Very cool that your shop will be up and running soon! 

Since many are working from home now I’ve received a plethora amount of messages for doors going into offices to provide privacy.

It’s actually been the opposite.  With many working from home I’ve been swamped with orders for doors to cover home office/study openings.

Thats awesome. I was looking for a house with a existing shop. The one we bought was new so Im having the shop built. was going 30 x 40 but to pricey for me so Im going with 24x30 with a 8 x 12 shed built on.

An acre is more than enough...I was looking in the 1 to 1.5 acre size.  The home I purchased just checked all boxes I needed.   Perfect timing I guess.

I get it. Iwas looking at Tx and a place with a shop already built. Wife liked this new house in Az so Im having to get a shop built and do the land scaping etc.

A acre is plenty for me. I honestly dont know what Im going to do with all this raw land. But its all based on the shop being built.
I can figure out where to plant trees gardens etc then. Shop is really the center piece for the land.

It’s actually been the opposite.  With many working from home I’ve been swamped with orders for doors to cover home office/study openings.

That makes perfect sense.  When do you have time for police work?  :)

It’s been hectic!  That’s for sure.  New baby, new house, and busy at the PD and with doors!!  But it’s all worth it.  God is good.   [wink]

@TXFIVEO

I got the 700 and planning on building a barn door for my house. Do you uses a festool bit or a CMT bit?

Do you buy the dominos in lengths and cut to size or buy them precut?

Just curious. I need to get a 14mm bit.

It will be a while before I get to the door, got a lot of stuff to do before that time comes

I use both...the 14mm x 140mm and the long ones that I cut to length on certain jobs.  Best to have both on hand for sure. 

I use the trusted Festool 14mm bit...I’ve probably mortises a couple thousand dominos with that one bit.
