Hello All, The computer seems to be almost fixed….I hope. I am still a few days away from going home and having access to my shop, so my blog continues to be non-woodworking drivel. But some of you like my ramblings, so I thought I would let you know anyway. :-) I did ask a few questions, which I would love some help with. http://bit.ly/c7Xx3j Brian
Well, here is what I CAN show you, notice the camera tries not to capture anything below bench top level… The G0572 hung on the ceiling, and operational in its full, uh, glory? You can also see in the first photo that I have all the shop lights finally hung. The one shop light in the middle that is powered off is actually going to be removed in favor of mounting that over the wall workbench from a hutch. But that is another project, and hasn’t been important to me…...
Am I the only one who has: . Had to start over. And it was one of the first steps. It’s a good thing I don’t believe in omens. . Taken the dust collector apart to retrieve a piece that came off of the dremel. The first time to get the drum that holds the sanding sleeve onto the the bit. The screw came loose, that bounced off of my foot. The second time to get the ring, the one by the collet. Now it’s taped on. Luckily I changed bags Tuesday, not much in there....
Now that Martin has made blog posting easier…. Here is the next installment in my craft blog. I have done Three more events in the last two months and am currently getting ready for a solid Christmas show run. The first week in September was at Bethel Woods it was a Wine and Cheese festival. Bethel Woods is on the former site of Woodstock. The venue was Beautiful and the turn out was pretty good. I think like 4500 people. My wife Brandy did a excellent job selling Wine tilts, t...
Here’s an extention I added to my tablesaw for light weight use. Works very well for moldings etc when I don’t need to add a large outfeed.The pics are pretty much self explanatory.
Oct. 7/10 Having overcome the battle with “fear at starting something new” I have now moved onto a new personal challenge. This afternoon my mind decided that it didn’t want to “see” in 3-d contoured vision and translate that image onto a smaller less contoured shape. Here is where I really have to battle with the perfectionism or “good enough” challenge. I’ve been doing a lot of deep breathing this afternoon, as a strategy to stop myse...
That’s always the advice if—as happens SO often—you’re confronted by a big gang of thugs. And I didn’t. Much of the work on these projects is thoroughly enjoying and relaxing—if even a bit nerve-wracking, because we want to do it right ! But … for me … I can usually tell, as I review plans, which parts of the project are going to be—by a factor of 100x—hardest for me. In the case of THIS project, it’s the false teno...
Well, this weekend is when I have to ‘carve’ the turkey for Canadian Thanksgiving, but I didn’t want to abandon you with nothing to work on.So for this blog and periodically, I will be posting pictures and tips of how to trim your shoe a little finer prior to carving our laces. I will also be adding some details on my shoe.My rule of thumb is never undercut anything until your carving is to it’s proper proportions and the laces need some undercutting. I’m really ...
I’ve decided to resolve the major annoyance related to posting high quality blog entries on LumberJocks. If you want to add some nice photos to your posts and don’t like spending time with 3rd party photo sharing sites like Photobucket this new feature is just for you. After taking an estimated storage and bandwidth into account and doing some math, I came to a conclusion that it’s finally the right time to create a new bucket at the Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) for...
