2062 days ago by Karson | 17 comments »

Yesterday Dec 6, 2008 was our toy give away day for the Mason Dixon Woodworkers Club. These are the toys that we made in 2008. Approximately 1300 toys were made and given away. They were given to Charities in the area for them to give to their recipients. A local newspaper reporter Dan Shortridge and Photographer Gary Emeigh were present to record the day. I’ll post other pictures but here is a link to the Newspaper Article Click on the related articles to see the print article. ...

The Gazebo #3: The Transformation Continues

2063 days ago by MsDebbieP | 8 comments »

Dec. 7/08 Our gazebo continues to transform. Rick and I laugh when we sit inside our “cloth gazebo” that we purchased for a great price. What a deal we got. Yes, we used the cloth gazebo twice, before it’s twisted fate. The resurrection went from an added wooden floor, to a wooden frame, to wood/glass walls, and now to a wood roof. Our cheap gazebo has transformed in appearance as well as cost! Sheesh. Anyway, here is our latest version of our gazebo. (and yes, I know that only half ...

Various Projects #3: Stocking/Coat hanger Part 3: The Finished Product

2063 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 2 comments »

I normally don’t like posting another blog while I’ve got one on the front page, but since it’s been a few hours, I thought I would share the finished product. Yes…it’s all done! While it’s a simple project, it’s still mine and it’s finished. The hanger has been posted in my projects, but a more direct route is here. I see the flaws, but am still very proud of it. The chamfer was hand done. It was hand sanded as well, and hand painted to...

Ponderings #23: Table Saw Versus Bandsaw

2063 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 18 comments »

Decisions, decisions, decisions. Luckily, I was finally able to make mine. As many of you know, i’m extremely space limited. Any stationary power tools (a) can’t be stationary and (b) must fit within a 6’x6’ room that also contains a freezer and hot water heater. Granted, at some point I’d like to convert to a tankless hot water heater, but that’s a subject for another day. This space limitation is part of the reason I focused early on hand tools. Let...

Ode To Small Shops #2: A Shop With An Identity Crisis

2064 days ago by slooper | 3 comments »

Most shops fall into two categories: 1) you cram it in wherever it fits, be it a basement, a garage or the back of a truck or 2) You custom build it so that it is large enough for all the tools and storage you need. Mine is a hybrid: I built it, or rather had it built small enough to cram my whole shop into it. So why, when I had an opportunity to build, why did I build small. You might guess $, which is true, but only half the story. The other half is that it has to be small and portable. ...
