bandsaw #2: We have arrival

08-20-2010 07:19 AM by twokidsnosleep | 5 comments »

I had a hole open up in my schedule that let me sneak home early and meet the delivery truck.So I got the darn saw and it is gorgeous.Everything looks perfect with no shipping damage and the delivery guy even helped move the big box off his truck and onto my dolly. I thought it would have been easier to leave it all on the pallet and use his tailgate lift and pallet mover, but that was not his mind …..I wanted the pallet wood to practice on! Here are some pics of our pre-dinner attac...

pull out closet #1: #2

08-20-2010 05:20 AM by ken_c | 0 comments »

A full interior sanding and dry fit followed by the glue-up. The glue up took place in three phases. The top two parts were glued up first then once that was dry the bottom and sides were done with the top assembly dry fit in place to the sides, and then the top assembly was glued to the sides. I added some structural members to the top sectio...

Hello All, It was strange how both Tom and Ralph sent me things today, which I seemed to need. I am not sure how they knew I was in peril (ok that may be to strong a word, slightly confused would be more accurate), but they came through. Thanks! Brian

A pile of lumber….Gathering materials, working out cut lists and design…..Man, why can’t we just fire up the equipment and get going. Well, to begin with, there are other projects that are trying to get done and can’t get going in shop til all the materials get delivered.

125 - Shop Evolution Update

08-19-2010 11:14 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 26 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options In the past, I’ve discussed how shop improvements are never done. As our needs and tool preferences change, the shop has to be able to adjust accordingly. If not, you will likely be faced with an inefficient and potentially unsafe work environment. If you can believe it, its already been over a year since Nicole and I moved into our new house. And for those that don’t know, we are indeed still carrying ...
