Hi, I’m a Swedish part time cabinetmaker. This is the first time I can present a “proper” documentation of a project. Enjoy :) https://youtu.be/-RKHqrMsfjY
This is the last will and testament of my sure to be over budget, behind schedule attempt to bring order to the chaos that is my shop/garage. I started this project last weekend but was too ashamed, and tired to actually blog it. But I think the blogging will help my psychosis.I’m sure I’ll rewrite things in following posts. But the creative juices are flowing (64 ounces of Diet Dr Pepper can do that to your brain) so I’m diving in. Buckle up….cause this train has no t...
Hello. I made a video for my business website. If you are interested in learning some species common in northeastern US, here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugQuAahHsz8
Hello, As I mentioned in my blog, not much going on for woodworking this weekend, as I am hanging out at my parents. Today my mother and I went into Ames and had a lovely day. I ran across a bit of carving, in the form of a gnome. It was carved by the Mid Iowa Wood Carvers. It was an accidental find and I took a picture and included it the blog. Today’s blog is mostly just photos. There are lots of butterflies too. Tomorrow I head home and will get back to playing around in ...
I’m building a couple of bird feeders for a client, friends of our family, he tried to look for shaker shingles for the roof covering, but could not find them, so he opted to buy a couple packs of contractor shims, the run of the mill type you find at a local lumberyard. So today as I was looking for ways of how to apply these to the octogon roof, I found a pleasing effect of fanning them from rafter to rafter, it gave a swirly look from the edges, so I decided to document this in a...
I’m sure I am just missing the posts on this subject but thought maybe somone could sedn me in the right direction. I am buying a new house which has enough room on the lot to build a stand alone shop (good planning, huh?) if any money is left over from the house. I want to start designing the shop and although I am an experienced CAD user I am new to Sketchup and would like to save myself some time by using prebuilt models of standard woodworking tools. Can anyone point me to sketchu...
Did you ever wake up and just know it was going to be a good day? I love when that happens! I feel like that today. (And, no. I don’t think I am “jinxing” myself. I don’t believe in that – although I do believe somewhat in Karma) Yesterday was a great day. There was no particular reason, but things just went according to plan – and then some. I got all my files in order and backed up on the new drive, I filled some orders, I made contact with the two ...
Things are progressing! I’m excited to see something bench shaped in my developing shop! I decided to top it with 3 layers of 3/4 plywood topped with a 1/4” of hardboard. I also want to band the edge with 1-1/2” x 4” hardwood banding (probably red oak or maybe meranti as my local yard has lots of it). I’ve got this old vice that I picked up super cheap. It needs a bit of clean up and a coat of paint, but it’s totally functional. The bench, not reall...
If you have seen my previous video about my wooden table saw wing, you already know that I plan on using it as my router table. So the next step in the evolution is to install the router plate into the wooden table saw wing. There isn’t a lot to it. I chose to build a frame, using the actual router bit as a template. Then, using the frame as a pattern, I used a flush trim router bit at the correct depth to cut out the recess for the router plate. All I needed for this application is...
Karson:After several days I have got most of my muscles back and have made a significant improvement. My test scores this week went to an acceptable level and my kidneys are back to normal. I’m still in the “can’t do much” situation but every day gets me stronger. Today the surgeon called and scheduled the surgery for next Wednesday, with tests on the Monday before. Good news. Sandra does have all your details and she found the recorded message, thank you.Got to t...
