COASTERS #1: The Conversion from Scrap to Workable Stocks

01-26-2016 11:49 AM by BertFlores58 | 1 comment »

From Scraps to Strips. What are the available woods that are needed? They are unlimited in terms of target dimension which is a rhombus of 30×60 deg with width of 1 inch. Aside from this I need to check on the blend of colors that are classified according to dark darker darkest.. So I will use the narra stocks that I have plenty. The scrap 2×6 Narra parquet with varying thickness. These are the previous flooring used in our office. Therefore, two pieces ...

Odds 'N' Ends #4: Pallet Wood De-Nailer

01-25-2016 09:54 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

This is by far my most popular video on Youtube. Funny thing is that I almost didn’t upload it because I didn’t think anyone would be interested. I was wrong. From my channel: Getting the nails out of pallet wood can be the most time-consuming part of salvaging the wood. The pallets I have come apart pretty easily, so I wanted to find a faster, easier way to get the nails out. This is what I came up with… Pallet Wood De-Nailer

Project Ideas, Hmm... #1: USB Stick Caddy

01-25-2016 05:56 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

I’m creating this series to help record and mull over ideas for future projects. As usual, input, comments and questions are welcome. It might be interesting to see how many of these eventually become projects. I have my share of those USB memory sticks. There are two places that I keep them, my night stand drawer and on the end table where I keep my laptop. I keep thinking that there ought to be something that I could make to hold all these USB sticks so that they don’t get l...

Dave's Workshop #14: T-Wrench Handle

01-25-2016 01:31 AM by Dave Rutan | 7 comments »

“Necessity is the mother of invention” as the old saw goes. When I was researching the scroll saw that I got, I found that the special T-wrench was missing. So I looked it up and found that it is metric and 3.5mm. 3.5mm is not really a standard size as I found. They aren’t included in sets of hex wrenches and to buy a T-wrench of that kind would cost more than I’m willing to spend. Then I just looked online for a normal Allen key that was 3.5mm and found that...

Wood Trip!! #2: Getting the Shop ready

01-23-2016 04:17 PM by Phil | 2 comments »

Now that I have all of my lumber to start my projects, I need to get my garage in order and put together the shop in the best possible layout. But the first order of business is getting my vintage craftsman jointer in working condition. Oh as a heads up I very rarely and I do mean rarely buy anything tools new. Just a waste of money that can be spent on wood and more tools, but I digress. I have a Craftsman/King Sealey 101.03582 6” jointer with a fixed infeed table and adjustable outfee...

Odds 'N' Ends #2: Seal Up A Drafty Door

01-23-2016 01:06 AM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

Ugh, the woes of learning new video editing software. The footage of the whole point of this video was lost. I feel like I still was able to get my point across in the video, but it definitely isn’t my best work. I am releasing a few of these shorter videos this week as I learn how to use Premeire. Please bear with me. I hope you find this video to be useful.Enjoy! Seal Up A Drafty Door

Odds 'N' Ends #1: Quick and Easy Drawer Pulls

01-22-2016 07:22 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

This is one of my earliest videos. I had built some shop cabinets and I needed some drawer pulls, so I figured I would make some using an old plastic cabinet handle as a template. A year later and they still work, but I have a different, more comfortable design that I use now. The purpose of this video is to show that it doesn’t take much to make functional items for the shop. Let’s all sit back and enjoy this old video of me figuring out how to film a project. Enjoy! Quic...

Dust Collection #5: Remote Start for Dust Collector

01-22-2016 03:56 AM by ThomasLightle | 6 comments »

I hate having to maneuver around the shop to turn on my dust collectors. A lot of times I don’t remember until I have the cut all lined up and ready to go. I hope this small modification will make things a little more convenient.In the post-Christmas clearance, I found a set of Christmas light remote switches. I checked them out and they were rated for 120v and 15A, so I decided to try them out on my equipment. They were around $7, so it wasn’t a big gamble. I like how it tur...
