Here is a Sketch up drawing of what my finshed shop will look like, I hav put in my assembly table and also hav designed a router table, table saw with stand, workbench and an end bench with wall mounted cabinets. On the far wall I will keep tools such a band saw (when I get one) and anything else big :) Any suggestions feel free Thanks Callum
I just finished burning the Led Zepplin IV cover onto some but it won’t be in the project section until tomorrow because my camera is dead. I’m thinking HIM or Megadeth for the next one. Or maybe a CKY one uhh who knows what I’ll do cause I don’t.lol. Bye the bye I just learned la grange by zz top. Comments,ideas,questions are welcome. Pat
The counterweights mentioned in the last installment were done the same way as the cowcatcher parts. Substituting a spindle sander for the belt sander to sand the inside arc. They were centered on the wheel across from the small hole and glued. I also glued one wheel on each axle. I photocopied the bell bracket and glued it to a piece of 1/4” walnut. I cut and sanded part way down the piece on the outside line each side. Then using my jewelers drill I eyeballed the spot for the ...
Been tossing around an idea for a nearly minimalist bookcase idea. i think it might work, but i wouldnt load it with anything too heavy on all but the bottom shelf (or the very center of the middle!). I think, also, that the corner joints of the top and middle shelves would be strongest as through dovetails. the two sets of parallel beam supports in the back would be notched/dadoed to accept the shelves, which might be good partially notched as well. one missing dimension in the figure is the...
Took about 3 hours this afternoon. I am going to close out this series. Yes, still have a few more items that I need to do like seal the top and drill some more dog holes. But, by in large, the bench is complete. First item of the day, hand plane the legs, vise mount, and apron flush. Minor issue, this bench is getting heavy. I managed to get it down without much strife. I went to pick the thing back up when done and failed. Took 2 more attempts to right this beast. Amazingly enoug...
Hi, all. This is my only blog entry here … I do all my blogging in one blog, so I can keep track of it (and maybe remember to post on occasion). To read my blog, go to Confessions of a Polymath Housewife —Liz
Hello all, Just wanted to touch base with you all and let you know that I am in NH taking another class with Mike Dunbar in beautiful snowy Hampton. I arrived from PA in the early evening yesterday after 60 degree weather only to wake up to a snowy morning. The funny part is that I loaded my road bike into my car in case I would get some riding in on the beautiful coast…not. We worked on the seat and the crest today and I believe we will be finishing the seat and legging up the chai...
Here’s the process I used to make the new style templates. First I use the top level template from Blog 1 with the graph paper still attached. I ripped three 3/4” scraps to the desired height and ganged them together. The stop is set on the square so I only have to rotate the piece to get a matching cut the same distance from the other edge. These two initial cuts set the width of the middle spacer that determines the separation of the wings. And here’s the stack ...

As usual, I was in the woods early Saturday morning for my weekly hike. I decided to try a new venue this week. I’ve lived in my current home for 12 years, but have never hiked Putnam County Park, which is only 15 minutes from my house. In fact, I didn’t even know until very recently there were hiking trails there. Located on the back side of the town of Eleanor, WV, PCP is much more remote than my usual Trace Fork stomping grounds, which are much closer to the state capitol. F...
