My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #1: Making connections

01-28-2013 02:54 AM by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Hello Readers, Well I got some good feedback from my previous blog entry so I decided I might as well start a new series for my new small business and chronicle the ups and downs of starting my business. Enjoy! This weekend I made significant contactions with a potential customer that would allow me to sell my items in a local co-op market. The market is for natural and organic foods as well as a small merchandise section that my stuff would be placed. I am hoping to make a deal on this...

Assembly Table #1: The idea!

07-14-2008 11:21 PM by Callum Kendall | 5 comments »

I was thinking this weekend about what I will need in my shop when I have finshed the build. I liked the assembly table that Marc (the wood whisperer) made in one of his videos. This is my fist attempt at sketch-up, so hear is the idea :) Any suggestions feel free Thanks Callum

Need to find new storage for my lumber

11-30-2008 11:11 AM by daiku1 | 5 comments »

in my current shop, I built home-made storage arms out of 2×4’s and plywood. Most of my lumber is stored horizontally. I would like to move my lumber out of the shop and into a storage building, where I would like to store it vertically. I need to do this to gain some space for a jointer/planer coming my way. I am somewhat worried about warpage. Can anyone tell me if they have had good luck with vertical storage? Any tricks?

Wine Rack Expedition #4: Result of Monotony

03-28-2009 06:34 AM by Demowen | 5 comments »

Well folks, 160 dowel holes later, I’m ready to call it quits. I don’t mind hard work, but repetition drives me crazy! Here is a snapshot of some of those dowel holes…Now, notice the markings on the end grain. This is important to me so that I don’t keep having to second guess myself when I am putting things together. I have those pieces marked ‘L’ or ‘R’ for left or right and numbered from top to bottom. I mark all the pieces on the right ...

Another LJ get together in Michigan

11-17-2009 07:57 PM by jockmike2 | 14 comments »

As it were. SteveMI. Stopped by to say hi today much to my surprise and pleasure. We talked like old friends for 2 hours before he had to hit the road. He had stopped back at Raven Farm to do some more shopping, without me, of course. He promised next time to include me. We had a great time and he got to see my messy shop first hand. Will I take the messy shop record? Who knows. We did talk about another Michigan get together maybe in January or Febuary. What do the rest of you Michiganians t...

Garden swing #1: The plan

08-16-2011 10:56 PM by benihun | 0 comments »

The first thing in creating is imagining. The best way for me to develeop my design floating in my head is to create a 3D model of it on the computer, so I made one in Google SketchUp, which can be viewed and downloaded also. Here is a perspective view of it: Those triangle shaped things between the top and the seat are the boundaries of the chains the seat will be hanging on. The large grid-looking thing represents the rope net for the kids to climb on. The detailed plan for ...

Hand Tool Journey #28: Stanley SW #246 Miter Box Restoration #2.. Tear Down..

04-21-2014 09:07 PM by Airframer | 7 comments »

Late last night while waiting for Game of Thrones to come on (don’t judge me!) I spend a couple hours taking this apart and separating all the parts in labeled bags. The 2 up rights were frozen in their bases and this is where everything went horribly wrong when I was taking apart my 358 so I wanted to be careful not to snap off the threaded end. Off to WallyWorld I went and returned with some Marvel Mystery Oil. Cut it 50/50 with some mineral spirits in a spray bottle, sp...

DIY Lathe #2: The better base!

05-24-2008 01:25 PM by Marcel T | 2 comments »

Hey guys! Taking advantage of the long weekend here in Canada, (so this was last weekend) I made a better base for my dremel. I was taking it apart to see why it was squeaking (trapped sawdust) when the idea hit me – drill the existing screw holes all the way through the body, and get a longer screw to hold the dremel together (like the old screws) and hold the dremel to the base. Well, I didn’t have a screw quite that long and thin, but I did have some short screws of the correct diameter. S...
