I Stumbled on to this by chance, this is definitely a unique approach to woodworking. I love this. Per the description On Site: This is a Marble Machine (definition: A Do-Nothing or Rube Goldberg Type Machine) This is intended to be an awkward, overly complicated mechanism for the sole purpose of entertainment and to make noise in the process. People seem to enjoy watching gears turn and marbles running around in circles making noise. There are 16 gears hand-cut from ½” Bal...
I was down in Laguna and took some pictures of this reputed 38,000 lb behemoth. My guess is the wheel diameter is 66”-72”. Curiously the height capacity betweenthe guide blocks is only about 14”, so the saw must have been used in a differentsetup for initial slabbing of logs, or a different saw was used for the rough workwith the big trees and this saw was used for cutting dimensioned beams. The upper guide is not adjustable, but it does appear to be removable so conc...
I drew out all the cuts after I planed them out in Sketchup and then got to use my new bandsaw for the first time. Everything came out perfectly. I decided I would glue all the pieces together instead of nailing them. I started off by gluing the randomizer and then measuring for the walls. It did not take too long. I made sure to wait and hour for the glue to dry before I started on the walls but other then that it probably only took one hour. After I had it all glued together I sand...
I Spent the day building the walls for the shop. Each 4 foot panel is built separately so if I ever have to take it down, the panels can go with me. The lower panel beneath the open window can come out with a few screws if I need to forklift anything in or out of the shop. I need to get all the rest of my tools to the shop and get everything set up and finalized, but I’m happy with the progress made!
In this episode I give you a tour around my garage shop. Here is the link to the shop bench series.

Hey LJ! So a few weeks back I posted some mid-project photoes of how my bandsaw build was going and although it is not entirley finished and still needs little extras like a coat of paint, a stand and a fence I can now show you the fully working and (built bandsaw). Heres a quick video showing the build process… Enjoy! Its been a great project and I hope to soon post another video showing it in all of it glory.
Fun lately, has been in the form of fine-tuning and cleaning my “new” band saw…After purchasing a couple of Timberwolf Blades, I fed one on and centered it on the tires… (Tires, which will have to be replaced, when the budget allows…)I quickly discovered that my Dad had the guides set to the left, pulling the blade in and towards the body of the saw… Perhaps this is more desirable for metal cutting but I can’t help but feel it would cause undue stress...
Ok so the stool is done, I have a home repair at the top of the Honeydo, but a new request from Wifey. A rolling paper organizer for her scrapbooking paper. Sounds easy enough, have most of the stuff on hand too. Gonna use 1/2 plywood for the sides, top and bottom. Have some 1/4 plywood for the back on hand, along with some nice 1/4 hardboard for the shelves. The top and bottom will be dadoed to the sides and extend past the sides and back so I can add a trim lip to hide the ply’s...
