The Santa Ana's #1: Huff, puff and blow all your trees down

05-13-2014 04:26 AM by scruboak51 | 1 comment »

We had some pretty sustained Santa Ana's last week. The strongest gust as measured at the local weather observatory was only 43mph (~60kph), but it was a very consistent period of wind over two days. For those not familiar with the term, it is a very strong system of wind usually warm and dry that can clock upwards of 80mph (120kph). While making my morning coffee I noticed one of the trees near the house swaying a bit more than usual. It died during a late season drought which we didn&...

Shop Remodel #2: Making use of new space - shop layout

09-27-2014 03:29 AM by Rick M | 10 comments »

My shop is 16×20 which sounds like a decent size except only about half is usable for woodworking, the other half is storage, lumber, etc. Here is how I started the week. This is where I’m at.

Below is another clamp rack I built this week to hold most of my bar clamps: Thanks for reading.
