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...
One picture here shows where I poured half the bearing at a time. The excess is fairly easily filed away. You could use a grinder to get close but at $10 a pound I wanted to save every shaving. The next picture is after my 1 St attempt, it turned out pretty good. You need 80% contact so I read and this is well over that. The picture of the shield show some spatter that occurred when pouring the top half of the bearing. I don’t know what caused it, probably sweat inside I coul...
Well, I picked up this bandsaw off Craigslist last week for $40. After driving about 30 minutes from my house, I didn’t want to come home empty handed. It’s not going to win any beauty contest, but for the price I feel it was a good deal. As you can see it needs some work cleaning it up and definitely needs new tires. Will get some polyurethane tires (which cost almost what I paid for the saw) and a link best and some new blades and see how it works out. Will need to figure o...
Greetings all, Well I did not yet complete the project I was talking about last week because I got myself a little sidetracked. I was able to spend time in the shop most of Friday and the weekend. On Friday I began preparing to make some more pens. Ordered a good number of pen kits online and can’t wait for them to arrive. I am planning to provide most of my own blanks from wood I have collected. So with a little help from my Jointer and bandsaw I got a small batch of pieces to start with… ...
