Lego Table #6: Oh Yeah, I Was Building a Lego Table

01-27-2009 11:43 AM by Eric | 4 comments »

My wife sent me into the shop yesterday, saying, “It’s been forever since your last post, you need some shop time!” Yes, ma’am. My shop was still a mess, because the last time I had shop time I expected to get right back to it the next day…or the next week…and you know how it goes. So it took me a little bit to get my bearings and find the motivation to pick up the tools and pick up where I left off. The tricky thing with what I did yesterday was dril...

Hide Glue #1: Make Your Own (Non-Metallic) Hide Glue Brush!

01-27-2009 08:28 AM by David | 6 comments »

I have been gearing up for a particular project. In preparation I have been doing a bit of research on using hide glue. For the purist, it is best to use a glue brush without a metal ferrule. The reasoning behind this is the metal ferrule can potentially cause a black stain. There are brushes available for hide glue but there are rather expensive. For the time being, I am spending shop funds on materials and tools. The focus of this blog is to show an inexpensive alternative to an expensiv...

My Corner of the World #1: The beginning

01-27-2009 05:57 AM by sry | 11 comments »

My wife and I bought our house on the east side of Cleveland in spring 2007, and this past fall I was granted the rights to a small corner of the basement to use as a shop. I’ve been slowly transforming it into a more respectable work area. I’m going to try to keep track of what I’m doing/have done, in hopes that others can either benefit or steer me off the wrong path if I start to stray. DISCLAIMER: This is lagging behind real time by a few months, but I should be cau...

Workshop Ramblings #1: What Happened to the Warm Weather?

01-27-2009 02:49 AM by brianinpa | 11 comments »

The past few years Mother Nature has spoiled me rotten. Winters here in Pennsylvania have been mild with warmer than normal temperatures and little or no snow to speak of. I was always able to keep my garage heated with nothing only a small kerosene heater, but not this winter. I would use this time of year to do most of my wood working because when it is warm and there isn’t ice on the water, I’d rather be fishing. When it is hot, my MS won’t allow me to stay in the heat for very...

<sigh> Looks like I’m bearing bad news today… here’s the scoop: No pen trade box has make it to CanadianWoodChuck.35 days ago NedB said he’d ship the box out the next day.NedB hasn’t been on LJ in 27 days.I’ve emailed, PM’d and left a voicemail for NedB with no response.
