t usually care much how I look. I just don’t look in the mirror that often. But that changes when I have to watch myself on camera, while I’m editing a video.
It’s hard to tell from a single frame, but my hair is all wacky, and I didn’t realize it.
So now I’m going to have to keep a mirror handy before I start shooting, to make sure I don’t waste my time. I have a camera monitor of course, but it’s too far away to get a good look at my hair.
I’m going to feel really silly pulling out a mirror before I start shooting. What’s next, make up?
