A journey into the workshop. #96: Air Compressor dump line, mistakes, home AC fixes and replacement tools...

04-14-2016 08:51 PM by dbhost | 0 comments »

So during my AC compressor dump line install, I messed up and managed to break my pressure gauge. So I went ahead and went to Harbor Freight again, and picked up a 200PSI filled gauge and a few replacement tools for those that are lost broken etc… I pressurized the system, and held it for 26 hours. Sadly the system went from 150PSI to 40PSI. I know what the problem is, the gague when threaded in all the way points down, so it is 1/2 turn loose on the compressor, Not sure how to f...

So, thanks to y’all that read these. I read yalls too! And… WOW are there some beautiful projects out there. French Cleat: Inspired by watching April Wilkerson on YouTube. This has been a real confidence builder. Since I’ve always loved technology and heard of sketch up from a random You...

Quick Update #3: Upcycling fences, countertop scraps, and a softener

04-13-2016 09:54 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

In this video I cover some recent acquisitions. I plan on upcycling an old cedar fence I got from a neighbor. I hope to make a video of the process. I got a used softener for free that I will install with my new tankless water heater, and I got some Corian cutoffs from a local supplier. I also cover the status of my projects and upcoming videos.Enjoy!

The Stanley 45 revivial #1: Starting up

04-13-2016 06:08 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

One of the best prizes I have ever got, was a wooden box from a fellow LJer named Doe. It contained a Canadian made, Stanely No.45, T-20. Twas a bit rusty, here and there. My “job” was to bring it back to life, and post a few pictures when done. The plane? And,thanks to the USPS playing “catch” with it, the lid came out of the mailing carton in 5 pieces. William was kind enough to nail the pieces back together. So, a rehab? Tried all the parts, to see...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1720: Site Update - Take 2

04-13-2016 12:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was one of those days when I felt as if I was running in circles. It wasn't bad at all, but there were just a lot of things on our plates and we were trying to accomplish a great deal in what seemed like a short amount of time.I know I said that our newsletter would go out by last evening, but we just didn't get that far. There was too much to do and by the time we got everything on the site, I was too tired and it was just too late.But all is not lost. Today is another day....

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1719: Planning a Change

04-12-2016 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am running late today because I got distracted. I don't believe I mentioned it here in my blog, but in a couple of months we are moving into a much bigger place. Most of you who follow me here in social media know that for the past seven years, we have been living and running our business out of a one bedroom apartment. While it is clean and nice and we have used our storage to the utmost efficiency, we both decided that it is getting too hard to do so with our business growing the way ...

TV stand #2: Measurements and cuts

04-08-2016 04:06 PM by TripleXDom | 2 comments »

From what I have spent this entire week working on was acquiring and perfecting my measurements. I plan on making the length up to 48 inches, the height up to 32 inches, and the width to 16 inches. I also had to measure my consoles and TV box but the way the plywood is cut they all fall into perfect increments. I haven’t actually gotten to start cutting or physically get a feel for what I’m gonna do because I have to gather the money so I can get the wood, which I plan on doing n...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1717: Overcoming Self-Doubt

04-07-2016 12:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As an artist, I am filled with self-doubt.I am not saying that to gain your pity or sympathy, or to fish for compliments, but I truly feel that way. It isn't that I don't like or enjoy what I create. Most of the time, I am pretty satisfied with my accomplishments. The longer that I do this (create and design) the more I understand that there are very, very few people who are able to pick up a certain type of media and create a "masterpiece" with little effort. As with most t...
