No more brushing Lacquer

09-20-2018 08:42 PM by Woodwrecker | 5 comments »

My good friend Barry Reiter, who is an “elder” in our woodworkers guild (CFWG.ORG), and a retired chemical engineer put on a presentation last week on spraying lacquer.His depth of knowledge and experience made the presentation very enjoyable and I learned a lot.I hope there is a part 2 and maybe 3, because the hour allotted just wasn’t long enough. Anyway, I got the bug for trying out what I learned, and the next day in the shop I took out my little detail HVLP 4oz spray...

Life happenings #12: The bathroom disaster.

09-12-2018 11:36 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I was debating on weather I ought to put this in here, but there is a lot of working with wood in it, along with a lot of other things, so why not. A couple of weeks ago we had a fitting fail in our master bathroom. We had to pull everything out of the room to gain access to the leak. Well, my wife has been wanting to remodel the bathroom for the last 16 years, so while everything is out of it, why not? Other than it’s a ton of work and expense. I am posting the first 3 videos, d...

Shop stuff #134: The OTHER saw bench.

08-17-2018 07:11 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I got a question on my second saw bench. The first one I built was the one from Billy’s Little Bench and I have used it on just about every project I have done after that. I have used it for other things too. The second one I built is of my own design to help out with some of my physical short comings. That, and it is always nice to have a second one for working long stock. Some folks just use some sort of prop at the other end of long stock, but this one serves in other areas too....

Shop stuff #133: Roubo build part 5

08-15-2018 11:27 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Reaching and recognising my skill limitations with hand tools, I resort to the tried and true. You have to know how to pick your battles sometimes. I thought I was beat, turns out I just needed a break to rethink the situation. Not everything turns out as hoped, but success is where you take it. View on YouTube

Big cabinet for the new home #6: Its done! Wrap up, "Once you go black......"

08-03-2018 04:51 PM by Lalen | 6 comments »

Spread over three months, this thing is finally done. Quite the adventure and I learned a lot. Just wanted to share some final in-use pictures and thank those who gave input. One bit of feedback early on led me to the change of the doors from 6 top to bottom to 12 with a small upper and a lower door. I also put 3 hinges on the lower door to ensure it is well supported over time. (middle one is off center so it won’t interfere with the shelf.) For those who expressed interest in ...

Shop stuff #132: Roubo build Part 4

08-02-2018 11:30 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Finally! The slabs come together as one unit. My first try at a draw bore loose tenon joint. It was an interesting experience with a lot of groaning from the tight fitting tenons. I could not tell this part of the story in 8 to 12 minutes. It had to go just over a half hour, but I think the story is worth telling. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #131: Roubo build part 3

07-25-2018 10:35 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Facing the consequences of inexperience with working with slabs this big and a bit of carelessness I carry on and get the slabs ready to join them edge to edge. I decided by the end of it that since I have no real “plan” other than a picture in my head I will push on through and fix things a bit later. Long hot work but they finally get to the point where I can start joining the slabs in the next video. View on YouTube
