"Open Window Gazing at Open Heavens" --RusticWoodArt

05-18-2007 01:32 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Open Window Gazing at Open Heavens ....and so i thought to start with some open window glazing, while at my place of having an open heaven gazing, just before the snoots come round and spoiled my imaginative phasing, since this is the cup of drought that i am bent on praising…. —-words and words and so we go till in my bowels i speak by vowels, vocalic and vocalic am i in this zip suit of my being, till all the imaginations of my heart gave way to laughing howls, and i at my...

Auxillary Workbench #1: Stock Preparation

05-18-2007 06:53 AM by mot | 1 comment »

I've just started stock preparation for this little auxillary bench. I'll keep a construction photo log going at my Picasaweb Album. I'm thining I'd like the tressel base, legs and stretchers to be about 1 1/2 inches thick. I've only got 4/4 maple so I've laminated some pieces together. The picture shows my laminations. I decided to use some of those Somona clamps that I chastised in my shop tour. I felt bad for them. They hold such premium wall space I thought I'd give the...

Reply to a 90 day old blog...

05-18-2007 06:33 AM by Steffen | 9 comments »

As most of you might know I am pretty new to this site and catching up with all of you in the whole blog world might be a little dicey at first. This is actually the very first blog I have ever written. Go figure, everyone I know blogs or multi blogs or blogs while reading blogs…you get the picture. For starters, I am always shocked when someone commisions work from me and when I tell them I don’t have time they up the anti in the form of “MORE MONEY”! I think to...

After my last blog, and now that you all understand the Australian Slanguage, I thought I educate you a little more about Australia. Life in the Australian Army… Text of a letter from a kid from Eromanga to Mum and Dad (For those of you not in the know, Eromanga is a small town, west of Quilpie in the far south west of Queensland) Dear Mum & Dad, I am well. Hope youse are too. Tell me big brothers Doug and Phil that the Army is better than workin’ on the farm R...

Tools #1: Festool Domino and Dowelmax Comparison on Simple Joints - VIDEO

05-17-2007 08:12 PM by mot | 37 comments »

Hi Folks, There is alot of Domino support and bashing, as well as Dowelmax support and bashing on various woodworking forums. Typically the owners of the tools talk about them like they are just about the second coming. The detractors talk about their excessive (relative) price. The Domino “won’t pay for itself.” The Dowelmax is no better at 250 bucks than a beadlock is at 50 bucks. Usually stuff like that. If you read close enough or care, many of the supporters an...

Everything you didn't want to know about WD-40

05-17-2007 06:09 PM by fred | 8 comments »

In the spirit of a public service announcement and not wanting to hijack the thread, here is some additional information: Water Displacement #40. The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. WD-40 was created in 1953 by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. Its name comes from ...
