So here is the design for the cabinet… The two top drawers are designed to hold a ton of bits, far more than I’ll ever need. Here is a pic of the construction without the drawer fronts and cabinet door. These two pics show off some of the dimensions.
Wow!! I haven’t even set up my workshop, and my neighbor gave me a beatiful piece of redwood. This thing is over 30 yrs old. Just from my expressing interest in woodworking, he gave it too me. The piece, at it furthest dimensions, is 20”x17”x2”. My neighbor will also let me use his tools to get the project underway. He is a hobbyist that has done several pieces with the redwood over the past 30 years. He has taken a long break from woodworking, and I am thinking he is ...
If you’ve read my workshop entry, you might just gather I am crunched on space even though I am in a 2 car garage, and you’d be right. And I am trying to squeeze as much usable shop into the space I have available. Unfortunately vertical space isn’t well utilized yet, so most horizontal spaces, like the current workbench, the various tool tables, the floor etc… get covered in stuff. As I was walking from the lathe, into the house the other day I noticed something ab...

So I got to looking, it wasn’t that the Frog Tape let the paint bleed, it appears frog tape took paint with it when my wife pulled it off of the wall. So I got the first coat applied, with an artists fine brush Tonight is going to be interesting, I have work I need to do remotely from home, start certain jobs on the computers, and let them run, I will likely be running back and forth between the computer and the dining room! Once that is done, and assuming work gets done at a r...
As Bill noticed I have upgraded our picture viewer. Problem with the prev and next buttons was that they were not always on the same place and you had to hover the image to see them. To enhance the usability I’ve moved these two buttons together with the close button to the new separate toolbar at the top of the page. Enjoy!
It appears that our beloved President Santos has given us duff information, a couple of months ago, we were warned to expect El Niño, nine months of dry arrid weather, the last week has seen the return of the rainy season, and that is not just the odd shower, so I think our second winter of the year has arrived, which is not what I need at the moment. Unless the weather breaks and we have a decent spell, I am going to have to put the kiosko roof replacement on hold, I haven’t got suf...
Well, yesterday I was thrown quite a curve ball. For some unknown reason, it seemed that my computer keyboard slowly met its demise. While that may not seem like such a big thing to many, for myself it was quite traumatic. Not having my usual way to communicate – especially first thing in the morning when I write my blog here and correspond with the many emails I receive from friends and customers – was somewhat of a crisis. It died a slow and painful death, as if it were fig...
So I ordered a new dust collector system from Festool. It is expensive as heck but Eagle America gives me a good deal on it plus free shipping. I have been ready all day to open the package and use it first thing today when I got home and what did I find? The dust collector is all banged up and the frame was broken from the rough handling. I couldn’t believe it. I look again at how it is packed and it is basically in a corrugate box but no styrofoam, or anything to help protect i...
