https://youtu.be/NL-KcL0LvNo Hello again folks! In my continuing work with reclaimed wood, I made a rustic bird house! I also made a video about it! Enjoy!
https://youtu.be/fPf5VXlwekQ Hi there folks! Just thought I’d share with you all my latest project, where I make a sign for my workshop out of an old cutting board. The finished piece is not perfect, but neither is my woodworking!! Hope you enjoy!
My Version 1 blast gates were… functional but with a structural design flaw. Whenever I placed torque on the blast gate for any reason (hanging downwards of spiral 6” hose or bumping a machine into it while moving machine around, etc), the HVAC sheet metal sometimes compressed against the sliding 1/8” hardboard. I should never of cut out a U shaped notch for the bolts, but instead drilled dedicated holes. Plus, the blast gate structure stuck out waaaay too far. Lessons ...

Entry on 1/18/2016: Watching some Disney this weekend I have come up with a name. She will be called, “Tiger Lily”! After getting some quotes from the lumber yard it occurred to me that, since I can’t get 4×10’s, I will have to scarf more than one joint to get the planking and board lengths for the 16.5 footer. This will add significant extra cost with a lot of waste. I decided to go to the 15’ version and, even though I’m losing about two feet o...
Entry on 1/15/2016: Hi everyone! I am an avid steelhead fisherman in Southeast Michigan. The rivers down here are a little difficult to drift a float like I would prefer. It’s hard to get into a good hole due to lots of overgrowth on the banks and the majority of the river being private property. My solution is the Power-Drifter from Glen-L. It will allow me to slow my travel down the river, hotshot, fly fish, or drift with a spinning combo or centerpin. I will also get some good ...
