Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! Today I’m partnering with @mountaindew to turn my empty DEW cans into something fun. Because what's better than a DEW Dad making doodads on Father's Day? 😀 I pretty much run on Diet DEW (or the "elixir of life" as I like to call it) and if you love it as much as I do then build your own doodad and share it with me and MTN DEW using #FixThisDoThat. Let's see what you got! #adA great way to maximize storage in a small closet. Mount sliders to the wall! #woodworking #storage #organization #diyThe final home for the CNC isn't quite ready yet. Lucky the work table is mobile and I've got a nice little nook I can stash it in for a little bit. What's the over/under on how long it stays in this exact spot? 😜 #temporarysolution #permanentresult #fixthisbuildthatHere's a little teaser of my latest video on making a cheap and easy DIY Work table. Check the whole video on my YouTube channel! Mine is 48"x40". How big do you like your assembly or work tables? Think I need a longer one for assembly. #woodworking #table #fixthisbuildthatSo I've got a little secret...I didn't make that DIY work table (video in bio) for assembly or outfeed. It's for my new CNC! I got an @inventables X-carve CNC all setup on it now. I finished the assembly yesterday and just need a little calibration now. There are A LOT of parts, but they're all labeled very well and the instructions and online resources made it a fairly straightforward, though involed process. The engineer in me really enjoyed it 😀. Stay tuned for some CNC assistance on future projects! Any great first time CNC projects I should try? #cnc #xcarve #inventablesTruck work! I’m taking off the front wheel on Big Blue to check out a faulty ABS sensor. 13 year old trucks are great but they need maintenance on the reg. I’m always working on something on this bad boy and reliable trucks don’t take an offseason. If you didn’t see my earlier post, I’ve partnered with @mobil1 to tell you about a deal on Mobil 1™ motor oil. Their oil doesn’t take an offseason either and protects your engine to keep your ride running smooth. Right now you can get a free custom mini NBA basketball with your team’s logo with a 5 quart purchase at @AdvanceAutoParts. Head to mobil1.US/freeNBAball to learn more about the promo and shop the deal. I’ve got direct swipe up links in my story today as well. Don’t forget to protect your truck (or car) with consistent oil changes! #sponsoredNeed a CHEAP and EASY work table for the shop? I just launched a video on how to make this one with a few 2x4s and a sheet of MDF. It's 48x40 and perfect for assembly, outfeed, or even...a CNC 😀. You can check out the video and get the free plans too over at my YouTube channel (link in bio). #worktable #shoporganzation #fixthisbuildthatSeeing @ashleyharwoodturning crushing it on the lathe this week really made me want to jump back on some turning. My last time on the lathe it looked like I got in a fight with Spiderman...and lost. #epoxy #turning #fixthisbuildthatI'm editing the video today for a cheap and easy work table (video coming Sunday). Y'all know I love well placed screws, so laying out, predrilling, and driving the screws for the MDF top was kind of fun and pretty #satisfying 😍I’m doing some spring cleaning in the shop to make room for the new CNC projects! Big Blue is getting loaded up to move out some donations. I don’t give my truck any offseason, it’s constantly hauling wood, junk and whatever else I can think of. I've partnered with @mobil1 to tell you about a great deal on Mobil 1™ motor oil if you buy 5 quarts at @AdvanceAutoParts. Their oil doesn’t take an offseason either and protects your engine to keep your ride running smooth. Right now you can get a custom mini NBA basketball gift with purchase. Check out mobil1.US/freeNBAball to learn more about the promo and shop the deal. I’ve got direct swipe up links in my story today as well. Save some dough and protect your truck (or car)! #sponsoredAt the @woodcraftgallery trade show today checking all the awesome tools available and coming to Woodcraft. Also watching @jorybrigham_design and @john_malecki building some dart board cabinets and @ashleyharwoodturning doing some turning demos. I on the other hand am just taking pictures 😀. #woodcraft #tradeshowBreaking down sheet goods is a dream with a track saw. Probably could find a better way to get it off the ground, but using rigid foam insulation in the driveway works great. And I'm loving the dust collection on the @kregjig ACS saw. Plowing through MDF with hardly any dust shooting out using just the dust bag. It's a major upgrade over the Accu-cut for sure 👍 #sheetgoods #nomatchforme #fixthisbuildthat
