We all get them every once in a while. A day we consider to be 'perfect'.I am sure that description can very greatly from individual to individual, depending on peoples' goals, likes and taste. I think it even varies from day to day for everyone, as our lives and seasons are ever-changing as well.As I mentioned yesterday, I had an early eye doctor appointment that I had completely forgotten about. I had thought I posted the date in my Google Calendar, but apparently I did not, as ...
I had kind of a 'catch up' day yesterday. With all that had been going on lately and with getting the new patterns up on the site, I was beginning to feel a bit frazzled. So many things to do and so many directions to head. I didn't know what to do first. I find that if I don't give myself a little break from things, I really start to feel it. Then I wind up running in circles and becoming overwhelmed. After doing my usual chores, I decided to pick up a paint brush a...
A simple 2×4 and plywood work table. Easy to build. http://youtu.be/aujUjjXDPKA
I am just posting my journey for my upgrades to the Harbor Freight Dust collector I got. I have been using it stock except for the wynn filter cartridge and have been happy with it so far, however I have been getting some leaks and will smell the wood dust coming from the collector after cutting items. So I figured if I am going to seal the leaks, I better just build a whole new cart and add a Thien Separator. The first post here is detailing the Thien Separator. I went over to his we...
I am happy to say that I had a wonderful day yesterday. I was able to get my emails under control early on and I did have a chance to work on the Tracy Moreau seahorse design that I had shown you all in yesterday's post. We also had the bonus of Keith's mom coming to visit, as well as a pop-in visit from our friends Bernie and Ellen. Keith's mom makes the best potato salad in the world and she brought some to share for dinner. We caught up on chatting and she did her needlework wh...
Here’s a couple more pics of the progress I’ve made. I glued some veneer around the edges to fill in the gap between the fancy stuff and the edge where the board will transition into the sides. Then it was onto a lot of sanding. What I hadn’t expected was the dust from the Rosewood to stain the maple while sanding. So I sanded it down as good as I could without going through the veneer and then used a cabinet scraper to finish it off. I think it came out really nice and I ca...
I finally got around to drilling the dog holes in my bench (only a year late) and now it was time to make some bench dogs. Now I like traditional woodworking, but wanted something quick and easy. I will be making some traditional bench dogs, but here is the simplest bench dog ever. Check out the VIDEO HERE Please Subscribe to my channel for more woodworking and general DIY videos.
In this video I show how to make corn hole boards (also know as bean bag toss game). These boards are nice because you can fold the legs up easily for quick storage. Please Subscribe! Watch the video here!
Yesterday was a wonderful and beautiful day and it looks as though today will be the same. I think that spring has FINALLY arrived in Nova Scotia. I love the quiet of the early mornings. As I crossed the road to go to the trash bin and bring it to the side of the road for pickup, I could hear the birds happily singing as well as the river rushing by. The sun was warm and the air was cool and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. I know I live in an amazing place when even ta...
Well my boat finally got wet but not quite the way I’d hope its first taste of water would be. :-). The upside is that things are melting (slowly) here so maybe by the May long weekend I can really see how it will float!
