“Mr. Snowman” is the second of the Skating Pond series which I am recreating. I love his little plaid scarf! Painting plaids is really fun and a bit of a challenge when I am doing so on such a tiny piece. He also looks a little more ‘fluffy’ in person. I am just going to keep scanning in the pieces now for consistency. When they are all done, I will take real photos using a camera and they may look a bit different. The snowman in the original set looked kind of ...
It turned out to be quite a productive day after all. It feels good to be back in the swing of things. There is something that I find quite comforting in following a routine and it was great to feel ‘normal’ and productive again. The welts are all but gone from the bites on me and I no longer feel need for the medicine (although after finding the proper one, it wasn’t as much of an issue) My it was cool yesterday. It remained slightly overcast all day and it felt so muc...
I just got the PC ROS and I can’t use it until I get some 5 inch disks. I have put this off for a long time, as I have a half a dozen PC and Makita 1/4 sheet sanders in the shop as well as on the boat. I like the econ, of the 1/4 sheet sanders, but now I am faced with velcro backed disks, and don’t quite know who has the best deals, and quality. Way to many choices on google, and the local hardware store is not any help.
Construction of the bandsaw So far has been going on for about a month. The main frame consists of a 4×4 treated post and 2 particle board panels (top and bottom). The panels are grooved into the back of the post. I assembled the bottom of it very quickly. Everything sits on an old end table and wider sub-table to hold the bandsaw. I use a 1/3 hp induction motor, which has a 2 inch v-pulley fixed to its spindle. A v-belt then connects t...
I am not officially a “galoot” but I do keep an eye out for hand tools whenever I happen across a garage sale or used items store. Most times, though, I accumulate them as gifts for small favors or when people I know go through a basement cleaning and come across items they don’t use or have any interest in. This latest acquisition was a combination of the two. I helped out a friend with a wireless router issue and once we started talking about my interest in woodworking she...
Thanks for the welcoming from everyone. Please check out my website www.wilsonmillworks.com.
So, Todd @ToddInMontana is over on Twitter asking us how we spent the day in the shop. Now I can’t show what I’ve been up to today, but I wanted to share that I’ve finally moved on from working ON the shop to working IN the shop. This is, of course, the before photo…. Can’t show how it spent the afternoon, now can I?. Get a good look Rob… this will be finding its way under your tree…. in one form or another. ;) Does starting on the 2010 g...

Hello All, The hangover has subsided and I was able to write ‘The Threads of Time pt. 2’. http://su.pr/24ld3b Brian
Motivation I have been using my Delta 36-444 Contractor Saw, 2000 Edition, for almost 10 years. It has been working well, though I want much better accuracy, and I want to spend less time getting accurate cuts. I have a Delta Unifence, which is an excellent fence, but it requires repeated cuts to get the accuracy I crave. There is no micro-adjust available, and I cannot figure out how to add one easily. Also, unless I am willing to drill holes into the Unifence, it does not lend itse...
