Mind Your Own Business!

04-03-2011 03:09 PM by amateur | 7 comments »

”...that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands…” This verse from the Bible takes on more and more meaning to me as the world around gets more and more frenzied. > lead a quiet life> mind my own business> work with my own hands Gardeners do not plot revenge on their coworkers while they are trimming their favorite rose bush. When my neighbor is working on that ‘66 Dodge restoration in his garage, he ...

Thank you LJ!! I'm now a dadoer ;-)

04-03-2011 09:00 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 14 comments »

Cut my first dadoes tonight with a real dado blade set. Several years ago, pre Topamax, I bought a wobble blade. It needed an insert so I took my saw model to Sears. They had to order one. It didn’t fit. I figured I’d have to make one. I got busy with other things and never got back to it. Tonight I needed to make some serious dadoes 3/4” wide. I had some salvaged 1/4” hardboard. I roughed out an insert and friction fit it on the ends to hold it securely in ...

Lessons in barnboard

04-03-2011 08:48 AM by superstretch | 4 comments »

Today I had a unique experience that really got me doing something I’ve wanted to for a long time. Some background: So I have a ~150-180 year old outhouse that the previous owner moved off its old foundation and next to the pool, where it now serves as a filter/pump house. One side of the roof was cedar shingles and the other was metal sheeting (think refugee camp and you get the picture). During one of our windstorms, which the area is notorious for, the metal sheeting peeled back l...

Table Saw Upgrade #9: Mini Outfeed and Extension Table

04-03-2011 06:36 AM by MikeGCNY | 2 comments »

I built the extension and a mini outfeed table today. I used all left over ply and hardboard and finished it off with a few coats of poly. I built the mini outfeed table so that the fence has a consistent surface to run across from right to left. Without this, it would ride on cast iron and hardboard; now it just rides on hardboard. The outfeed table that I am building will be on casters and will latch onto the mini outfeed table with some rubber latches.

Estate sale find #1: Are they worth rebuilding?

04-03-2011 06:00 AM by sandhill | 14 comments »

` I want to thank my wife for finding these two wood planes at an estate sale on Sat 4/1/2011 I am not sure if they are able to be salvaged. I am looking into the cost of some new irons, one new knob and one new handle. I guess the first thing to do is clean them up and get all the rust taken off then polish them. I think they are #3’s but I am not sure one is a bit wider than the other. I just picked up a Wood River plane so I am not sure what I would do with 3 – #3’s. O...

Custom Coffee Table (wedding present) #2: Side frames almost complete

04-03-2011 02:50 AM by JasonD | 2 comments »

Still trying to work around my injured shoulder, I was able to get the first side frame completed (with the exception of the relief carving) and get everything on the 2nd side frame done except the raised panel and the grooves / dados it’s going to sit in. I learned a lot today in making the first raised panel and should have the 2nd one finished tomorrow. To make the raised panel:- used a marking gauge to mark the size of the rabbets on the outside face, edges, and ends.- cut the ra...
