The bird and all the trimmings are gone finally. Ready to get back to normalcy. Have been staying away from family and friends while i fight my yearly cold. sleep and drugs have catapulted me over the hump, I feel almost human this morning. I am having withdrawals from the lack of shop time, I have this uncontrollable urge to “piddle”.

Attention Pod Casters!!

1282 days ago by Old54Woodworks | 5 comments »

Hello LJ’s I have a question, and a few more, for the pod casters out there (I think it’s called pod casting). I am wondering how you do your shows? What equipment do you use? What computer programs do you use? What else can you tell me about pod casting? Where else can I get information on this? I’m asking because I am interested in doing this but I have now idea how. I have watched some of the videos and it doesn’t look all that difficult. When I was a leader i...

Hiss Drive Rover #2: Version 2.0

306 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

With the approach of Comet ISON and the Mars 2014 apparition getting under way and me out of commission for the past 2 months with a back injury, I have been chomping at the bit to (1) get observing and (2) get cracking on the hiss drive rover. It’s been a few months since the last entry (which I thought I had published already but…oops…it was still a draft until tonight) but all the real progress has taken place in the last three days or so. To start, I constructed so...

Pass It On #1: New Year's Resolution

2456 days ago by Russel | 10 comments »

There have been a few posts lately about Teaching/Inspiring young folks in woodworking. Over the years I’ve worked with church youth groups, assisted a junior high band teacher and coached volleyball. Each experience was more rewarding than work. As it turns out, I actually like working with kids. Now, I’m not the greatest woodworker, but I do know a thing or two; certainly enough to pique the interest of young folks. Shop class (or Industrial Arts) is pretty much a thing o...

Hooray for scrapers, even dull ones!

1611 days ago by ackychris | 3 comments »

Spray paint is my mortal enemy. Especially spray paint drips. I’ve been finishing an electric guitar for months now, because every time I spray a new coat on, I get drips. When I get drips, my SOP is to sand through to the primer in a fatal attempt to level them. Then I swear, a lot. But I just got a set of scrapers the other day, and even though I haven’t managed to sharpen them satisfactorily, I decided to break ‘em out. I’d put another coat on my guitar a few ...

The Sawcliffe Green man #11: The Sawcliffe Green man #11

118 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 3 comments »

started working on the acorns, but something feels off even though my calipers and measurements from the drawing tell me all is correct, and I have some room for error on the nuts. So, I worked around them and will come back to them in a few days with fresh eyes and see if I can find the solution. If anyone sees something I don’t, let me know!

How do you remove DAP acrylic caulking on a stained wood garage door without damaging the finish?

372 days ago by woodengaragedoorguy | 1 comment »

I have a few wooden garage doors where I outsourced the finishing. They applied 3 coats SIkkens stain and the doors looks great BUT, when they applied a bead of the DAP acrylic caulking “Alex Plus” along the sides of boards helping keep water out they smeared it in large areas where it shouldn’t be. Does anyone know a good way to remove this caulking from the newly stained wood door without compromising the finish when removing it?
