Save The Children #4: A New Barrier; Need Some Help

10-14-2007 01:19 AM by MsDebbieP | 6 comments »

2 skateboards; 1 finished; 1 to go. Skateboard 1: logo was created using the Omni-Gel process and I think it has turned out quite well. Skateboard 2: I couldn’t get a photo copy today to repeat the process and my backup plan is a plastic window decal that you print on. The plastic is like the material used with overhead projectors. The back is tacky so it will stick to smooth surfaces but it can be removed and re-used. Test A: I printed the decal (it looks great) and I tried us...

Cain Guitar #2: A live performance of "Sleepwalk"

12-05-2007 12:26 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 22 comments »

Hi!I have previously submitted a soundtrack of the Cain Guitar. The other day My Son brought over a DVD of a Graduation party. The father of the Graduate arranged to have music by a band made up of himself, playing the drums, & some other friends. They got together , & practiced a few times. It turned out really nice. My Granddaughter did the camera work on this, I think she did a fantastic job. I hope you all enjoy this.

"This Old Mold House" #9: The first "surprise" arrives...Let the work began

01-01-2008 03:05 PM by Dusty | 19 comments »

After demolishing the basement and cleaning it out, I had a chance to assess the real condition of the plumbing, electrical, heating, and various other parts of the house. Not good! I confirmed pretty much what I expected and that for which I had planned, and budgeted. This included breaking up the floor and replacing all the floor drains and pipe, the plumbing needed to be redone. The electrical wiring was in dire shape. The heating plant (hot water hea...

Woodworking Awards 2008 - 2x4 #7: The end is near !

01-21-2008 01:17 AM by Zuki | 9 comments »

Well the end is getting near for Project X – 2×4. I had a little “oopsie” when dry fitting the pieces and had to rely on my homemade edible glue to stick the “oopsie” back together. Actually there are better words to express how I felt, but as this is a family site . . . “oopsie” will do just fine. The pics above are from yesterday and I have arranged Project X and its twin in order to deceive the average woodworker. You can only decipher what it actually is if you ha...

Just A Little Progress

02-10-2008 03:53 PM by Paul | 6 comments »

Pretty day yesterday (sorry about that you Northerners) Felt too guilty to neglect all the yard work that needed doing, but I did get an hour to shape and form the handles for this tool box. I was thinking that I needed to be taking pictures, but I was too lazy to go get the camera. Sorry.

Church Lectern #1: Interesting project

03-26-2008 04:44 AM by pashley | 4 comments »

I’ve been engaged in building a church lectern for my friend’s startup, rather small church. Tried making a technical drawing in Bryce, and something got translated wrong, and now I have something way too huge, starting to look more like an altar rather than a lectern! Back to the drawing board.

Conference Table for Local Church #6: Straight edge problem solved...for now.

07-13-2008 04:36 AM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 2 comments »

OK. You guys in the freight industry hit the back button. You don’t want to read this blog. Now that those guys are gone… the cost of shipping the 144 inch straight edge clamp is $252.00! Making to total bill around $345.00. Can’t do that so, I made some calls. I found this piece of aluminum straight stock for $62.00 locally. I picked it up this morning. It’s 3” wide, 1/4” thick and 12 feet long. I took a picture of it with my 4 foot ruler to give you...
