Cleaning up loose ends - follow up to the Shopsmith storage cabinet

So I have been away from blogging for a while (obviously making projects) so I revisted the site and realized I had a comment on what the finished Shopsmith cabinet looked like in place.  Here are the resulting pics:

And here it is in place under the Shopsmith.

I'm not entirely satisfied with the storage because some stuff fits, some doesn't.  I'll fine tune this over time.

To accommodate my jointer, I decided to make this little sled to hold it in place.

The sled for the  jointer makes it easier to get it in and out.

I have a few saw blades . . . wow.

New project - KyotoCruiser

So we recently sold our Mazda Miata.   It needed a lot of front end bodywork that would have been very cost prohibitive, if we were going to spend much time and energy we decided we would be better off with something we wanted to fix up.   We looked at a few project cars but then decided to build a bike instead.  

So after doing some research we went to the web site and purchased six bike plans.  The one we settled on is called the KyotoCruiser and it is a side by side recumbent bike.
