Yesterday was the first day of fall for those of us living in the northern hemisphere. Those of you who read know that it is my favorite time of year. Living in the woods allows me to witness all the beautiful colors first hand right outside my window. There are many hardwood trees in my area, and at this time of year, they offer a variety of colors ranging from gold to orange to crimson. It is truly beautiful. I went into town yesterday to do some errands and I couldn’t believe ...
Whew! I need to replace the blades on the jointer and the table saw needs to be tuned.And I still have tons of dull tools – planes and chisels. But didn’t get to any of that! I took today off and spent a good part of the day in and out of the shop. But before that . . . Cleaned the bathroom. Dust mopped the tile floor. Cleaned up the yard after Charlie (our dog). Mowed the grass. Swept the drive. Went and got some charcoal and dusted off the grill – company is comi...
In my last blog, I mentioned I should write a whole blog about my wife. I know I’m not alone on this one, but I’m damn lucky to have her. You see, my wife and I have an unusual history together. We first encountered each other when she was just 6, and I just a lad of 13. I was a Boy Scout, and our troop was camping on a private farm. One of the assistant Scoutmasters knew the owner and had arranged the whole trip. It was a fairly fun trip, with the exception of me almost d...
Some prick broke the planer and the new planer so I have to project to work on. All my pieces are cut but need planed down. But my jointed box is all most finished. Just needs a lid
I am finally completely done with all the cabinets for this house. Everything is installed, hardware is one, and everything is clean. The photographer (www.coastline-studios.com) took pictures yesterday, so hopefully I will have some to post on here in the next few days. I’m very excited to show this project off! I learned SO much on this job. Many things I will be doing differently. I feel like I just finished a class harder than any I ever took in college! Some of you probabl...
Well it’s been just over 60 days since I bought the apple. I can say that the experience has been a good one. So is the Apple better than the Windows machine? Fact is that I still have the Dell M90 sitting here and have used it as well as the Apple. Each has a place. Like comparing your table saw and your miter saw. Each has features that may be useful at one time or another. The Apple software is mostly compatible with the Windows software. Only problem I found is that Power Po...
Hello All, The hangover has subsided and I was able to write ‘The Threads of Time pt. 2’. http://su.pr/24ld3b Brian
Hi, I develop this Parametric door model is available to download at Sketch up warehouse model name is Dynamic door-2 make sure you explode after download, note: Door arch designed for most usual door size, stretching the door unusual size may cause some deformation, but so far its good enough, some little crack on raise panel but its hard to see.Let me know if you have any problem.
I have been VERY busy since my retirement with adirondack chairs, rustic coolers and pet beds-all made from cypress and stained and sealed with General Finishes products. I had all my Christmas orders delivered on time-if you call Christmas Eve-on time :). A couple days later I decided to go on all the Facebook sale sites in the area-there are about 25 and place an ad for end of the year orders. It started-’Four days left before Jan 1 to lock in 2013 pricing.’ Then I added ...
It’s been decent weather over the last two days (No rain, not freezing cold) SO, time to get some stuff done! I Finally decided to try and build a tablesaw sled, mostly because I think it would make life easier. But what kind? A panel sled, a cutoff sled or a Miter sled. I don’t have time, materials, money or space for all three and, as nice as it is, I think the SuperSled is beyond my current skills. Then I got an idea: Combine them! And, almost as soon as I had that idea, I go...
