Well I have a nice size building that just needs to get organized and planned out properly. We just bought this place and decisions, decisions. For the first time in my life I’m spoiled, I have alot of space and now I don’t know what to do with it!. The machines are few as of yet, a Shop Smith 510 sort of :) with bandsaw, a router table and combo sander. To keep the place clean I have a Jet 1100. Picked it up quite nicely from a fella upgrading to a monster system and sold ...
I am hoping that some of you can make some suggestions on what I should make next. Whatever I make I will do a blog on how I made it. If it’s really involved, maybe a multi part blog. Well, the house is already full of furniture so I can’t make anything big unless I get rid of something. (Very hard to do since I built most of it.) Here’s what I’m looking for: 1. Something I have never made before. 2. Hopefully something unique.3. Something that will expand my ...
Any good ideas on a first project for a boy? Knowing me, I’ll probably ask him to do something beyond his skill level. Thanx in advance. Kevin
Here in Canada, we have the RRSP or registered retirement savings plan. I’m sure the USA has something very similar. It is basically a savings account that allows deposits to be made each year and then allows you to deduct the deposit from your taxable income. The amount you can deposit eac year is limited by a number of factors that aren’t important to today’s discussion. That topic is timing. If you are like most people who take advantage of this program, you make y...
I like to grab a PDF copy of the manual for anything I own. I couldn’t find this manual with a google search, but found it through the website.
Hey guys, Out of the six compartments that I inoculated with Chlorociboria Aeruginosa in my petri dishes, one has absolutely settled and started growing and producing xylindein. Still I have to clean them every few days as the molds that invited themselves to the party are tough to fight, so I opted for the “gardening” method and just mow them out when they become too invasive. Using a lab culture medium would have prevented that from happening, but as I already stated in the p...
How does a $500 cash prize sound?! It’s time to get busy again. The LumberJocks Woodworking Awards Summer 2011 are officially here and this time we again have a very creative theme that should result in many amazing entries. As always, the goal is to highlight the creativity of all of our members (regardless of skill level). Here is the theme: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Birds of a Feather – Yes, we are talking birdhouses. Build a birdhouse, any birdh...
Workshop additions, modifications, adaptations and installations #5: The Basic Biggies; serious meter spinning.
It all began when I was building my workbench (blogged here). I was using my first (dedicated woodworking tool purchased) #5 BORG buck-bros Jack plane and it broke. It was working quite well after I learned to tune it, but the materials it is made of are just too weak and flimsy and the yoke that controls the blade travel just broke and became useless: I was bummed, but hey it was a good learning experience, and I have been keeping an eye open for a replacement #5 ever since. not reall...
