The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #4: It has been a long time.....climate inside the can

10-29-2009 07:38 PM by cmckerliesr | 6 comments »

Well it has been way to long since I last wrote or posted anything on my blog and I apologize for that. The main reason for the long period between blog posts is that as some of you know, I was out of work for over a year. I had to make the tough decision to severely limit my woodworking since I could not afford the power bill. In case you did not know, woodworking is not my occupation. Writing crap that no one reads is. Yes, the next time you actually take the time to read the directions tha...

I Rise to the Challenge ... sort of

04-11-2008 03:48 PM by Hibernicvs | 4 comments »

Okay, here’s my best shot. I tried to use “sketch up,” but I figured that, combined with tax time (I’m a CPA) the frustration was too much. I hand-drew my idea from a sketch I made during singing practice a few weeks ago, while listening to the Basses and Baritones (or, if you want an inside joke, the Third and Fourth Tenors) screw up their parts while the director tore out what little hair he has left. Of course, I did this while watching some weird Sherlock Holmes...

Tooling up with estate sales-How to equip your hand-tool shop for pennies on the dollar #5: Last bonus tip

04-20-2015 07:25 PM by Brad | 0 comments »

In this last installment, I talk about other treasures to enrich your life. Bonus Tip #11: Look for other stuff too.Once you’ve made two rounds in the tool-rich areas (garage, basement, outside shed), take a moment to just look around. Seek out items congruent with your hobbies and interests. Are you a gamer? Collector of tobacco tins? Want to spruce up your bar area with vintage liquor/beer signs, mugs and glasses? Estate sales are an economical way to do just that. For instance, I enj...

Novice Rambling Quickie #1: Handplaning boards, Knot Repair & workbench stability

05-06-2010 06:30 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 0 comments »

Yesterday, I took my lunch break and scooted off to the garage for a little therapy away from spreadsheets and financial forecasts. There’s a cherry board that I did a little knot repair to for practise. The board has some dry rot along one edge and I figured if I could fill the knot as per the technique in TWW episode 113, I could cut away the rot and salvage at least part of the board … —Editors Note—I’m actually starting up my own blog page similar to Ec...

Starting up a workshop the second time around. #2: Workbench plan

06-16-2010 10:07 PM by David Kirtley | 3 comments »

While I am waiting for my vise to get actual measurements, I have been working on what I want for my bench this time. It is going to be a lot smaller than my last one. It is also going to be made from dimensional lumber and sheet goods. A solid hardwood bench is pretty but it is so impractical. It usurps a lot of expensive lumber and you have to spend so much time preparing stock. Straight out of the big box store for this one. I am going with only once vise. I have ordered a knock-off pat...
