Migrating my Photos

1954 days ago by Jon3 | 0 comments »

I’m in the midst of migrating my hosting, and so in the next day or so, some of my inline offsite hosted photo links in blog posts may not work 100% of the time. Just be patient, and I’ll get back on my feet as soon as I can!

Hide Glue #3: A Hide Glue Repair

1954 days ago by David | 11 comments »

Additional Hide Glue Links Make Your Own Hide Glue Brush! A Hide Glue Primer Repairing an Old Drawer with Animal Hide Glue Last night I was startled awake from a woodworking daydream by a loud crashing sound from our home office. The side and bottom fell out of drawer of our antique oak desk when Beth was trying to get a box of staples from the rear of the long drawer. Sounds like a repair brewing! Well this desk is an older “antique” oak English library desk. Beth ...

Adventures in Trace Fork #3: What a difference a week makes

1954 days ago by Tony | 1 comment »

A week ago last Saturday, my son and I went hiking down in the canyon. It was quite windy and cold when we started, but by the time we’d hiked a couple of hours, we shed our jackets as the wind died and the sky cleared. My son helped me find some more branches for carving, and we found a small Hornbeam that had recently been taken out by a storm, and I cut a piece to take home for carving. This is my first experience working with Hornbeam, and peeling the bark reminded me of peeling a c...

This is just a comment I had on a conversation about "granite" machine tops!

1954 days ago by Joshua Howe | 3 comments »

I work in a granite shop doing counter tops for a living and also have a MFA from the University of Montevallo with a concentration in sculpture. So I have cut, ground, and sanded just about every stone you can think of. As far as Uranium I think you would be more likely to get lead poisoning from a pencil(FYI-pencils have graphite in them, so don’t worry!) But kidney stones maybe a problem if you are cutting marble on a regular(calcium) But if you are CUTTING man-made stone on a regular you ...

Garage Overhead Cabinets #6: Viola! Garage Cabinets.

1954 days ago by MyOldGarage | 9 comments »

(Triumphant sound of music in the background . . . . ) The garage cabinets are finally done. Last night we cut the 2×4 we used for the french cleat on the back of the cabinets and the rail on the wall. That was a kind of terrifying experience . . . getting that much board through the Shopsmith at a 30 degree angle. I had my feather board on and pushing sticks—all the safety measures I could think of. The operation made a ton of saw dust that blanketed us . . . because I ...

techniques #2: New way to clean my borer bug eaten Eucalyptus - wire wheel brush

Previously:Wood IDs #6: Found Eucalyptus tree in LA - part 1 of 3Wood IDs #7: Found Eucalyptus tree in LA - part 2 of 3Wood IDs #8: Found Eucalyptus tree in LA - part 3 of 3 It’s a bit labor intensive getting all the bark and Eucalyptus Longhorned Borer bug excretion cleaned off the Eucalyptus tree I cut up into logs from a nearby neighborhood. It dawned on me a couple weeks ago that I could use a wire wheel brush in my drill press. I’ve used the technique to brush up aluminum ...

Workshop Re-Do

1955 days ago by robbinscabin | 6 comments »

Hi all, I’ve been very quiet recently so I wanted to give a little update as to what I’ve been doing. As you all know, I make carved screen doors primarily. Because the doors measure 36×80 this does require a bit of shop space for negotiating the door. That shouldn’t be a problem considering my shop is my 28×40 basement but….If you’ve ever worked in the basement you know that it has a whole series of problems including no windows, shabby lighting ...
