I went to a local machine supply store the other day for a new mallet for woodworking. While browsing, I happened upon 1/2" router bits for making "Birdsmouth" notches in wood. I never thought such a thing was made, i was intending on making a jig for my router table that would angle the plank. Well so much for that plan. I struck a deal with the clerk and got the box of 3 sizes, one for 6, 8 , and 12 sided objects for a decent price.
on another note, I have a fair amount of wood now drying in my basement. i'll need to get it out in the sun from time to time to aid the drying process.
