I just received the T & J plan for the Big Rig. I am building 2 of these for the Shipping managers of the sandpaper company I work for. I have not started yet but have been looking over the plans. Photos, hints and warnings would be helpful. I would like to customize it any ideas of things to add? The rigs will be to celebrate the 50th year in business. The trailer will have the company logo and slogan. Maybe picture of the product done on decal paper.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7WtAFzQIVU So in the last month I realised that I needed to get my YouTube act together. I want to strive towards and to do this I realised I need to become more consistent and put my effort into social media! I want to aim towards at least a video every 2 weeks if not weekly while also putting more effort into the editing of the videos themselves. But I need your help, your sharing, commenting, rating and most importantly subscribing helps grow my...
New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #2: Restore & Install biesemeyer fence on the BandSaw
Be sure to check out the first part of this series where I get the saw & refurbish it… The old biesemeyer fence I am using was originally off a powermatic table saw. The shop I got it from had it set up on a saw that was used strictly for running dados. For that they cut the rails short & it only had a 18” rip capacity which worked out great for this bandsaw because I would have felt bad having to cut the rails down my self. I always feel bad modifying old vintage stuff, I...

I am one of those people who have trouble standing for very long. Although I love woodturning, standing at the lathe for a long period can become very painful. A back support helps some, but even with the support I can still have problems. Taking ibuprofen can extend how long I can stand, but I dislike routinely taking it as it can be hard on the stomach. I first came upon the idea of using a bench rest in an article by Ernie Conover in the May/June 2014 issue of Woodworkers Journal...
This is a first draft of what should become a nice illustrated tutorial on making a pair of one piece pipes. The pipe making process is much more complicated and needs a lot of tools to make. Pipe making requires: Table saw Drill press (several bits) Band saw 4” Stationary Belt sander Oscillating Spindle Sander 1” belt sander 8” disc sander ROS sanding @ 120 & 240 Hand sand with sanding sponge At this point the pipe is ready for finishing. ...
It was suggested in the comments on my first blog 2 years ago that I seek a more hand tool direction because of almost non-existent space to work. I AM a hybrid woodworker and love handtools, but have found that it is actually more and not less expensive to be completely hand tool oriented, primarily because larger projects using rough lumber are so labor and mainly space intensive as to be impractical when you are essentially forced to do most of your work outside in nice weather. What do yo...
