Workshop Development #61: Been a while. Starting to get the sheet rock on the walls. Planning the next stages.

11-26-2012 05:53 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I’ve been busy, so I haven’t been in my shop much lately, well that’s not exactly true, but it IS true that I haven’t gotten done what I want to yet. After scheduling the time to get a rented hoist, then discovering the hoist won’t work for holding drywall up against the studs while I start the screws, I got a helping hand from my lovely bride, who could only go so far with it. I need to get some volunteers to help me out here! Long story short, we wrestled...

My TINY shop renovation #6: Pegboard cabinet done!

01-27-2013 05:47 AM by StayinBroke | 3 comments »

I have to thank the winter weather we had yesterday for a 2 day weekend! Sweet! First one I’ve had in a while! The job I’m on right now is a little behind so my company has had us working 6 8 hour days a week for the past 4 or 5 months, and just this week we went to 4 10 hour days (Monday-Thursday) and 2 8 hour days (Friday and Saturday) taking us up to 56 hours a week. Makes for a loooooong week, but it will definitely help pay the bills (Not to mention the $70 a week I use in ga...

Kitchen Cabinet Challenge #1: Day 1

03-26-2009 09:12 PM by Bill Hall | 3 comments »

So, I’m hanging out with a friend over drinks and we get to talking about his kitchen cabinet situation. You see, his microwave crapped out and he want to get a new one. He’d like to install it over his stove, but he needs a shorter cabinet to in place of the one that is there to fill in the leftover space. Replacing it would be easy if he could find the exact cabinet in the right size and color. Soooo…it’s not that easy. Since I was several beverages in and since...

woodworking magazine

04-12-2009 11:31 PM by woodsmith | 3 comments »

If you could only buy one woodwoeking magazine which one would you buy? I have not been that happy with the one I have been taking and I decided to look around to see what other choices there were. I didn’t know there were so many! If I try them all I won’t have time to work in my shop, so maybe I will start at the one that gets the most votes and work my way down the list.

St Louis Wood Show 2010 - Saw Stop Live Demo

02-13-2010 04:34 PM by tooldad | 3 comments »

Just an FYI. At the St Louis Wood Show, there will be saw stop demos at 1:30, 3:30 and 5:30 Saturday and Sunday. Show is a little on the small end, probably economy related. On the other hand, sales staff doesn’t seem to be as pushy this year.

Extremely Average #53: Henry Wood Detective Agency: The New Office

02-24-2010 05:46 AM by Ecocandle | 3 comments »

Henry pulled out of the drive, the book resting on the passenger seat, and the Four Knights, ‘I Get So Lonely’, playing on the radio. The steering wheel was cold, really cold, and Henry didn’t even notice. His gloves in his pocket, all warm and napping, just waiting to get in the game were quite content where they were. In his mind, he was laying out the cards which had been dealt him, looking them over, and searching for patterns. It was obvious, that at this point, his hand was weak...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #3: Finishing

05-24-2011 05:52 AM by superstretch | 3 comments »

Spoiler alert: Its done! Got the piece all clamped up and brought it in during a chilly stretch of weather Bottom of the piece after a nice soak in med walnut Danish oil and a few coats of wipe on poly Teensy bit of a gap, but it closes up depending on temp/humidity. The oak looks kind of trashy in this pic compared to the pretty walnut :) Another shot of the bottom, but a different direction. Notice rays appear much darker.. From the top All finished, but the lens on my pho...
