Odds 'N' Ends #5: Clean Tools are Happy Tools

01-26-2016 08:29 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

It is a good idea to clean your blades every once in a while. I try to do it every 6 months or so, unless it needs to happen sooner. We had a rare winter rainstorm and it blew open my workshop doors, drenching everything, so I also cleaned the rust off of my cast iron tabletops. Enjoy! Clean Your Tools!

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #60: The Past Four Months

01-29-2016 06:55 PM by Paul Bucalo | 5 comments »

Last autumn we decided to remodel the kitchen. One failed major appliance started the notion. It was a cascading effect and the main reason behind all the extra work and time consumed. We won’t do that again. At any rate, I have been busy acquiring new tools and accessories, most of them coming to me because of an unexpected windfall around the holidays. I’m hoping to express this in a way that doesn’t come across as gloating, bragging or ego-tripping. Right now, I can’...

02-01-2016 03:47 AM by shipwright | 22 comments »

Winter is not the best time to be repairing a shipwrecked sailboat in the Pacific Northwest but my sailing buddy and fellow boatbuilder Michael has been plugging away whenever the weather and his other commitments would allow.When I last checked in we had got the big hull damage closed up and there were just a few small holes left. September October January I am pleased to report that she is now all sealed up and pretty much ready for paint both inside and out. The paint, ...

Shop Remodel #41: I Got Chopped

02-03-2016 01:11 AM by bearkatwood | 9 comments »

For those of you who have never used a leg vise, they are amazingly useful animals to have in the shop. To those of you who have one, “way to go” ;)To those of you who have one, and it happens to have benchcrafted hardware, let me commiserate with you just a bit. They are not really a difficult thing to put in, though I am a bit mechanically disinclined. They seem to be more on the tedious end of things and very persnickety. Kind of like putting a leash on a bumble-bee; be accurat...

Spray Guns

12-19-2009 01:20 AM by tazz | 3 comments »

Hi everyone, well, this is my first blog, at least I think it’s a blog. I have been making toy boxes for about the last month and Believe it or not, I can’t keep up with the demand. I have made 5 toy boxes and have 3 more to do before Xmas. And my next customer wants it painted. I don’t want to buy 4 or 5 cans of spray paint, which brings me to my Question. I am looking for a spray gun to buy but don’t know much about spray guns. Of course I want it to do everything, Paint, Stain, and ...

Building the Spine Desk #2: Fail, Save, and Failed Save!

02-05-2016 08:48 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

[Above] I decided I should make the brackets next since they need to hold the tables to the spine (Confused yet?) So I taped the two sides together and cut them on the band saw. If you saw my recent tip you’ll know why they ended up a little more free-form than I planned. [Below] Then I sanded them to uniformity on the drill press. There are two sets, one longer than the other. [Below] After breaking the bracket sets apart, I cut a dado in them to add some strength. First I ...

Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #2: New Year: Day 1, the adventure begins, anew................

01-01-2010 08:38 PM by Jim Bertelson | 10 comments »

I made a comment on Neil’s (NBeener) blog entry, Neils blog entry re New Years and after looking at it, decided it probably would make a good entry in my Comments of the Day blog topic. So apologies to Neil, I copied my own comment, with minor changes, from his blog to my blog…................I guess since I am giving attribution, it can’t be plagiarism, I am in a pretty good position to understand the author won’t mind…........(-: .......the comment: N...

Toy costruction #17: Well Drilling Rig 1

02-08-2016 09:45 PM by htl | 7 comments »

Been really cold out in the shop as some of you may have noticed so just a hit and miss with building the well drilling rig. I really wasn’t planning on building it but needed a drill chuck for my new to me Shop Smith and found one over at Grizzly and while I was over there found the well rig and the the Belly Dump Trailer plans with a deep discount so got both of them and the chuck was paying the shipping so It don’t get much cheaper than free shipping on both plans. lol So no...
