Living Life In A Wheelchair

Wood Table Apart
[ Friday April 3rd 2020 at 8:43 pm ]

In 2010 I built a work table designed around the size - shape of my power wheelchair. As I'm reorganizing my home I realize this is no longer optimal for the physical space it uses. Instead I need to get my laser engraver beside the window. It needs to be vented when running because it is setting off the smoke detectors. After all the etching is burning wood. My smoke detectors are very sensitive. I've now finished disassembling this. I'm half way to the goal of setting up the laser engraver beside the window.

The next step will be sorting through 3 boxes of stuff that has built up over the past 8 years. I expect most of it can either be donated or is trash since I haven't used it for several years. I need to give my body a few days to recover. Then I will start tackling this. I'm on track to have the laser engraver setup by the window I'll use to vent it by the end of this week.

The last step will involve ordering a cooking range vent hood and physically installing this with a hose by the window. That will involve a bit of measuring. I'm thinking that a clothes dryer style vent and flexible hose will work for this. But I need to see the physical setup to be sure. To cut to the chase I'm making progress and am pleased with this.
