Electricians Challenge

06-06-2010 07:25 AM by wichle | 8 comments »

Traveling last weekend in Milwaukee, celebrating the Memorial Day Holiday, we were headed to Elliotts Ace Hardware store to buy some harware that I couldn’t find in SE Michigan. Running up 108th Street we spotted what looked like an impending disaster. A low helecopter headed for a high tension line. On second look, an electrician suspended below the helicopter was working on one of the lines. I’ve run alot of wire, climbed towers, climbed poles but never did cable like ...

A Sliding Door #3: Mortising, part 1

11-02-2014 03:01 AM by Mark Kornell | 0 comments »

Spawn of Satan broke through the gates to hell last night. And this morning. Not too difficult, really, if some human forgets to close the gate all the way. The cat “screamed and leapt” at the dog, according to my daughter. Kind of like a Kzin, I thought. Needless to say, I sense there’s some urgency to get the door done. Here’s what the current “gate” looks like Not sure that the shoes are adding anything. The track will be fastened to the ...

Tool chest or blanket chest? #4: Glue-ups!

02-17-2014 02:07 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Getting things put together, Finally!! Sides have been “fixed”, front and back panels are done. Needed to drill some counter-bored pilot holes to assemble the sides to the front and back. Small forstner bit for a counter bore in the Drill press. Haul the slab of the front to the press, go to drill the first hole….table tilts! So, dig through the tool boxes, find the right sized wrench, and tilting table tilts no more. Got the front and backs drilled, time for som...

Little Help, Please?

10-03-2015 02:05 AM by Mark Wilson | 23 comments »

Here’s a case where I don’t know what to do with myself. I decided this afternoon that, rather than setting out to make something astounding, I’d just put a piece of wood on the lathe and make something. So, I grabbed a Hackberry turning blank, 4” X 4”, tried to figure out a way to turn it in the fashion of a tricorn, decided that wasn’t a good idea, and mounted it the normal way between centers.Hackberry is a funny wood. Those dark lines that make it so i...

New Workshop #4: Some fun progress

11-24-2013 02:20 AM by NinjaAssassin | 1 comment »

So, I had a birthday back in October and my wife surprised me with this… It’s a great gift and a really awesome surprise. In addition to that guy, I bought a 4-bulb fluorescent light fixture and a small infrared heater so that I can work in the shop after about 4pm and while it’s cold. The little white plastic jobby in the previous picture is the barely adequate infrared heater. It was $25 at Lowes and is supposed to be good for supplemental heating for u...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1627: On to the Weekend!

It is hard to believe that we have another weekend under our belts! But with the mornings getting cooler and the darkness lasting a little longer each day, it is hard to forget that the beautiful summer weather is giving way to autumn. Time surely passes quickly when we are busy! Yesterday I spent the day with Keith updating the site and getting out my bi-weekly newsletter. We changed all the sales on our Pattern Specials page and we added another new pattern that Keith created. This tim...

Workshop setup #3: The main event #1

01-08-2012 12:27 PM by FlashG | 3 comments »

Yesterday, I took delivery of almost every one of my Dad’s collection of tools. The garage looks extremely crowded but I’ve got rid of most of the boxes so there’s a bit of space now. This is the start of a very long road. The next step is to finish the preparation of the workshop but at least I’ve got the tools to do that now! Although of course even with almost every tool, drill bit, laser-level, long-nosed sander and clamp known to man, I still had to go and buy...
