Fiberglass reinforced plastic

12-03-2009 03:41 PM by PASs | 6 comments »

O.K. I know I’m going to catch some flack on this on the LJ side. But I’m new to LJs and believe that if you limit your materials you limit your capabilities.I started playing with FRP sheeting a few years ago. You know, the stuff with the bubbly looking surface that you see in restrooms in the finer truck stops sometimes.This stuff is GREAT for some work. It’s almost indestructible, cuts well, and will just plain outlive most wood in really bad environments. I redid a laund...

Filing Cabinets in the Shop

12-03-2009 03:26 PM by PASs | 5 comments »

Didn’t find any related content so thought I’d throw this out.I keep a lot of my tools and hardware (o.k. and old magazine issues, and reference books, and sandpaper, and…well you get it) in filing cabinets.I don’t use the cheap ones, if they aren’t commercial grade, full extension, heavy duty slides I won’t get them.I don’t pay retail, it seems the new paperless business has a lot of companies getting rid of thiers. I get them at thrift stores, garag...

Apartment Projects #4: Paying the Bills

12-03-2009 12:30 PM by littlecope | 14 comments »

Yeah, Everybody’s got to do it! About 8-9 years ago, I was doing exactly that, paying the bills, when my Girl Friend casually told me about her “system”. She kept her Checkbook in the same box that the envelopes come in, and put all the Deposit Slips, ATM Slips, and Sales Receipts where the ATM Card was used, behind the envelopesMaybe a lot of people do this, but I had never heard of it and really liked the idea of keeping the whole procedure, and records thereof, in one pla...

Tools and tool troubles. #2: Buying used tools at auction

12-02-2009 06:55 AM by Roz | 12 comments »

I got a call the other day from my brother-in-law the auctioneer. He ask if I was interested in a couple of sanding tables. Knowing nothing about them I said sure I’ll give you 100.00 a piece for them. So they went through the sale and I got them both. I passed one along to another LJ who lives in my area and we split the expense. They came from a large cabinet company that went out of business. The bad news is that there were several nice tools that went very cheap the week b...

First Project

My first, very basic project, will be a keyholder. My rough sketch: I’ve already got the wood. I’ll be picking up some router bits this weekend so that I can round the edges. Updates to follow.

Starting a new project

12-01-2009 05:39 AM by Martina | 5 comments »

Hey guys, so I have been away for awhile, but I am all settled into my new place, cut off 14 inches of hair, sold a car, bought a motorcycle, got promoted on my job and ready to start woodworking again in my new garage. I am about to start on a “settee” I called it a couch, but I was corrected… LOL not much on fancy names… Any tips to look out for? This is going to be something that is used regularly…. so delicate is not good – any support bracing ideas?...

Little Guy camper Rebuild

12-01-2009 02:13 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 19 comments »

This will only happen in the spring but I just wanted to show off my latest acquisition that I’ll be modifying.Next August (22nd) will be my wife’s and my 30th anniversary. We love road trips, traveling, and state and national parks so we purchased a small camper after a search on craigslist. It’s a great little camper and in the spring I’m going to rebuild the inside and then the 30+ day trip outlining specific places throughout the country. We’re starting in Ma...
