I haven’t had a whole lot of time lately but began work on making a box for my Dad’s Burial Flag. It’s been going agonizingly slow, with so little time available… He earned his Flag as a 20-year Naval Reservist, one of hundreds of thousands of young men who volunteered for service when things were heating up over in Korea. Patriotic Fervor about our country was still wide-spread and strong, happening so soon after WWII, and so many volunteered that the Services didn...
This is part 1 of my shop tour. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
There is lots of exciting news regarding the Torque Workcentre...I can’t tell you everything at this stage…. we are still in negaotiations with various parties…... but what I can tell you is that the Torque Workcentre will be available in the U.S..of A. very soon….and no I will not be coming to the states just yet… but there is a definite possibility that I will be able to visit in the forseeable future…
Hi all, Soon I will be reunited with my love that was taken from me about two years ago. On April 4th, I will be reunited with my house and, most importantly, my workshop after a very long divorce that went on for almost two years. I can hardly wait. I have been lost without my hobby and went through several months of sawdust withdrawal. Agonizing! But with the settlement complete, I will be able to get my fix every day! From the pictures provided during the settlement conference, it...
Well, I got the table saw back and am now getting ready to continue with the process. It cost me $73.48 to get it fixed. Minus the 29.99 deposit I paid 43.49. So not bad. Will keep you updated as I make progress.
No not that !! Get your mind above the belt. Here is the pile of Flamboyant (Delonix Regia) I started slabbing today.. And here are some gorgeous crotch pieces from the log to the left of the helmet in the picture above....This wood is a beautiful creamy yellow colour and is quite soft. Unfortunately the smell is not particularly pleasant – try to imagine a faint after-smell of pine vomit. I know that sounds gross, and it is, but fortunately it is not a strong odour. I wonder ...
Next up is the wooden planes, they are in nice shape, they just need some TLC. This is a nice screwdriver,with storage in the handle. Mesuring and layout tools. Boring tools, drill bits. Chisels, axe and mallet.asdasdasd Hand saws.dasdasdas So this is all the tools from my old tools box, stay tune for update on the restoration of most of these tools.
I made some progress last night….I finished installing the cabinets that are the base for my CMS and my drill press. I also finished installing the countertop, which is a solid core door with a 1/4” hardboard top for a total thickness of 2”. The edges are wrapped in cherry. I thought about leaving out the hardboard, but I want to make sure that I can easily replace the top when it’s damaged or worn. On that same train of thought, I screwed on the edge banding as op...
What’s happening in the shop for February . Today we’ll be spraying Harvey’s locker murphy bed, desk, and toybox. I’ll be finishing the build on Jordan’s twin murphy bed. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:<div></div>
I don’t really think I could call it a Kiln yet, but it is helping the wood to dry a little quicker. More than a year ago I started building a prototype solar kiln, but didn’t finish it for various reasons. Among other reasons, we moved to the farm, and there are more pressing jobs taking up my time. With all the logs I’ve been collecting and slabbing, I was running out of under-cover storage for air-drying, and anyway, my prototype kiln was never designed to hold thi...
