sawdust chronicles challenge #4: update, September 17

09-17-2010 06:48 PM by BigTiny | 2 comments »

Hi all. Well, I picked up a 5×5 sheet of 1/2” Baltic birch plywood yesterday for the substrates and to build a table saw cross cut sled, which I’ll need to complete the build. Also picked up a 12×72 inch sheet of maple veneer. There goes $75 of my budget, although about $25 of that will be charged to the sled project, so net is about $50 so far. Another $5 or so will end up in my veneer collection as I won’t need more than half of the sheet, even with using s...

Radial Arm Saw Refurb #1: Tool Gloat

09-17-2010 06:22 PM by HokieMojo | 21 comments »

Well, here is the other big tool purchase I made recently (spray can for scale). closer shot: This saw was posted on ebay, but there appeared to be some inaccurate information on it (model number never existed, blade size was incorrect, serial number was never produced, etc). I wasn’t able to get answers to my questions before bidding closed, so I passed on it. Apparently everyone else did too. I suspect it was a combination of a confusing description, making a big purchase w...

Men's Valet Golf Tournament Prizes #1: The Prototype

09-17-2010 02:21 PM by WoodSimplyMade | 1 comment »

I posted a few days ago the prototype design I came up with for a men’s valet station. These were to be prizes to be presented at an upcoming golf tournament in November. I asked you all for input and comments on the design and of course I can always count on you guys just for that. The feedback and suggestions were great and have allowed me to modify the design to make it even better. For those of you who have not seen my submission here is the prototype that I had you all comment o...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #106: Facing Challenges

09-17-2010 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

It is a cold, dark and rainy day so far today. I wonder if that is an indication of things to come? I have to go to the bank and the post office today and I really don’t look forward to getting wet. It is raining pretty hard and the wind is coming off the ocean so it seems pretty nasty out. Perhaps it will let up by the time the bank opens. I have a long laundry list of things to accomplish today. I don’t like this many loose ends and it is time to take a full day to clean...

Building My Work Shop #1: The Plan!

09-17-2010 07:52 AM by Crushgroovin | 4 comments »

The beautiful Seattle Gloom has returned early this year, so it is finally time to get my Work Shop(Garage) up and running. I am going to try and document this as I go. It will be good for me to see how far I end up from my “plan”. In my experience plans are like a guide that points me in a direction. This first Post is actually made up of some “After” shots. When I started it was a total disaster that I couldn’t safely walk across. These pictures are after sp...

Jointer Restoration #1: Tool Gloat

09-17-2010 05:27 AM by HokieMojo | 11 comments »

I got this tool at a GREAT price on craigslist about a year ago. I actually remember the day. I was listening to the Hokie game on the radio on the way back from my purchase and I literally RAN into the house to see my Hokies complete one of the greatest comeback drives I’ve witnessed in my 15 years of watching Hokie football. Tyrod Taylor had lofted an 80 yard pass to Danny Coale against Nebraska and was about to complete the comback with an amazing scramble and touchdown pass just ...

Hello All, Often I look at the clock and realize that it is 9:00 and I need to write my blog. This was the case tonight. I already had the photos, so I wrote my blog piece, added the photos and hit save on wordpress. It then disappeared! This is the angry and bitter 2nd attempt. Brian

Dust Collection #2: Finished Already

09-17-2010 04:56 AM by HokieMojo | 8 comments »

Sorry this component of my dust collection system didn’t get broken down into steps better, but I was juggling so many things at once (workshop and family related) that I couldn’t get good photos and keep up with the posts. Here is the dust collector that I built from a recycled AC blower unit and how I came up with the design. I had a perfect spot high on an empty wall. It would be out of the way, but central enough to get good air circulation. Here is my planned location. ...
