I was never under any delusion that having my own woodworking business would be all fun, just making stuff from wood. All in all, it’s been about 50% of it at best so far. That’s another discussion though, esp. since I am still fully adjusting. So I finally had a significant machine failure. I was feeding a piece of maple through the planer and it slowed part way through, like it was turned off mid-feed, except that it wasn’t consistent. There was nothing unusual about th...
Hello All, Well after 9 hours I broke the tension lever, so I have not gotten my bandsaw set up. http://extremelyaverage.com/2010/07/nightmare/ Brian
Mom visited a couple of weeks back for 10 days. She tends to come out once per year in the summer to see me, her only son. She helped me replace some broken things in my continuing “everything’s breaking” period (broke a bit last week on the mill – pricey, too – my computer a week or two before that, and my TV shortly before that, sigh…). Then over dinner for her birthday somewhere nice we talked about woodworking, and my idea for making some things like cu...
I recieved a present from a friend, he picked this up at a yard sale and thought of me. Although I was very grateful he thought of me when he saw it, being a wood worker and all. He said he wasnt sure if it could be of any use to me and got it for a buck. Pete your are truely a great guy.My question is what could I use this for and how safe does it look to you?I thought I would post this and ask if any of you have seen it before or have used one in your past and how it worked out for you?Plea...
This woodworking tutorial features the mitre joint. If you’ve done carpentry or woodworking there probably was a time or two that the mitre joint was a challenge. This video shows how the mitre joint can be cut and fit with great accuracy, done safely, and with ease by using a mitre sled on the tablesaw. What if you could take your wood projects to another level? Now you can. You can feel comfortable cutting one mitre or hundreds of mitre joints as the mitre sled method ensures ac...
This email was sent to me today and it is soooo true !!! SHERIFF JOE IS AT IT AGAIN! Oh, there’s MUCH more to know about Sheriff Joe! Maricopa County was spending approx. $18 million dollars a year on stray animals, like cats and dogs. Sheriff Joe offered to take the department over, and the County Supervisors said okay. The animal shelters are now all staffed and operated by prisoners. They feed and care for the strays. Every animal in his care is taken out and walked twice d...
Is anyone out there interested in assisting in building shadow boxes & cutting boards(or anything else) that will be sold for charity at the Our Forgotten Warriors concert in September? This is just something I have come up with over the past few days so I don’t have much of anything going yet. This is mainly to see if there is enough interest to make it viable. Anyone is welcome to assist, we can work out the logistics as we go. I have become very involved with an incredible org...
The tutorial has been read 84,000 times. I am reworking and rethinking the tutorial. Stay tuned. Andy

If you stop by my site feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think about it. You all have a great day Joey ...
This was a fun part of the project.. gluing the skeleton together. I think you all can appreciate this – it has to be glued entirely together, in structure, while the glue is still wet. If I did the left and right walls and had them out of square, the front might not fit. I actually kind of hate this setup – I’ve done other houses where you can slowly build your way up. Also, this mdf is not the sturdiest stuff in the world… I thought about busting out my bessie...
