I own a Honda S2000, a super-agile, sport convertible produced by Honda to celebrate the new millennium and their 50th anniversary. Its packed with race technology from the ‘90’s. One of the great things about this car is that there are tons of aftermarket products available so owners can modify the car to make it perform or look the way they want. In fact, it can be so highly modified that its no longer recognizable as a Honda or an S2000. This leads me to the question, “...
Today I ogee’d the drawer fronts and doors, applied aniline dye to some pieces and finished the kick up on the vanity, it’s going to have motion sensor lights in the bottom. The aniline dye looks funny now but It always looks great once the finish goes on.
Greetings, My journey into woodworking has been a long one. I can remember working with my uncle handing him tools and was fascinated at the various uses. I went through school taking woodshop and when I got out of high school, I went to trade school forcarrpentry. I worked various remodels and new construction. I took every opportunity to help out buddies working on their homes to hone my skills. I have done concrete work as well. My favorite job however was working with a truly ...
Been wrestling with the problem of how to cut the miter angles on a curved top panel to a carcass with uneven side heights. The big problem are the curved nature of the panel and the fact that the angles are acute (past the 45 degree stop) and different on each side. Ended up building this adjustable jig. The slotted base lets me adjust distance from the blade, and the friction chest lid hardware the angle. I inked a line on the saw table with an ultra-fine Sharpie by registering a str...
So my other <expletive></expletive> expensive hobby is legos. Last year I was bequeathed with the Emerald Night – a lego replica of a steam train (reminds me of the one in Polar Express). It got me thinking about all the fun times I had as a kid helping my dad set up his small HO scale set on a platform he built to fit under our christmas tree. I have an idea in my head about a design I’d like to throw out and see if it’s even possible – I doubt however I’...
Shooting boardMade to fit the bench, a table or the Festool MFT The other day I was annoyed that I had to plane some end grain, and had no shooting board.I wanted a little board that I can bring with me when needed, with a 45 degree function also, and that will work with a little low angel 60,5 blockplane, and a normal no.3 or 4 handplane. So, what is a shooting board?A base in two layers, that have the purpose of letting the plane run forward and backwards, and be ‘shot’...
My good buddy Jockmike2 gave me a call on sunday. he was out of town and wanted me to post his entry in the contest on LJ. Unfortunately, I was in my car also and I was not able to git-r-dun. But then today I received a soggy package from the post office. It was a cardboard box wrapped up in plastic wrap. I opened it up and it was a double pack of Vernors Soda. You can’t find this stuff around here and Mike said it’s readily available where he live. So he sent me a...
I found a nice little coping saw at the Habitat today. Put a new blade into it, and tried it out on a bit of plywood. Failed utterly. I don’t know what I’ am doing with this tool. I’ll read up on it. Ran into the head of the maintenance staff while I was walking my dog this morning. I asked what the current waterproofing is, so that I would know how to deal with it when I re-do the wall. He told me that they use dryloc, and that if I want it re-waterproofed I ca...
I usually have to stay away from ebay, because it tends to be a little addictive for me. Just got a couple of good deals. Here are my winnings from three auctions. It all started because I was looking for a “Big Boy” plane for my 21 month old. I have a Stanley Handyman 1203 (similar in size to a Stanley #4 but 1/4” narrower and a bit less refined) that I use for things I don’t want to touch with my Pre-War #4. Things like outdoor deck railings or other possibl...
I’m just testing LumberJocks blogging functionality and how it works when imported into Tumblr. This post will likely be deleted if such a thing is allowed here. If not, I suppose I am announcing my intention to blog about my projects. At some point. Soon. Not necessarily THAT soon. But soon. Maybe.
