I must be in the mood to edit. I completed the video on the table for the mitre saw, and while that was uploading I did one on reusing the casters that came off the table saw. I am looking forward to relaxing from doing all that and more today. I edited 2 videos, shot the new shop tour with a special surprise in it, and I even managed to fire up the barbique and cook up some steaks. A good day for the first week in January. So, any way, here are the new videos: View on YouTube Vie...
Picked these items up at an Estate sale for $3 total. A Stanley No. 60 chisel, Buck Brothers gouge, Apex sawset and a Stanley No. HI220 hand drill. Not sure if I will ever use the sawset, but now I have one. I did a little restoration on the hand drill. Now it works perfectly smooth and looks like new.
This time I mark the layout for how the butterfly hinge is going to be installed. Then I use a steel rod and bushings to create the hinge mechanism. This all gets installed into the support system of the table so the leaf will store under the table when it is not in use. I also show how I add the splines to the edges, and a cool way to hide the end grain of the splines. Then I level the table halves, then the leaf to the rest of the top. Almost complete! As always, I welcome your questio...
Well, when last seen, I had one more mortise to chop. Have since got that done…..no more chisel work! Good thing, as I need the space on my bench’s top. Tried a few ways to clamp things up. Left the long apron un-glued, for awhile. Glued the short aprons in place. Had a lot of trouble ( and cussing) trying to get the clamps to stay put. Got out a few wedges…...they slid around…..put a nail through the wedge….clamp wanted to slide off the wedge&...
If you own any tools, you inevitable will run into rust at some point, or if you by a used rusty tool, removing rust can be difficult in some cases. Of course there are countless ways to remove the rust, all of them requiring some form or another of good ole fashioned elbow grease. I found in most cases what works well, is Wd40, 60 grit Aluminum Oxide sand paper, and a good palm sander. On my drill press this is all I used, these are the steps1st I took some disposable shop towels and wiped o...
I was in need of a little shelf to hold an alarm clock in my guest room. I decided to make one out of an old book. The difference between this and other floating books that are out there is that this one has a hidden compartment built inside! I’ve included the build video if you’re interested in making one yourself. View on YouTube
After having some issues with camera placement in my shop while video taping I came up with a camera mount that I can place almost anywhere on my walls. Using a spare tripod and some hardware I developed a French Cleat Camera Mount. This video also includes the steps I took to develop the project and a demonstration of the camera on the mount. If you have questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you. View on YouTube
Using an old driver bit I made a counter sink by cutting of the ends and grinding a blunt point on one end, then I filed a flute along the ground edge, I used a cheap bit as its a lot easier to work with and sharpen but a good quality bit may hold a better edge. I found it worked really well with an impact driver a drill driver, high speed low speed, it worked quite well even for large headed screws, dry for yourself to see if you can create one just like mine or even better ! WATCH THE...

I am sure this will ring bells with many married members, I have got to the stage where it would be nice to go to bed at night, without having to cling onto the edge, to stop myself falling out, because my significant other has hogged near enough the whole bed. We would have liked a 2m x 2m bed, but it just was not feasible in our small bedroom, so we decided on a 1.8m x 1.9m mattress, at least I should be able to lie on my back. The first job was buying the mattress, so I had the correct ...
