After taking the Summer off (and enjoying it immensely!) it was time to get back to Work! And after searching around in the available jobs, I was lucky enough to find Work in the finest Hospital in N.H., the Catholic Medical Center of Manchester…It seems that their Cafeteria was only open for the first and second shifts, and their third shift employees had been requesting “Hot Food” for some time… A decision was made, and the Cafe is now open for them with yours truly ...
Today is the last day of the traditional work week and I am especially geeked in regards to the following week. Every year, I usually take a week off to perform some major work around the house. Last year consisted of building flower boxes and my roofing project. This year, I decided to give home refurbishing a rest and am focusing on wood and workshop projects. I spent the last two weeks getting all my ducks in a row. Mike (jockmike2) and I visited a mill two weeks ago to pick up some woo...
“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” .....Muhammad Ali, Heavyweight boxing champ…1942 - One of the benefits of creating “Wolf’s Tooth” wood inlay bandings is that you actually get two bandings for the effort of one. What do I mean by this? When the initial cuts from the laminated stock are made on the table saw using the dedicated miter saw we flip th...
What a day yesterday turned out to be! I must have made the coffee just right (or maybe it was the pecan bars that I made the night before and had for breakfast!) because I feel like I really accomplished a lot. After a morning trip to the dentist (which I don’t like at all, but came out ‘unscathed’) and a stop at the gym, I had to stop at the store to pick up some things for my new projects. By the time I got home, it was almost noon and I thought that the day was going...
So I’ve had a little luck (Big thank you to WoodArtbyJR) getting a hold of the Hobby Hall people at the Fair and talked about my options for displaying the clock. The first option was a half wall above the display cases they store most the entries. This would be ok if the wall wasn’t 4 feet tall and started more than 6 feet above the ground. This meant, my clock would have to be displayed without the pendulum as the entire clock is over 5 feet in length with the pendulum installed...
Yesterday afternoon, I shifted my gears into the carving mode I decided to make drawer handles, & decided that a small rose would look kind of nice. Actually, to tell you the truth, I had made that decision when first designing the box.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~First I picked out a piece of cut off, & drill 3 holes with my plug cutter. These plugs will later be used to hold the rose while caving, & also for fastening to the drawer front. ...
Got an old book of DIY woodworking plans, from a used book store. First thing I flipped to was a wine rack—coincidentally, something we’ve talked about buying for our kitchen/living room. This one called out white oak, with darker walnut plugs (to conceal exposed dowel holes, and used to provide a decorative contrast). I got a chance to pick up two new hole saws, a doweling jig (neat!), my first Forstner bit, a couple of strap clamps, and a bunch of beautiful wood. Not...
