I think I am becoming anti-laminate

12-25-2010 05:30 PM by richgreer | 8 comments »

I am already anti-plan. I don’t like making anything by following someone else’s plan. Figuring out how to make it is half the fun and I often change my mind about a dimension or joinery technique during the making process based on how it looks to me. I am anti-hardware. Whenever possible, I like to make things that contain no metal. Probably no one else cares, but for me it is a point of honor to not resort to the use of metal. I am anti-fancy design. I think the bea...

Taj Mahal, Take a Giant Step. I believe this is a Monkees tune, but I think Taj gives it a little more “feeling”

New Basement Workshop Pics #1: Floor cured & Ridgid R4511 unpacked

01-18-2011 05:11 AM by shimster | 6 comments »

This may not look like a woodworking post at first glance, but do read on…. I’m afraid to look back at the date of when I last posted to LJs regarding a suggestion on finish ceiling height in my basement dig out. Well, After 9 months of design/ planning/ construction, my basement is dug out & the slab is poured. A brief history of events: Our house was built in 1852 & had 5 foot ceilings & dirt floors when we bought it. It had an old boiler (70’s) that ven...

Traffic Light Project #2: Finally some progress....

02-09-2011 02:31 AM by souichiro | 1 comment »

Today marked two days in a row of progress on my light project. This, after over a week of beating my head on the bench with the electronics on the lighting. But….. finally I have the basic light circuit wired and working, and tested with the actual lights that will be mounted in when it’s complete. Now I’m waiting for the paint to dry, and assembly of the “lamp” portion tomorrow. I’ll post as soon as I can get it together, and post a video as soon as I...

Need an upper guard for my 1950’s Skil radial arm saw. I have an old parts breakdown and need part #9231 for a 16” blade. Anyone suggest where to look besides the common on-line shops?

Shoe Bench #5: Varnish time

04-05-2011 02:42 AM by Jeremy Greiner | 0 comments »

Finishing the shoe bench took considerably longer than I had planned on. After a week of finishing,and a few lost days from tool assembly I decided that I would like to set up some sort of finishing area not in my garage so I can work on other items or just tinker around while the finish cures on my project. I did a quick setup on my enclosed patio area so now I can apply varnish on my projects and still tinker about in my garage. The picture isn’t very good because of the sunlig...

Endless winter

04-18-2011 07:31 PM by jbschutz | 5 comments »

Just when you get your hopes up; the weather man says we are in for another dose of winter. I sure hope he is wrong, but he is predicting 6-10 inches of snow for SE Minnesota, Tuesday into Wednesday. I actually put the snowblower away and got my boat out of storage a week ago. Foolish optimism, I guess. If this is suppose to make me appreciate spring more….....

Life #2: Tornados

05-02-2011 12:31 PM by Ocelot | 0 comments »

Well folks, there’s a lot of wood on the ground around here. The tornadoes came through on Wednesday. I thank God that my family and friends are OK. Unfortunately, not everyone here was so fortunate. At my 3-acre place, I had no damage to house or shop, but lost a few trees – including 2 white oaks 100 years plus, a couple of young wallnuts, a medium size cherry and a few other small trees. If anybody has a portable mill or a way to get some logs, I’m sure there a...
