While changing out three overhead chandiliers I sought help from a lighting store near by. The chains holding he lamps need adjusting. I was afraid, these being antiques, that I would damage the chain. The lighting tech was quick to make the fix’s with a pair of these pliers. Spread the link with the tips, squeeze it with the area behind the hinge. Had never see a pair, Had to have one. These are called “Chain Pliers”. Nifty!
Some time ago Mary, an avid scrapbooker, was at a local scrapbook store. She called and told me that the proprieter was getting rid of some tilt out bins, Did I want some? I asked “how much is she selling them for?” The price was $1,00 per strip of bins. These sell at the store for about $15.00. I asked her how many she had. She had about 80 or 90. At a buck a strip, I said, “Bring them all home!” Mary arrived later with the Honda filled to the roof. Like mos...

Hello All, Today, since I was at my parents, I couldn’t do any woodworking. But I could plan my next project. I have some graph paper and proper drawing tools, so I went to it. I am very excited about my next project. I included a scanned picture of my drawing in tonight’s blog. http://extremelyaverage.com/2010/09/the-plan-is-a-winner/ Brian Ohio State 36 – Miami 24. Go Buckeyes!
Had a warning from a workmate who’s next door neighbor had their house burn down this week.One of the kids had left a laptop upstairs charging on his bed and it started a fire. Their house burned down with everyone home in afternoon in a matter of minutes. No one was hurt, but they pretty much lost everything.I have noticed how hot my Mac gets when I am charging it up and now put it on a ceramic hotplate to charge.Just be careful.
Well i read a review on a craftsman 10 inch band-saw and seeing it was my birthday my wife bought it for me. The first thing i did was attempt to square it up. I have failed miserably. I will start again after some research on tuning a band-saw.I have made a cabriolet [hpoe i speeled that wright] leg out of a treated 4 by 4 so that generated me making a table to out of ceder. I will place it at the garden for when i am tired of hoeing and my wife and I will have coffee and enjoy our hard work...
Well after a long hiatus since my last blog post, I have made a lot of progress. It has been a long, sweltering, uncommonly hot summer here in Nashville, TN with temps in the 100 degree range with heat indexes of 105-110 degrees. Working in an open-air, non-climate controlled garage shop made it almost unhealthy to work on any project for long periods of time. And now that my semester has resumed at the university and my teaching duties are running full-steam ahead, I haven’t had much t...

We are going to start displaying our wares soon there just need a few more things to show. Anyways what a fun time not alot of traffic this was the first day but hopefu...
Continuing my progress I decided that the box joint, per the plan, was the way to go. Instead of 5 drawers I did four. I had all 5 cut, but figured one extra big drawer would be more useful than 3 smaller, so I used the biscuit joiner to combine one of the two big ones with one of the small. It saved me from buying more wood and gave me more practice with the joiner. I checked around for plans for a box joint jig and decided that the one from Shopnotes.com (PlansNow) was the better of the ...
