I have inherited a Belsaw planer and have no use for it, it has 3 hp motor – rpm 3450. I am asking 450.00. Email me at email@example.com for photos. It is in good shape.
I know have all the lumber that I need for the project and more than enough wood. The question I have is when dealing with ten year old air dried wood, is thier a preffered time of the year to build with it? Should I bring the wood indoors? Should moisture be a concern? I will not have any panels to deal with and the widest I am going to have is about ten inches. I am building a cradle.
It is dyed, stained and sprayed. Now for the final assembly. There is a lot more on this project, as in final assembly, then on most of my projects. I had to add the lights in the piers, headboard and header. I usually use curio lights behind the shelves, but I wanted to try some long florescent lights this time. I am still waiting for the glass for the top and the smoked glass doors. They should be ready today and I can post the finish project. Here are a couple pictures: Fo...
Earlier this week I ended up with some scrap baltic birch ply, and cut it into squares with the band saw. I sanded the faces a bit and glued them all together overnight with Titebond III and a Bessey K-Body clamp: A little turning later: And I was starting to get a wine glass shape: That’s probably where I should have stopped. I knew that going thin-stem with the plywood in this orientation was asking for trouble, but I just kept going anyway, mad with power: ...
I know people move every day but I don’t suppose it is everyday that people move out of the city and back to the country. Well, maybe there are plenty of people who do that as well but for me it’s not even ‘back to the country’, rather to the country for the first time, ever. It’s the culmination of many years of dreaming and scheming. Some 30 years ago I heard myself say that I wanted to buy and live on 200 acres of forest. I can’t remember where I go...
Well, it’s been a while since I added to this blog and lots has been done. I spent a day and a few evenings insulating the ceilings and walls. I used Roxul’s Safe ‘n Sound, double layer on the ceiling and double layer on any 6” walls. Even though it’s not fiberglass, it’s still disgusting. I wore a good dust mask, eye protection, gloves and a disposable full painters suit. My ceiling joists in half the room were 12” on center so I had to cut th...
OK, so in order to break down the MDF sheets, I need a long straight edge. First order of business therefore is to make one of those shop-built straightedges using the factory edge of the MDF as a reference to get a straight edge on some 3/4” BB ply, glue and screw that to a base of 1/4” tempered hardboard, and then trim that to finish size with the spiral up-cutting bit in the router. Hmmmm, might as well make a second one about 4 1/2 feet long to use for cross-cutting, right??...
Well I think it’s safe to say at this point, with four days left to enter, there is no way I will ever make the deadline.I had good intentions, but this has been a busy month, and I was at the mercy of others for the use of a band saw. Time slipped away. I will keep working on it until it is finished then sell it. This is an original design and wanted to try to incorporate some new skills (which is also time consuming).First I wanted to have caned backrest and seat frames that could...
I take different routes on my daily commutes to see if any limbs or trees have come down. Today, taking a road I never take, I hit the jackpot – a full, large, old Jacaranda tree with fungus rot through its base fell over on its own this morning, on a windless, quake-free day, narrowly missing a pedestrian. I knocked on the door and a nice lady answered, holding back her dog. We talked for a half hour, but she had an endless stream of concerns, all of which I tried to answer: ...

Now to vote for the top 5 which will be from Tuesday August 11th thru Tuesday august 18th .I will post a poll at my website www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com and you can answer it there that way there is no confusion about the results.
