repurposing scrap keepers or burners #1: when to keep when to burn

07-20-2015 09:38 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 1 comment »

We all accumulate scrap. Some scrap can be cut down and repurposed into other projects, some can be salvaged and others just need to be thrown in a burn pile. Knowing what can be re used really depends on what you typically make. if you have a lot small pieces and you build wooden toys then more than likely you can reshape those into functional pieces, how ever if you are some who builds furniture small pieces of scrap are not going to do you any good. My self i primarily build picture frame...

Keeping up with your glasses

07-11-2015 11:32 PM by poospleasures | 8 comments »

I have to use reading glasses for many tasks in the shop. I do not wear them except for close up stuff or if the area is a little dark, they were always somewhere out of reach as all my shirts do not have pockets. Now the idea. Use two rare earth magnets one inside and one out side located about where the pocket would be. These will hold your glasses very securely and will catch and hold them if you just get them close. Of course the stems or other parts must be metal which will attract a ma...

The shop already has four speakers and an amplifier (read about the Lepai amp) in place. The music source has been either an old car stereo or more recently a MP3 player, each have pros and cons. Ideally the right solution would be touchscreen (no room for a mouse and keyboard), have internet access a...

Group build for Charity

06-30-2015 04:54 PM by Christian Holihan | 0 comments »

The non-profit I started is getting ready to build our 2nd project. The concept behind Artisan Care is to create a chance for woodworkers of all levels to come together to learn and make something greater together than they could on their own, then give it away. Our first project went really well and now we are moving toward build number 2! This table will be delivered to a elderly couple raising their granddaughters in Fairview, TN. Their house was recently fully renovated and is n...
