Hello allAnd me and my Family wishes all of you a very Happy Holidays. Hpoe you all get under the tree what you want. Just wanted you all to know that I’m still alive and kicking.

Again Happy Holidays and wishing you all have a wanderful time over these Joyuos Days. ...
Clearly, a company’s name has nothing to do with the quality of its products. Like most manufacturers, a tool company’s name generally falls into two categories: founder names or “named by committee.” Companies named after their founders are common (Stanley, DeWalt, Black & Decker, Bosch etc.). Other companies were likely named by committee with an emphasis on advertising appeal (Craftsman, Powermatic, Steel City etc.). One company name must have started as an inside joke that got out o...

Just so we are clear I am actually almost done with this project. I’m just now getting around to blogging it. When my wife and I got married we were the typical college kids. We wanted the entertainment center that showed of the electronics. Now a few years, and a few kids down the road we want to minimize the TV. I showed her the armoir that dennis built a while back and she said it didn’t impress her, so I decided to try and come up with something else. Well last Au...
This is the final entry for the baseball bats I made for my nephews. I understand that little leaguers can’t use wooden bats and that probably good considering the weight of these bats. I don’t think my nephews will be able to get a swing around on a curve ball do to the thickness and weight of maple. I understand the bats will find a nice spot next to their display of sports trophies. This project took me about 3-4 hours complete (over a few weeks) and if you have a lath...
I spend a lot of the time in the woods each weekend, catching up on my botany. I’ve always enjoyed woodworking, but as I concentrated on “making a living” through the years, I didn’t make much effort to fully enjoy those things that I was once passionate about. (I was a biology major in college.) I have become very passionate about understanding the woods I use in my hobbies – everything from recognizing them in their natural environment, to studying their mic...
New blog posting on my 12 n 12 challenge is up at Project Artistry Blog. Video coming shortly.
I don’t have a table saw, but I do have a cool Wenzloff & Sons 16” tenon rip saw! My tenons didn’t turn out too bad – the saw cuts very well. But I’ll admit it, after the first tenon I was wishing for a nice table saw with a dado set like Christopher Schwarz used. Cutting these out took some time and I’m glad it’s over with.
My panel is full, so I have to put in a subpanel to get any room for shop circuits. I picked up a 100A 2 pole for the main panel to feed a 100A Square-D main lug panel with 6 positions (12 circuits). This is where all those years working with dad as an electrician really pay off. I figure I’ll need: 1 – 220v 20A circuit to cover my saw and any reasonable upgrades.1 – 220v 20A circuit for future dust collection (starting off with Shopvac)2 or 3 120v 20A circuit for g...
