Top Secret....Rocker for my Wife #2: BUSTED!!!

1332 days ago by bues0022 | 6 comments »

So much for trying to keep this top secret! My wife checked my email account from my phone last night when we were driving back from Thanksgiving. She was a bit curious about what this Top Secret project was all about. I tried minimizing the damage by admitting that: “I was thinking of building one, but said that I don’t have nearly the ability to make it. The thread was just feeling it out, and it bombed on me.” She seemed to buy the excuse for now. And to make sure this do...

Beginning Woodworker Just Starting Out #8: Belated X-mas tools

1304 days ago by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

Got home a little while ago with gifts from my in-laws – Christmas was belated this year as my wife is a nurse and had to work last night, so we went over to her parents house tonight. The tools I’m really excited about are the two new Lee Valley/Veritas plane blades I got. The #8 I bought had a blade that was extremely pitted and pretty much un-salvageable, so I put a 2 5/8” A2 blade on my list alone with a 2” for the cheapo #4 I have (on the premise that I’ll...

Rogue Fine Living #1: Natural Lines- the work of Jeffro Uitto

1281 days ago by Rogue | 0 comments »

If you’re a crab or a seagull on the Washington coast, there is one guy that has just become a part of the coastal scenery. His rugged figure just blends into the coastline. Blending in is helped by the fact that he’s usually lugging around a piece of drift wood that is commonplace on the inlet near Tokeland. His bent form under the weight of the wet wood perfectly mimics the shape of the gnarled piece he carries. (Read the rest of the artical at http://roguefineliving.com/)

Shop Layout Planning....at last I have the space but working on ideas

1269 days ago by CobraDriver | 9 comments »

Well I have a nice size building that just needs to get organized and planned out properly. We just bought this place and decisions, decisions. For the first time in my life I’m spoiled, I have alot of space and now I don’t know what to do with it!. The machines are few as of yet, a Shop Smith 510 sort of :) with bandsaw, a router table and combo sander. To keep the place clean I have a Jet 1100. Picked it up quite nicely from a fella upgrading to a monster system and sold ...

I need help in deciding what to build next.

1250 days ago by GaryK | 57 comments »

I am hoping that some of you can make some suggestions on what I should make next. Whatever I make I will do a blog on how I made it. If it’s really involved, maybe a multi part blog. Well, the house is already full of furniture so I can’t make anything big unless I get rid of something. (Very hard to do since I built most of it.) Here’s what I’m looking for: 1. Something I have never made before. 2. Hopefully something unique.3. Something that will expand my ...

Any good ideas on a first project for a boy? Knowing me, I’ll probably ask him to do something beyond his skill level. Thanx in advance. Kevin

basic financial planning #11: Retirement planning and timing.

1190 days ago by BigTiny | 12 comments »

Here in Canada, we have the RRSP or registered retirement savings plan. I’m sure the USA has something very similar. It is basically a savings account that allows deposits to be made each year and then allows you to deduct the deposit from your taxable income. The amount you can deposit eac year is limited by a number of factors that aren’t important to today’s discussion. That topic is timing. If you are like most people who take advantage of this program, you make y...

Spalters Inc. #5: Second attempt preliminary results: win

1141 days ago by Sodabowski | 13 comments »

Hey guys, Out of the six compartments that I inoculated with Chlorociboria Aeruginosa in my petri dishes, one has absolutely settled and started growing and producing xylindein. Still I have to clean them every few days as the molds that invited themselves to the party are tough to fight, so I opted for the “gardening” method and just mow them out when they become too invasive. Using a lab culture medium would have prevented that from happening, but as I already stated in the p...
