Here we are getting to an other part where the dad determines the success of the outcome of the race for your child. We need to look at the weight. It can not go over 5 oz. So I get out my postal scale and get it as close as possible. Sorry about the tung, this kid takes after his dad. I had to drill out some cars, others needed a lot of pennies added. (This is cutting into the grocery bill) I could use a good October beer at this point. 24 wheels. First I would clean the...
This is a very cool story about the San Francisco Fire Department’s ladder shop! I know first hand how heavy these wooden ladders are. I also know first hand what a 1918 wooden ladder feels like SFFD Ladder Shop Video
Now that you’ve decided upon the shape of your bandsaw box and transferred it to the wood via your preferred method, it’s time to get to cutting it out. Just from working on this project a little bit, I’d recommend a 1/4” blade, or smaller. I started with a 1/4”, 4-TPI, then switched down to a 3/16”, 10-TPI. Between these 2-blades, the 1/4”-blade cuts more easily and quicker through the wood, but is not able to make as tight of a turn as the 3/16̶...

I first met Sammy (this was the name I recall everyone calling him) when I was about 9 or 10 years old. We were living in southern California where my father was the pastor a small church, and Sammy’s sister-in-law (sister of Alfreda Maloof) was a sometime congregant of that church. In today’s world, we’d probably call her part of the “C and E crowd” (Christmas and Easter), but perhaps more than that as I recall she and my family were friendly enough for my older brother to get a part time ...
My grandfather was the son of German immigrants. He lived in Dover Ohio where he worked in a steel mill. He was friends with Mooney Warther another master craftsman in his own right. If you are ever in Dover check out Warthers museum or Google it. Most of my grandfather’s work was done before I was born (born in 1957) during the 30s and 40s. When ivory became scarce he and Mooney would go to pool halls to get the old cue balls for the ivory. The type of work he did seems to be a thing...
I have been looking around and I have found the perfect sign that i want to make. I will use a 6’‘X2’ peice of cedar and carve ”Love Shack” on it then I will paint the inside with a glossy black paint!!!!
During the nasty cold winter months its hard for me to work in the shop. Weekdays it is nearly impossible as it takes a good 1 1/2 hours to warm the shop up with the wood stove, and I’ve had some family stuff going on through the winter that has eaten up much of my weekend time. However, it was in the mid 40’s today (a heat wave I tell you), so spring is just around the corner. Hopefully I’ll have some sawdust making to write about in the near future. Happy LJ birthd...
Finally, i broke some ground.(Literally) I have roughly two months before im in operation, but actually seeing the concrete hit the ground is exciting. I dont have much to say other than YEEEHHHH!!! There are a total of 8 weld plates that were installed in 24”x24” peers. I guess this pretty standard, but it is more substantial than i had imagined. It is definately going to be solid. I ran two electric boxes and conduit in strategic locations. Hopefully the layout I ...
