It’s here: .When they tell you that it takes 20 or 30 people to move it—particularly up or down stairs—don’t be an idiot. It really does..I (as in me and nobody else!) had a ‘weight belt on,’ but … I’ll be on Ibuprofen and the gym’s hot tub (and—if I beg—SWMBO’s back rubs!) for about a week. At this particular moment, I don’t even care what this thing will do. I just want to feel better … and THEN I&...
First cabinet done (except for the back of course): Again, sorry for the iPhone picture quality. The completed depth without the back on is 10”. So with the back on I should still have plenty of room to shim against the wall for installation, while keeping the cabinet slightly recessed so it doesn’t stick out past the side wall – which would be bad of course, since I never intended the sides to be exposed. I’ll be doing an applied base as well, since I&...
The workbench twoI complete the turning of the legs for the workbench and compare minor differences that occurred while turning. While the differences are not obvious to the casual observer and don’t affect the overall project I can’t help but to critique my work. This critiquing is an important step in my learning process. Being self taught for the most part, many times in the past the first step in a project was to just do it, then analyzing what went wrong or right. Having chosen to ...
I am working on a project for my wife and found that I have to mitre the ends of the box for the project. I can cut these on my RAS or my table saw but they will not be exactly right, so I went off on an adventure to find plans for a shooting board that will allow me to shoot a 45 degree bevel across a 13 board edge. Needless to say I did not find any large format shooting board plans that would work for what I need to do. Some of the boards that I am working with are just over five feet l...
No, I don’t mean you have to swallow the stuff – ugh!! What I mean is the barn has no doors yet, and swallows fly through it quite often. The farm has been chosen as a migration destination by several pairs of European swallows, and we have close to a dozen old mud nests around the property that the swallows return to each year. There is a nest in my tool room that is the subject of today’s blog entry.I knew the nest was there before the swallows returned, and I didn&...
Along with a passion for making my own tiles, I also have built up a collection of eBay studio tile finds myself. I’ve had this tile, waiting for a frame idea , many years. It has a southwestern feel. The trees are simple, but well done.,,,,
My shop has been invaded!!! Mike Gager posted a blog about an invasion of brown recluse spiders in his shop. I have another “invasion” of sorts that has occurred in my shop. Most of us tend to be somewhat solitary woodworkers and work alone in our shop. This has always been my situation as well. However last week this is what was going on in my shop: This is my son Jonathan using a jointer for the first time. Jon and his wife “commissioned” me to build...
Just wanted to let everyone know, we had a great time at the LJ Arizona picnic today. Thank you everyone for comeing out and spending time with us. It sure was nice to ba able to put a face with the names. Had a lot of fun and food. BarBQued burgers and dogs, had lots of other food including, a Pumpkin Pie and cookies that the store owner, Mr Keith Stephens, brought out when he stoped by. Well, I did not get all the pics, so someone else will have to fill in the holes. First off here...
