My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1394: A Perfect World - Panel 13

09-02-2014 12:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I took the day to do some catching up on things around the house. After the previous few days of working, I needed to do some things like tidying up things and some cooking. My neighbors had given me some zucchini and Keith's mom some fresh blueberries, so I made some bread with them. I think they came out nice, but they were almost too moist. Although are certainly edible. It seems that summer is going to go out with a bang this year. While it was overcast and windy, it was quite dr...

A Tool Story....

10-20-2014 06:48 PM by handsawgeek | 3 comments »

In last week’s blog entry, I presented some photos from a trip Mrs. handsawgeek and I had taken to Korea four years ago. In that same digital photo file were other shots that reminded me of a ‘tool story’ associated with that trip. During our visit, we were guests for a couple of weeks at the home of her eldest sister and brother-in-law in the city of In Cheon. In the Korean tradition, I refer to this brother-in-law as ‘Kun Hyong Nim’ which translates into ‘Eldest Brother-In-Law’...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1442: Organizational Triumphs

11-12-2014 12:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Once again I got the urge to organize things. Seeing as I was kind of in between projects, it seemed like as good a time as any. Since we are already half way through November, seeing my little 'All Season Tree' adorned it Halloween ornaments began to kind of bother me. While I loved how it looked, it was just time to put them away until next year. So I went to the basement and retrieved the containers that I stored my Halloween items in and packed everything away.I still have my...

2014 - the long and short year

12-23-2014 09:24 PM by Nighthawk | 0 comments »

What a year… It has both been a long year and a short year… confusing I know, basically it seemed like a very short year work wise it just whizzed by. But on the flip side a long year that seem to drag on at home with the major project the bar. At one stage I thought I wasn’t going to get it to a usable stage for xmas and new year due to water proofing it, then other little things hampered my efforts including motivation and a little depression. My pride and joy motorcycl...

Powermatic 1500 bandsaw

01-21-2015 07:54 PM by Bill1933 | 0 comments »

I recently purchased a PM1500 Powermatic Bandsaw. I set it up and everything was working fine. A couple of weeks later, I went to use it on a project and it wouldn’t turn on or start. I ck’d the manual and everything ck’s out. This machine has a magnet that controls the on switch that is supposedly for safety. I think this is my problem. I want to rewire the machine and bypass this feature which looks pretty straightforward from the wiring diagram in the manual. No one exce...

I'm building an Army #11: Parting Shot

03-05-2015 03:19 AM by Gianni | 0 comments »

Well last night I used blue painters tape to mask off all the wood and grout the tile field. I’m pretty happy with how everything turned out, although putting down grout with an uneven/carved border made it a bit of a challenge. There are definitely some low spots in the grout, but for me, pretty darned good. Tonight my son and I used elmers glue to stick felt to the bottom of all the pieces. We cut oversized felt squares, spread the glue with our fingers, and held them with press...

Poor Man's Tools #5: Turning Accessory

03-09-2015 01:29 PM by handsawgeek | 8 comments »

This week’s Poor Man’s Tool is born of an idea that I learned about from a gentleman who turned beautiful aspen wood vases and sold them on consignment at my Step-Dad’s art gallery. Possibly, many of you who are experienced turners may have seen something like this before. Some of his pieces were decorated with a series of thin dark bands at various locations. I learned that these were made by holding a thicker-gauge wound guitar or piano string against the piece as it turned. The f...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #34: "Hard Maple Rocks!" Headphones Rack - Mounted

03-11-2015 12:16 AM by technoslick | 0 comments »

In the My Projects section I posted the completion of a rustic headphones rack for my ancient audio-technica AT-703 headphones. Since that post I added another coat of Danish oil and a final finish of The Original Formula Johnson Paste Wax. Here is what it looks like without the headphones: ...and with the headphones: And here is a view of the main workstation area of the office, showing the rack in place: This was a rewarding build, true to my scratch-building nature ...
