Please tell me which version you like best. Trees on the ends, trees on top or no trees. The mountain range is Mt.Elbert near Aspen Colorado and the 2 trees are lodgepole and ponderosa, the two that the pine beetles attack.I put my initials KW in the mountains also. The initials were almost there already if you compare the actual photo at the bottom. I am leaning toward trees on top. The logo will have color later.

The fireplace is made of layered mdf. i then took a rag and dabbed on some joint compound to give it that texture. I think it came out pretty good. See ya next time…

Stitching pony (quick and clean) blog

04-06-2011 11:19 PM by mafe | 27 comments »

Stitching pony (quick and clean)the third arm… I have done quite a few leather sheaths, and always been fighting with it, and looked at these ponies full of envy, so when I decided to make sheaths for all my axes I thought it was the time to make myself one of these. This is how it works, you place the pony between the legs (don’t laugh), and the fasten the leather you want to sew in the jaw and lock it there – in this way you have a third hand, and trust me it makes s...

Obsessions and pragmatism...aka, how not to lose your girlfriend, job, etc.

04-06-2011 09:53 PM by gljacobs | 9 comments »

I once read an article about the scary skills of the famed Larry Bird. Now not being a basketball fan, or of any other sport for that matter(-10 on my man card), I wasn’t really into the article, but I continued reading because my only other choices were Better Homes and Gardens and Glamour. As I read on, the more involved and invested I became because it relates to a personal philosophy of mine.Larry was a professional and he was not only a professional, he was a pro that other pros lo...

Shop Update #4: Ideas that I'm stealing!

04-06-2011 08:00 PM by TheKingInYellow | 7 comments »

While I await the coming of the shed, and drying of the land and the organization of my garage, I find myself with plenty of time to browse and steal ideas from others :D So, having had a chance yesterday after work to mount the zero-clearance plate on my Circular Saw, I’ve been planning to steal this idea from Cory’s blog. Essentially a much nicer looking version of a pegboard tool holder. My plan is to incorporate this system of French cleats everywhere I have wasted space,...

Veneer Cutting Board with a Magswitch Clamping Straight Edge

04-06-2011 03:26 PM by sbk | 1 comment »

This 1/4” plywood veneer cutting board is backed with 22 gauge steel. Using this configuration with a straight edge and Magswitches aids in holding and stabilizing one or more pieces of veneer with the straight edge. The photo above shows the cutting board in use with the white melamine straight edge. Hardwood would be a better choice of materials for a straight edge (this was scrape). The straight edge used is 40” long and 4” wide with five 40mm holes for Magswitche...

Circle cutting #11: How it works...

04-06-2011 10:11 AM by degoose | 19 comments »

I think that a short video explains things better than a lot of words… so I made this on my i-Phone. I apologise ahead of time for taking this one handed… but as you can see the jig can be operated safely with one hand on a camera..although it is certainly easier with two hands and no camera…. While I was cutting one arc… well I made a few more boards… As you can see a teaser for the next project idea… One for the beer drinkers and one for the r...

Not enough guys make wooden utensils for families to buy. I took my wooden coffee coaster sets to the senior center to sell on commission in their store. They requested for me to make wooden utensils for people to buy for their kitchens and they believe the wooden utensils would be a fast seller in their store so I am designing a set for them to sell in their store. I won’t charge a arm and a leg for them as I want my set to be affordable to families. My thoughts are if you put a littl...

Circle cutting #10: Arc cutting like Patron does.

04-06-2011 07:17 AM by degoose | 5 comments »

Due to the fact that some of my boards have curves ends … I need to make another jig… this one for cutting arcs… to start with I need to decide how the arc would look… so a test jig was made… Hole were drilled at various places so the jig can pivot on the bolt in the centre part of the circle cutting jig….. a fence attached and then the distance from the pin to the blade was adjusted to see how the different curves would look.. After several test cuts...
