My planer has a new home on top of it and it works like a dream. No problems in assembly, the rockler plans are easy to read and follow. It took me about 8 hours to get it all done, but that was mostly because my festool tracksaw setup was out of square and it took me awhile to figure out what was off. Once fence and track were again at 90 degrees, all cuts were dead on. I think I need to also replace the plastic splinter guard on the track but that’s for another time. I put some h...
In the last post, I described the inputs and outputs to the system but left the main guts for this post. First, lets define a couple features which we should try to build into the black box: The shop vac should turn on when a tool turns on – this is a simple one but its the base functionality to which we build off of. Provide the ability to run small loads off the system without turning on the DC. Provide the ability to connect multiple tools to the system, all which can indepe...

I have started my next project that will certainly test my abilities in all aspects of woodworking and marquetry. I have decided to construct a jewelry box with bombay curves. I have never built a box with curves and never veneered a curved surface so it will certainly test me. I had problems trying to locate a web site with designs that took my fancy (some good designs on craftmanspace well above my ability). I sat down looked at the wife’s quilting books and come up with some designs ...
Tired from a hard day at the gym, strumming my guitar getting ready for Sunday Morning at church, pondering the sunshine sparkiling off the snow, I wonder, WHY IS IT SNOWY AND COLD IN ABBOTSFORD!!! As Don can attest to, the lowermain land is a 98% snow free zone, but this year we’ve had two large dumps. Now I grew up in the North and Love snow, but the thought of going out to my frozen shop to finally finish that Media center I’ve been at for over a year I wimp out…too col...

What number are we up to at this point? About 300? Anyway, this one came to me yesterday in the shop. You know you’re a lumber jock when you drop a chisel and as you catch it, by the blade of course, you think three things; (1) “thank God I didn’t chip the blade”, (2) ””at least I didn’t bleed on this work” and (3) “wow, that cut is so clean I won’t even need stitches!!”
—-more thoughts on, Wood Cognition ....and in this walking out the lay of land, I sat a while and took some thought, this tea of wood is quite the drink, all filled with herbs of heady moss…. —-till in the sitting i soon was shown, that much we pass is soon not seen, and then i knew the why of wisdom hid, since each must learn out of cisterns they have filled…. I was sitting here looking into this spot of wood space, while thinking of the coming days ahead...
Here are a couple of pics from yesterday morning (Thursday May 31) and this morning (Friday, June 1, 2007)...we lost almost all of Wednesday due to rain, but the framer made up for it on Thursday and Friday. The roofer is supposed to start Saturday, should have the shingles done in a day. Thursday morning and the rafters are already half done. Friday morning and the guys are putting the tar paper on the roof, and the other framer is putting in the bird blocks and slats hanging a...
Well my wife has decided to have a garage sale to get rid of all my unused equipment, among hoards of other things. What is funny about this is she is really a go getter getting rid of my stuff, yet hers she needs so badly she can’t live without it. She did say I could enlarge my shop and get a wood burner for it, which tickled my fancy. whatever my fancy is. This will give me much needed room, you guys remember what my shop looked like, I’m still cleaning that up I’m wonder...
