Here’s an addendum to yesterday's blog entry. I used KML Generator to plot my hiking route, and displayed it in Google Earth. KML Generator calculated my total distance as 9.44 miles, with an average speed of 2.2 mph. That’s about what I had guessed. I then overlayed my georeferenced photos to create the image you see here. I can see from the satellite map that there are many more trails I haven’t explored there. Charge!!
0-60 Magazine offered a PDF download for plans for an arcade racing cabinet: http://www.0-60mag.com/online/?p=18342 Since I already have a regular arcade cabinet this seemed like another great thing to add to my basement. Unfortunately, the layout in the PDF is not to my liking and the font for the dimensions is horrible. The hood is also too large to get down my stairs, so I made some modifications and built it in Sketchup. It’s designed for a specific wheel,...
After letting the lumber I purchased get happy in my garage shop for the past 2 weeks, and playing around with and debating over various bench designs, I’ve officially started the process of building my new workbench. I decided on building a Nicholson-style workbench similar to the one in Chris Schwarz’s book. This weekend, began the process by milling up the stock for the bench legs and aprons. The leg blanks ended up at 2.5+ inches thick and 5 inched wide. The aprons have been m...
Gary Rogowski - Northwest Woodworking from William Schultz on Vimeo. I didn’t make this video, just wanted to share it. Does anyone know of any good woodworking documentaries?
Woodworking projects under way. #15: Wood Magazine clamshell cabinet part deaux. Doors done. Almost complete...
The doors are completed, the inners are mounted. I am running out of time for tonight, so I am hanging it up as it were. I need to mount the doors, and cleats, mount the catches, sand and finish this thing… I am so close I can taste it…
I was suppose to have this video done 2 weeks ago, but due to children illnesses and a long overdue vacation, it got delayed. Just finished it up today. I hope you enjoy and go to my webpage for past videos and well, just to visit. Thanks guys.
During this episode we’ll watch the transformation of a dull and lackluster backyard into an oasis for growing our own delicious vegetables. Well, I might be exaggerating a bit but it sure looks a lot better than it did before. I’m a little lazy, and don’t want to duplicate posts from my personal site here, so if you want to see the full story you can access it here.
My friend did not want a high gloss finish, but a more natural looking finish that would still be durable. I decided on Arm-r-seal wipe=on oil-based finish as I have had good luck with it on other projects. I first applied a seal coat of shellac. Following a light sanding, I then applied two coats of Crystalac water-based grain filler to fill the very porous walnut, sanding between each coat. Finally, I applied several coats of satin Arm-r-seal, thinned slightly with mineral spirits t...
Got to spend some quality time in the shop this weekend. Just recieved my “new to me” Stanley #6 plane. (Thanks Don!) Sharpend the blade and went to work flattening my not so flat bench top. This monster went after it! Talk about an upper body workout. After I got my bench flat I went after a piece of Cedar. Cut through it like melted butter. Thanks for looking.
I have taken the handle off the saw, hit it with a wire brush to remove any loose rust, and coated it with Navel Jelly. This is the first time I have used it and I have to say I like it alot. I have to give the saw one more coat to remove any stubborn rust left. Then I will start wet sanding it. Thanks for looking and please leave a comment with any advice you my have since this is my first saw rehab. Thanks again.
