Save Those 'scraps' !!
« on: May 05, 2016, 02:49:13 PM »
When building 6-5/8 supers, we have to rip a so-called 1 x 8 which is actually 1 x 7-1/4

Save the ripped bits and use them as the rim around your bottom boards.

They are admittedly a bit narrower than the 'ideal' 3/4, but you could probably kick in the Fudge Factor and make the 6-5/8's closer to 6-1/2 and no one, not even the bees, will notice or care.

Born and raised in Southern IL..........100 % Kraut town of Columbia IL

4 churches and 9 taverns

Gr-Gr-Grandfather came over from 'Der Fatherland'  in 1844 @ age 22, drafted into 155th IL Infantry in late 1864, escaped seeing any action other than guarding the railroad between Louisville and Nashville into summer of 1865.  Came back home and raised a few more kleine krauts.

My last contract was in Poland for a couple of years but before that I was in Germany for eight years and loved it, so much history but when I left there I had gained forty pounds.  The schnitzel and fries are really great but they will put the weight on and the sweets were great also great.
