The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

A two inch cutting board on a table saw

Now that Bunny's brother has received his gift, I can talk about it. This past Monday on a whim, Bunny made this tiny cutting board:

[Under 2″ in each direction—told you it was small]

The thing was, she made this with her table saw! You know, this huge monsterous thing with a 12″ or 14″ circular blade o'death spinning at a bazillion revolutions per second? Yeah, she made this teeny little cutting board with that.

But she made it to test out the capabilities of a new piece of equipment she bought—the Micro Jig GR-100 GRR-Ripper. It's a pretty amazing device used to push wood around and through the many spinning blades o'death that lurk in the wood shop (in our case, the garage). We've seen it used enough times (yes, we watch Steve Ramsey every week) that Bunny felt it might be worth getting.

And yes, it was worth getting. The demonstration videos that come with it are astounding (most impressive to me was cutting dados in a dowel). In fact, she was so impressed that she got a GRRR-Ripperfor her brother, and sent along the cutting board as an example of the type of work possible when using it.

Obligatory Miscellaneous

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

http://boston.conman.org/2000/08/01

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
