<div> Click To Play </div> In this episode I talk about premium tools and a fire we had at one of our New York shops. I go over some of the top premium brands and is it really worth it to buy these tools. Intro: window shopper 50 cent
Don’t ya just love it? I found a delta 31-695 sander at * for $90 less than MSRP only to bring it home to find out it was a discontinued product. It was a 48×6 with 9in disc for $209. It was am impulse buy . . . . I was weak. I hope it treats me well.
Yo whats up everybody so I just started a new project its a organizer for stuff like rakes shovles stuff like that. Well so I start butting the 2×4 for it and like most projects I always change my plan. So I decided to make it 6ft long 14in deep and 36 in tall. I am almost done with the frame but tommrow I will start cutting the small strips for the organizer part. I will post final pictures of it next week sometime.
The shop organization and remodeling continues, on a far less aggressive note today. With daytime highs near 100 degrees F, overnight lows just barely dipping below 80, and murderous humidity, the shop has been what we call HOT… And I have been working my tail off out there. I have muscles that are sore that I forgot I had, and I have had a nasty headache all day today. Combine that with the swarms of blood thirsty mosquitoes that Deep Woods Off seems to be an appetizer for, and s...
Hello again all, After thinking about and looking at the suggestions provided, I decided to take a piece of one suggestion and run with it. I am going to take this 8’ board and turn it into a couch table—kinda. Ulimately this will end up being four separate tables linked together by puzzle piece cutouts. If you want one table about 24 inches square, you only use one part of the table. If you need a longer table (maybe for serving at a party) you can piece together up to all fou...
Well, I spent Thursday afternoon looking through 2 Home Depot’s worth of birch plywood. I finally found 3 pieces that suited my needs. I actually found a 1/4 sheet that had some very procounced dark brown streaks (maybe spalting…not sure) anyway, I used it for the center of my headboard panel. I also routed a rabbit/groove in the back side to accept the panels, and put in ogee around the perimeter of each panel in the front. Today I cut the panels to fit and glued them up. I ...
I posted this blog on my web site www.TheBenchDawg.com and thought I would share it with my fellow Lumber Jocks.Keith A good friend called last night and suggested I write a blog about an article that I wrote in 1993 for the Mid-Michigan Woodworkers Guild. When I was young I was taught how to tell time. I thought that this task was quite simple, but I find even today I have trouble telling time. Actually it’s not telling time that’s the problem, but it’s telling the time that it take...
I purchased the hood shown in the link below. http://www.pennstateind.com/store/R-TDHOOD.html And I want to install it on my Ridgid TA3650 saw. Now comes the good part!!! I had a plan to build a unit that incorporates the hood. The unit is 3/4” plywood (2’x4 1/2’ approx.) that bolts between the saw and the stand, you screw the dust hood to the plywood. The plan shows a drawer and shelf using the plywood “overhang” to the left of the saw and a shelf on t...
Gidday from the land down under [where men thunder]. I have been reading lately about the 30 in 30 and have decided to up the ante.As most of you know I love making boards so I plan to make at least 150 by the end of September or early October. The main reason for this challenge to myself is that I have been invited to the Melbourne Working With Wood Show in October and I don’t want to turn up with just a handfull of boards. Most of you know that I also have a regular job so this ...
