Ok so I just started getting these pallets from a furniture store for free, most are pine but there are a few every once in a while that are oak. I’m planning on using them for all sorts of things and would like some of your ideas as well. First on my plate is a second chicken coop. I thought I would make it entirely out of the pallets and as easy as possible. Heres what I’m thinking let me know your ideas. I’ll set 2 pallets on the ground with bricks as a foundatio...

Episode 76 Milescraft Sign Crafter from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I set up demo and review the milescraft sign crafter. The sign crafter includes everything you need to make a sign. I cut a Baltimore Ravens sign and it turned out looking pretty good. I am a New York Giants fan but I am making this sign for a friend. This week I started working on a sign for a local firehouse.
Yankee trouble (bits and pieces…)Or when you have to pay 45$ for to little, and are to stubborn to do so! Yes I had the choice to pay 45$ including shipping for Europe, for a bitholder to my Yankees, or buy a set of different bits from england for 28 Pound – this was the closest to madness since I own several other more modern screwdrivers, but…Yes I like old tools, and love to have a beautiful or special tool in my hands, and since I am the owner of tree Yankee screwdriv...

Hi everyone. Here is the method for making the Impossible II. Before we start I didn’t take any photos during the build for this one. I needed to concentrate full time on it and taking pics can be distracting. The CAD drawings provided here should do the job . I’ve seen Steve (spalm) use this sort of thing to great effect. I’m not giving exact sizes, you can scale things off of the pics. This will give you the angles too, mostly 60°. First the complete pattern You ...
Often requested and finally here! I’ve finally changed the Sketchup cutlist4.1 plugin to show the partslist by sub-assembly based on the nested components in your model. I’ve uploaded cutlist22.214.171.124pre You’re really going to want to delete the old version completely before installing this version because the structure of the plugin has changed completely.

It feels wonderful to see my business gaining some momentum again. Although I know it still has a way to go, it is a good feeling to see that I am gaining ground, even if it is just a little bit every day. it is a huge change from what I have experienced the past couple of years.
