Where to begin? This time around I thought I’d start at the end then show how I got there. Kind of like one of my favorite books once said, you start by knowing you’re already there. Well enough of philosophy. So often I see bed designs but there are no photos of the connector system of the side rails to the head and foot board. To me this is the most interesting part. Most of the time people use the standard bed brackets as I did on my first bed. This time around I wanted ...

Interesting you would ask such a random question! I suppose there could be several answers to this question though… but here’s mine. if you arrange them just so, they will look a little like this: This project has pretty much consumed me for the majority of this year. I’m not complaining though. I’ve learned a ton about myself while putting these bottle stoppers together. I’m currnently in the process of ensuring that the next time I post 2299 segments a...
It’s been at least a day since I started a new project/blog. My buddy Eric always says that projects are meant to be started, not necessarily finished. We go wine tasting in this rather industrial winery in Alameda, CA (we’re actually members). In their wine tasting loft is a very cute wine rack made out of wine staves. I’m at least as interested in their rack as their wine (far be it from me to pass up a nice rack). While waiting for other stuff to dry (that always...
Last Friday we had a customer appreciation event at my tool store here in Lubbock. We asked some of our regular customers to bring some projects to share with everyone. Of course, we then bribed people to come with the promise of food. (Works everytime) We tried to offer some good ideas for gifts for the holidays. Wish all you Lumberjocks could have been here.—-Yeah really—wouldn’t that have been grand for business. Imagine over 13,000 warm bodies buying tools in one day. Wo...
I have two of these that worked fine until the fixed end snapped off. being a cheapskate i kept them around figuring they might be good for something. cleaning up yesterday i looked at them and an idea struck me: why not use them as holdfasts? here it is: what remains should be plenty strong since it’s better reinforced and doesnt have as much torque applied to it. the dud end stays in place and is held beneath the bench through 3/4” dog holes. the only other modification (...
What a wonderful time and a great bunch of people. I felt like I’d known them all my life. It was funny, my wife was telling me, on the way home, the women had been talking, that all the husbands were not the kind of men to go to gatherings like this, but we were all relaxed and acted like we had known each other our whole lives. On a personal note I want to thank Rick for prodding me into doing this and getting the ball rolling. We had a great time and the trip to the mill was an extra...
<div> Click to play </div> Hello everyone, Been awhile. Here is a Small Audio Podcast about the Tater bin I’m going to be building for a Friend of mine. He is wanting a Tater bin Made from Pine and Stained with Cherry. He’s buying the Materials and hardware required ...
Hello Jocks… Just wanted all of you to know that Grant turned 18 yesterday!!! AN amazing feat if you have followed his health over the last few years…especially the last year. It was just a month ago that he was released from Children’s Hospital near Milwaukee after a ONE YEAR STAY… If you are new to this blog look back to see what this series is all about…many jocks contributed to a lure drive to help boost Grant’s spirits last spring when things...
Well I finally am getting around to putting up my first project in progress. I hope I put it in the right place as per forum guidelines. Basically it is a dog bowl food and water stand for large dogs. The bowls are roughly 8.5” in diameter and are stainless steel. My mother owns and shows English Mastiffs and asked me to make a feeder holder for an online auction with the proceeds to benefit a rescue organization. We were trying to do it on the less expensive side so we are using...
