09-22-2018 02:20 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

A “Smart Phone” goes stupid…Computer goes on a brain fart trip ( computer LSD??) Order and PAY for a single heater insert, and two show up at the house?

That OddLots Ad #10: A tale of three tasks to do

09-14-2018 02:35 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Once that was done ( task #1) I could install both end panels onto the “mainframes”, and get rid of the clamps holding things together. (Task #2) and finally, needed to build a pair of frames to use with a drawer, and install those (task#3)........Got the rebate milled.. Unclamped the panel, set it in the leg vise, use the Wards (Stanley)#78 to plane the rebate&...

Life happenings #12: The bathroom disaster.

09-12-2018 11:36 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I was debating on weather I ought to put this in here, but there is a lot of working with wood in it, along with a lot of other things, so why not. A couple of weeks ago we had a fitting fail in our master bathroom. We had to pull everything out of the room to gain access to the leak. Well, my wife has been wanting to remodel the bathroom for the last 16 years, so while everything is out of it, why not? Other than it’s a ton of work and expense. I am posting the first 3 videos, d...

09-11-2018 03:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

I have a way of cutting mortises on the ends of a board..I use the tenon to lay out for the mortise Then I use a backsaw at an angle, to saw as much as I can….even dragging the toe back out of the cut a few times Then a mortise chisel tha...

Some black chain, cut to length, and a pair of the smallest cup hooks I could dig up… Once I got the final length ( missed it by ...

Not much was done yesterday..once I got back home…was a tad “loopy”. Hinges are a small item I can do, today. Yep...

Big cabinet for the new home #6: Its done! Wrap up, "Once you go black......"

08-03-2018 04:51 PM by Lalen | 6 comments »

Spread over three months, this thing is finally done. Quite the adventure and I learned a lot. Just wanted to share some final in-use pictures and thank those who gave input. One bit of feedback early on led me to the change of the doors from 6 top to bottom to 12 with a small upper and a lower door. I also put 3 hinges on the lower door to ensure it is well supported over time. (middle one is off center so it won’t interfere with the shelf.) For those who expressed interest in ...
