Does it hurt to go to a urologist?

07-11-2007 01:36 AM by jockmike2 | 24 comments »

I’ve got to go to a urologist tomorrow and I’m wondering who else has gone and what do they do? Yes I have noctoria and I have trouble stopping once I do get going. Listen, my dad died with prostate cancer, two uncles on my mothers side also, plus my grandad on my mothers side and my grandad on my Dads side. It just don’t look good. You know what I mean? Talk about needing some prayers, I’m begging you folks to hook up with your higher power, and ask for some help for...

What time is it?

07-10-2007 02:42 PM by Karson | 8 comments »

What Time Is It? On some air bases, the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle. One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, “What time is it?” The tower responded, “Who is calling?” The aircraft replied, “What difference does it make?” The tower replied, “It makes a lot of difference. If it is an American Airlines flight, it is 3 oR...

Coat of Arms commission #2: 10 Hours now.

07-10-2007 02:00 PM by Roger Strautman | 8 comments »

These pictures are of a few stages in the next 6 hours of carving. Because the maple is so hard this is a slower process than normal. I am using at times this Foredom hand carver which is speeding things up and is it working out great. That’s all until next time!

Morris inspired chair #11: Invest in foam rubber futures

07-10-2007 07:32 AM by Bob Babcock | 6 comments »

Wow…..is foam rubber expensive. We picked up the foam last week but have been waiting for the zippers to arrive (had to order online). The seat is 5” of high density foam wraped in 1” of low density foam and then batting. The back is just 4” of low density foam wrapped in batting. They feel pretty comfortable. The seat is a little stiff but should break in quickly with me on it. Hopefully Suzanne will get the cushions done this week. We bought two materials. Niether...

Weekend windows

07-10-2007 06:59 AM by Bob Babcock | 10 comments »

I didn’t get to resaw any wood for the summer challenge yet. Still having some issues with the bandsaw and was busy with 5 windows and work this weekend. We are replacing all our old windows with new Pella Prolines. Nice to get rid of the storm windows and they should really save some energy. We are using all new construction instead of the replacements. We didn’t want to lose the glass area and these are still going pretty quickly. The pictures I had a headache in the mo...

Handplane Restoration #19: Cleaning Parts with Citric Acid

07-10-2007 06:12 AM by WayneC | 28 comments »

Based on an article by James Thompson I found on OldToolsShop.com. I though I woud try using Citric Acid for rust removal. The article can be found at the following link. http://www.oldtoolsshop.com/z_pdf/restore/RemovingRust-CitricAcid-ne.pdf Citric acid is used in food processing and seems to do a good job removing rust. I checked the local yellow pages and found a local beer home brewing store. I called them and confirmed that I could purchase citric acid for $5 per pound. I made...

projects

Looks like I haven’t posted many projects of late. I got so much done this spring, projects wise, have I really been up to nothing lately? How can I call myself a woodworker if I’m not spending anytime in the shop. Have I really been slacking? Surely not. I mean, I don’t think so… If I stretch my brain a bit… the past comes into slightly clearer focus…. aha! I’ve been working at wrapping up my in-laws three-season porch. It’s been a long work...

Craftsman - Stickley Projects #9: Had just an hour

07-10-2007 04:49 AM by Paul | 2 comments »

Not much time this week – this will probably be my only blog entry – maaaaybe one other evening this week I will have a bit of time back in the shop? Unfortunately, I don’t think I’m going to get anything ready for the summer challenge :( Sized all the drawer sides to length Practiced on scraps with the PC jig (4212) on through dovetails for the drawer sides to back joinery. It’s a little more complicated on through dovetails (more steps, flipping templat...

Entertainment Center #6: Back in the Saddle

07-10-2007 04:20 AM by Dano | 1 comment »

Well, I made it back into the shop this weekend, fingers are a bit tender and that slowed me down a tad but I did make some saw dust. I also got a package on Friday from Amazon with my new Kreg (small gloat) miter gauge in it. It went together fast and according to my engineer’s square was right on the money. Building this entertainment center is a true learning experience. I want to get it built but I keep getting side tracked to build other items to aid in the making of the entertainment...
