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:)
Could never figure out if Archie was cursed or blessed with two lovely ladies competing for his affections. Last night found me in a similar situation. If I’m lucky, I get one night of shop time a week, usually after working my real job for 8 hours. Of course last night was extra special since there was a little package from eBay waiting for me… a hewing hatchet! Made sure the back was in good shape after having to deal with a full sized broad ax that was badly pitted. Unfort...
I went into the shop today just to fiddle around a bit. I decided to try some things I’d done before, but now on the one piece pens that I done from yesterday.The first pen I done today was zebra wood. The one I done a few days ago with the grain run across the pen looked so nice that I wanted to try out the one blank I had with the grain running the length of the blank. While it is a nice enough pen, I think it pales in comparison to the one I done before.Next, although I haven’t...
I have no affiliation with this company besides discovering them online for some hardwood flooring and discovering that they are also beginning to carry wood. Higgins flooring in Rochester NH. (north of Portsmounth, in souther NH, close to Eastern Mass and Southern Maine). Their flooring prices are excellent and they’ve been doing flooring for a long time. It’s a father/son business. They’re also starting to carry hardwoods. I needed a couple hundred board feet of red ...
Here are photos of my Dad’s beloved bench. He spent quite a few hours sitting at this bench repairing old clocks, cleaning watches, etc. I remember a time when he was repairing four or five cuckoo clocks. What a noise they all made! However, Mom wasn’t exactly happy with all the noise, but we kids loved watching the wooden birds pop out. As I said in my profile, I’m not a woodworker, but would like to access the knowledge here about how to refinish vintage wooden...
The drum cylinder section is now complete and reasonably ridged enough to handle. Now all I need is to decide what pattern to apply to the staves.Initially I was going to use my 3D router Carver but the narrow staves discounted it fairly early. I then thought about putting circles on each stave, but decided against it as being plain and boring after making the pattern and doing a test run and seeing the result. So I decided to go with an duplicated elongated pattern. I set about...
