Work(shop) in Progress #11: Reorganizing Single Car Garage II - Machines are Resting

08-26-2010 04:17 AM by PurpLev | 17 comments »

Hmm… I thought this step would take longer, but after ~3-4 hours of labor and some sweat I was able to do the following: reposition short-lumber rack in a 2 tier (or 4 tier) setup to utilize what was wasted space above it before, also clearing out the space for the milling machines relocate milling machines (jointer, planer, shaper) to newly created space relocate workbench to space left by milling machines relocate drill press, bandsaw, and router table to space left by work...

Freud Blades

08-25-2010 11:56 PM by woodcraftertom | 5 comments »

I have been useing Frued Blades on my table saw—I especially like the Glue Line Rip blade. The only problem with these is getting them sharpened. Freud will not sharpen even their own blades and to send them out is an adventure. I lost two blades to poor sharpening by reputable companies. No one seems to know how to sharpen these and the sales reps have no solution. Does anyone have a suggestion except to use another brand.

Tall Music Cabinet #1: Beginning to Build

08-25-2010 06:42 PM by DrSawdust | 5 comments »

My wife teaches piano lessons in the living room of our home. She has a lot of sheet music that get scattered around. She doesn’t want to put a large filing cabinet in the living room . . . something about being too tacky. I tried my best to explain that the paint is usually dry when you buy them. She just gives me that look and asked me to build her something to match the little cherry bookcase that sits in the living room. Basic box is done . . . finished trim on the sides. It...

Plywood Quality Yesterday I called a lumberyard that’s only a mile or so away. It’s an old family concern and they’re my neighbors, since we live in a community with only one traffic ...

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #4: "Pierre"

08-25-2010 01:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Time to add a boy skater into the mix, I figured. This is Pierre. Although Pierre is not a child, he still looks like he may have a little bit of mischief left in him. I can see him zipping around the ice, weaving through the couples holding hands and wobbly children at an amazing speed. Better be careful, Pierre! You don’t want to knock anyone over! From SLDP103 Skating Pond Figures I hope you all enjoy him! :)
