The following is a list of Claro and Bastogne Walnut boards available.

Tablesaw Workstation #3: The base is rolling!

04-22-2017 05:33 PM by Gingzillaman | 0 comments »

This past week I have been able achieve a little progress on the table tablesaw workstation. I now have a rolling base that is ready for cabinets. The base is welded up from “C” channel that I had left over from another project. My father was nice enough to weld me up the frame 2 weeks ago and bring it to a meeting point half way between us. This is going to be a beefy base but at least it will withstand just about anything that gets thrown at it like moving and the usual shop ...

For some time I wanted to build my own wood duplicator for personal projects. Theres several nice duplic..tor on the market, but I wanted to build something from the floor up. I used several ideas from duplicatorss on the market and incorporated those with my own. Mainly I wanted it light in weight – so I decided to use marine grade 3/4 thick ABS which is ultra light but extremely strong and durable. All of the 30mm glide blocks, stainless steel rods, and ABS only set me b...

Work Around the House #1: New Screen Door

04-21-2017 02:28 PM by b1v1r | 4 comments »

We recently bought a ~22 year old house that needs some work and updating. As one of my first real projects around the house, I needed a new screen door to enjoy our screened in porch. The old door had decayed to the point of falling apart. I thought this would be a great place to start with a new found hobby of woodworking. The finished project is here: I won’t go into too much detail here – just wanted to go through my steps. As I ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1831: The Process

I’ve been exploring the Southland for as long as I can remember. Walking around, driving around. Always observant. I’ve worn out cameras, in my lifetime. Yet, on a fairly regular basis, I come across things that make me scratch my head in wonder. How, on God’s Green Earth, have I not noticed this? Here’s one of those things. I came across it, yesterday, about four miles from home, in Uptown Whittier, while cooling my heels. I’m leaning against my car, looki...
