Stupid mistakes!
May 19th, 2015 at 8:35am
 
Last night I was working on my router table build. I had to cut a dado centered on one side, and two on the top. Yup, had three on one side. Tried to salvage it. Turned the piece over and re-cut the center dado... Yup, measured off the wrong side of the blade. There goes $30 worth of cabinet grade oak plywood!

All I can say is, I'm pretty sire you'll never make that mistake again.
Unfortunate painful lesson, we've all done something similar at one time or another.

Oh, I measured more than twice!  Snuck out tonight and grabbed another piece of plywood. Mistakes are now destroyed! My wife asked if it wouldn't have been cheaper to buy a ready made table. I don't get it... What's a ready made table?   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy[size=14][/size]

Reminds me of the old adage, "I've cut this board three times and it's still too short!"

Just one the results of working while tired. BTDT too many times.
