Workshop Ramblings #6: Ain't this fun?

07-03-2009 04:06 AM by brianinpa | 5 comments »

I spent some time in the shop tonight and sadly it was the first time in a long time: too many things happening at the same time. It didn’t take me long to once again figure out that woodworking is fun! The sound of the blade on the radial arm saw sang its familiar song and the whine of the shop vac added to the symphony. The planer and the jointer had chips flying through the air. Saw dust fell to the floor and over at the lathe wood shavings just peeled off of a leg as I touched it wi...

Saw Blade Cleaning - My way?

07-03-2009 03:54 AM by ChunkyC | 8 comments »

Well I had some down time in the shop this evening and thought it would be a good time to do some loooong needed maintenance. Tonight’s chore, cleaning saw blades. I’ve always use some form of a pitch and resin remover in the past. But after the last move, most things, including the resin remover, never made the trip this far west. So I did some reading on the WWW and the two most popular methods to clean saw blades, sans resin cleaner, is: 1) Simple Green2) Oven Cleaner...

Makita 4.2 Gal MAC 2400 Oiled Twin Hot Dog Compressor

07-03-2009 03:46 AM by ND2ELK | 15 comments »

After doing a lot of research, I settled on this Makita air compressor. It is by far the most unbelievably quiet compressor I have ever heard. Because my shop is small, I am trying to cut noise as much as possible. It is a little heavy, but that is a side effect of being well built. I do not plan to use it much out of the shop, if at all. The recovery time is very fast. This is an awesome compressor and I highly recommend it to anyone. Because my shop is small, I need to ...

another kick back story

07-03-2009 01:03 AM by sval229 | 5 comments »

“You’re not ready to go back in the shop yet.” Yep, heard it from my doc., my wife, the kids (all grown), and my physical therapist. I had rotator cuff surgery on my right (dominant) shoulder in early May and I’m fortunate enough to have a lot of movement back without a lot of pain. Well I started off with a bandsaw box when my arm was still in a sling. No problems so far. I’m ready to move on to bigger and better.My daughter was looking for a dresser so I fig...

Kitchen Remodel #15: The drawer fronts

07-02-2009 09:55 PM by Karson | 35 comments »

Once the weather warmed up I was able to go outside to spray the drawer fronts. This is the back that will be screwed up to the drawer and so it will never be seen again. So here is your last chance. It’s quilted maple veneer. I used it because it was big and i had a lot of it and I wasn’t sure that I’d ever use it so now some is gone. I can’t believe that I never took a picture of the drawers being sprayed. But, here they are installed. on the drawers. ...

Kitchen Remodel #14: The Veneering gets going again

07-02-2009 08:47 PM by Karson | 12 comments »

Well it’s been 232 days since I last posted on my Kitchen remodel. It’s not that I haven’t done any work. It’s just that I haven’t posted. I’d built the base cabinets and installed them in earlier blogs and it was time to get the drawer fronts created. Let me say this, “My wife is a trooper, she is willing to live with the mess (begrudgingly), but she still puts food on the table and doesn’t make me take her out to eat until it’s fin...

Blind nailer.........where to buy?

07-02-2009 08:35 PM by Al | 4 comments »

I recently read about a technique called “blind nailing” and thought I’d invest in the process and tool except I can’t find the tool. I checked in with Coastal and Tools Plus but they don’t carry it. Any suggestions? Thanks Al

This week we finished our new garden shed…and the consequence from that is that I will get a chance to completely re-do my shop…it will be a work in progress…but I am really looking forward to turning out a lot more shop projects…and most of all having the room to put things in a proper order… When we got word that we were going to make the shed (see my story on my shed) I decided I would stop all wood working until i could re-organize the shop…right now...
