      Nothing much today, ran a couple of errands and fiddled a little in the wood shop. I don't have a dado stack and I've been trying to figure out if I can cut dadoes without a stack. The answer is yes, but it's a bit of a hassle. I want to be able to cut box joints, ideally without running things back and forth multiple times through the table saw.

      I'm going to need to build a jig to cut the box joints, so will need another piece of plywood. The only plywood I have available is a nicer grade that I'd use to make boxes, rather than build jigs for cutting things up. So I need a sheet of cheaper grade plywood, and most likely a dado stack. Perhaps as an interim measure I'll botch together a couple of smaller offcuts to make a jig that will kinda-sorta do - I already cut a couple of sleds to go in the grooves of my table saw out of a couple of offcuts I had floating about. Maybe I'll make a couple more of them, so I can throw together a few jigs to do fun stuff. Before long I need to make a jig to cut picture frames - I'd really like to make some frames that match the woodwork in the house.

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      Need to rethink my jig for making box joints. I cobbled something together but it wasn't as stable as I need it to be. I'd tried to use too many offcuts, what I need is a base that's the complete length of the jig, rather than trying to cut corners with small sleds supporting a long jig. I also cut new sleds, because the old ones had too much wiggle room in the channels (that was part of the problem, as well as nothing else being up to the job). Part of the problem was that I was trying to make precise cuts based on pushing things through the table saw with a sacrificial rod, and sadly it doesn't make for a precise cut. The wood has too much scope to wiggle a little, which means it ends up getting cut just very slightly narrower than I want it to be. And when a tight fit is important, if it's meant to be 3/4" thick and is actually 23/32" thick it wiggles enough to be unfit for purpose.

      Rather annoyingly I've got a pile of offcuts I salvaged from a local woodworking store's trash pile, and every single one of them is just a whisker too thick to be suitable, yet not big enough (they are offcuts, after all!) to be suited for feeding through the table saw to trim off the excess. Maybe I'll ask a friend if I can use his planer, that would do the job nicely.

      Yes, humid atm, but I use air conditioning and have experienced the problem even when it is dry. Now I'm getting half or unrisen loaves every time. They actually rise further on the initial rise as can be seen from the cooked dough stuck around the perimeter higher up the pan, but the finished product is below that. My bread maker recipes don't call for active yeast, but unless I activate it first by putting it in luke-warm sugar water, the bread doesn't rise at all. It seems I might need another bread maker or opt for making it another way.
