Great comments on the rolling pins fellas. You are right about the lags. They are abit unsightly. Reseacing them and adding a plug would be a good solution, but it would also take more time. Don’t get me wrong I love to sink endless hours into my work like the rest of you but these are sora my mass produced items I make alot of them at a time and I need to keep what I have to charge for them low. I also like that the hardeare is accessible easy without any fuss for deep cleaning onc...
I’ve just added another useful feature to the Pulse based on your feedback to the recent major Pulse upgrade. I admit that showing only unread items by default was not ideal (I’m using Pulse in that mode for a long time you know…). So I decided to add the following two buttons – ALL ITEMS | UNREAD ITEMS: ALL ITEMS option shows unread items as well as all of the items that you’ve read – the gray lines – and is a default one. You can keep using i...
Sorry for the delay. But I have been crazy resetting the shop, installing my new dust collector, and getting my heat straightened out. I had a bit of a tragedy in my chair as you can see in this pic. The seat split. I am trying to figure out the best repair solution so that it is strong and the crack does not continue. Anyhow, the following photos show my rough sculpting and joinery. I still have at least 40 hours of work left as I need to finish the back slats and chair back, ...
I finally got my 7 1/4 freud blade shipped out for replacement to Toolup.com today. They provided me with a return shipped label prepaid which makes me happy. Unhappy part is that it will probably be another week at least before I see a replacement…couldn’t bring myself to pay double the price to get one at Home Depot. I just wonder why the guy placing the blade in the box couldn’t look at all 40 teeth before plopping it in there. I didn’t find the tooth in the ship...
Okay, so another 8hr day in the books. Again I am humbled by what I can get done in a day. And again I see that a better plan would have taken a lot less time to accomplish the tasks I did today. Well, the day started with some remorse over yesterdays hasty apron glue up and lumber sizing. I had intentionally left the aprons proud of the bench to flush trim. This isn’t normally a problem on a light duty bench. But for this weekend warrior bench I have to flush trim aprons that a...
Forgive My Insensitivity… A public Thank You is in order before I go any further. I had some great support from two individuals that are a part of LumberJocks. I relied heavily on Dave Pruett for “on call” support to figure out how to edit / process / and post my video. I need to thank Marc Spagnuolo as well. I did not continually call him like Dave, but his advice and pointers were taken to heart and helped me out as well. As with my woodworking, my achievement...
So its almost New Year and I,m planing my projects for the next 12 months and one of those is a set of bench planes. I have a number 3 and 5 from Stanley, a block lane from Stanley and a copy of a Record rebate plane from Rolson all of which are ok to start with but I,m keen to make something a bit different. I have all the info I need to make the bodies so thats not a problem, what i can,t find here in the Philippines is the irons. I could order some from hock or lee valley but there is two ...
I’ve begun the shop work on my coat center project, whose (rough) design can be found here in a Google Sketchup v7 file. The goal is to allow my short kids to be able to hang their coats themselves, and also have a place to manage their library books and hats & gloves. There is also a discussion of my progress here during my first shop session on the project. I was able to make a fair amount of progress in about four hours of time, which is unusually productive for me! Enjoy...
