Well i have finally gotten back on the kitchen remodel. It started with some demo And then realizing that the window wasn’t square I decided to fix that and Add some framing. Then insulation and vapor barrier. Finally the sheetrock, new lighting, and cabinets. Ohh and the granite guys came and put in the new counter and sink. Still to come are the doors and drawer fronts, more pine countertop, and the new floor. Also a few more cabinets but i have decided to put the floor in fi...
Dec 10/10Thanks to everyone for their financial and emotional support to Duane Moore. Here is his reply, following our donation drive: the total raised was 681.00 that’s not to bad I must say and will pay for two months of Cobra insurance. Without the Cobra my family would lose everything we have so it makes a big difference. Myself and my family are so greatfull for all of the kind hearts that donated, to you Grizzman for getting things started and being a good listener to the Lo...

Hello LJ’s, Last week I started my own blog with the help of blogger.com I also wanted to do something like this to come in contact with more woodworkers.

I’ve build an a translator and I want to know what you guys/girls think about my first setup. All comments are very wel...
I done started repainting the radial arm saw, its looks much better than it did. :) I am using a Rustoleum Copper Hammer Finish. Working on clean the post!
Got a few more things done on the boat, starting with attaching the bow cap. I ended up changing the shape a little bit to help blend with the side caps and decided on one more dowel at the bow and splines where the bow cap meets the side caps. Once the bow cap was in place, I worked on trimming the walnut diamonds flush with the cap rails. I did this with a trim router, a straight bit and a shim on half of the baseplate that the bit was set flush with. I was then able to nibble away ...

It got me thinking… Where do you all get your epiphany?
Time for final assembly. My fiance’ will turn a knob and install it as a celebration when the project is complete. First, I need to mount the free lower drawer supports over a spacer. I made the drawer supports so I could control the levelness of the drawer and the reveal once all the parts were together. First I cut the spacer oversized & will trim it later: Tack it in place with glue & brads (a consequence of waiting to the end for a final fit means I have to resort to ...
