Busy Shop #1: It is getting crowded

12-04-2009 07:51 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

It hit me while taking pictures of Garden Gate III that the shop is getting pretty busy. It also hit me that this would be a good time to try making a panoramic picture in Photoshop. I’ve got one project being finished, one in build mode, cutting boards in the milling stage, and some experimental pieces. I usually finish one project at a time, but since we now have to paint some walls in our bedroom and move the old bed to the guest room, things are stacking up. And with Christmas q...

Modine Hot Dawg Programmable Thermostat?

01-24-2010 10:09 PM by John Gray | 3 comments »

I have a Hot Dawg Heater, HDS 45, installed in my shop and I seem to forget to turn the thermostat down when I leave. Question is, can I install a regular residential set back\programmable thermostat such as found at any BORG? It appears to be a 24V system with 2 wires coming to the thermostat. Thanks, John

So the blog is updated with shop photos. It’s just too hard to copy that here: I wish LJ supported standard blog authoring software so I could post my entries here easily. Link to the Updated Shop Photos.

Woodworking forums vary a great deal...

02-16-2010 05:28 AM by Wood_smith | 3 comments »

...I’ve only been on this forum for about a week now, and I can’t begin to say thank you for all the welcoming messages, and the kind comments about my pouches. Another forum (that shall remain nameless) that I stumbled across and joined about a week earlier was pretty good, but had some negative comments at first. The forum suggested new members introduce themselves and talk a little bit about what they do. I did that, and some people said it was blatant advertising. I re-checked...

Shopsmith Restoration #4: We have identified the machine

02-26-2010 12:14 AM by PG_Zac | 5 comments »

At least I believe we have identified it. Shopsmiths have a very active user group forum, and the members there have helped me identify which model I have. It seems that my SS is a “Goldie” MK 5 (not MK V) model 500, manufactured somewhere from 1960 to 1963 by Magna Corporation before they went out of business in 1964. Shopsmith Inc. (founded in 1972) still supports the Magna machines. It seems that the clincher in identifying it was this warning label riveted onto the h...

90 Gallon Fish Tank Stand #1: First project entry, tank stand to date

03-15-2010 05:25 AM by opium89 | 2 comments »

Well here’s what I am working at at the moment, it’s a stand for a 90 gallon salt water tank. I’ve actually been “working” on this for over a year now. I was involved in a few other higher priority projects since I started this one and the weather here in Central Texas consistently gets in the way of progress. The stand itself is 3/4” birch ply with Aspen used as the trim and alder face frame. Basic pocket screw joinery with some routing of the trim p...

New Member and Build

04-23-2010 08:28 PM by Troy | 11 comments »

It hasn’t taken long to get too much work to keep me busy. Unfortunately, circumstances and administrative distractions took a toll on my time in the shop lately. It became apparent that I needed to hire someone to help me. The last thing I want is to turn away work, if possible. I spent the week looking for an employee and got several great responses. After many interviews, I was contacted by a woman, Miranda, who seemed very eager to apply and interview for the job. We finally met and talke...

This is my first post here. Just joined the site.Someone told me I could find the information or instructions here on how to do the glue up for the tumbling blocks illusion in segmentation. Hope I have posted this in the right area of the site.. Not sure if I will get a email response to my inquiry. If not I will check back later.
