Ok, we've got a pop quiz tonight. this is the 2 x 3 that is attached to the back wall.

Why is there a slot in the upright on the back wall?

Yea, that was easy, wasn't it? Lol.

I had mentioned earlier that I wanted to do something like this....

Although, mine will be totally contained inside, instead of behind the wood wall, it will still close off the entire window.

Well, I am glad this week is over. Lol. Hopefully, next week will be slower, and I will be able to spend more time working on the moho.

On the bright side, you may remember, that with our replacement Pt Cruiser, the passenger side front seat did not fold down completely like the one that was wrecked. SOOOOOOO,...

I swapped out the seats from the 04 to the replacement 02, and now I can haul 8 foot lengths of stock up to about 2 ft wide. In addition, the 04 rear seats have head rests, which the 02 did not have originally.

Soon time to get rid of the 04, since I am about done taking parts off of it. Wahoo!!!

Next up will be to pick up some plywood that I can use for the counter top, which will house the sink, on the drivers side.

Be careful with the plywood you buy. Have seen some complaints on woodworking forums about plywood from China with outgassing from the glue and delamination issues. US sourced plywood has not had those complaints.

Thanks. There is a local lumber yard, that handles plywood that is not made abroad. I am going to check with them to see what they have available.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I forgot to update the spreadsheet for the lumber I bought.

We had a total of 8534.54, and the 2 x 3's and one 2 x 6 amounted to 14.59.

New grand total is 8549.13.

Really lousy day today. Rain, sleet, snow, freezing rain. Yea, I decided to stay inside and just take it easy.

Call me a wuss if you want to... Lol.

Wahoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally! It looks like things are slowing down a little bit. I am glad that Thanksgiving is over - only because of the extra work for my niece.

Been a wild ride for the last few days. I think I can get some work done tomorrow on the moho.

I am having withdraw symptoms here. Lol.

On the other hand, I ran across something where someone was using his head. Evidently, this guy used his table saw for sawing AND cutting dado's.

In order to simplify the setup, and not to have to switch blades back and forth, his solution was to join 2 table saws, side by side, one with a saw blade, and the other with a dado setup.

What a concept! For someone who does very little switching back and forth, this would be a waste. But for doing a lot of it, this would work very well.

Hope to have a better update tomorrow.

Well, I finally made a step in the right direction. I spent money today! Lol.

I bought a piece of plywood to use as a base for the counter. I placed it in a temporary way to have a look at how might look if installed in it's current position.

After having a look at this, and taking a couple of measurements, I might make a couple of small changes.

In this pic, the right side is towards the front of the moho. The distance between the 2 arrows is about 2 feet.

Currently, the end of the counter is about mid way between the 2.

The plywood is 8 ft long, so cutting off 1', would line up the end of the counter with the front of the wheel well box.
