Extremely Average #231: Enlightenment

08-24-2010 03:18 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, I just thought I would let you know that tonight’s post is up. It isn’t about woodworking though. I haven’t done a piece about Social Media in a month or so, and a few of my regular readers requested one. So I discuss Digg and will be checking out that site, to see if it helps my blog. http://digg.com/d31aCvy Brian

Bedrails #1: Getting started.

08-24-2010 01:16 AM by AnnaEA | 6 comments »

The Bee’s bunk bed needs some bed rails. I spent a few hours staring at the bed and scribbling little sketches, then another hour or so wandering around the hardware store and lumber yard buying stuff I probably don’t need, and have spent another nice while this afternoon getting started making the rails. First up, assemble these parts into slots to to fit these rails I cut all the wood to measure yesterday, which involved lots of running up and down from the ...

Car-boot sale treasures #2: Yorkshire tool gloat

08-24-2010 12:03 AM by YorkshireStewart | 17 comments »

It’s not as if I don’t have planes, but confronted by these two (A Stanley #4 and a Record #5) yesterday at a local car boot sale (flea market?), what could I do but buy them? Especially when the vendor dropped the price before I’d even had chance to haggle. Five pounds for the two seemed more than reasonable. Seven dollars 75 cents is a rough conversion. The #5, especially, is somewhat knocked about, but think of the hours of pleasure I’ll get in resurrecting t...

White Pine Log Cabin

08-23-2010 11:44 PM by Mike Chapman | 23 comments »

On July 10, 2010 I began to build my log hunting cabin. It starts with harvesting blown down white pine. We had a horrendous wind storm two years ago that left millions of board feet of timber in ruins. We put some it to good use. Go to my website and navigate to “Work-In-Progress”. There you will see the White Pine hunter’s cabin being created from logs, to lumber, to rough cabin, and finally, to finished cabin. I’m building the log cabin right outside of my woo...

My Main Toobox - Built 14 Years Ago - and My Tools Inside

08-23-2010 10:17 PM by helluvawreck | 18 comments »

Yesterday, I took every tool that was in my main tool chest out of the box and cleaned and vacuumed out the box. While I was at it I laid my tools out on the work bench and cleaned and inspected them and took some of the bigger Stanley planes apart one at a time and cleaned all the parts. The iron in three of the planes needed sharpening so I did that before I reassembled them. I then put a few of the tools and put them in other drawers instead and put some other tools with these because this...

One Project Down, Another Ready To Go

08-23-2010 09:49 PM by Kerry Drake | 2 comments »

Finally finished the face frames on the built-in bookcases, and they are now done except for painting (and my lovely wife is going to take care of that). Here is the “finished” product that still needs some “finish”. Now on to new and (gasp) even bigger things. We are going to take a wall out of the Kitchen and open it up to the dining room, and where the wall was, we’re going to put in a new set of Cabinets with a built in breakfast bar. The run of...

Performax 16/32 Drum Sander

08-23-2010 09:45 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 9 comments »

Well, my show went very well this weekend so I am looking for a drum sand so I can improve the quality of my cutting boards and produce some end grain boards. I just found one on craigslist for $395 and now I need some advice. The manufacture date on the motor is ‘96 and the color of the unit is green. I am not sure when they switched to white. Other then listening/checking for bad bearings and looking at the overall condition, what else should I be looking at or for. This unit als...
