Batching Out

Poll - December 8, 2014

‘Tis the season… When we build projects for all of the relatives on our gift list.

Sure, there have been years when Aunt Mabel wants a cutting board, mom wants a picture frame, your cousin Vinny wants a cigar humidor, and you built individual projects for each.

But it’s so much more efficient to build one kind of project for everyone. This way, everyone on the list gets the same item built in steps. You can cut all the pieces with the table saw fence set to the right width, cut mortises with the router bits set to the right depth, etc. Essentially, it becomes production work.

So this week, tell us if you’ve built multiple copies of a particular project and how many you’ve batched out!
