Spring tune ups

I gotta take a pause on the tool chest build because…well….spring! I wanted to get this out as it is seasonally appropriate. Winter is over and it’s time to get ready for the warmer weather and undo some of the things that go with winter. A whole slew of handy tips and things that will make life just a little easier. I gotta say, this is pretty much my favourite time of the year.

Tool Chest Pt 3

We come to the part that I am nervous about. Building drawers intimidate me. I probably over think it. First I make a prototype. Then, once I get that fitting, I use it for a pattern and set up jig for the rest of them.

Tool Chest Pt 2

I get the carcass completed and put together.  The I get it put into place.  Quite a bit of work done and it turns out fine.

My editing software just went through a major upgrade, so I am back on a bit of a learning curve with it again.  It is supposed to be simpler, but once you get accustomed to doing things a certain way, change is difficult.  I find I am doing a lot more colour correction and using DVE's to try and get the shots looking better and focused on the work.  The new upgrade makes that easier and it is another toy in my bag of tricks.  It does make the editing process a bit longer, but I think the quality has a slight improvement.  Although it will probably go unnoticed....lol.

Tool chest build

I need to clear a spot in my shop to continue insulating and sheathing the walls. I want to get rid of my tool chest, so I am making a built in unit to replace it. I start with making the sides of the chest.
