Well, it’s that time of year again. I do always try to get on here and wish my old friends the very best for the holiday season. I even finished a project for a Christmas present but let it get away with the customer before I took pictures. It’s funny how you can get out of the habit. When I first signed on on LJ, I would no more than get a project finished until I had it photographed and posted. That was back when there were about 1200 of us and about 40 really active. I just che...
So until we move, the only dust collection I have is two shop vans. They do a fine job as long as I remember to turn them on. I also wear a mask and dust goggles. To top it off I have a box fan with furnace filters on it. For the most part I am good to go, however, the worst happens if I forget a step. Apparently, I am allergic to the dust. Not epi pen allergic! but I get respitory issues, sinus issues, and my eyes swell up and turn red. It’s really not much of a treat, although I loo...
Sometimes you end up with a little dent and its always in the spot it will show the most. There are several ways to get rid of them, but here is the way I do it the most. I’ve actually tried sanding them flat only to end up with a bump. This is were the dented wood is still there and the finishing process caused it to raise. So its sometimes beneficial to address a dent and fix it unless you want an eyesore that you’ll see every time you look at your project. http://youtu.be/ek...
Hello kind sir or madam. :) I watched Steve Ramsey’s chess board project like 6 months ago and I determined that I have to make this project. My dad is turning 60 in the beginning of January, so I decided to make this for him. He likes chess and the set we have at home is cheap and like 20 years old. He deserves better. Now I have started work on this project – yes I am late, I know… Anyhow, I have the wood and I started it, but I have a problem, a huge one to be hones...
Well worth the watch!!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGbZqWac0jU Merry Christmas to All Here At LB!! Aaron
This is the last part in this blog about my shop construction. The following pictures show a few last stages on the completion of the building. Some of the pictures show some of the machines as they were being uncrated or shortly after the crates were hauled out. The last two pictures show the building after it had been completed. The last four pictures of the equipment shows the machines as they were shot looking toward the machinery from each corner. Of course now the important work begi...
And so we continue with the saga…and as with most projects I get ahead of myself and want to see how it’s going to work before I’m finished. Here is a mock up to see how the glass looks backlit. Works amazing. I just need to upgrade to some daylight corrected bulbs. This shows the ends cut off the light fixtures to get ready to wire it up. I cut into the plug to see where the ground cable and hot cable were coming from. Turns out the middle section of the cable is always ...
Smoking hot present from my buddy Brad US, UK, DK… This one I have been waiting for a wile to post.This because Brad should have the time to post his own story about his meeting with Andy first… You will soon understand. Some of you have seen this picture before.It was the day I got a present from Jamie.The same day another pack arrived, that I have kept secret. In this pack inside a foam pad a beautiful little wood tool was meeting me. Notice the difference to this pi...
Our roof has been leaking for the last few seasons at the spot were the old fireplace pipe comes out, despite several attempts to fix it. There was a spot of good weather so thought I would brave the heights and climb up there and use the new spray seal stuff to see if that would help. (I hate heights now that I get vertigo attacks.) Anyway, I am including this in the series because of the cool pictures I go of the trenches, piles, shovels, dogs and view! This is the view looking Northw...
