18 Mar 08
Hunt and I went to Woodworker's Supply this morning to get a pocket drill jig and some #10 biscuits to keep Ben busy on the tool cabinet first thing this morning. We pulled the sister part to the front suspension I-beam that we glued up yesterday, and it was a moderate success. I glued up some flat pieces to tie the 2 pieces together to form the I-beam, and Ben and Aaron came out to help me get it held down. We used our standard air-bag, I-beam, U-clamps technique seen in the leaf spring and many other areas. Hunt came back up after lunch and worked with Ben on the faceframe of the tool cabinet for most of the remainder of the day. Luke came out, and he and I worked on the hat section mold for the rear suspension. We glued up the last MDF chunks that we will have to dimension for use in the mold and glued up 2 new hold-down curtains for use in the mold. Luke left at about 7:30, and I came inside to eat and do some computer work. One of these tasks is among my favorites; the other not so much. I will let you guess which is which.
