I’m building a spray room today in my shop and need to exhaust the fumes but the explosion poof fans are very expensive. The cheapest one I could find is about $600 dollars. So this is what I planed and I’m looking for your impute, ideas and thoughts. My shop is in my basement so it is mostly underground. The size is 30 feet X 60 feet. I’m going to build a wall across the shop 30 foot and 15 feet off the wall leaving a room 15×30. Then cutting that in half leaving 2 rooms 15×1...
I am getting ready to start a new project that when completed calls for spray on shellac.I have no experience with spraying systems and not sure what to get or look for. I’ve got a large (60 gal) compressor should I be looking at a regular sprayer that you might see in a hardware store, or should I look at an HVLP system that a woodworker supplier would sell. If anyone uses either of these methods I would like some input.
Been awhile since I was able to post. Dentist messed up my jaw and have been in constant pain since just before Christmas. After seeing specialist they decided it wasn’t my teeth but a torn ligament in my jaw. At least I can concentrate now that the pain is controlled. Enuf of my lamentations…let’s see if I can remember how to post the pics. ;-) I do not have any photos of the sides being put on as I was home alone. It is quite a chore, as you have to temp. hang it, ...
What a great Sunday I had. And since the J-E-T-S were on I didn’t miss watching any football. Just kidding, gotta give them credit, they still had a nice year. Anyhow, back to my nice day. My compatriot John T, came over today to help me with some odds and ends. First, the cover of my Ridgid drill press was broken off where it screws into the top. So we lathered it up with some epoxy, and that seems to have fixed it. Also, John gave me a tutorial in cleaning up old hand saws. Here...
So i have all these nice jigs sitting around and I really need to slap some finish on them. What’s the best finish for shop jigs? - Brad
Today I worked on attaching the MDF’s skins to the footboard and also worked on the rails.The footboard was nothing special to work on, but I do had to modify the side rails.Originally, the side rails where designed to be hollow beams made out of 3/4” mdf. All 4 sides of each rails where meant to be glued and screwed together. Yesterday I assembled and let them dry and today I “load tested” for any extreme flexion or any sign of structural weakness. I was not very happ...
Many Years ago, for Christmas, my Dad gave me one of these really cool Smithsonian Star FindersBy “Dialing In” the correct Date and Time, it tells me what the Night Sky is showing for constellations outside. But, more often than not, it would find a home in a room next to a window and get blown over by the wind. The original plastic stand that it came with was hinged and the hinge finally broke in one of it’s many falls. I replaced it, using the plastic one as a guide, with ...
As posted on Into the Woodworks (June 17, 2009) Sharing it on here for those who haven’t visited my blog/website. I don’t consider myself an “expert” in the field of woodworking and designing. Though people seek my advice on design and materials, I have to be honest. This gives me a sense of fulfillment in my chosen line of field. My sincere gratitude to those who support and believe in my works! I just wish I had another lifetime to discover more possibilities on desi...
