Just returned from the Doctor. In a freak event, simply pulling a door open, I snapped a tendon band for the ring finger of my right hand. I have almost no grip (cannot even remove a jar lid), swelling, pain and lovely shades of blue and purple. A couple weeks of meds and “no impact” on my hand. If that does not help we will do steriod shots to the effected area, in the palm of my hand. The Doc tells me that is as painful as it sounds. I am wearing a brace to discourag...
Just a little time available to work… attached two sides together with glue and pocket screws. It’s starting to take shape. Using some recycled wood, as you can see. It’ll be hidden, so (at least for now), I’m not too worried about that. Tiger, the shop cat!
Yesterday turned out to be a good and productive day. I not only finished up my ornament set, but I also finished the drawings for the next project that I will be offering. I really liked working on these. After the large production order, it was a welcome change to do something that was so detailed and precise. It was a good exercise for my mind. I have decided to incorporate the birdcage into a design of a small plaque that I will be offering free on my site. I like to offer a fr...
For those who didn’t know about it or catch my first blog post about this, I figured we could have a fun little Frank Lloyd Wright inspired build off. The rules and time frame are all covered in the first blog in this series. The more the merrier. I hope to get a lot of people to enter. I think it will be cool to see what we all come up with. I must admit that I have not gotten much farther that checking out a couple of books online. I did finally decide on a house that I think...
just thought I’d attach my first shot at a sketch up idea for this table. I know it’s far from where it needs to be but at least the concept is there. This is the combination of the two tables mentioned in the post before. This will give us the storage we need, and allow me to showcase my other hobby (even if it’s just at Christmas time) :)
If I could issue a BOLO, Be On the Look Out, with the Lincoln Police I’d have him arrested. Mr. Potato Head got into my shop yesterday. Yeah, he was sick, ears ringing like an air raid siren and sinuses stuffed to 90 PSI. And I suppose he was cranked about trying out a new Porter-Cable 690LR router. But, I am going to have a hell of a hard time finding any forgiveness. Take a look at this. Gen. Sherman couldn’t have done any better marching through my shop: 1. Crap,...
My uncle was needing to expand his horse pasture, and thankfully I just happened to be there the day he was going to push this old tree down with a tractor and throw it in a slash pile. Just an ugly old rotten tree to him, but I saw it different. “HOLD ON Uncle Joe, let me get my chainsaw and take this tree out for you.” “What are you going to do with that”? he says…..well, just wait and see. A couple of hours later, using a chainsaw and...
Bought this rough-sawn, aged and cured pecan at auction today for $70: Eighteen boards between 5 and 8 inches in width, all 8’ long, all at least an inch thick. Good? Bad? Just ‘fine,’ or ?
I finally finished the assembly video!! It went together really easy. Nothing went wrong, it just took me a while to make sure everything was set up square/true/flush/etc…to my OCD expectations lol. I will be posting another video of the first start up and cut. If anyone has any questions about the assembly, please feel free to ask!Thanks for watching:)
