The Small Stuff

1492 days ago by David Craig | 7 comments »

There was a book written a few years ago entitled Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff. While I am not an advocate of violence, I do sometimes entertain the thoughts of various purgatories for the author. I do understand Richard Carlson’s point about trying to live life stress free and not worry so much about little things, but it is the little things that often make or break us. As Charles Bukowski once wrote - it’s not the large things thatsend a man to themadhouse, death he&...

So many pies; So few fingers (post continued)

242 days ago by JustaLilJoinery | 2 comments »

I was sitting eating dinner eagerly planning out the jigs that I’m going to make for the router, drill press, TS and BS now that I have all my major equipment in place. I was even excited that the knobs and bolts kit of almost 150pc that I was going to pick up was on a really nice sale. I finally started to feel like I could start making the things that I like and not just always mickying around As a miniaturist, I have set ups for lots of different hobbies/mediums including resin ...

Workshop #4: Budget friendly finds

2220 days ago by clieb91 | 7 comments »

Ok, just a quick blurb here about a budget friendly find on some hardware. I stopped at Target to see if they had any coat hooks for the next rack I am working on for a friend and found a few that were on clearance in their Home Improvement section. I then started looking around that section more. I was able to find a multi-pack of brush nickel drawer handles and also drawer pulls for around $4 on clearance as well as misc other hardware for as low as $0.24. I have no immediate use for thi...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #21: Hinges and Hardware - Cabinet Complete

449 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 59 comments »

When we left subject cabinet, the last part of the build was done, as the upper door pieces were cut and fit and glued up. Stiles ran long on the doors, as Lysdexic correctly pointed out, to prevent spitting of the entire stile while the mortises were cut. So we know the doors needed a trim length wise. What I didn’t realize is how close I had made it re: the rails. You can see in the pics below I had to preserve all of the rail material… Whew… There was ve...

Shop Improvements #1: Hardware Rack

872 days ago by wolflrv | 5 comments »

In the process of organizing the shop I had definite need of hardware storage. I had an old dresser that I revamped and used it for the larger parts, but the small stuff was overwhelming. I had 5 generic boxes and bought 5 more plano 3700 boxes to sort everything into. Here’s a pic of the sorting process which took over 9hrs to finish…LOL! It was a long day! Next I built a rack to hold all 10 of the boxes. I used some surplus PT 1×2 stock that I had. Here’s a pi...

Making a short fence #2: Used it and have some thoughts

2328 days ago by Betsy | 8 comments »

Ok – I’ve made the short fence and have used it tonight to make my slats for my adirondack chairs. I have mixed feelings about the jig. In one sense it feels safe to use it. However, I can see that it has some potential dangers of its own. When I use my original fence and a push stick, I follow through with the cut all the way past the blade and I push the board off the table top and lift my hand straight up in one smooth motion after the cut is finished. I found that with t...

Fein removes tub surround

1748 days ago by EricWrights | 4 comments »

I had been holding off buying this tool for several years. Recently one of my customers in whose house I had installed a fiberglass tub surround had a crack appear in the soap dish of the unit. The company sent someone out to fix the crack as the surround was still within the twenty year guarantee period. The repair failed within a year and the company at its option decided to replace the complete surround. When I install these surrounds I use twice the amount of adhesive that is supplied by ...

Bowling Alley Workbench #6: There is more than 1 way to skin a cat - not so with bowling alley floors though - finally success

1747 days ago by PurpLev | 36 comments »

Yes. Finally some light at the end of the tunnel, reverse thinking, and this project seems a bit more doable, and even not much trouble at all. Originally I tried to get the (2.5” hardened) nails out by using a cat’s paw and a hammer to pull each nail out of the 2.5 laminated hard-rock maple strips. I figured once I get all the nails out of the top strip, it’ll just free it from the lamination, and be nails free… one strip at a time, until I have them all cleared ou...
