Current Project #34: Triangle desk

09-08-2016 07:02 PM by Dave Rutan | 7 comments »

Just to assure both of my fans that I’m still around, I’m posting this peek of what I’m currently working on. It’s that standing desk that I mentioned in a previous blog entry. It will sit on the corner of a desk top, thus it’s triangular. The ribs you see are to allow adjustability in case the user breaks their lleg and has to sit instead of stand. I guess it would also work if they used a high stool. If you look on the left side of the picture you can s...

Building the Spine Desk #1: Cutting and Gluing

02-03-2016 03:50 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

I’ve set out to build a desk that I saw online. In this case much of the work has been done for me because the website where the desk is sold actually lists the dimensions of the parts. That said, I’m making a few small changes. I’m not revealing my target until it’s done, so stick around to see where we end up. [Below] It’s just possible that this project could be made from a quarter sheet of plywood. I’m not sure yet, plus I’ve already violated ...

Project Ideas, Hmm... #2: Thoughts on an Adjustable Standing Desk

01-05-2016 08:30 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

I’ve got a challenging project coming up for my church. The new preschool director has asked for a stand up computer desk. I was going to build something similar to the one I built previously for the church secretary [link], but more square instead of angled. Now I’m thinking I want to make this project: a) mounted to the wall, (like the other one)b) able to be lowered somewhat easily for those who don’t want to stand up. The computer there might be used by others durin...

The Tinker's Apprentice #1: A Beginning

04-03-2015 06:37 PM by droogs | 2 comments »

Where to start? At the beginning I suppose. Well, not the very beginning as that would entail going all the way back to a rather dreary wet Tuesday afternoon (and it was, I’ve checked) in an equally dreary and dank tenement building in Glasgow in 1968. For you dear reader I think perhaps that that may be a little too far and not very interesting and it would also be definitely far off the mark, as far as the subject of this tome to come is concerned, as could be. So, I guess I will begin s...

Laptop Case Musings

05-20-2013 06:13 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

I recently acquired a free broken laptop and have been diagnosing its repair. The keyboad and screen were shot and it needs a charger. The parts should be in this week, after which I’ll have a tool capable of word processing at least. This has put me on a line of thought of building a case for the laptop which would allow me to carry the laptop, a mouse and the charger. Ideally, the case would also act as a sort of desk for using the computer, thus I’d like to have a place to...

Shesk keyboard tray mechanism

10-10-2012 01:59 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

I didn’t want to use up the photo space on the project page explaining the keyboard mechanism, so I’ll do it here. This blog refers to my Shesk project here. At first I thought I’d just get a drawer slide to allow the keyboard tray to be pulled out or stowed, but the clearance required would have made the unit too tall and make it look too boxy. I wanted to preserve the shelf look of the unit. I tried to find an under-mount drawer slide—the expensive kind, b...

Life Struggles

09-19-2012 04:11 PM by Handi75 | 2 comments »

Hello Everyone. Just wanted to let everyone know that I’m sorry for not being around. There has been a lot going on for awhile now. Some of it has been the projects. Not enough money to purchase Lumber to be able to Toy around with some new projects. Some of it has been in the hospital for a week getting my Gallbladder removed. Some of it has been my Old Lady being in the Hospital first with phnumonia and now back in with Cellulitus in her legs. And also the last thing was we we...

Woodworking Technologies: A Programmer's Perspective #1: Technology and Wood: My first thoughts of a new horizon.

06-21-2012 07:26 AM by pmcwood | 0 comments »

Our journey starts nearly nine months ago when I first started working for a woodworking tool dealership.Before that time I only had a small amount of experience in the construction industry dealing with nail guns, band saws, circular saws and the like. Soon the sheer spectrum of what all woodworking as a whole meant became apparent and remarkably interesting. Suddenly there was a plethora of amazing technologies not yet exposed to me in the environment of a sterile server room. An opened ...

Virtual Pinball Machine #4: The Finished Product

04-30-2012 06:03 PM by milbert | 2 comments »

I thought it would be cool to follow up and post the finished product of my Virtual Pinball Experience. It actually turned out so good that I got asked multiple times whether we gutted an actual pinball machine to build this. There’s also a short video so you can see it in action. Thanks for looking!

Digital Decision Finale

03-04-2011 07:33 AM by wichle | 8 comments »

Well . . . I jumped ship from Windows to Apple. After working with windows from 3.1 thru 7 I slid a Mac Pro in next to the Dell M90. It is a different, very different experience. I spent a lot of time at the Apple store, trying to do some of the kinds of things that i use a computer for. The people were very helpful with questions, and left me alone to “putz”. I finally took the plunge! I decided to try to totally stop thinking Windows and approach the Apple as if it was my...
