    At a depth of 1/8", that's when the battery of my electric drill decided that it needed to be charged.
    Aha, but a pro always carry a spare battery or two. No excuse, my dear !!!!!

    DON'T go back to smoking, no matter what the FDA does.
    Going back to smoking will be a huge loss for you, in more ways than one.

    That is frustrating when you're on a roll and want to get it done, but the battery will charge, and then you can go back to it. Try to go with the flow. Could this be a message that you really should be doing something else? I usually have a whole list of things I should be doing instead of what I choose to do, and when something like that happens to me, I take it as a sign that I really should be attending to business. Maybe you're different. Maybe you always put business before pleasure, but I don't, so that's the message I would get from something like that happening.

    Can't remember if I posted the design here or not. CRS. The design has changed somewhat due to the fact that, apparently 8" ready-made shelves are not actually 8".

    I know, I know. But the battery for the derned thing costs $39. And, I have more patience than money at the moment.

    Raw wood is always measured, before it's been planed. An 8" board is in reality a 7 -3/4" inch board.

    I've been holding off making this until I got my business taken care of. My Medicare situation had to be re-assigned for the new year and I got the holidays in the rear view mirror. The shelving material was a Christmas gift from my daughter, the Forstner bits were a gift from my son, and the drill was a gift from my BF. Couldn't wait to use them all! We used the stuffin' out of the drill because it has an impact head attachment that was marvelous for installing that railing.

    Guess this means that I should talk with you folks instead!

    Oh, I know. And they keep changing the sizes on me! When we built the house, I had the actual size of a 2x4 memorized, but then they changed the standards yet again. The board for my Mod/PV holder is a finished shelving board that is ready to mount, so I thought that it would actually be the size on the label. Wrong!

    I'm in on the group hug!!!!!

    At least my virtual neighbors don't have me chasing dogs around the neighborhood. What am I? The dog catcher? Geez, I'm sick, I want a nap and I'm out chasing the two cutest little doggies ever. I only got one in my yard and I finally gave up on the other one. I hope the owner gets home soon.I hate to see them get lost or hurt.

    Penny Poo Poo does not appreciate the company. She barked him all over and then she came to the dog door like "My job here is done. You may let me in the house now."

    Did the dog you caught have some kind of ID tag? If not, how will you find out the owner?
