Shop hacks #1: Finally, a shop use for those CDR/DVD-R spools.

01-30-2014 05:24 PM by RichardDePetris | 1 comment »

Don’t be a fool! Don’t throw away that CDR /DVD-R spool, use it for your tool (not that one, funny guy.) You remember those round thingys for storing CDRs and DVD-Rs we used back in the day, before them young-guns foisted their whippersnapper SSDs and USB sticks on us. I don’t care what they say, nothing beats punched cards and they sound better too! Other than for holding coasters, CDR spools are about as useless as their contents—until now. Well, this isn̵...

Log bed Sakura (cherry) #1: Hanami season, peeling

04-03-2009 03:32 AM by Junji | 9 comments »

In this time of the year, everybody goes to “Hanami” (meaning watching flower), but it usually has to be cherry blossom, not other flower in Japan. Actually it’s very nice season for a picnic or outside party after the long winter. Here is some image of Hamami. The best time to see the flower itself ends only for a week the longest, and it just started in Kobe now. But for me, I am not seeing flowers, but the skin of the cherry tree this year… I just started a...

Woodworking For Therapy #13: Cold Weather Has Some Challenges When Your Sick

03-05-2014 12:19 PM by Steve Kreins | 5 comments »

Cold weather certainly doesn’t help when most of your cutting, sanding and routing has to be done under the patio cover. I know that most of my Buddies on LJs are in worse weather regions than I am, but still, brrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Cold weather also complicates disabilities. The aches and pains are a little worse, some have to stay warm because of medicines or treatments and generally when you have a disability such as cancer, your immune system is compromised. SO PLEASE, BE CAREFUL, I P...

Stir Crazy!!!!!! (stuck in NC)

07-14-2012 04:31 PM by Ben | 3 comments »

Instead of flying my stepson to his father’s house in Florida, we decided to make it a family vacation and take the whole crew on a road trip(what were we thinking?!). On our way from Florida to my sister’s place in NC, the transmission in the van started giving out. We made it to my sister’s, but getting it to the garage was touchy and we just barely got it in the lot. I’ve been going nutty with nothing to do but drink beer (oh so sad, I know) . Now a week in, I deci...

My 21st Century Bench Revisited #2: My 21st Century Bench Revisited #2:

07-18-2010 12:10 AM by fineamerican | 4 comments »

The new saw bench is working out great. Very strudy, with no side to side wobbling. The saw Im using was given to me by a friend. Its a old Disston with one missing tooth. It cuts very straight, and very quick to my surprise. The ends of my cuts are farily square, for someone who doesnt have alot of time behind one of these. I think this bench will be a great exercise in using these larger hand saws. From the look on my face one could gather that hand tools can replace a membership to a gym ;...

There are so many ways on becoming an expert but as to what expertise it will be is difficult. The skill is a proficiency that needs practice and practice. Here are some of the expertise when dealing with woodworking. USING MITER JOINTSI was really moved by the way Martyn (Britboxmaker) have introduced the miter joint by using the 45 degree router bit. This is the most accurate way of making a box having a 90 degree folds on the sides. Any method will do. The first one let me do it ...

Building the shop #2: The beginning...

11-27-2011 12:39 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 4 comments »

Good day fellow dusty chippers,Short entry here – thought you’d like to see what I started with in the garage – the big mess… The picture is midstream in moving stuff around to find stuff to throw away and give away. Since the beginning of the big purge, I’ve made 6 trips to Salvation Army (so far), put countless objects on the end of the driveway with FREE signs on them and furnished 1/2 of house for the new family across the street. OK, may 1/3… seriously...
