A journey into the workshop. #68: Why is cleanup making it more of a mess?

09-09-2010 05:39 PM by dbhost | 11 comments »

Oh yeah, I took stuff off the wall! Okay so I am busy trying to make a disk slip or something by stripping my 10’ wall section between the tool stacker, and the clamp rack completely down to the sheet rock. Now this is no small task. Everything small enough was stuffed in to four clearance priced totes from Walmart $3.00 each, and I will re-use them for holding project components when I have to make smallish production runs of parts.. It’s the bigger stuff that is causing th...

When chores interfere with woodworking

Had a rare day off yesterday. I have an ongoing list in my head of the things I need to do, and the things I want to do on my days off. Unfortunately, I decided that it was time to start on the “need to do” list, which usually means working on the ongoing renos to my house. Don’t get me wrong, part of me has really enjoyed doing the renovating of my basement into a liveable space. The slow collecting of tools and skills for the work was what got me interested in woodworking....

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #98: Trying Out Some Corian

After all the excitement of the previous day, yesterday brought with it a welcome calm. I took advantage of the general quite of the day and I did some major house cleaning and organizing. There is something about having neat and organized surroundings that provides comfort and peace in my life. I sent the next project off to the magazine. There are two projects there already there awaiting their publication along with a couple of articles, but the editors are already finished with them f...

I’ve decided on my challenge entry. A table (small) with a Louis cube veneer top and a Rubik’s cube for a pedestal. The cube will rest on one corner on a base supported by 4 cubes as feet. On to the pencil and paper!

Been a busy summer… I finally finished one of Andy’s Art boxes. That was fun; thanks Andy. I gotta get a picture up there tonight. Made a lot of useless stuff this summer too. Mostly practice boxes, but I did build a new gate for my side yard, kids treasure boxes, router table extention on my saw. Gotta look at the pictures cause I forgot the rest. We spent a week in Virginai at my family’s new summer house. Can you believe they would not let my take my drill in ...

The American Woodshop with SCOOT PHILLIPS is Back !!!!!!

09-09-2010 06:24 AM by Delta356 | 8 comments »

Ok So I just got an email from The American Wood Shop that they were coming back on the air, with 13 new shows. The Shows look real neat. I’m a supporter of The American Woodshop, And The New Yankee workshop, and I think both these shows are great and it’s its sham that Norm, (The woodworker I grew up with on TV) is GONE!! I thought if there are any The American Woodshop supporters out there I should let them know about the re airing of the show. If you go to the web site you can...
