Ka-Pow

For the last few days, I have spent a couple of hours cleaning my shop.  I need some physical activity to keep me from going insane during the recovery from this flu. Each day, I came up from the man-cave and had to take a nap. Today, I didn’t. That’s progress. While I was moving stuff around yesterday, I unboxed a base cabinet that I had reserved for my bathroom. Most builders put the cabinets in place without modification. My bathroom has multiple angled walls and needs special cabinets.

After the cabinet was out of the box I examined it for how to proceed. The neurons were working full force, and within a few minutes, I disassembled a perfectly great cabinet in order to modify it to my specs.  I spent most of the day cutting, fitting, glueing, and screwing the pieces back together. The cuts kept getting fancier, and on the last cleat I had to tilt the saw blade at an extreme angle. I turned on the machine and got a tremendous flash and ka-pow. The lights went out. I haven’t blown a fuse on a machine in over forty years. Oddly enough, I had not even put the wood on the table yet. The machine did not like the set up.

Now, I have a new problem to solve, i.e. what went wrong with the saw? In the meantime, I’ll finish the job with hand tools.
