20 Steps to a Checker Board... a beginners guide

10-17-2009 04:57 AM by Demowen | 7 comments »

I am currently finishing an education class so that I can teach Technology Education (shop class). My last assignment was to create a project that checks for the understanding of the previous lessons. I chose to do my lessons on shop tool safety and usage so it only fits to do a project to show off those new safety skills. I know you all are experts here ;) so I thought you might enjoy picking this apart! I created a simple project that uses the majority of common shop power tools. Her...

My weekend project

10-17-2009 03:13 AM by doorslammer | 7 comments »

This is my chosen project for this weekend. It’s an antique dresser my grandfather bought for my sister when she was born. It’s been sitting in my basement for the last couple of years and I keep looking at it thinking I should do something with it. My plan is to do a “soft” restoration. Basically I plan on giving it a good sanding, re-staining, and finishing. The major challenge is the top. I think there was a leaky aquarium on it at some point which split the t...

My Tools #5: Hugemongous Flea Market. One Purchase.

10-17-2009 01:33 AM by Eric | 4 comments »

I mentioned on my blog that I planned on going to the world's largest flea market in Canton, Texas. Well, I went a couple weeks ago, and was both overwhelmed and underwhelmed. The size of the flea market was staggering. But what was more surprising was the ridonculous amount of garbage that people were selling. From the standpoint of tools, I found that 80% of the tools were covered in rust, 10% were too ordinary to even bother looking at, 5% were grossly overpriced and 5% were worth consi...

Getting started

10-16-2009 08:47 PM by Tim Dahn | 5 comments »

I have been searching around the internet for a wall clock that I like, I have been able to find clocks that have some design features I like but not one that reached out and grabbed me. This one from Klockit came the closest, I don’t care for the choice of wood or the finish but I can change these things. There aren’t any plans as the clock is only available in kit form. The Klockit website shows a finished Size: 13 1/4”H x 13 1/2”W x 5 1/2”D, I’m thinking these dime...

Tablesaw Workstation #5: Some progress on the drawers and tops

10-16-2009 07:52 PM by JohninSD | 2 comments »

Made a little more progress – building the drawers, squaring up the tops. This workstation is already a pleasure to use, as the saw is much more stable and at a much more convenient height. It is also a breeze to move around on the casters. Although it was on casters before, it was so off balance that moving it was almost as difficult as moving it without casters. I squared up the top blanks using a Skilsaw and the second straightedge guide I’d made. I left out the screws on the g...

Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #22: Unisaw Update

10-16-2009 06:52 PM by Bothus | 4 comments »

Well it says that it’s been 8 days since my last Unisaw post but that can’t be right because it seems like for-friggin’-ever! Nothing I gotta focus, my brain, not the camera. I finally ordered the touch up paint for my Unisaw. Hopefully it will be here next week. Hopefully it will be the correct color. If not, I guess I will have to have it mixed and buy a sprayer. Side note: I was adding tags to this post and under “Skill” I couldn’t find a tag...

Site Updates

10-16-2009 06:02 PM by Martin Sojka | 33 comments »

Long time, no post… anyways I’d like to keep you updated about the latest updates on the site. Support and maintenance is taking more and more time because your activity grows leaps and bounds so these upgrades are not huge nor revolutionary. Anyways I’m sure that you’ll find them interesting because most of them were requested multiple times in the past. So here they are: New Events Calendar features a monthly view of all important LJ picnics and meetings. These ...
