Working around the house #1: Restoring Old Hand Tools

05-04-2017 12:26 PM by ofthemound | 4 comments »

Hello again! So this is where I am at in my journey of woodworking. Over the winter I decided to invest in older, high quality hand tools. Now I have a nice set of hand tools to work with. I always heard the common phrase, ”They don’t make them like they use to!” I never really thought much of it till I was holding two Stanley Bailey hand planes, the oldest being 100+ years old. Still solid to my amazement! I spent time to restore my jack and fore hand planesĀ and now I have ...

Go home shelf you're drunk (twisted corner shelf)

05-02-2017 02:58 PM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

A couple years ago I saw a corner shelf that was a conceptual computer design on Pinterest. I thought it was really cool so I searched the internet for a real-life version, couldn’t find it. so I made one, and it was awesome, not even that difficult. And recently, ive been thinking of how I could make it more practical (A.K.A. bigger shelves) so here is my 2.0 model. Id say it looks just as good if not better than the original. If you would like to see the shelf, and its predecess...

Shop stuff #90: Spring maintenance

04-26-2017 01:09 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I gotta take a pause on the tool chest build because…well….spring! I wanted to get this out as it is seasonally appropriate. Winter is over and it’s time to get ready for the warmer weather and undo some of the things that go with winter. A whole slew of handy tips and things that will make life just a little easier. I gotta say, this is pretty much my favourite time of the year. View on YouTube

Its all about growth and i have a dream of making this my way of living and you wouldn’t know how much it would help m...

Venues #1: Gallery Calapooia Installation

04-23-2017 10:49 PM by Jerry | 20 comments »

I was recently invited to join Gallery Calapooia in Albany, OR. Today I put my work in the Gallery. About a week ago when I first got admitted, a reporter from the local press, the Mid-Valley media group, came out and shot a bunch of video of me working in the shop and did an interview. Then a reporter from another local paper came out and did an interview and took a bunch of pictures. At the end of May Albany holds its’ annual “Wine Walk”, my work will be in the front...

Shop stuff #89: Tool Chest Pt 3

04-19-2017 02:02 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

We come to the part that I am nervous about. Building drawers intimidate me. I probably over think it. First I make a prototype. Then, once I get that fitting, I use it for a pattern and set up jig for the rest of them. View on YouTube

3/4 = 18mm

04-15-2017 04:39 PM by steliart | 31 comments »

Many times when I’m designing in sketchup, either following a project design, idea or measurements from a video that are in inches, it’s quite confusing for us who did not learn into the imperial system but in metric to get the measurements accurate and loosing a mm there and there that ads up to a significant number.Watching many videos either tutorial or projects etc. when they give dimensions some say i.e. 1/2 inch and transform this to 13mm… well we all know that an inch...
