Boat Work, Wood Work and Riding

UPS Freight delivered the new table saw, a Grizzly G0715P, last Wednesday afternoon. We transferred it from the truck to our utility trailer and, from there, to the shop floor. Set up took a couple of hours - including reassembling the mobile base a couple of times before we got the casters installed properly.

The saw is an impressive machine. And the accuracy, right out of the box, is impressive, too.

The major drawback to having a new saw is finding enough time each day to work on Gardens, do some woodworking in the shop and putting in some miles on my bicycle. That last is important as I am gearing up for a two-day, 150-mile ride in about two weeks - and I haven't ridden nearly enough this spring and summer. More time in a day would be nice, but we all get the same 24 hours each day. Hopefully, a workable routine will soon evolve…

In the meantime, progress continues with fairing the strakes. Why does a task always seem to take longer to complete than I think/wish/hope it should?
