09-12-2014 05:13 AM by Tugboater78 | 4 comments »

Some know I have been off work since memorial day due to a back injury. A lot of things got put on hold, but this building was delivered to my place a week before this happened. 4 days later I go back to work, 2 days later My back cries for mommy. 2 days later I am home again.

Minimizing, De-Cluttering, and Simplifying The Workshop

01-29-2018 07:23 PM by handsawgeek | 4 comments »

In the past few weeks, I have been perusing and studying a number of websites and blogs dealing with the concept of Minimalist Lifestyles. In a nutshell, Minimalism is all about paring down one’s material possessions to a point where all that is retained is all that is needed. It’s about getting rid of the non-essentials, dispensing with un-necessary items, and de-cluttering one’s living space, thus leaving the practitioner with a happier, less stressful, and satisfying life. In my rea...

Delta Unisaw #2: Got lucky with the motor.

01-29-2008 06:42 AM by Kevin | 4 comments »

I took the pulley off of the motor tonight and success!!! I tried the nickel test and I would just like to say that the nickel test is worthless. My nickel stood up even before I took the pulley off and you could see the saw vibrating. Now the same test with a dime is very accurate. I could stand a dime on end and start, run, and shut off the saw without it falling over. That is impressive. The Ridgid ran with the nickel easy enough, but the dime would fall over when starting or stop...

Just starting out with woodworking and looking to start a journal. Hopefully this will provide added incentive to progress and learn. Possibly meet some people that understand that projects aren’t finished in 30 minutes with 2 commercial breaks. On the shows everything looks so easy. My how things change once you feel the grain in your hands. We’ll thats all for now, being a complete nube I am anxious to go and google “bubinga”.

Shaker Media Cabinet #1: Shaker Media Cabinet #1

09-02-2009 06:44 PM by skeeter | 4 comments »

My customer really liked the documenting of my last project on this site so I’m at it again. This is a really big ( for me) cabinet for dvds. It’s dimensions are 82 high and 50 wide. Glass doors on top and solid doors on bottom. Sliding dovetails while I love the look and the strength are a pain in the ass. Just my opinion. Enjoy.the model drawing

Idea To Give Manufacturers and Retailers a "Fair Trial" or a "Trial By Jury"

04-26-2010 07:51 PM by northwoodsman | 4 comments »

Being a member of this site for just over 2 years, I have noticed that every once in a while someone unintentionally starts a blog about a retailer or a brand that turns into a bashing frenzy. In most case that wasn’t the intended purpose, they just want to vent, or have others see their side of the story and seek advice. Perhaps they are looking for validation that they were right or wrong. We have a review section at the present time. The site guidelines state “post your p...
