mini roubo #5: lots of yak shaving this past week.

03-26-2012 06:26 PM by kaaahl | 1 comment »

I’m sure this has happened to other people—you start out trying to do one thing and end up doing all sorts of others. That’s the definition of yak shaving—one thing leads to another and before you know it you end up needing to shave a yak when all you wanted to do was (insert activity). I have the bench top to the basic shape I want, including dado-ing out some chisel and saw holders. I started to visualize the base of the bench—I like to get exact meas...

take the old records off the shelf .....

05-22-2012 05:41 PM by oldretiredjim | 13 comments »

If you were born after 1975 this is probably of no interest. After more than 15 years I finally got my record collection back. Negotiated space with the boss and set about moving back into the late 70’s. I got speakers and an amp from that time frame and I still had a turntable from the late 70’s. In my opinion the pinnacle of audio equipment manufacture. So I started putting the system together. Speaker stands were easy. A couple pieces of 1 X 4 oak with ¼” hobby wood. The trick is...

Misc. Shop Stuff #8: Common Chest Handles

07-10-2012 03:29 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 26 comments »

Working on a chest refurb, and pretty much the fanciest thing remaining on the old thing were the side handles. I’d not seen anything like them before, but now a second pair appeared on a trunk in a nearby antique shop. Wierd. No, I didn’t buy the chest. Nice, but not $465-nice…

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #768: The Adventure Begins

07-24-2012 11:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

As wonderful as getting away was, it is always a great thing to be home again. You would think that being gone only three nights wouldn’t be long enough to be on a vacation, but there came a moment approximately 6pm on Sunday night when Keith and I were going to dinner where we both just wanted to be home. The thought having to stay in a hotel room for even one more night was no longer appealing to us and we decided to take however long it took to drive home and be in our own bed for ...
