This is a new journey for me to record video while building a project. I hope everyone will enjoy and learn from my experience.Any suggestions or comments are always appreciated.
If there is one thing I dislike doing, it is making picture frames, but when needs must!... Following my six year old Colombian Nephew’s ‘passing out’ from Infants School last week, there were obviously a raft of photos, and unfortunately the next stop, was my door, so I had to do some quick thinking, because I no longer had my framing equipment. It was back to my old friend, YouTube, to get some ideas, and the easiest was a video by George Berry, which showed a simple an...
Well I got sidetracked restoring the Jet sander but did spend time on this while working on that in between waiting for parts. I cut out the circle for the saw swivel clearance like six times. There was really no good way to measure it and get it right the first time because like I said with the blade guard, handle, and motor, the cutout is closer to half a teardrop then a circle. So I’d put the hood in place, put the saw in place, and see where it bound or was too close and cut it bigg...
Ok, so the next piece of shop furniture that needs updating is my radial arm saw table. The original table I built was meant to be a temporary home for the old saw after its restoration about two years ago. I spent some down time at work drawing a few different designs and ideas and then put it in sketchup when I got home. Please… let’s discuss the design before I actually make any cuts! I am totally open to any constructive criticism. Here is what I have come up with so far: Th...
So I started playing with Sketchup and came up with the basic concept for this combination bench. Here are few diagrams I put together: Next for the combination of New Yankee Miter Bench/Ultimate Tool Stand, I will add the t-tracks, clamp tracks, miter fence, and create the pocket hole jig insert. Thanks for reading.
Three coats of poly on the areas that could be accessed in this position, flip it over and three on the areas remaining and the next blog entry should be of it in place, connected, and ready to go.
We recently purchased a new washer, & dryer, & we didn’t want to spend $400 for the factory pedestals, so I’m making my own. They should cost us about $75 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This is the factory made pedestal~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The front load machines are kind of low without a pedestal. It makes it kind of tough on the back muscles.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...
My next part of the garage makeover is to build a miter saw station. I bought the plans from Ron Paulk and studied them over and over and watched his videos on building his work bench. So, I finally used Mikey’s Sketch pad to design my version of the miter saw station. Here is my plan. Sorry there is not a lot of detail in my plan but here is the jist of it. Build two cabinets that will be used for storing power tools and larger jigs and leave room for short cut offs 24 i...
This weeks Project is a great little Photo Carousel / Candy Dish It is made using Mahogany and Maple it displays 4 photos and holds a lot of candy inside..lol. A great weekend project and a project that would make the perfect holiday gift or a great gift for any occasion. And Congratulations Eric Rusch AKA Woodwrecker for winning the WWGOA DVD!
Well, I didn’t get to spend as much time over the 4 day Thanksgiving Holiday weekend as I wanted to working on this but I made some progress. I was actually hoping to have it done but not having the time and having to determine and make the template to do the cutout for the saw swivel clearance took a while. The cutout is not a continuous arc of the same radius because you need clearance for the guard here, the handle there and then the motor. And determining where to put the outlet was...
