A gloat

11-25-2010 01:55 PM by racerglen | 6 comments »

Our radio station’s in the process of it’s first major renovation in 33 years, and that means things are getting tossed. But there’s a friendly tek who knows about my shop and projects. So far it’s been shelving for the garage shop, a metal Epson roller printer stand that fits nicely in the wood shop and could probably handle several hundred pound but’s no serving as an odds and sods cart that allows me acces to the forgoten corner with the taps and dies an...

A Little Cabinetree #5: Assembly (and a little setback)

11-25-2010 03:43 AM by shipwright | 17 comments »

Don’t you just hate it when this happens !! Today was supposed to be the day I finished this project. Tomorrow I was hoping to get it to the photographer’s. The next day I was going to post the completed cabinet. Oh well, maybe next week. As I was finishing up sanding for what I hoped would be the last coat of wb poly on the box, I noticed a little flaw and thought I should probably sand it out. Well, apparently, I probably shouldn’t have. As I sanded the finish thi...

Just for Fun... #39: Of Hasps and Pins...

11-25-2010 02:23 AM by littlecope | 17 comments »

The second requirement of this “Suggestion” Box, was that it be locking. To that end, I began cutting out a hasp, starting with the loop through which the lock will pass…It’s a good thing these are small parts!! My scraps of Mahogany are getting awfully small… It took about 20 minutes of musing, and about 5 minutes of cutting to get here…Since this box already has “Ears”, I’ve been referring to this as the “Nose”... Next came t...

“I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot…and missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that’s precisely why I succeed.” Michael Jordan…(1963 – ) Former professional basketball player, active businessman, and majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats.

Atom #2: Zen and the art of jig making (or Getting Jiggy with it)

11-24-2010 07:00 PM by BritBoxmaker | 19 comments »

I lay awake desperately for two hours trying to figure out how I was to cut four sides and a top from this striped cross.--In the end I gave up and went to sleep. My new planer arrived bright and early. My old one had died inexplicably. Damn I thought this is getting me away from the project. I dutifully put it together, tried it out and tidied away the old one all without much enthusiasm. Another trip to the re-cycle centre (used to be called the dump, now re-cycle Nazis quiz you as to wh...
