Okay, I had some difficulties so here is the video, it should work now. It was too long and therefore made youtube not accept it so here it is. Sorry for that. Also it kind of jumps around so it may be hard to understand what I doing but I was strained for time and had to cut out alot of stuff. Thank you and enjoy.
Hello again, another random rambling. I just thought I’d keep you updated on what’s going on lately in my shop. So you may have known from my thickness sander blog, that I have been agonizing about whether or which sander to buy for many months now. Well, Yorkshire Stewart finally pushed me back over the edge to make my own from his blog (Thanks again!). This was the design that finally got me excited about making my own: It’s small and compact and just what I needed. So, I order...

just wanted to say hi. and that i have limited skills with wood. and wood like some advice on what to start with to build my skills and confidence?
Saturday was the day. Mr. Dorje came over with the tools and know-how, I provided assistance when able. We spent about seven hours, milling five logs each between six an eight feet long, and about 26” in diameter. The two widest logs we milled into 10/4 slabs, the rest we milled closer to 5/4 planks. The 10/4 is ear-marked for a friend of mine who will use it to make electric guitar bodies. The rest? I’ll figure that out when it is dry and as the need arises. It was a g...
After locating some 4” “green” sewer and drain line; I started to connect the dust collector. By using a series of “y’s”, elbows, and blast gates I was able to make a main branch that will run to the jointer, planer and large sander; a branch to a floor sweep, and a branch to the existing 2” duct line. I still have the second 4” connector on the main DC free for expansion if needed. So far I have just “friction fitted” these connect...
As usual in this series, this blog has nothing to do with woodworking and everything to do with keeping your sanity. On Saturday, long before the sun came up, Carleen and I hit the road for Winnemucca, Nevada. We stopped at Arock on the way to pick up a granddaughter and a spare, kid that is. After about 3 hours of fighting a snow storm we dropped down into Winnemucca. The reason for the trip was the annual ranch rodeo. For a lot of years the people” in the know” have declar...
After a long battle with the flue in my house, I’m finally able to get back in the shop. I had a list all ready of the things that I wanted to build around the house, but of course that got scrapped by necessity. As soon as I know what it is that I am actually going to be working on list wise, I’ll make sure and post it. This weekend, my wife, Jenny, wanted me to work on some garden stuff for her. She gets real excited about playing in dirt and some part of me just doesn’t want to discoura...
