Concrete Countertop Series #10: Final Entry

01-08-2011 03:05 AM by Siegel_KenEvil | 3 comments »

This will be my final blog entry. I’ll post a finished project after applying calk and getting the plumbing done. The below image shows what it will look like but it’s not really plumbed. Need the finish to harden first. Since my last entry, I filled in the voids again with just a cement/water mix and sanded to 200 grit with and orbital sander. A little hand work was required in the corners. I then used a copper sulfate (root killer) / water mix for the color according...

Just for Fun... #42: A Slow Start in 2011...

01-29-2011 05:03 AM by littlecope | 19 comments »

... or, “How to make Something completely different from what you planned…” Last month, just before Christmas, I was told that my Dad’s car was going to be sold. I asked the price, and it was a fair one, so I bought the car for Debbie and I… Isn’t it a Beauty!! LOL… That boat-shaped thing in the snow, was my Father’s 1992 Volvo. He loved and babied it, so it’s in terrific shape for a vehicle nearly 20 years old. It’s now ours and, by...

Mason Dixon Toy Making 2011

02-17-2011 05:28 AM by Karson | 14 comments »

I was chatting in a message to A1Jim and telling about the work that I did today and I got to thinking about something that has come up in making our toys. The newspaper article this year brought a new person who wanted to volunteer on helping make toys. But, he has a full time job and is not retired so he wanted to do it at his home in nights and weekends. So it was agreed that he would help up make our Lincoln Log Cabin toy. This requires about 5,000 ft of 3/4 square stock. We are mak...

Hand Tools #2: Wow, hand planes are addictive!

04-04-2011 03:32 AM by MikeGCNY | 10 comments »

Last week I received the first of a few hand planes that I purchased off of eBay. I quickly took it down into my shop, clamped a piece of 1×8 pine into my Workmate, and planed until there was just about 1 inch left. The sound, the smell, the feel and the site of the shavings exiting the plane—totally addicting. It is so addicting and relaxing that I am trying to figure out a way to use and hand plane in my office. Honest, I’m not kidding. Whenever things get too stress...

Tool gloat: UNISAW! #5: Mobile base, cable holder, and more fence work.

04-18-2011 02:07 AM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

My mobile base arrived last Thursday and I’ve been chomping at the bit to get my work week over so I could put it on the saw. Today it went together pretty easy with one exception: the directions have some problems. If you buy one of these, HTC3000 Heavy Duty base, it tells you that you need a 1/2, a 7/16 and some other wrenches all standard sizes. NOT!!!! This thing is metric through and through. It was a small annoyance but once I realized what was going on, it went together really ea...

Workshop Do Over #2: First we clean up and draw the plans

05-01-2011 11:00 PM by Ken Fitzpatrick | 6 comments »

I went out this morning to putter and ended up doing about 5 one hour sessions with coffee breaks inbetween. We really couldn’t do anything yesterday because my youngest grandson made his first communion so we spent the day with the whole family which is always fun to do. I have always tried to live by a rule that I saw somewhere that says “every time you go in the shop, put 10 things away”. Don’t know where I saw it but for many years it was a hard and fast rule ...
