Nothing huge right now. Had a former customer reach out about covering up an electrical panel in two rentals, and a basement laundry chute. I'm not really a cabinetmaker by trade (or by sales volume ) but I can make up some above average raised panel doors when I have to.

Got around to making my molding embossing machine. It's hand cranked using a pair of vice grips. No need to make anything fancy since I'll only be running 20' of molding.

Here's the machine


And here's the original molding, my molding and the molding without the embossing

Thanks for helping me drill those three holes in the wood.

And catching the wood out of the planer and molder.

Nice not to have to build boxes.

And I gotta say I've never built an embossing machine before.

Damn good day and week! Crane was on site at 8 and out of there at 10:30. Having the walls laid out, truss pile sorted, girders prepped, and trussloks make for efficient crane time.

Mini paulk station with 2- 6' wings is kikass and that flexvolt 12" fixed is just a beast. I fitted it with Bosch boot and now it has kapex level DC.
