Cherry book rack #2: Hours in Photo Shop

3 days ago by sandhill | 4 comments »

A few weeks ago I posted a project I had built that I am sure everyone has seen in the woodworking magazines as well as a few books and in the post I had shown my third book rack and yes I am tired of making this exact project but I cant stop.

Contractor Clipboard, Why didn't you think of this!

6 days ago by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

If you use a clipboard on the job, you know how difficult it is to find a place to put it down while you handle the tape measure or tools you’re using. There’s never a good place to put it except to tuck it under your arm where it often gets dropped. Solve that problem by building a clipboard with a spring clamp on the back and you’ll never look for a spot to put it down again. Here's a YouTube video which shows more details.

As you may know if you are following along, I have been putting up a compressed air plumbing system based on rubber air hoses, 2 compressors, a regulator / filter and an overhead air hose reel… I came across a popped open drain valve on the filter yesterday afternoon (good thing I turned the compressors off!).

14 days ago by Lazy_K | 7 comments »

Sharpening: gives me headaches just thinking about it! Not because it is difficult! It is NOT! but it is the prime example of a place where every effort to “simplify” or make it easier has resulted in More confusion and More difficulty! it started at least 150 years ago with the first Victorian era quick and easy sharpening jigs and guides. and has gone rapidly downhill. Sharpening, you should do it once a day for every tool you used that day. at the end of the day put t...
