We had a really good day yesterday and I put a pretty big dent in my holiday list. Although I don’t tend to go overboard on getting gifts. I usually give either something that I made with wood or painted (or both) and people seem to like that. Some of you may remember from last year that one of my biggest passions that I have is cool boxes. This year is no different. We have some places here that really do a great job of stocking cool and unusual boxes for gift giving and keeping...
Raining and dreary outside in North Texas today so it was a good day to be inside playing in the shop. I spent quite a lot of time working on my child’s size chair set for my friend. I’ve discovered that working on the floor is a pretty good place to be for someone with balance issues. It actually works really well. I put a piece of mdf on the floor so it was a flat surface to work on and just plopped down and started my assemblies, painting and some sanding. I got a lot done and ...
After recently moving to a new house, I decided that now I have more room, I should start up my wood working hobby again. For years I’ve wanted to get a scroll saw, and I saw one for sale in the local Kijiji classifieds for cheap, so I went out and got it for $25. It was an old Delta, and it rattled and vibrated badly and it was almost impossible to change blades… the original blade clamp hardware was long gone, and instead there was just a small square headed bolt that would cl...
Well, the temperature in MN has turned to normal for this time of year, from the 40s to the teens, and working in my garage has slowed a bit. On top of that both my wife and a friend have asked for other projects, which of course, I am happy to put in line after this one. But it is cold in the garage (workshop) and metal planes rob heat from the hands faster than a politician with a sweet tooth grabbing a lollipop from a child! Progress must continue. So I will start work on the apron, I ...
No real progress to speak of. Instead of eliminating clutter, I added to it! I was checking CL the other day and spotted an add for a $265.00 HD Gift Card for $140.00!!! Yup, $125.00 of FREE money. I combined the (free) $125.00 with $80.00 of real money of my own and purchased…........... I’ve been eyeing this sander for a couple of weeks. JACKPOT!!! And Damn, It looks great next to it’s BIG brother! Now that I have a “workable” shop, it’s time...
Actual cutting was done on the table saw! We’re getting closer to true workshop status! http://secondwindworkshop.blogspot.com/2012/02/co-workshop-update-7-i-made-first-cut.html
Making and hanging the door using “chunky” butt hinges. Oh and the end credits are at the wrong end….yes I noticed that.
Hellofellow LJ’ers. A few years ago, Gerber Legendary Knives shot a TV commercial, and in a moment of pure lunacy, decided to include yours truly in the advertisement. The “tough guy” attitude shown in the video is pretty ironic, as anyone who knows me understands what a big baby I truly am. I once got a splinter and cried about it for 2 days (I can show you the scar, if you want). Enjoy the vid.
Note:Due to unforeseen circumstances, my previous blog posts are not viewable at this time. So if there are any questions about this project, leading up to this assembly process, I’ll be more than happy to answer them. . I did not consider the fact that, with the curve of the frame, that the cleats would need clearance in order to have my slats close together like I want. I sanded a profile on each cleat as seen in this first photo. However, if I had thought about this before, it ...
