Not much left to go here! We left off with the box in my make-shift box vise, with the hinges glued in place…I began yesterday by cutting and cleaning-up as many pegs as I’ll need to pin them on, in this case fourteen.Then I’ll measure to set the Drill Stop depthSetting the Drill Stop. I used a couple of spare boards to get close to the height, then fine-tuned by adjusting the drill in the chuck a little…I had pre-drilled these pilots slightly undersized to create less...

Just for Fun... #10: Some Assembly Required...

01-05-2010 09:36 PM by littlecope | 11 comments »

After making the hinges and knob in Episode #9, it was time to return to the box again. I had taken the time to sand the sides as I went, so all that was left to sand were the panels. After that was done, I was left with a difficult choice. Both panels looked good as the top, and turned either way, forwards or backwards! I finally made the choice (probably the wrong one) and it was assembly time.Clamped one side, with the handle next to the desired corner…Then the Other…This whole...

Tools and tool troubles. #3: Clamp storage ideas.....have any?

01-02-2010 06:40 AM by Roz | 16 comments »

Hello to you all and Happy New Year! I need help and advice. If any of you have ideas and experience with storing long clamps, I would really appreciate your insites on what has or has not worked for you.

I did not want to give up the floor space it required. I am thinking of putting them on ...

pipe clamp suggestions

12-18-2009 05:35 PM by RKW | 21 comments »

We all know that you can never have too many clamps and acquiring a sufficient collection of clamps takes alot of money and usually alot of time. A while back I purchased two bessey 3/4 pipe clamps for $13.00 each and two 2ft threaded pipe nipples for about $8.00 each. This came out to around $22.00 per clamp. Recently i was at harbour freight. I will first say that i have a love hate relationship with this store. Their blades and bits are not worth a crap. However, i have bought se...
