The Great Garage Reorganization and Shop Improvement Act #4: Let there be light! ...and lumber storage.

02-17-2010 06:34 AM by captkerk | 5 comments »

When autumn came and I started working in the garage with the doors closed, I realized how little light I have with the new shop arrangement. I started by putting up an eight foot long florescent fixture (4-four foot T12 bulbs) over the table saw/jointer area figuring I would re-evaluate where I needed light after that was up. Then my neighbor tells me he can get me some eight foot long fixtures from his company since they were closing down a factory. So I ended up getting 3-eight fo...

Flea Market Scores

02-17-2010 06:09 AM by Jeison | 6 comments »

Dropped by the local weekend flea market on Sunday, just thought I’d kill a few minutes sharing some of the goodies I picked up…. (thats right, its “sharing” not “bragging” lol!) A B&D twin-screw benchtop clamping thingy I got for $4, looks damn handy, tho those metal jaws are pretty ragged, figure prolly remove em and either sand down the plastic jaws smooth or epoxy on some hardwood ones. .... A Craftsman benchtop router table, got it fo...

Extremely Average #46: Her Name is Angie

02-17-2010 05:25 AM by Ecocandle | 13 comments »

The response to yesterday’s blog, “I Suck”, was tremendous. The number of views went way up. I can only assume that there were a great number of people who agree whole heartedly, and likely have had this opinion for some time. When they saw the title, they were eager to revel in my realization, of that which they had always known. The comments were wonderful. I responded to a number of them and I looked up a lot of the products that people suggested. I am much smarter today. Thanks...

My Tools #2: My Christmas present from mom finally arrived!

02-17-2010 05:22 AM by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

It’s the JET – JSG-96CS: 6’’ x 48’’ Belt / 9’’ Disc Sander w/ Closed Stand, 3/4HP 1Ph, 115V. It arrived by pallet in two boxes: Right away the 3/4HP motor and belt seemed bigger than I’d imagined this past year or two (this has been on my wishlist for awhile now). I had even scaled up my mental image, but it was still bigger than I thought: The closed stand is a very thick sheet metal, and heavier than I expected. It was a...

OK, This is by no means an expert guide to making rings, as I’m only in week-1 of making them ! .but right now here is what i do, this is fairly comprehensive tutorial for a beginner (and by a beginner!) . its mostly self-explanatory by the pics, but i went and explained anyway.. i begin by sizing a blank about 1/2” thick x 1-1/2 wide, and long enough to cut off several squares cut them off on my band saw (God i love my bandsaw!, Minimax MM16,bought used for a Song!)the cu...

Evansville, Indiana Woodworking Guild!

02-17-2010 02:39 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 4 comments »

I posted a week or so ago asking if there was an Evansville, Indiana are woodworking guild and had no reply. I would like to form one as long as I can find plenty of people to join. I have nothing formal in mind, so plenty of input would be appreciated from anyone wanting to join or anyone who has experience in forming or participating in something of this nature. I envision this as a very informal skill building, cooperative organization focused on sharing information and fostering a more pr...

This is a piece I plan to build over the next few months to use as a show piece in craft fairs and possibly to put in a gallery. I have lots of connections in the art world so hopefully I can find a home for it.
