Bonsai stand #1: Cutting the burl

12-30-2015 04:03 AM by icemanhank | 3 comments »

Remind me not to try this again by hand. This Aussie Redgum burl is HARD, it took me about 3 hours to cut it with my trusty hand saw (which was the biggest one I had) and Black and Decker Workmate to hold it. I can just imagine the looks on my friends at the woodworking clubs faces when I tell them that I did something as crazy as this haha.

Stanley #801 Build #1: Inspiration and Research

01-25-2016 07:03 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 3 comments »

Initial Motivation I don’t remember being smitten with these house-shaped toolboxes at first sight, but over the years they’ve proven to be one of those things that got more detailed attention with every interwebz run-in (ebay and the OldTools list, mostly). An early pic of one I noticed: Then one appeared on der Leachmeister’s List and I jumped in (top image below); a No. 888 was soon in my shop. The Search As is typical, my example was missing the inside (sliding) tool holde...

Making a Marking Knife

01-27-2016 02:31 PM by beahan | 3 comments »

I decided to make a marking knife from an old saw blade and some plastic bags. I really like how the blade turned out, but I’m less than thrilled with the handle. I will most likely figure out a different way to do it and then remake the handle. Leave me a comment if you can think of a better method. Here is a video of how I made it. View on YouTube

Repairing/Upgrading HF Bar Clamp

02-06-2010 07:11 AM by HungryTermite | 3 comments »

I wrote a review on these HF Bar Clamps and I gave them a good review based mostly on the cost. At basically 6 for the price of 1 better clamp, they would have to achieve an impressive failure rate for me not to like them. That said, I had one fail within the 1st week of owning it. Rather than return it and get a new clamp that would suffer the same flaw, I realized I could fix it and upgrade the other ones I bought to fix the problem for about another $1, which still makes them very c...

Coffee table #3: Progre 4

04-30-2016 12:09 AM by Markymark | 3 comments »

This week I used the band saw to cut an angle on the lags. Then sand the cut part flat with the belt sander. Then the lags and end aperons flat on the table. Then lined them up and score them together. Then turn both parts on the side. I grab the rail and lade it flat. Then level the two parts with the rail and screw them together. Then measured the bottom part of the railing 4 inches down to screw the lower railing.

Workshop construction from dream to reality. #5: The big pour

06-13-2016 09:53 PM by DalyArcher | 3 comments »

Well, 17 yards all placed by wheelbarrow. I simply could not commit myself to the extra $1000.00 I was quoted for a pump truck. My friends scoffed when I relayed the estimated costs to them and all unanimously responded with “I have a wheelbarrow”. A date was set, men recruited and at 8:30 on Saturday morning the first truck arrived. Initially there were only 4 of us and after the first 5 or 6 wheelbarrows were dumped, it was looking like we were going to be there a while...

It would appear that I have been putting off finishing the A/C repairs on the Saturn off just a wee bit too long…. We don’t drive that car much because, well we have the Malibu that is a much nicer car, especially with my back issues, I don’t have to contort my back to get in and out of it like I do the Saturn. Well Sunday night my wife and I were driving out somewhere, don’t recall off hand, about 9 P.M. ish when we heard a horrid noise and the car heated up in ...
