Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #23: The voices in my head have been getting louder... but they have some good ideas...

07-19-2012 02:37 PM by StumpyNubs | 30 comments »

Remember when we were happy little school-boys spending the long summers playing with our tea sets and brushing our dolls’ hair? Those days were the best! I remember one year, I think it was right after fifth grade. That summer was a hot one, much like this year has been. To keep cool we ran through the cornfield every morning in our underwear with buckets over our heads, the moist dewy stalks smacking against our homemade “helmets” until we were dizzy. Grandma was always the fastest runner. ...

Tool thoughts #28: The Punch-list

08-02-2012 03:12 PM by NedB | 0 comments »

Morning all! [_]D Regular readers will know that I managed to complete a new tool build this week. I find myself at a bit of a cross-road point today though. My shop has been in the works going all the way back to ‘08, and just like any other good shop, it is never ‘really’ done. In my case that is definitely true. Three major points that need to be done in the next two months are: Finish installing the siding on the upper section of the shop, My shop has always quali...

Legare desk clone #6: duct tape and cardboard are my friends aka DIY garage spray booth

09-18-2012 11:11 PM by Roswell | 2 comments »

Well, them and PVC. Spraying dye, needed a cage. Getting close to finished. Not much time to type, but pictures are always fun. FYI, this is an explosion proof (USCG rated) marine exhaust fan for purging engine compartments of fuel fumes prior to starting the engine. I operate the booth at a partial vacuum until all the airborn spray has been evacuated, then I stick a box fan against the ground level filter to overpressurize the booth and speed the exchange of air. ...

Fabric Drawer Bookcase #2: Planning and Purchasing

11-10-2012 04:34 AM by cdkoch | 2 comments »

My wife gave birth to our second child a few weeks ago. In preparation, we moved our 2 year old daughter from the nursery into her “big girl” room. We spent upwards of about $2000 on a bedroom set, which we are hoping will last her the next 16 or so years. I’m already disappointed in the poor quality of workmanship. We made the furniture store replace the dresser once already and I just noticed that the replacement dresser drawers are starting to hang up. I took the dra...

Prairie Tool Co. Model 85 Grinder Restoration #3: Grinder tool rest

11-26-2012 05:08 AM by Woodknack | 0 comments »

Inspired by Rmac’s tool rest here: After building the base I decided to simplify things a bit, eliminating the sliding piece on top as I won’t be needing it and using a single pivoting support under the tool bed allowing greater range of angles. I used 3/4” material instead of 1/2”. It’s not quite done, there is a 1/4” dowel acting as the pivot pin until I get to the store and buy a 1/4” carriage bolt and wingn...

My TINY shop renovation #4: Back to the drawing board

01-13-2013 04:39 AM by StayinBroke | 0 comments »

Well, I have to thank forum member Gregn for going and messing with my plans. Lol. The vertical drawer idea he presented me with may be just the thing I need. They will create a lot more usable storage space , and there’s so many ways to customize these things for shop storage. The only limit is your imagination. Drawers, shelves, pegboard, pegboard and shelves, shelves and drawers, bins and shelves, Ding! light bulb!, I wonder if I can make that work, I’ll have to explore that id...
