The great rebar kerfuffle

2186 days ago by Alan | 5 comments »

custom,furnitureThis blog is on my website, but I thought I’d post here as well. It doesn’t have a whole lot to do with woodworking other than how it relates to treating customers, but it’s kind of a funny story. re’-bar- a steel bar or rod used to reinforce concreteker-fuff’-le- an annoyingly trendy synonym for a dustup Not so long ago my wife, the sweet and lovely Penny, and I went shopping for a new bedMore… and ventured into one of the ubiquitous ...

Of hops and hardwoods

2193 days ago by Alan | 1 comment »

My wife and I occasionally drive up to Wisconsin for a variety of reasons. The Milwaukee Art Museum, which is phenomenal, the scenery, or just to get away from Chicago for a while. One of the must do’s on these tripsMore… is to pick up a few cases of a craft beer that’s unavailable south of the Wisconsin border. Neither of us is a really big beer drinker, but when we do indulge, it’s usually a microbrew of some sort, and this one is a particular favorite. There seem...

2198 days ago by Alan | 2 comments »

When we made our reservations, we told each one about Penny’s severe lactose intolerance- no dairy whatsoever.More… Both places were in the same price range. The first was an upscale national chain- very corporate, impersonal and LOUD. Even though we let them know about Penny’s situation in advance and also told the server, he still gave her a dipping sauce m...

Fine furniture and the zen of wine glasses

2198 days ago by Alan | 2 comments »

My wife and I attended a wine tasting a few months ago where the focus was on the glasses. The purpose of the tasting was to learn how and why different glasses affect the taste and enjoyment of wine. More…I was very skeptical going in, but it was an eye opening and taste bud opening experience. The shape of the bowl, its size, and even its composition can have a huge impact on how the wine smells and tastes. The shape helps determine where the wine hits your tongue and how the flavors ...

I Rise to the Challenge ... sort of

2199 days ago by Hibernicvs | 4 comments »

Okay, here’s my best shot. I tried to use “sketch up,” but I figured that, combined with tax time (I’m a CPA) the frustration was too much. I hand-drew my idea from a sketch I made during singing practice a few weeks ago, while listening to the Basses and Baritones (or, if you want an inside joke, the Third and Fourth Tenors) screw up their parts while the director tore out what little hair he has left. Of course, I did this while watching some weird Sherlock Holmes...

Delta T2 Fence #6: How to setup and install on a Craftsman tablesaw

2283 days ago by Jamie | 13 comments »

Since I have installed the Delta T2 fence on my Craftsman tablesaw, I have had a few people asking how I installed it, especially, how I installed the fence so that it would zero properly. For those that are thinking about installing this fence on a craftsman, you WILL have to drill new holes in the rails. You can use one of the existing holes, but you will not be able to ‘0’ the fence. I wish that I had taken pictures of each step to further clarify the information listed be...
