Thanks, Stud; Yes I have my fair share of the anal-retentive gene. :D


Been a bit long between updates; but Jan was flat strap, and I am currently away from the shop until early April.

I did get all the fold-able lip installed along the three edges of the top over xmas. (sorry no photos… forgot to take some before I left)

So now it is just down to electrics and paint.

Will give another update in April.

Cheers,

Sorry for the long delay between posts, spent a lovely few months in NSW working remote to get out of the heat (albeit the fires have cause their fair share of trouble in the area where we were staying).

Raced back to the NT, a few weeks ago - as wanted to be home if we needed to go into lock down. Much better for ones mental health when one is around their workshop.

Anyway hope everyone and their family's are well and safe during these Dark Times.

Have got back on track with the downdraft table - on the home stretch now :D

A few jobs done, in the back ground:

- Cut and access panel hole in one of the sides, to mount the electrical bits (a bit of an after thought, but just made life a little easier).

- Started the paint - nothing fancy just good old spray bombs from Bunnings, using an etching primer and hammer tone finish to hide any sins.
