Across the Bench from Charles #3: Devil's in the details - Part 2

06-30-2018 12:37 AM by Monte Pittman | 6 comments »

Box bodies were cleaned and sanded. One note sanding, if you damage your sandpaper on ROS sander like this, I recommend to change it. I have had it leave gouges in the wood. (IMHO). Profiles were cut on top and bottom plates. But remember that every surface needs to be properly cleaned. So for the round cuts, you can use a dowel of matching radius or get a set of these rubber profiles. Wrap sandpaper over it to clean the profile. Do not roll it over the square cut edge...

Just a light work out flattening slabs. Light, yeah right. I earned my keep doing this and so did my little machines. There was enough work just cleaning up after. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #126: Fixing up my wind chimes.

06-13-2018 12:27 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

A couple of years ago my favourite set of wind chimes bit the dust. I grabbed some pressure treated fence boards I re claimed and with that, a bit of good string, a few knots and time I brought them back in a video titled “The one where I show my Ding Dong”....that’s not too much into click bait territory is it?

Life happenings #11: A garden from landscape ties.

05-27-2018 10:58 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Happy wife, happy life. I built this garden for my wife who is just fantastic at making the yard look nice with all the flowers she plants and tends. It matches other gardens we have in the yard and is pretty easy to do. Well, except for the pounding in of the 12” spikes, which hold it together, and also from moving.

This is a re edit of a video I did last year. The original was over 45 minutes long and I wasn’t happy with it at all. This one is only about 10 minutes and covers milling the slabs out of the tree with the chain saw…...freehand. View on YouTube
