First, I did add pictures to my earlier, background blog. Well, I did not master sketch-up, but I did get it to show the way I plan to start my storage wall. So, the plan is to attach the OSB to a 2×4, back-up the OSB with a sheet of vapor barrier foam with some type of construction adhesive, and then attach the 2×4 to the floor joists. The block wall this will be against is bowed and I am not sure how best to locate the placement of the 2×4s on the underside of the ...

I bought and rebuilt a 1949 Delta Cabinet Saw for my shop, but it is a little big for small projects, so I decidedto redo my Delta 8” tablesaw for smaller projects. Solid table saw extension for a Delta 8” saw are not easilyfound, but I had an old Atlas 8” table saw I got free with an open style extension that after I drilled a coupleof holes bolted right up to my Delta. These older saws were not made for dust collection, so I cut a few pieces of masonite and made a ...

Found a cool trick to help with the dry air of winter carving. I’ve been placing a piece of dampened paper towel around the wood blank an hour or two before I carve. When I first did it, I just put it on one side, which lead to some weird warping, but when the blank re-dried it was flat again (whew). This pattern relies almost entirely on the basic triangle cuts, so it’s good for practice. I used a simple flower motif in the center, it can be left blank or used for some...

Here is the final (as of this point) wiring on the light controller circuit. I’ll get the power controller for this part added shortly. This is a really simple circuit with only two IC’s. One is a 555 timer chip that will create a pulse at an interval determined by adjusting a potentiometer (from about 2 a second all the way to about 4 or 5 seconds). This pulse is sent to a 4017 decade counter chip that will cycle outputs after each pulse received. So it basically counts fro...
