Another update. Pressure is holding fast. My brain is probably going OCD on this whole thing as I am wondering if I should upgrade the connection between the filtration rig and the hose reel with something like Rapidair, copper, or even black iron. I have my updated post, and even set up a poll on my blogger page if you are interested… http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com/2014/06/follow-up-update-dealing-with-pressure.html
We all have that one project we’re loath to start (in some cases it may be more like 100 projects), due to the degree of perceived difficulty inherent to the restore. In my recent case it was a small Disston Saw. Not sure of the model, but I picked it up at a flea market for 15 bucks a few years ago… it was straight but snagle toothed and filed 7-8 point cross-cut. Far too coarse for steel that thin. I had thought to make it a 11 or 12 ppi rip saw for large pine dovetails. ...
My Client wanted a unique way to propose to his girlfriend. To present the ring I create a custom made engagement ring box that required specific detailing and engraving with words of meaning from their relationship and, with four operational locks. Please visit my blog to see how I built this custom engagement ring box.
Decided on a smaller version of the flag. The original plan would end up too large. Made a frame out of pine. Painted the frame and the backer board black. Glued the ping pong balls to the board with silicone. BJ
Today I started working on the legs for the table. The picture above will give you an idea of what they will look like. The photos below are two views of the glue up. They are not glued to the table, but will eventually be bolted to the cleats. In these photos I’m using the cleats and the 2×4s sticking out the ends as spacers. I put a bit of duct tape on them to allow a little play. We’re getting there.
This Bobcat driver must have practised and practised. I bet there a few OH&S issues with this one..https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10202588186977854&fref=nf .Thanks Andy for this one.
The christmas throne is nearly finished I had to use my kitchen to prime and paint it because it is in the low 30s today. As an aside sanding when it is this cold is not fun.
It is here! Still my fevered heart- I have my book back in print. I like this cover even more than the original. I always thought that one looked too stuffy. This is better. Anyhow, I have updated my web site, woodworks-by-donna.com, if anyone wants a copy, it is easy to order there. Happy Donna.
I decided that I would mend my errant dados instead of replacing the leg, as it would be trying to repeat the setups exactly and match the other legs. Here’s pic of one repair…. And here’re the legs assembled.
It is raining on this Christmas Eve morning in Nova Scotia. I understand in Hawaii, it is snowing. Our ever changing world is once again throwing us a curve ball. It seems that just when we (meaning mankind) think we are smart enough to figure things out, nature dishes out something that once again throws us for a loop and knocks us off the pedestals we seem to enjoy placing ourselves upon. Such is the way of the world. I really don't mind not 'knowing' everything.Don't g...
