Queen Size Storage Bed #2: Trim finished, paint prep

11-07-2017 04:18 PM by Justin | 0 comments »

Finished up the trim on the cases and drawer faces. Filled all the nail holes and joints and began sanding. My math was wrong somehow on the amount of trim material needed, I’ll have to go back to the cut list and figure out how that happened. Of course this was discovered Saturday afternoon and my local lumberyard was closed, so I grabbed some mostly clear pine form Lowe’s in order to avoid being stalled out for another week and just worked around the few small knots. I had...

Good evening everyone! After several weeks of tremendous pain, I, Jennifer Holsworth (Kendrick) and my husband Jacob, have just now gained the strength to let everyone know that my father, Glenn Holsworth, had suddenly and tragically passed away on September 14th, 2017. Since we’ve been dealing with this terrible time on our own (without support from any family members, as it has always been my father, Glenn, myself, my husband and my son since forever) it has been very hard to cl...

A little time off #4: Dovetails cleaned up, lid is done..

11-07-2017 04:31 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

And even a PIP!Dovetails were planed down flush with the sides… Once all the corners and edges looked good, I could set up the Stanley 45 as a bead cutter.. As I wanted a pair of beads run all the way around… Started on the ends first, then the sides, reset the fence a bit, and go around again.. Beads had to be low enough for a sliding lid..saw cuts were made.. Down to the top of the bead. mitre cuts on one end, then a plunge cut the split off a “handle̶...

Underway again...finally #7: Analysis paralysis, but progress...kinda

11-07-2017 01:10 AM by JohnTM | 5 comments »

Spent hours and hours de-nailing the pallet haul. When I got to the plywood pieces, I was overwhelmed and disappointed by the construction. There were over 90 nails in the plywood – over 90!That pic shows just some of the nails on one side along one edge. Examining the construction left me with the realization that trying to de-nail that and salvage the plywood would be an exercise in time-wasting and material destruction, not salvage. Luckily, that point was before I actually wasted an...

Craftsman Tablesaw "Restoration" #2: Fence is on!

11-06-2017 09:52 PM by HandyHousewife | 2 comments »

Last night we finally bit the bullet and installed the new fence. WAY easier than we expected, and if anyone plans to install one, any old wood+metal drill bit will drill through the cast iron with a bit of patience and a slow speed. We marked and punched the holes to keep the bit from wandering and then did each hole in 3 steps, because it worked better for us (and our bits may have been a bit dull.) Thankfully, we didn’t need to adjust the blade in relation to the miter slots, that so...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #2: Well that didn't take long

11-06-2017 07:09 PM by Bluenote38 | 6 comments »

Of course not – I’ve been thinking about this for about 6 months. And like most have done a LOT of internet searches on “Tool Cabinets”; “Toolboxes”; “Tool Chests” (Yes I have the book); “Hanging Tool Cabinets”; “Tool Hanging”; “Tool Storage” and several more permutations. If you think I may have missed one let me know. There are hundreds of solutions, as many as there are Woodworkers, and so many great id...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #1: In the begining

11-06-2017 06:38 PM by Bluenote38 | 0 comments »

In the beginning chaos reigned. Yep, that about sums up my “shop”. Or to quote my wife: “What a mess”! Easily 50% of my time is spent searching for a tool or hardware I know I have and dancing around everything trying not to knock over wood piles or tools. I had a decent shop once but after several moves and life changes I’ve never been able to actually pull together another organized workspace. Now I’m staring at another move in 18 to 24 months and ...

Christmas Gifts #2: Cell Phone Stand Assembly Line Started

11-06-2017 05:33 AM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

After making the first prototype, I began the process to make many more of these cell phone stands for Christmas gifts. I need to make thirty-two gifts this year. I gathered all of my 1/4 thick pieces of resawn lumber plus planed a few more boards to 1/4 inch thickness on my Grizzly planer. With a rip blade in my Saw Stop I ripped all of my 1/4 inch thick lumber to 2 7/8 inches width. I then place a crosscut blade in my table saw. Then with my crosscut sled I set a stop block so I coul...

Christmas Gifts #1: Cell Phone Stand Prototype

11-06-2017 05:06 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

After performing an inventory of my hardwood storage and surveying different gift ideas on the Internet, I decided to make cell phone stands for Christmas gifts for many family members and a good friend. I started this project by making a prototype. I asked my Annie what she thought about it. She liked it! So the project is go… For the two pieces that makes this stand I was going to use 1/4 inch thick pieces of hardwood and their width will be 2 7/8 inches. This thickness ...

Capsray 9100 HVLP and gun rehab, part II #3: gun assembled and ready to go. this blog entry is now complete.

11-06-2017 01:37 AM by Holbs | 2 comments »

after purchasing new check valves, I re-assembled the gun and ran warm water though it while powered by the 4 turbines. Works like a charm! Am very glad I cleaned this Maxumm II (I know it’s a Maxumm II gun now with the hook broken off). Much more “umph” with the 4 turbines as compared to my single turbine $100 Summit HVLP system with plastic parts. Now, I understand how spraying finishes works with a gun such as how much material you can adjust via adjustment knob, how ...
