Why buy it when you can make it! #31: I went for some Swedish meatballs, and walked out with a bonus chuckle
My 3 year old daughter associates the letter I with 3 things: her name, ice cream, and IKEA. This past weekend, I took her to IKEA to get ice cream, and to cause chaos running around the showroom. Armed with a bag (which was quickly forgotten) she got to work, wrecking a few hours of havoc in the store (and my psyche). About 2 hours in, we got to the dresser section. While I was there, a husband and wife couple were “cordially” debating over the stained or laminate venee...
A closely watched internet auction ended this morning. And by closely watched, I mean a total of five people, including myself, noticed it a few minutes before the end and checked back from time to time to see if it attracted any bids. It didn’t. Maybe it was the thousand dollar starting price that turned away prospective buyers. Or it could have been that the item was a worn out wooden hand plane with an old TV antenna stuck in the end. To be fair, it wasn’t ONLY a worn out wooden hand plane...

If you’re new to woodworking, or just thinking of starting, then welcome to a world of deep creative satisfaction, personal discovery and the meditative bliss that comes with the sound of a finely tuned hand plane schicking across a piece of finely figured wood. That, and utter frustration, sawdust, splinters, obsession and alienation from polite society. It’s been just a few months since I set out on the same path. I just wanted to build some bookshelves. And today… well...
Well this is only my first blog because i have been under utilizing the time i have been given during workshop for the past 2 weeks using my shop time as a study hall for my other classes.:( However, from this point forward i plan to take a new lead in working more diligent while also effectively using the class time provided by Mr. Rocco lol. Although i have been very neglectful to my wood shop aspirations of lately, that is not my only setback. Both me and my mother have both had our ow...
Having survived Black Friday at my local Woodcraft last year, I considered myself as brave as any man since Homer’s Odysseus. (That would be Homer of antiquity, not Homer Simpson.) Odee, as his friends may have called him, was headed home after a long day fighting the Trojans when he got lost and decided to go on an Odyssey. I think Odysseus must have been a woodworker. He was tall, muscular, the ladies loved him- he was the Stumpy Nubs of his day. But most of all, he was able to go wherever ...
My neighbor had an apple tree loaded with fruit so I decided to make applesauce and can it for the winter. Since I don’t have one of those crank apple peelers, I decided to make my own power peeler with the drill and a spade bit. I clamped the cordless drill down to the counter, and used a spade bit to hold the apples. I went through this full bag of apples in about 45 minutes. Watch the YouTube Video!
Was building a pergola in the back 40 for a Koi Pond.Mostly salvaged deck lumber.Was shooting 3” framing nails into the top when the gun slipped just a little.I could tell by the lack of recoil that something went wrong.As soon as I moved the gun and saw the ding in the side of the wood I knew what happened…the gun moved enough to shoot the nail past the wood, at about an 80 degree up angle.I counted to about 4, and heard the nail hit in the street on the other side of the block.S...
