Milling some Pine

A long short day on the old table saw, milling lap joints into the 1x6 pine that will adorn the ceiling.

Dado blade going in the table saw.
Feather board to keep everything tight for clean cuts.
Old and malfunctioning table saw. Missing key, bad pulley tension. In this case, no pulley tension. Every time a tool breaks you get to learn more about it. If it feels like a pain, I try to remember to ask myself, What's the rush?
Between running the boards through and fiddling with the motor, this is about how the scene looked all day.
And by the end, a fat stack of pine with lap joints ready to install in the interior ceiling.
