3/4 = 18mm

04-15-2017 04:39 PM by steliart | 31 comments »

Many times when I’m designing in sketchup, either following a project design, idea or measurements from a video that are in inches, it’s quite confusing for us who did not learn into the imperial system but in metric to get the measurements accurate and loosing a mm there and there that ads up to a significant number.Watching many videos either tutorial or projects etc. when they give dimensions some say i.e. 1/2 inch and transform this to 13mm… well we all know that an inch...

shop re start the new RMR #4: stop water penetration and band saw breakdown

04-13-2017 08:58 AM by DsRMR | 0 comments »

Hello again it’s been slow going in the shop still been darn cold out plus had some water control to get under control. This was the result of poor workmanship of the pole barn that is my shop atm. The perimeter of the buildings ground work was above the bottom of the cur-agate siding, with nothing sealing the outside moisture out. I dug down about 4 inches below the siding, pulled the lower row of screws out and layed 6 mil plastic down tucking it under the siding then replaced the sc...

Projects with Red Oak Flooring leftovers #1: Looking for project ideas

04-07-2017 07:46 PM by Lalen | 8 comments »

I just ended up with about 30+ square feet of brand new leftover red oak hardwood floor material. It is about 3/4” thick, 3.25” wide and in random lengths. It has tongue and groove milled in the sides and the ends. The bottom side has some channels in it, so I’ll have to mill about 1/16th off to make it flat and parallel. (good thing i just got a planer!) Looking for project ideas that will make good use of this! Please comment with thoughts or links! I will keep...

Mongo: my first real workbench #1: Planning and Laminating

03-22-2017 07:35 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 2 comments »

All my work surfaces are specific to a tool… outfeed table on a table saw, infeed and outfeed tables on a router table, long benches on either side of a radial arm saw and power miter saw station, etc. I’ve been without a general work surface ever since I started working wood in my own shop. A such, my projects tend to move from whatever tool I’m not using to whatever tool I just used and none are really suitable for any handwork which is where my focus has started to tur...

Heavy Woodworkers Bench #2: The solution to keeping cost low (in my situation)

03-14-2017 04:55 PM by Questtut | 3 comments »

I know, not everyone is in the same situation as I am. Some are more lucky than I, and some just don’t have as many opertunities as I do. So that’s tosay, you may not be able to use the solutions I have, you may have other options I dont, but, this is what I found. As a commercial truck driver, more specifically a flat be driver, I have many opertunities to bring home what’s known as “dunnage”. In essence that is lumber (of many types and sizes) that is...
