A 24 Thou Repair

08-31-2014 11:04 PM by GarageWoodworks | 9 comments »

One of my dovetail joints didn’t come out exactly perfect. Two pins had a 24 thou (0.024″) gap behind them. I tried to keep my cool and made two slightly oversized wedges and feathered the end w/ sand paper. After gluing into place they are almost invisible.

Who Knew Cutting Circles was So Easy

10-25-2012 04:13 PM by BassHunter | 5 comments »

I am helping my 8th grade son build a wind turbine for his Science Fair Project. He is testing the impacts of different blade designs on energy production efficiency. As part of the project, we have to build a hub to attach the blades to the generator unit. So I thought about different ways to cut a circle – not sure yet how big we need, but probably a half foot to foot in diameter will be needed. The options were – router, drill press (most likely not enough capacity), tabl...

Renovation - Industrial Warehouse #1: The Proud Pauper's Way

02-02-2009 04:59 AM by Scott Parsons | 2 comments »

Well, it all started just a couple weeks before Christmas. I knew it was coming but didn’t appreciate the impact it would have. My girlfriend, Heather, and I decided that we wanted to live together but I didn’t want to leave my living space because it’s in the building I work in and I always wanted that warehouse living experience before I decided to truck it back out to the country. When I moved into this 500sq. foot shed-within-a-bigger-shed it was a nightmare. I kne...

One late Sunday Afternoon while visiting our son who lives in Hot Springs AR. My wife, and I took a jaunt down to the local shopping center. I dropped her off at a Book store, and promised I’d pick her up at 6:00. I went to the big Lowes, & I wandered around the store for awhile, and finally ended up in my favorite area, The Tools. I combed the aisles until I came upon a large tag. Dewalt Model DW 625, $125. the regular price had been $325. I was looking it over, & I noticed t...

Around The Shop.. #2: 1200sqft Barn Shop Setup ..part 1

09-09-2016 01:54 AM by Airframer | 11 comments »

Well.. It has been a while since my last blog post and wanted to catch everyone up on what’s going on around the shop. In February I purchased a house just outside of town on 1.17 acres of land. The house needed (still does) a lot of work but it came with a 1200sqft pole barn with a loft! The loft is about half the size of the down stairs so it has roughly 1800sqft of usable space in it. This is a serious upgrade from the 2 car garage I had in my last rental and heaps better ...

Dowelmax is a 5 star toolMy journey to building (making a joint that will last!) led me to the Festool Domino, but then I came across the joint of “dowels”. HmmmmI watched the videos on Very well presented by the owner and creator. Here is what sold me: Money back guarantee, the test results comparing dowels to tennon, biscuits … Ease of use: You will get a paper instruction booklet and video. It will explain/show to you many and I mean many types of situations of dowel...

This is nothing like WWMM specials but it is the best I could do on very short notice. Thanks to a residual bug from my daughter’s illness I, too, got sick which kept me out of the shop. Hope you all enjoy, be sure and subscribe if you haven’t and give me comments and feedback on my first special.

Kitchen cabinetry #4: Installing upper cabinetry

01-27-2014 05:55 AM by Jake | 6 comments »

Nothing much to say, finally managed to get the upper cabinetry up, from scratch to end product took me 1 week. Details cut: Painting and lacquering the parts: Drilling the pin holes for shelves: Cabinetry glued and screwed together (upside down): Since I did not know what was behind the sheetrock I was a bit worried because I did not know if I can put them up on the walls or not. So I had to check.. Good news was, I had a 1/2” piece of particle board put behind there ...
