Marking my lumber and taking it to my folks house. They have a miter saw and it should do a better job of squaring up the ends of the two by fours. And I can cut 3 at a time, so that helps too.

Hope to have the base and the top together before I need to go pick up my boy.

Got all my boards cut. Glad I used the miter, way better than I could have done with my tools.

Started on the base, but had to stop when my mom brought my son home.

My RO/DI unit came today, VERY NICE. All in all a good day, would have like to have gotten further, but had to come to work early. I don't work Friday night so I should get the stand itself framed tomorrow.

sweet dave!

good to hear the day went well.

i wish i had a miter saw, if i did, i'd have less finsihing work to do. i have one but it's the manly type, you know, a plastic box, and a hand held saw :) i dont mind using it for trim boards, but cutting up 10 2x4's and 10 2x2 with a hand saw...forget it!!

Well, tomorrow after I get the stand portion framed up, I might borrow my step fathers camera and take a couple shots of it so I have something to show for.

Im getting the itch bad now though, the RO/DI showed up, and tomorrow I am expecting the "Urchin, Mag 12, Heaters, test kits, and power heads". That should all show up via UPS tomorrow. After that I'll be a snowball rolling down hill.

Back to work I reckon, planning on waking up super early and getting to the garage.
