"Teller of Life’ as I Now Live Wood" --by RusticWoodArt #7: Wood Scripts From Dark Wood

06-05-2007 02:04 PM by frank | 1 comment »

Wood Scripts From Dark Wood: —-an introduction; a creative writer of the words of woods, i am often enamored by any copy of my species, who would stop and sit awhile, to so share in the bliss of what has been written. Can I tell a story from the hearth of the forest, while the embers of the charcoaled goods are still steaming forth with frosted screeching, as rustic wood spirits sit around the galactic stones, warming their hands to the anticipation of another fire breathed...

I have spent the the better part of the last three days reorganizing. I know winter I will breathing down my neck before I know it if I don’t get a good flow to my shop I’m afraid I’ll lose steam this winter. in the past, with my shop just being off of the kitchen, and the fact that the washer and dyer, is out there, it seem to be where all the junk got dumped, usually on my table saw. This year we are empty nester’s so, I am hoping this won’t be a problem anymo...

The Craftsman's Path #12: The joy of a well tuned hand plane

10-17-2007 05:50 PM by Mark Mazzo | 9 comments »

I spent some time in the shop this past weekend working on a couple of final tasks for a new table before starting on the finishing. I had a choice on how to do the work and opted for a simple block plane. If you’ve done work with well-tuned hand tools, then you know how my experience was…either way, you can read about it here.

ok – I’ve built my router table jig and have the materials milled and ready to go. Now I see the problem with my jig. I can’t see what I’m doing from behind. These pictures will tell the story. (And no I’m not stick thin but you can’t take a picture of yourself. My eyes really are better looking than this—- but this is eye level This shows the line of sight. The jig is up next to the router bit – as you can see – I CAN’T see wh...

"This Old Mold House" #7: Making a deal on a house full of mold…what’s up with that?

12-09-2007 04:51 PM by Dusty | 12 comments »

Most people I know who are contemplating a home purchase, hire a licensed inspector to analyze the house in great detail and prepare a report for them so they can make an informed decision. I take an entirely different approach. If it’s not an old crack house, ready for condemnation, full of mold, falling down, in need of desperate repairs or a bull dozer, then I’m not interested in buying it anyway. I wouldn’t know what to do with a house that wasn’t sorely in need of wo...

My Adventure in Home Remodelin...the Wrong Way, Part Two

01-05-2008 06:00 PM by tat2grl | 1 comment »

The next job was in an older home. We were redoing a laundry room and bathroom. The walls were lath and plaster and my job was to smooth it down so drywall could be hung over it. I wasn’t at that job site long before I was sent down the street to work on a floor. This house was an older home as well and they were having tile put in the kitchen. The stuff we were laying down was for the tile to be put on top of. So the nails had to be sunk in because it could cause the tiles to bre...

Old Craftsman Scroll saw, # 103-0404 or 103-0403

01-24-2008 02:25 AM by Bob42 | 11 comments »

I picked up at a yard sale a Craftsman 24” scroll saw, model #103-0404. It is the same as a 103-0403. Does anyone have a manual for this? I tried OWWM but it’s not there. The machine works great but it would be nice to have the manual. Did I mention I only paid $25.00.

First Project of 2008 Complete

02-13-2008 04:42 PM by jackd942 | 5 comments »

Well, I finally finished my Kitchen Secretary project and I must admit that I learned a ton! It’s actually been done for a week or so, but I just mounted the cabinet and installed all the hardware yesterday. This was a fun project…definitely rewarding as my wife absolutely loves it. Now she’s picked out a jewelry/lingerie chest she wants, so I guess it’s back to the shop after it warms up just a bit. This jewelry chest promises to be a big learning experience consideri...
