Rushing through the home repairs. #7: Fixing drywall problems and repainting that *&#$ cathedral ceiling...

04-03-2012 06:41 PM by dbhost | 1 comment »

After hurricane Ike blew through, I was left with some cracks in my sheet rock. The inspectors / engineers I had look at it told me the issue was because of the wind load / vibration during the storm. Sadly my insurance didn’t cover that damage, so I need to get my butt up a ladder to re-tape and mud where the storm split my ceiling, and then repaint. No big deal right? It would appear that my 6’ step ladder won’t be sufficient, but that’s okay I can borrow a taller...

Upgrading my shop! #4: Quick and cheap router table

04-17-2012 10:26 PM by Kevin | 5 comments »

I’ve been wanting to get my new router table built for a while. I could have used it on almost every project I have been working on. It was just time to replace my old skil router and table. I got a router lift for my Bosch router from my in-laws for Christmas. So today I squared up a piece of laminated particle board that I had gotten from work for free. Then I cut a few pieces of laminated particle board I had laying around the shop to make a fence. I still need to get a router base p...

My first real 'woodworking' project

05-04-2012 03:31 AM by Mike_D_S | 8 comments »

A couple or pics of my first real woodworking project. Installed oak treads and risers in my house. Most of the cuts are basic, but the landing, return tread and newel post are all me. Stained in gunstock and sealed with a floor grade polyurethane.

Please Doctors, beat me up!

05-18-2012 06:26 PM by KnickKnack | 21 comments »

There have been a number of threads over the years about criticism, or lack thereof, on projects. I haven’t done any serious woodworking for a few weeks – I’ve made some shelves, but that was more a “job of work” rather than anything creative (I tried to be a bit creative, but what with time-pressure too…).I’ve spent a lot of time looking through my previous stuff, and at a lot of the pictures I’ve grabbed over the years, and doing drawings, ...

New Shop! #4: Building supplies have arrived!

08-02-2012 03:54 PM by Ryan Haasen | 2 comments »

Last week the 32’ x 12’ bi-fold door arrived from Manitoba. We used the mini Deere excavator to unload it and walk it to the shop. Some relatives from Holland were visiting and assisted in the moving of the door. Yesterday the building supplies arrived for the additions onto the shop. From what I saw, the was just trusses for the roof and tin for the exterior, so I imagine supplies for the walls are yet to come. They say the building will start by next monday at the latest. ...

J. Kellogg Jack Plane

09-01-2012 11:26 PM by nobuckle | 13 comments »

Today I visited a local thrift store. While I was there I picked up an old wooden jack plane. Here it is; As you can see it’s in pretty rough shape. I have to clean it up and make a new tote. The sole is not as flat as I’d like it to be and neither of the sides are square to the sole. I began to clean it up a bit and found a maker’s mark. After some magnification and some investigation I discovered that it was made by J. Kellogg of Amherst Massachusetts. I came to thi...

This blog is aimed at documenting my thought process about this hobby and I hope it can server as a guide to newcomers looking for help. Let me give you the background … We lived in Charlotte, NC for 6 years. We had my son, and were pregnant with my daughter when the neighborhood “turned”. Driveby shooting, armed home invasions, police helicopters, etc… Needless to say, we decided to move back home. We’re both from New England, so coming back was good f...
