Well, while going through the local Menards Store, went over and dug through there Value Wood rack…they were selling 1×10s and 1×12s, all under 3’ long. Picked through to get the clearer stuff. Wound up with five boards, for $1.69 each.. And, since the Single Brain Cell Sketch Up was “off-line” had to actually draw something on paper.. About as close to an actual “plan” as I get. Even drew a “page 2” Wore out the penci...
Well, fighting Windows Movie Maker and getting another one done. After three tries with Microsoft Support, including giving them remote access, I get told that WMM is not compatible with Win 10, and that just sucks. It keeps freezing up on me and I lose a lot of work and Microsoft just does not care. Of course the suggested I could buy something at the app store….yeah, right, I’ve seen the old bait and switch before. I have downloaded a free version of Lightworks but have not installed it yet...
and attached to the base. Needed an old drill to make some slots in the brackets.. I’d drill straight through, about in the middle of a bracket, then rock the bit back and forth to make a slot. Need the slot at 90 degrees to the length of the top. Just loose enough the screw can slide as the top moves. Now, once the four slots were drilled, I checked on the underside of the top…...no crayola stuff, still nasty. Time for one of these things, again.. A Stanley #4, this ...
After shopping for gates to corral our 11-month old crawler, my wife and I decided none of the available products provided the features we wanted. We also found the better units to be quite expensive. I began to think the “universal” nature of these things was limiting their ability to be very good at anything. Lots have a crossbar to trip over, others have strange latches, and none seemed like something we wanted to spend a bunch of money on. I spent some time in SolidWorks...
Few years back, salvaged parts from an old Meersman Coffee Table I found on a trash pile. had some black Walnut, and basically rebuilt it. Aprons were saved to be patterns, Legs cleaned up and reused. Let the GrandBRATS us it up in their room…....finally got the table back to my house… Yeah….Base was loose, missing a few screws. Will fix that after a bit. Markings in my finish!!! Crayola finish?? Well, decided that that mess just had to leave….Coarse ...
Just a short video on how the shop has changed and a surprise that was delivered that day. View on YouTube
Well, other than a Boss ordered shopping trip, spent a bit of time in the Dungeon Shop today..getting the rest of the base assembled. Diagonal clamp to pull this thing close to square. Had to make the corner blocks as well. Was just going to add a corner block to help glue up one short apron…..and kept going. Actually, I got to this point, and had to take the Boss shopping, then come back and fix supper….Finally got to work a bit more A smooth plane? Ah, not exact...
https://youtu.be/J5ZFaT5BOHc In this video, I make a key holder with scrap poplar.
And that is about it. wasted half a day with a Migraine…..kind of hard to work with half the body going numb. About evening or so….dug out some toys…saws? Front one is a rip, back one is crosscut. I even put a NEW blade in the old Atkins No. 50 coping saw! other tools? Well there is a Ohio Tool Co. hand plane there, a chisel or two, a mallet. Somewhere back there is a square or two, and a Stanley No.90 shoulder plane. Still trying to get that one tuned up just...
Already had some stock for the aprons. Cleared the panel of all the junk…well, most of it. Laid two legs onto the panel. I moved them in about 2” from the ends, and measured the space inbetween them. Added 1” for the 1/2” tenons…. Checked the stash, to see which two boards were at least that long. About…21-1/2” or so. Two were a tad short. Save those two for the ends. Set up the mitrebox to read 85 degrees. Set the bevel square to t...
