A Lumber Jerk in Paris…Setting up a second workspace What do you do when you are retired from work due to health, your fiancĂ© lives in Paris and you in Copenhagen, and are a real Lumber Jerk? You go shopping in Paris! (On your bicycle!!!)The fact that I spend so much time here (one of four weeks a month), made me want to have some hobby when I’m here, and also to be able to stand good when I can do some work (when my health allow me), I try to draw, and to read, but I m...

Extremely Average #248: No More Fuzzy Feeling

09-10-2010 04:26 AM by Ecocandle | 3 comments »

Hello All, I wrote a bit of a different blog piece today. I needed to vent a little, so I did. I learned something when I hit publish. I felt much better. I am someone who rarely needs to vent, and when I do, I usually just ignore the impulse and move on. But having a blog to use for this, is actually quite a wonderful thing. When I was done, I didn’t feel I needed to vent anymore. So I guess I will sand a tiny box lid! Fun. And watch more football. ...

Good Mate Ken …from Kenscraft Wedding Wishing Wells… dropped by with a load of Camphor Laurel… he gets it from Byron Bay on the mid coast of NSW…I figure it to be about a cubic metre or just under… 75 percent of the boards are dressed to 25 mm [1 inch] and the other rough sawn at about 32 mm

Pietenpol Air Camper #5: Empannage

09-09-2010 10:04 PM by K5YAC | 5 comments »

With the wings all framed up, I could start working on the empannage (tail section). I picked out all the spruce I would need to frame the empannage and then got busy shaping the leading edges, trailing edges, fitting hinges, etc. The horizontal stabilizer took several weeks to complete… primarily because of the HOT weather, but also because I was taking my time to ensure that I was building it properly. Next I built the elevators. And then the Rudder and vertical...

Pietenpol Air Camper #4: Center Section

09-09-2010 09:54 PM by K5YAC | 2 comments »

Once the wing panels were framed up, I went ahead and framed the center section since the construction was similar to the wing. Many people install an auxiliary fuel cell in the center section… I will be using mine for storage.

Building my dream shop #9: Guess I have branched off the main track...

09-09-2010 09:27 PM by rep | 0 comments »

since this was supposed to be about setting up a new shop, but I will get back on track eventually. We seem to have gotten rid of the smell with gutting the kitchen and replacing some walls in the pantry. We were able to move in the last week of August (the hottest week of the year, I think). Just put a bed in the guest room and most everything else in the living room till the kitchen is ready. It is like living out of a small motel room. It is nice to be living in my own place, and able t...
