Cat Box for Cat in a Box

04-10-2018 03:39 PM by builtinbkyn | 21 comments »

In addition to Willie, my German Shepherd, I have two cats. One I adopted from a local rescue in Brooklyn and the other wondered into my yard 5 years ago, looking all beat up. She’s very small at around 5lbs. I came to learn, she too was caught by the local rescue, however she was a capture and release. There are many strays in the yards in old Brooklyn. So many that there would be no way to hold them all until adoption. So the local rescue catches these cats, has them neutered,...

A New Beginning

04-10-2018 03:23 PM by MtnViewWoodcraft | 5 comments »

About 8 months ago I began my new journey into woodworking. I had dabbled in the past, but last year (2017) I hit the ground running. Today I have a small, very small, but growing business. During these past few months I have expanded to woodturning, CNC, laser, and just regular woodworking. While there are a few tools that I still need, my shop is 95% stocked. Now comes the task of coming up with new projects that I can sell and that will make money. In addition to my shop & stor...

Shop Upgrades #2: MFT 3 Powertool Workbench

04-10-2018 01:35 PM by MatthewTruax | 0 comments »

So I have made some progress on the Powertool Workbench. I was lucky enough to score a Woodpeckers Router Table and mounted it flush with the MFT top. As you can see in the attached photos, the top is now extremely heavy and after I took these pictures, I made it a point to revisit the positive stop as it seemed too small for the task. After I took these photos, I heard a loud bang and found that the stop had failed and my gas struts were overextended and ruined. So, like most of you ha...

Bath Stool #4: How to...

04-10-2018 12:51 PM by Diego Cassels | 5 comments »

Well there is not one way to do things, so here we go with the thinking HOW to do it! I´ve decided that the legs should have a 12° angled slope, so I have to figure out how to make the mortise under the seat with a 12° incline. Any ideas, sugestions are very welcome. I’ve also decided to create a saddle look to the seat, so I rememberd that a lumberjock “woodshaver Tony C” had suggested me to look at his way of doing it, jig to cut saddles in the stool seat’s I like...

I decided to start by simply drilling and reaming the hole for the end button of the fiddle and fitting it in place. jj Next up, the hard part, fitting the neck.

Mind is Blown!! - My New (New to Me) TS Delta 36-454 Grand

04-09-2018 11:59 PM by Let_that_saw_eat | 17 comments »

So I bought my first solid table saw yesterday off CL, I must say what little I’ve used it thus far my mind is beyond blown!! The miter slots on a quality cast iron top, compared to the crappy aluminum one I had before, is like a dream come true. The rock-solid Unifence is another huge shock of goodness I’m unaccustomed to, not having to measure front and back with the old cruddy fence is like a race car vs. a golf cart cross country. I can’t wait for the weekend to come so I can make s...

Dungeon Remodel, the drill til #3: almost done, sidetracked a bit

04-09-2018 10:53 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Getting an update, here. Lots of trash hauled out of the shop…took a few days… One of the first items cleaned out. Made a nasty mess on the floor.. All the hammers were set aside…. I think they will stay here, for now. Found a lot of stuff in that drawer…clamps, drill bits, a second mallet.. A speed square….a few bits of hardware…about a dozen files.. And a slick. Handled files went back into the drawer…non-handled ones went to...
