Hi Folks, I’ve been off the blog for the past few very busy days, something about an infestation of mice in our RV. Problem now solved so I can get back to more pressing things. I am having a new fence put in around our place with a double 10 ft. gate for the RV. I would like to put a Brick Post with an appropriate cap on each side of this entry. I’ve never done very much of this sort of work and I like the idea of a challenge. Would anyone be able to tell me where I might find so...
OK LJs, I need some help here. I went back to the barn where I got my Performax and picked up the clamps Ralph had. As I was leaving I walked by a wood pile and these two pieces were just laying on the ground. I kicked them over as asked what they were. He had no idea and said if I wanted them, they were mine. I was told by my wise old uncle one time, “NEVER PASS UP FREE WOOD”. So I threw them into the truck. I need help in trying to identifying them. The are local Pacific...
Miter Saw / Workbench in stock lumber stage Framed base of bench, 5/8” OSB, 2×4 frame 16” O.C Base with 1/8” sacrificial hardboard on top. I need some opinions on the hardboard fastening, can’t decided which route to go. Should I use fasteners or adhesive? I’m leaning towards the adhesive, but then once you pick that, you then have a broad spectrum of types of adhesive. What has everyone else used in this application? I plan on ruining the top at so...
I know that Mark E. created this but he has not been on in almost two yrs. So I am turning to other woodworkers for help. I know that this was created with either 3/4 or 1” pvc pipe, but the question is how and where to hinge this. I have a new table saw from Shop Fox with cast iron wings and I do not want to ruin in right away. I have already ordered a different type of shut off switch with a paddle, but I want the long bar so that I can turn it off with my knee from anywhere. Mar...
HI all, I’m looking for some advise… I’ve used many different clear coat finishes and can’t seam to get the finish I’m looking for. I’m constantly having to sand dust out of my clear coats. Any suggestions? I’m looking for that furniture finsh. Thanks in advance!
I purchased the hood shown in the link below. http://www.pennstateind.com/store/R-TDHOOD.html And I want to install it on my Ridgid TA3650 saw. Now comes the good part!!! I had a plan to build a unit that incorporates the hood. The unit is 3/4” plywood (2’x4 1/2’ approx.) that bolts between the saw and the stand, you screw the dust hood to the plywood. The plan shows a drawer and shelf using the plywood “overhang” to the left of the saw and a shelf on t...
My name is Al and have recently set about making a living (trying) from my hobby in woodworking. Facebook is an integral part of marketing the products and I am currently striving to reach 100 LIKES on my page. I have two questions: 1. Is there anyone else out there who uses FB for marketing? and if so how is it going? 2. Would anyone who has read this be willing to like my page here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Panga-Design/107616129306422 Thanks all in advance and please fe...
A few years back I was filmed for an episode of the series “Woodsculpting” on the “Do-It-Yourself (DIY) network. I didn’t hear anything about it and figured it had not aired. earlier this year I noticed that the episode had been aired, and was to air again soon. unfortunately, I cannot get the DIY network on my cable, so I have never seen it. In fact, they don’t use my name or show a picture of my on the website, and the description on the DIY website of how I made spoons di...
I am in the process making a couple large teardrop shaped supports for a table, but know absolutely nothing about coopering and the two supports are rather large. Is there an expert among the Lumberjocks that could give me some pointers or ideas where to hunt for information that would be of help to a begginer. That’s the reason I’m asking here rather than a blind search on line. I could search for days and get no where. I have a basic understanding of what coopering is and unders...
I’ve got to go to a urologist tomorrow and I’m wondering who else has gone and what do they do? Yes I have noctoria and I have trouble stopping once I do get going. Listen, my dad died with prostate cancer, two uncles on my mothers side also, plus my grandad on my mothers side and my grandad on my Dads side. It just don’t look good. You know what I mean? Talk about needing some prayers, I’m begging you folks to hook up with your higher power, and ask for some help for...
