Phildo92027 stopped by this afternoon with an envelope. Inside was a much-appreciated gift that he had collected from the Cabinet & Furniture Technology Department students and faculty at Palomar College. Thank you very much. I am blessed to have such friends. Myron

New base for an old Porter Cable Circular Saw #1: Part 1 - ready for setup

10-03-2009 12:15 AM by ChunkyC | 0 comments »

Right hand sideLeft hand sideThe underside I not certain that this qualifies for a “project” but it’s been raining here for the last two days (on vacation not withstanding!) so I had to do something. The base started from a 12×12 blank of 1/8” hardboard and trimmed down to final size of 12×11-1/16. I made the base a lot wider on the left hand side so that I can use the saw with my good hand (left hand). The way is was before, the motor would hit the c...

Shop, tools, and talents at rest :(

10-03-2009 12:05 AM by Mark | 9 comments »

Hey there fellow LJs. So its farewell to the shop for a couple of months due to my surgery coming up this friday (oct 9) :( . I don’t know what I’m going to do the whole time. I’m too active and work habited to be layin in bed. Reason for surgery you ask? I was born epileptic with scar tissue on the left temple of my brain and since then its been getting worse. So now I head to the specialists in neurosurgery to get 16 cubic cm of my brain removed with high hopes of the seiz...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #7: Glue & Mold

10-02-2009 11:49 PM by CaptainSkully | 0 comments »

After finishing the parts with TransTint #6003 Reddish Brown and three coats of hand-rubbed poly, I was able to glue them up. It went reasonably well. This design doesn’t have a back panel, so it’s easy for it to get out of square. I glued one of the shelves in backwards, but learned my lesson on the second one. After cooking for a couple of hours, they went into the house to get out of the garage. It was now time for me to start working on the concrete tops. My brothe...

If one writes a song can one post it here? #1: Big Trouble Tomorrow Today

10-02-2009 08:51 PM by EzJack | 2 comments »

One day the people woke up,they new then the leaders obfuscated.Buried the danger so deep,that they could live in the “I didn’t know”. The tipping point now we have reached.Time table accelerating, leaders don’t speak.Permafrost melting, gasses released.Sold the future for luxury. They’re all covered in oil,covered in oil. If we started today would it be to late,better to fight the hard fight.Change a life style, change a horrible fate.Oh, we have to cea...

A senior moment … at 48? David McClure teaches science and coaches at Faubion Middle School in McKinney . He is also a Teacher Voices volunteer columnist. $5.37. That’s what the kid behind the counter at Taco Bueno said to me. I dug into my pocket and pulled out some lint and two dimes and something that used to be a Jolly Rancher. Having already handed the kid a five-spot, I started to head back out to the truck to grab some change when the kid with the Emo hairdo said t...

Wood Shows #7: Woodstock 2009

10-02-2009 07:52 PM by MsDebbieP | 11 comments »

October 2/09 Rick and I attended the “Woodstock Wood show” (Ontario Canada) this morning. It was a beautiful rainy day—perfect weather for trekking around in the mud and getting chilled through and through. But—it’s a wood show. You can’t go wrong. The crowds weren’t huge but then it is a Friday morning and it is raining. I spoke to some of the familiar faces: Jim McEntee from Steel City and Paul Fulcher, from Canadian Woodworking to ...

band saw box

10-02-2009 07:02 PM by cherrywood23 | 2 comments »

I have a box that has 3 drawers. It is made out of ceder. It is 5 1/2 by 3 in. the top in, has a slight “S” curve.I started by cuting the S curve then I cut off the back. I think the easiest way to do the drawers is by making a little cuts as possible. You need to use a small blade. glue all the parts and sand. that is as far as I got.

Murphy wall bed Build

10-02-2009 01:56 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Today I’ll be building a pair of murphy wall with a bookcase separating them. This will be the version I call the Hudson Bay. It is our simple Alpine with some molding added to the face. I use a stock molding found at a local hardwood supplier. They will be built unfinished in maple. The customer will finish it themselves. The bookcase I plan on making it a little shorter and a little shallower in depth then the two murphy beds. I am doing this so that the crown molding will w...
