Humidors #4: Humidor # 2 - Learning from my mistakes (Bubinga and Walnut)

01-18-2016 04:08 PM by McPheel | 0 comments »

So after being so careful with my first humidor only to screw it up on the hinge install, I tried a few different techniques on some scrap for installing the hinges than decided to build another box. This time I decided I would do mitered corners with veneer splines for strength, since I didn’t want to mess around with edging. I had a beautiful piece of quarter sawn Bubinga that had been sitting on my rack for a few months now, begging to be turned into something. I decided it wanted...

Pine tool box, Stanley Style #1: Start ups

01-18-2016 01:38 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

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...

Shop stuff #31: Creating another video despite Microsoft

01-16-2016 11:47 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

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...

Rehabbed Walnut Coffee Table #3: Top is done...

01-15-2016 04:24 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

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 ...

Custom baby gates

01-12-2016 04:59 PM by Justin | 3 comments »

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...

Will fix that after a bit. Markings in my finish!!! Crayola finish?? Well, decided that that mess just had to leave….Coarse ...

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.

Somewhere back there is a square or two, and a Stanley No.90 shoulder plane. Still trying to get that one tuned up just...
