Various Projects #4: Mom's Bookcase Part 1: Planning

12-09-2008 12:27 PM by Tomcat1066 | 3 comments »

Recently, my mother almost broke her foot while trying to put together one of those cheap partical board bookcases that Big Lots sells. She called me after the drop (she dropped it on her foot somehow) and I finished the job up. However, she still has one that hasn’t been put together and she’s in dire need of a bookcase. So…I’m going to build one. The problem is, I’m having trouble finding plans for one. Here’s what I’m thinking, and I figured...

Cold Winter Days #1: I Think Punxsutawney Phil is a Genious!

03-01-2009 06:12 PM by mot | 18 comments »

My family awoke, early last week, to -30C with a -40C windchill. I was choked. Somebody told me that The groundhog, aka Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators, didn’t see his shadow. I thought, “This groundhog is nuts!” We should be prepping the boat and getting ready for a great spring. But noooo, now our backyard rink is covered with drifting snow, and the garage doors are frozen to the ground. I quickly headed over to Phil's Offici...

Wood IDs #4: mystery ornamental branch identified

03-18-2009 04:12 AM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

After some online snooping, it looks like the branch I found the other day is of the Juglandaceae Family, which is to say it’s a walnut. Here’s some evidence… The chambers in the middle, seen here in my sample comprise what is known as a “chambered pith” (a pith being the center of a tree/branch/twig). Here's how it happens (in elaborate, if brief science talk). When it comes to chambered piths, it seems the only two choices spoken of online are black walnut (...

New Bedroom #2: How long do I have?

04-04-2009 10:29 AM by Dave Durham | 8 comments »

The leisurely 4 to 6 week project just became a 2 to 3 week project! The mattress and box spring arrived 4 weeks EARLY. They now sit in the middle of my living room taking up prime real estate: This has given me renewed vigor to work nonstop to finish the project. I started the week working on all the mortises. This was my first time using my Delta mortising machine. It’s pretty cool. Worked like a charm. I bought it a while ago and hadn’t used it on a project until now. ...

random #16: What LA does with its wood (and lawn trimmings)

05-10-2009 10:24 AM by Gary Fixler | 5 comments »

I’ve been trying to figure this out for a bit, and last weekend I cracked the case. Where do the logs and trees the tree trimmers cut down, and the stuff in the green waste recycling bins go? I tooled around Google Maps, searching for dumps and landfills, and found things like this that just didn’t seem to fit the bill. Finally I found this PDF file. It includes 20 pages, most with photos of everything that goes on, with figures on how much of each type of green waste is hauled in...
