Sharing my auction experiences - 16 replies

I have 70% of my 2car garage ceiling rafters fitted with R-19 paper-faced batts with the goal of being 100% installed and fire rated gypsum panels to seal it all up with 2 2’x2’ access for future endeavors.

bench and/or wall bench carcass material - 0 replies
I made some rough drafts for wall bench flip top on paper, then sketchup, then with extra douglas fir 2×4’s I had laying around: it came out not too shabby and it’s actually functional for my planer stand as is. Now onto the final project. As a new wood worker, I am unsure of what to use for carcass material. I already have ...

cutting mortises by hand, question - 4 replies
I did 12 mortises today. I feel more natural following Paul Seller's way of chopping mortises. His way or the standard way… I always seem to have trouble chopping the end walls at at perfect 90degrees. The first or second mallet whack is ok. But then my chisel always wants to jutt back towards the center 1/16th” or slightly more,...

Thanks for the LumberJock internet community - 4 replies
I just had my neighbor come over to see why there were bright lights and music (I think I had Journey – Open arms gently coming through the stereo) coming from my garage in the last 2 weeks. He commented on all the wood working machines, lighting, electrical, insulation, layout, shelving, painting, etc. And it occurred to me. 1 year ago...

I really love the older machinery - 18 replies
Just picked this up at an auction for $50. I swore to myself no more machinery til I get the garage electrical remodel (waiting for electrical buddy to look over my work before calling inspector). But I could not pass this up. I did need a disc/belt sander. Was really leaning towards the $200 Ryobi oscillating sander. But this called my...
