To paraphrase the composer Mussorgsky. (Pictures at an Exhibition) Here are the promised pics. It is a small exhibition. They are (mostly) small pieces, especially the Little Bess Box.I’ve not priced anything. I don’t expect in the present financial climate that anything will sell, not for a decent price anyway and I am NOT giving any of my work away to people I don’t know. There is contact info, people can Email me or leave a name and number I’lll get back to th...
Well, okay some of my work this weekend was in the shop… But for the most part, I continued down the road of progress on my other projects. This weekend saw the following progress… #1. Air conditioning evaporator coils, pans, and drains cleaned. #2. 25 feet of deteriorated and leaky HVAC flex duct replaced. #3. HVAC plenum box taped / sealed. (This thing was blowing cold air into the attic like crazy).The above combined should have a substantial impact on my heating / cooling b...
Well…we celebrated the 4th of July by gluing up the boat bottom…my wife helped me which is truly appreciated!!! And yesterday, Joey, my friend and colleague came over and we put on the stingers…On Sunday we got a later start and the patio really heated up but we made it…the bottom felt solid…and with the stringers on it continues to feel more rigid… Tomorrow we leave for Southern California and VIVA Las Vegas for about 10 days…so no updates for a ...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #33: The Benefits of Owning Your Own Business
One of the most rewarding aspects of my life are getting to know my customers and fellow woodworkers. I believe they are the force that drives me to do the best job I can do. As I see my business grow, I find that there is more and more interaction with my customers and although it takes time, it is quite a rewarding aspect of my life. Interaction with others comes in many forms. I receive emails from people asking questions or help, I talk with people on the forums and give advice or hel...
As I said in the previous blog, I had today off. It made for a short 3 day weekend. I have to say that my weekends always go super fast. I think it’s because I have a ton to do, so I always end up getting busy doing things I don’t want to do. For instance, I had to drive to get my daughter today and she lives 1 hour away. It took almost 3 with traffic. It’s not that I didn’t want to get her, it’s that I didn’t want to drive. Plus I wanted to go a lot...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ejjPFHn59I This is a link to youtube, so it should be safe. Watch the whole video (only like 1 minute long) It is pretty amazing…... it is a guy juggling hammers, but when he throws them up in the air, he is hitting a nail in the ceiling and driving it in!! Video is not in english…maybe someone can translate! :)
Hello LJ’s, Tonight’s blog is relatively short. I am too excited to write. I made my big tool purchase decision today! http://extremelyaverage.com/2010/07/my-decision/ Buying tools is GREAT! Brian
Taking a shot at it! I am using Eastern Red Cedar. My understanding is that the original is made out of Mahogany. I shall keep it up to date as the project progresses!
I was working on a 35mm lens adapter for a short film I was working on called Two of Hearts. A romantic comedy about four poker playing friends. As I was working on the adapter, I was using a drum sander on my shop fox 16-speed bench top drill press to sand a PVC fitting. I was in a hurry because production was two days away, and I needed to get the adapter up and running as soon as possible. I was sanding pretty aggressively at high speed and had the drill press table down and was sandin...
