Carpe Mens Mentis #1: Small Scale Bot's Got Brains, or Does it?

1963 days ago by ChrisCook | 0 comments »

To note, I have named this series Carpe Mens Mentis “Seize the Mind” in reference to the “mind” of everything we build in electronics. It is odd how even the simplest of locomotive electronic “dumb-bots” can, at times, appear to have sophisticated sensing abilities. While this is odd to me, it is absolutely amazing to my kids. Recently, I built a couple little 1.5v bug bots for my two kids. These are very simple “robots” who only know they ha...

Carpe Lignum #1: Saving Money Instead of Time

1963 days ago by ChrisCook | 0 comments »

I recently helped a friend of mine construct a privacy fence around the back yard of his new home. He is new to the world of carpentry and woodworking, so I have taken it upon myself to help guide him on his sawdust journey dream. After we finished putting up about 600 feet of fence, he decided his wife would like to have post caps overlooking their new fence. After I made it home, I put together a few jigs and cut some sample post caps. My good friend will now be helping me to create abou...

Kitchen Cabinets #6: Pot Drawers

1963 days ago by Dan Lyke | 5 comments »

No, “pot drawers” not a reference to where I might keep my stash. The 352 holes I drilled the weekend before last paid off, after a little bit of rework ‘cause I miscalculated the height of the slides, I bent up some dividers and screwed in the drawer slides, and loaded up the drawers. More pictures here.

Hall Table Designs Would like Your Feedback

1963 days ago by bfd | 23 comments »

I recently picked up some 8/4 Walnut and a beautiful piece of 4/4 Jatoba. I have decided to build a Hall table and have come up with two designs that would exploit the grain of the Jatoba. I would like your input on which design you lean toward. Idea 1 is modern and the concept is that the frame is mitered in two directions to create a continuous “ribbon” of walnut that is unbroken. I will either do a contrasting keyed miter joint or a miter slip joint. I may or may not ...

Crafts Shows R Us #9: Wouldn't you know it.....

1963 days ago by closetguy | 4 comments »

Go Vols! For those who watched the Tennessee-Kentucky game last Saturday, I hope you saw me waving in the stands. I was the wet and cold person. Ok, so everyone was wet and cold. It was still a good game. It’s amazing how 44 degrees feels like 34 when it’s raining. We got there about two hours before kickoff and holed up in a sports bar on the strip and watched the final of the Georgia-Georgia Tech game. My wife had to practically drag me out when it was time to walk over to the stadiu...

router table

1963 days ago by trucker12349 | 14 comments »

I have always used a hand held router and have decided to get a router table. I would like to build one but, have decided to buy a cheap one to start. Because of the depression bouts I have I don’t want to get half way done and then just ignore the table when I lose interest. I have looked at the ryobi router/router table combo for under $200.00. This router is a 8.5 amp router with a 1/4” shank. I will also buy a ryobi 18 piece router bit set with the bearings. My old router bits...

Ponderings #22: The End Result Versus The Process

1964 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 11 comments »

My hand tools have been a bit frustrating, and I think I know why. Partially because they need some more sharpening, but that’s not all. There’s a good bit more sitting beneath the surface, waiting to be exposed, and more and more work with wood has started exposing that to me. I think I’ve finally realized the issue, and now it’s time to deal with the long, expensive journey to fix that. Working outside like I’m forced to do, weather becomes a major factor...
